The Rockman DASH Series is Coming to Rockman X DiVE

Announced via social media today, the Rockman DASH series is coming to Rockman X DiVE! Content from the DASH series could arrive as soon as next Tuesday, based on how the development team made similar announcements in the past.

While there's no additional details about the event beyond the announcement itself, you can expect to see an A rank character obtainable by playing the event stage. In this particular case, that character would be none other than Rock Volnutt. There will be a secondary, S rank character obtainable exclusively through the event banner, too, and an S rank weapon as well.

Who is going to be the second playable character? Perhaps Roll Caskett or Tron Bonne? Let's us know who you're wishing for in the comments!

Premium Collectibles Studios Acquires Mega Man License for High-End Statues

Premium Collectibles Studios (né Pop Culture Shock Collectibles) has acquired the license to develop products based on the Mega Man IP, the company announced.

As their namesake implies, PCS manufacturers high-end statues based on popular movie, comic, cartoon and video game properties. For an example of their work, see their take on MMPR Red Ranger, Optimus Prime, Spider-Man, Zangeif and Michael Myers. Good stuff. 

So long story short, we can expect to see some nifty Mega Man things from these fine folks in the near future. No further details are available.

Stay tuned!

Listen to the Music From the Unreleased Wily & Light's RockBoard Game Boy Port

All 15 individual tracks from the newly discovered, unreleased Game Boy port of Wily & Light's RockBoard: That's Paradise! are now available for your listening pleasure. 

Courtesy of our friend VixyNyan, you can download the complete soundtrack from good 'ol Rockman Perfect Memories here. Each piece is individually ID tagged, too. And fun fact: the soundtrack was composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto. He's best known for his work on Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XII, Gunstar Heroes and Vagrant Story!

If you're just catching up, a cancelled and unreleased Game Boy port of RockBoard surfaced early this month during the latest round of "Nintendo Gigaleaks." The game is a near 1:1 port of its Famicom sibling -- multiplayer included. The port was developed between 1993-1994 by defunct Japanese developer Dual.

Based on initial findings, Game Boy RockBoard made it very far in development. In fact, it was cancelled sometime after getting into Lot Check. In other words, a commercial release was within reach. We do not know why it was cancelled, though. Chalk this one up to the many Mega Man mysteries.

Many thanks to VixyNyan and nensondubois_!

New Info on Arcade1Up's Mega Man Plug & Play Collection

It's been a whole eight months since we last saw Arcade1Up's officially-licensed Mega Man plug & play "console". The device was initially revealed at CES... and then radio silence. Granted, we are living in the middle of a pandemic.

Anyway, new information on this oddity has finally come to light! By way of YouTube channel COOLTOY, we have brand-new images of the "Mega Man Collection" console and its drastically redesigned controller. What's more, we also have confirmation that the console will include Mega Man 1 through Mega Man 6. No surprises there, really.

There is no current information on how much this thing will cost, let alone when it will hit retail. You might want to keep an eye on Arcade1Up's website in the meantime. Stay tuned!
