Rockman X DiVE Datamine Unearths Four More Playable Characters


Now that the closed beta trial is live, it was only a matter of time before fans started digging into Rockman X DiVE's code for any hidden goodies. Sure enough, we found evidence of four unannounced playable characters: Black Zero, Steel Massimo, Second Armor X, and Cinnamon. Full resolution of these images can be found right here.

These characters are NOT playable in the closed beta. However, the existence of both portrait and full-body artwork heavily implies that they will be in the final game. Hurray!

Once again, I'm inclined to remind you that there is no set number of characters for the final game's roster. As a matter of fact, these images follow a strict three-digit designation. For example, Palette is "ch_013" and the copy Zero is "ch_026". That's thirteen unknown characters between them with the possibility of +100 different characters overall.

Rockman X DiVE is designed with longevity in mind – many characters are expected to appear over the next several months to years (if the game is fortunate enough to last that long). And remember:  Capcom Taiwan are taking requests, too. You never know who we'll see next!

  1. Their models are also in the game assets. Also been finding some really neat surprises as far as future content.

  2. I'd almost reconsider everything I've said about this game if I can play as STEEL MASSIMO in a platforming title.

  3. Wow, that would be like the first OFFICIAL Black Armor Zero artwork. Not a recolor.
    That's pretty cool.

    Wasn't Cinnamon already announced though? More or less?

    1. Cinamon was featured in a promo art, which sorta revealed that she would be in the game, but she has not been officially announced yet.

  5. I hope when the second armor releases we can finally know what name to give that armor at last.

    1. Giga Armor, last I saw, was not canon but community given.
      Fans call X1 the Light Armor or X2 the Giga Armor, but that's just because.

  6. It's worth pointing out that the memory of Massimo can actually be found in the game itself, when you hit Research Level 2. https://i.imgur.com/cHMUvYn.jpg

  11. Good to see Massimo in here. i was expecting his appearance given how much CM representation there is in this game, but i was wondering how long it would be before we see him.

  12. Is anyone else stuck on Ricos weapon upgrade showcase? Whenever I try to upgrade the weapons HP like she shows, the upgrade button is yellowed out, and whenever I try to go back home she just starts the process all over again. I cant select anything else. I've upgraded OTHER weapons but I still cant get out of this tutorial, and capcom Taiwan hasnt responded to my help request either.

  13. What are the keys to decrypt files or is there XOR?

  14. The images have a bunch of artefacts on them, and since they are lossless formats in PNG I don't know why they are like that. Disappointed but still better than cropped, with logo and other types of obfuscation. Missed opportunity to get the highest definitive version of these images early and out of the way tho.

    Copy Zero (X2 Black Zero colors for X4-X6 Black Zero)

    X1 Vile (Sigma's mark instead of his own)
    Vile MK-II and Vile V might be better as separate characters?

    1. Bison Sigma meaning Dictator or Boxer? I'm guessing you mean Dictator but I just want to make sure. I'd definitely be interested in seeing something like that and there was a robotic Dictator skin in SF4 so it'd be neat to see something akin to the inverse of that.
