Concept artist Kang Dong Hwa recently posted some previously unseen Rockman Online artwork to his personal webpage. He's provided new pieces for Gaia, the floating fortress Atlas, and some areas we haven't seen before. I've included these images after the break.
Given the rather slow updates with the game this past year, you have to wonder why these pieces showed up at Mr. Kang's place instead of the game's official site.
UPDATE: According to the artist himself, Rockman Online is probably cancelled. See, the only reason he's able to post this art publicly is because the project has been dropped. I had a feeling that was the case.
However, pending an official announcement from NeoWiz we can't officially confirm Online's demise just yet. Still, it's very much possible. And honestly, is anyone really surprised? It's been nearly a whole year since there's been an update on the game. Further, it was reported in May that NeoWiz was undergoing a company-wide downsizing due to fledging business. Online's fate was pretty much sealed.
UPDATE 2: Mr. Kang removed the post that implied the game was dropped. This could mean a number of things, but I'm inclined to believe he jumped the gun before NeoWiz made the news official. We'll just have to wait and see.
