Rockman 11 Red Bull Collaboration Announced


Capcom and Red Bull Crashed Ice Yokohama have announced a special Rockman 11 collaboration to commemorate the franchise's 30th anniversary. I mean, excuse me?




So yeah; this is a thing.

The collaboration includes a special website which introduces fans to "Red Bull Rockman" – a souped-up, Red Bull powered version of the Blue Bomber. What's more, the website includes an exclusive 8-bit mini-game, which challenges you to to an ice skating race against the one and only Tundra Man. As you race, you can pick up cans of Red Bull to turn into Red Bull Rockman for a short period of time. When transformed, Rockman is invulnerable to enemies and stage hazards. You move quicker, too!

Players with the best times are entered into a drawing to win special Rockman 11 and Crashed Ice swag (Japan-only). Also, if you manage to beat Tundra Man something neat happens. Beware – you might not be able to beat this challenge! ;^)

Anyway, this collab is so out there and pretty hilarious for some reason. It feels like Rockman is more of a "concept" here. Like, "If he drinks a Red Bull this is the outfit + special weapon he gets (wings).". I dunno. Hey, at least we got an official 8-bit Tundra Man sprite out of it!

If you've got a couple minutes to kill, give it a spin here!

    1. Exactly. It's weird. Makes no sense and I'm ok with that.

  6. is there a legal way to defeat airman? he is way too fast and the red bull is useless when you get it almost near the end of the stage.

    1. Click and drag your mouse to dash. Careful though because Air Man will attack if you're in the lead.

    2. The trick is to not get too far ahead until you get to the Red Bull. Dash to keep up with Air Man, and just focus on avoiding the obstacles. Once you get the Red Bull, you are invincible and have infinite dash, so just dash to the end before the Red Bull runs out. It took me a while to figure out a pattern that would safely get me to the Red Bull, but then I finished the post-Red Bull portion of the level on my first try.

  7. Is Thundra Man 8 bit sprite legit from Capcom ? Curiosity. I have seen many fan made Thundra Man 8 bit but is this actually from Capcom legit sprite ? It would be nice.

  8. That's cool, but Red Bull is one of the most disgusting things out there.

    1. Very true. Red Bull need to be banned. It is so disgusting and unnatural things out there!!!

    2. Why should Red Bull be banned because you don't like it?

  10. Could I get a game where Mega Man has wings that focuses on double jumps, floating, and other platforming mechanics like that please?

    Thanks.

    1. So basically Mega Man meets Kid Icarus?

  11. So ugly, it had to be advertised more than once. Family Guy also did a segment on Red Bull. I don't see how this will help other than to celebrate 40th anniversary of MegaMan. But I suppose that's a given. Just a poor, disgusting drink though.

  12. I finally beat Airman, it took me some time to realize you can hold click and drag to Dash

  13. it's japan, so it is far from being the strangest colab i have seen. The stuff they make for anime like Evangelion, for exemple, make this look like perfectly ordinary.
    My main issue with it would be that i really dislike the taste of RedBull.

    ReplyDelete
  14. thats cool. like the are.
    if it were dlc i'd buy one.

    however i personally find the taste of red bull very very bad. but i could always just poor it down the toilet.

  15. Nice Minigame. how long will it stay playable. is the 2018.12.07 date the end of the event?

  16. That artwork is actually pretty dang impressive. This may be the zaniest collab to date (FFXV x Cup Noodles doesn't hold a candle to this now).
