Today, Kotobukiya's blog updated with some very tantalizing information that they shared during the show Shizuoka Hobby Show earlier this month. It flew under our radar then but, now that it's online, we've got the detail.

So the first bit of news (and the most important) is that the third model kit under the Rockman X Plastic Model Series will be revealed at Summer Wonder Festival 2019 July, 28th. No further details are given.

Second, Kotobukiya also revealed the final design for the A2 Stage Background Sheet. You can get this by preordering the X Model Kit in Kotobukiya Japan's online store. The image is based on the opening stage of Rockman X6.The final design is noticeably different from the prototype they revealed months ago.
Third, Kotobukiya shared the first official product image for the Rockman X3 Max Armor model kit and gave us the official name of the "Gold Armor" Model Kit: Max Armor Hyper Chip Version. Both kits will come with different accessories. The Hyper Chip Ver. will be sold (in Japan) exclusively through the Kotobukiya Online Store. It's planned to ship around the same time as the Max Armor kit. This is good news as, unlike the normal version and charge shot version of X, there won't be a gap between.
Finally, Kotobukiya shared via Twitter clean artwork drawn by Keiske Mizuno for the Charge Shot Version packaging:
