Rockman VR: Targeted Virtual World!! - First Teaser Trailer

Capcom Japan have released a near-minute long teaser trailer for Rockman VR: Targeted Virtual World!!, the upcoming virtual reality attraction at Plaza Capcom Store Ikebukuro. The attraction will be playable exclusively at Plaza Capcom - nowhere else - starting July 18th.

Rockman VR pits players in the role of Rockman as they take down a swarm of enemies, Block Man and eventually Dr. Wily himself! It's all done from a first-person perspective. Rockman 11's Double Gear System will play a key role, too.

The experience will run for 25 minutes. The length factors in both prep time and a how-to-play explanation from Plaza Capcom staff. So while it's not actuall  25-minutes worth of gameplay, participants can expect at least 15 minutes of VR goodness.

Ticket reservations are currently being accepted directly from Capcom. One tickets costs 1,500 yen. It's the most inexpensive of Capcom's other virtual reality attractions at Plaza Capcom, actually.

Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to see some gameplay. Stay tuned!

Rockman VR Announced - Virtual Reality Experience Coming to Plaza Capcom (Update)

Capcom Japan have announced Rockman VR: The Targeted Virtual World!!, a brand-new virtual reality experience coming to the Plaza Capcom Ikebukuro store in a few weeks. I repeat: this is a virtual reality experience, not a home console title.

The attraction will reportedly have players arming themselves with a "real" Rock Buster to take down various enemies from Rockman 11. Rockman VR will be playable exclusively at Plaza Capcom's VR-X suite starting July 18th, 2020.

Here's the plot synopsis:

 "A peaceful VR world where everyone was having fun.... and Dr. Wily is planning to hack and conquer it! Oh, Rockman, put on the VR goggles developed by Dr. Right and enter the VR world to stop Dr. Wily's ambitions!"

More Rockman VR details are expected to be unveiled soon. And before anyone asks, no; this is not the "next major game" that's been in development since at least early 2019. Rockman VR is intended to be an attraction, limited to a very specific venue. The "major title" is currently being spearheaded by Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and his team at Capcom Japan.

UPDATE: According to Tsuchiya, the Double Gear system will play a large role in the experience. What's more, it will be in first person.

New Mega Man X Cards Introduced With Teppen's Latest Card Pack "Adventures of a Tiny Hero"

It's been a while since we talked about Teppen. The last time was at the beginning of March with the release of Zero and the "Hunted By Memories" card pack. After March, development of the game slowed down due the spread of COVID-19. Fortunately some normalcy is settling in and developer GungHo Online are ready to launch both a new hero and card pack.

The new hero, Felyne from the Monster Hunter series, arrived with a new card pack that includes10 brand-new Mega Man X-themed cards. And as usual, we're bringing you the clean card artwork and flavor text (spoken in Felyne tongue, no less) to enjoy. Check them out after the break!
