Today marks the tenth anniversary of the Mega Man ZX series, which first released in Japan on July 6th, 2006. Mega Man ZX is regarded as a worthy extension to the Mega Man Zero. The game iterates on the template of Mega Man Zero 1, refining and expanding the concept of interconnected stages. What's more, it's also the first traditional Mega Man game to introduce a playable female protagonist.
Although considered the least successful of all Mega Man series, ZX is not without its admirers - a small but devoted group of fans pumping out art, garage kits, and musical remixes even today. Mega Man ZX 3 may be a distant pipe dream, but you can count on these guys to pick up Capcom's slack. So to you ZX fans out there, this is your day of celebration.
