Rockman Set To Invade Japanese Theme Park


Capcom is teaming up with popular amusement park Hanayashiki for a month-long Rockman event dubbed "Rockman: The Schemed for Hanayashiki!?"

Beginning September 13th, park-goers will be treated to Rockman-themed food and activities. The promotional event includes a stamp rally wherein patrons can win nifty prizes (look! A Rockman cartridge eraser). Specially themed postcards will be given away, too, featuring "Rockman x Hanayashiki" collaboration art. Food-wise, well, it's what you'd expect: an entire menu devoted to Rockman dishes. "Cut Man Curry", "Elec Man's Thunderale", "Fire Man's Fire Storm Pot Stickers". The list, for better or worse, goes on.

Check it out after the jump!


(No, you can't eat these)

Here's some of the delicacy set to be available at "Wily's". Translation courtesy of Heat Man (via GoNintendo):



"Rock-men" Ramen and "Cut Man's Curry Udon."



"Guts Man's Mini Cream Puffs", "Elec Man's Thunderale"


"Fire Man's Fire Storm Pot Stickers, Bomb Man's Hyper Bomb Rice Ball"


"Ice Man's Ice Splasher" and E-Can 280ml sports drink


So if you're in Japan between September 13th and October 26th, drop on by Hanayashiki n Asakusa, Tokyo for some Mega-fun. For everyone else, Gamer's got a nice gallery of all the goodies you'll be missing out on. Check it out.

    1. It's the tip of Raichu's tail. That design originated from Raichu don't you know?

    2. You're an idiot. Mega Man came out years before Pokemon did. And no, that design originated from a common symbol of a lightning bolt.

    3. Raichu? *facepalm* ⚡ That mark can be seen in Elecman's chest since his first appearance in 1987, and it is a common electricity symbol that existed way before that.

    4. Uh, that was a joke. Someone in a Xover post claimed a similar shape was a rip on Raichu. This anon is joking.

    5. God, you people are dense if you thought that anon wasn't being sarcastic. For goodness sake there's a picture of Elec Man on Famicom style box art right above, clearly displaying a similar shape on his head. All Classic NES MM games predate 1996 on release, heck all SNES MMX games predate 1996.

    6. In the Xover post the joke makes sense and fits, here it didn't and the meaning was lost. How would someone know it was a joke or sarcasm? It could also be a noob or a kid posting.

    7. How could somebody be presented with a referential opportunity without being outside of what was referenced in the first place? This Lighting Bolt symbol JOKE was in reference to what people were saying about Raichu, mocking their reasoning from that other post.

      No anon 6, you just got caught off gaurd, just admit that the obvious joke flew right over your head. I got it (well to be fair I posted a comment in that Xover post), the anon above me got it. You guy's just jump to OMG this guy is sooo dumb for not knowing the extremely obvious, mindset too fast.
