Rockman 11 One-Shot Manga Sample Pages (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Check out the translated pages here! Thanks, Midori!

By way of Rockman Unity, here's a few pages from the recent Rockman 11 one-shot manga by Ryo Takamisaki. These pages appear to cover the game's initial moments: Dr. Wily's army wreaking havoc upon a city and Dr. Light imparting the tale of the Double Gear system to his children.

The 26-page, single chapter story is now available to read within the pages of September's Coro Coro Aniki. You can order the issue from Amazon Japan here. There are no current plans for additional chapters nor an official English-language adaptation.

I'm more than positive a scanlation will appear down the road, though. Stay tuned!

Mega Man 11 "Wily Numbers Instrumental" Preview Tracks

Here's a small sampling of the Wily Numbers Instrumental tracks that come with pre-order copies of Mega Man 11. The video above covers Block Man, Fuse Man, and Impact Man themes.

For the uninitiated, these are alternate tracks that play during the game. The only method to obtain them (so far) is via pre-order. So if you've got your copy of Mega Man 11 reserved, these themes will be available to you at launch!

Coro Coro Aniki Issue Featuring Rockman 11 Manga Now Available

Want to check out Ryo Takamisaki's one-shot Rockman 11 manga? For 720 yen (plus shipping), you can import a copy of this month's Coro Coro Aniki which is featuring the 26-page story. Grab it from Amazon Japan here.

And because it can't be said enough, bear in mind that this is a one-shot. There are no plans for additional chapters. That, too, also makes it unlikely the manga will be translated in English. Official, that is. I'm sure there's some crafty, well-versed-fellow among you capable of translating it. And when you do, send it my way. I'll spread the good word.

Thanks for the tip, Vhyper1985!

Confirmed on today's Nintendo Direct, the Mega Man 11 Amiibo and the original Mega Man Amiibo can be used to receive E-Tanks and "other useful" once per day in-game. And that's it.

Mega Man 11's Impact Man Will Be Known As "Pile Man" in Japan

According to a recent update on the official Rockman 11 website, Impact Man has an entirely different name overseas: Pile Man. Not counting the Crash Man/Clash Man debate, this is the first time in the franchise's history where a Robot Master has a significantly different name between English/Japanese versions.

No reason for the change was disclosed. Perhaps the localizers thought "impact" better reflected his abilities? Maybe they thought "pile" carried some kind of connotation? Who knows – it's up for speculation.

Beyond the whole name thing, the website also brings us some new information about Impact/Pile Man himself. According to his profile, Impact/Pile Man's body "consists of three pile driver robots who call themselves the Impact Brothers: Kui-ichiro, Kui-jiro, and Kui-saburo." That's pretty neat, yeah? You can read more about the big guy here

While you're at it, check out some voice samples: Japanese version here, English version here.
