  1. Compared to what we got for Shooting Star and Zero, that's extremely plain...

    I'm trying to make out all of the logos at the bottom. I believe they are...

    (Top row): EXE1, EXE2, EXE3, EXE3 Black, Transmission, BCGP, EXEWS, EXE4 Red, EXE4 Blue

    (Bottom row): EXE4.5, PoN, EXE5 Blues, EXE5 Colonel, EXE5DS, EXE6 Greiga, EXE6 Falzar, LoN, OSS

  2. Actually, EXEWS may not be on there. That may be BCGP and N1 side-by-side... I really can't tell.

  3. What will this have that others don't?

    All the Japanese game logos have already been uploaded here.

  5. This will probably have the vast majority of EXE's concept art all in one place, unlike even the Himitsu book which didn't have quite a bit, not to mention Legend of Network stuff. Most other stuff was spread out between books. We might get some good art of Reverse and Trojan Horse from this.

  6. I may pick this up. I didn't enjoy the gameplay of EXE but I did like the character design quite a bit. Well thought out and rather crisp.

  7. @Khorosho: Good word. "Crisp." That's why I like EXE's character design.

  8. This doesn't mean that this is the end of EXE does it? Please no? Ptotodude can u answer this question?

  9. Well, I really can't say.

    We use to assume these books meant the end of a series, but remember, we got MM9 after R20 OCW came out.

  11. I love how Rockman's expression and body language is all like 'Well, it's about time!'
    I'll definitely be getting this.

  12. As tempting as it sounds to have more books in crazy moon language I think I'll probably wait to hear from Udon on this one. XP

  13. In recent years, there have been more art book and soundtrack releases than actual games. As much as I'm looking forward to the book, I'm getting annoyed with this trend. When will we get a new Mega Man game?

  14. Can someone please tell me the name of the font they used to type "ROCKMAN.EXE"? I have searched high and low and have only found a SIMILAR one, "Newtown" which isn't as crisp and has pixel problems. This font is seen in countless media objects. Movies, games. X8 for example uses it. I also think Halo does. As much as am excited about this book, I would greatly appreciate the true font finding!

  15. Gosh that'd be swell to have in English wouldn't it? ;)
