June 9th is here, and Capcom is commemorating "Rockman Day" with the release of a special desktop wallpaper. Available in three sizes, the illustration features every Rockman from each series striking a pose amidst a single, powerful message: They Will Always Be By Your Side.
You can download the wallpaper directly at the Japanese Devroom here. No doubt Greg will get this up on the English Devroom soon, but why wait? It can be yours now!
As discussed in an earlier post, Rockman Day is a bit of a new "holiday" celebrated by Japanese fans, a play on the Japanese words for June 9th; "6" (roku) and "9" (ku) are pronounced "rokku" when combined. Rokku= Rock, i.e Rockman. For those interested, you can read up on the day's complete history right here.
This year, 2011, marks the first time Capcom has recognized the holiday officially. There's no tradition or ritual set in place Rockman Day; it's all for fun. Simply celebrate by indulging in Rockman-related activities -- games, comics, whatever! It's our day.
