Oh boy. Oh man. Bandai just tossed up one doozy of a teaser. It's a little too early to call it but, it could point to X-Hunter figures... or Bit and Byte. Either way, something interesting is afoot.
Bandai launched this teaser page this evening with the following message:
In English it reads:
Orange text: "Damn that X! I guess it's no surprise considering that he defeated Sigma before."
White text: "We can't leave this to our underlings... We'll just have to defeat him ourselves!"
So there's a couple things going on here. One, the font used is straight from the SNES games. That narrows these characters down to Mega Man X1 to X3. And two, these characters certainly speak as rivals to X. I immediately thought of the X-Hunters but that's a group of three – Violen, Serges and Agile. However, it's two individual characters talking in the message. Bit and Byte, maybe?
Like I said, it's a little too early to call it. Fortunately we won't have to wait too long; the veil will be lifted on July 20th.
