According to a new annual report released today, Capcom are aiming to release new mobile software based on Mega Man - in addition to Monster Hunter and Sengoku Basara - next fiscal year starting April 2017. At least four titles from these brands are currently in development from Capcom's newly reformatted mobile department. These games were previously said to launch by the end of fiscal year March 2017.
With the successful launch of these four titles, Capcom hope to achieve net sales of 4 billion yen (up 21.2% from the previous fiscal year). Only time will tell.

Hot on the heels of the Tokyo Game Show, Gentinel have begun accepting pre-orders for the 4Inch-Nel Lite Lan Hikari set. The figure + Mega Man.EXE upgrade accessories will set you back 5,400 Yen or roughly $52 US. The set is expected to ship in January 2017.
Before you buy I must remind you again the Lan figure itself is *not* articulated (hence the 'Lite' title). It's the same size and proportionate to the previous Mega Man.EXE figure, however.
(UPDATE: Several readers have pointed out the checkout page does not load. Check back again a bit later)

No Mega Man games at this year's Tokyo Game Show (a show of hands if you're surprised) but look at this! It's Good Smile Company's Mega Man X Nendoroid - in color! We've known about this figure for a little while now and according to this sign at TGS, pre-orders should be going live relatively soon. No doubt we'll see additional hi-res images in time, too.
For the uninitiated, the figure is based on X's First Armor. There are no plans for a vanilla X from Nendoroid at this time. A Nendoroid based on Mega Man.EXE is also in development.
