Before hitting it big with Eyesheild 21 and One-Punch Man, manga artist Yusuke Murata was but a child when he won the Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5 boss design contests. His winning sketches became Dust Man and Crystal Man, respectively. He was 12-years-old at the time.
Years later, Murata has found international acclaim. And yet he will be a fan of Mega Man no matter where his career takes him.
According to Capcom Japan's licensee relations page, the company have begun recruiting partners to help produce a range of Mega Man-related goods for several upcoming anniversaries. The next few years look to be pretty promising for collectors...
Whether you love or hate Mega Man X6, I think the majority will agree its English localization was a hot mess (except this. That was pure gold.) It's truly unfortunate because there's actually a good story underneath all that hogwash. That's why a one DuoDynamo has set out to re-translate the game from the ground up.
Bandai have been pumping out a ton of Rockman figures lately, and it seems that trend may continue. Right now, Bandai are asking fans about which video game, manga or anime series they would like to see a Shodo figure of. The Rockman series is among the twenty available choices.
From what I've been able to gather, access to the poll is currently customers who purchased any of the latest Dragon Ball Z Shodo figures. The figures come with a QR code that, when scanned, take you to the online poll. So unless you own one of these figures, you can't participate (for now). We'll keep you posted if anything changes on that front.
David Siller, creator of Maximo: Ghosts to Glory and former head of Capcom Digital Studios, has given Mega Man fans new insight into a lost project: a proposed, but ultimately ill-fated 3D Mega Man hack 'n slash.

Shown briefly at Good Smile's New York Comic Con panel, here's our first look at the Mega Man.EXE Nendoroid. The presentation confirms at least two buster parts - regular shot and a sword - and an interchangeable battle mask faceplate.
Just in time for the Halloween season, Capcom have rolled out a batch of free Monster Hunter Generations costume DLC for October. The Mega Man Felyne gear is included, allowing you to dress your Palico in classic Blue Bomber duds. As a nice touch, the Mega Man gear changes colors at the end of each combo. It includes familiar sound effects, too, like a charging Mega Buster, Metal Blade, and life recharge (complete with an E-tank to drink).
Best of all, the DLC is entirely free. It doesn't get any better than that! You can check out the full list of DLC gear and quests at Capcom Unity.
The Super Nintendo classic Mega Man X2 is bound to hit the North American New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console today, Nintendo confirms. It will set you back a cool $7.99. Don't miss this chance to witness Green Biker Dude die again!
With Mega Man Battle Network's 15th anniversary drawing to a
close by year's end, I thought a little contest might be a nice way to
cap things off. Starting today until January 1st, 2017, you'll have the
chance to win both a 4Inch-Nel Mega Man.EXE figure and a 4Inch-Nel Lite Lan set. Both figures! Best of all? I will ship this sweet package anywhere in the world.
To enter, simply shoot an email to RockmanCornerContests AT gmail.com with the subject "4Inch Nels". No message body necessary; one submission per person, please.
Now, because we don't know the specific release date for Lan, I can't give you a definitive answer when you're winning package will ship. Regardless, I will close submissions on January 1st (12AM est) and choose a random winner.
With that out of the way, have at it! Feel free to use the comments section for any questions. Good luck!
