Swimsuit Layer and Roll Revealed for This Week's Rockman X DiVE's Update


Roll was teased a few days ago and we saw Layer's icon in yesterdays preview fort the "Summer Vacation for Lord of Snowy Plain" stage event. And today, the development team has released a new trailer showcasing both characters' skills in action.

Watch the trailer after the break!


Roll comes equipped with the "Water Shield", a shield that can protect her from enemy damage and deal damage as well. It looks like it could even be better than Ferham's "Crimson Shadow".

Her second skill is the "Swim Ring Hurl." Roll tosses her swim ring and it travels across the ground, damaging enemies in its path. After penetrating a target, the damage will be reduced to 50%.

Layer's two active skills are "Water Melon Slice" and "F-Splasher". "Water Melon Slice" cuts the enemy and spawns a watermelon at the same time. If the watermelon pieces touch the enemy, it will be rendered immobile. "F-Splasher" is a forward dash attack and damages all targets along the path. After using it three times, the next "F-Splasher" will increase dash speed and range.



The trailer also featured the latest gacha banner, too. Both characters as expected to be limited and they will share the banner with the Aqua Buster, a weapon based on none other than Aqua Man from Rockman 8.

And that's that. What do you think?

  1. I didn't think Roll would come out as the overpowered one.

    Handsome Guy as a Buster is also hilarious.

  3. It's kind of nice to see Layer's eyes for once. I wouldn't mind that hairstyle for future games.

    1. Her hairstyle is the only thing I like about poor Layer's new summer look! Capcom could have done better.

  4. This game is getting ridiculous and I hate it. I love Keizuke Mizuno's art, it's amazing and I think his art really reflects the spirit of the X series and should be used for future PROPER X games, like X9, but this dumb quick cash grab gachapon excuse of a game mobile app is ridiculous. I angrily save the Roll/Layer art for research and walk away!

    3. Gacha games are not great. They are a blight on gaming.

    5. I hope it will be soon; even though I play it now, I'd still like an official US release. I'd like to see it available in Japan, too, especially since Rockman originates from there.

    1. I don't think even Layer likes this swimsuit! XD

      If Capcom is going to keep that E rating, they shouldn't be so misleading to people. Nobody should have to be exposed to character abuse in this way, especially in an E game.

  8. Like with Alia,I Really hate the fact that Capcom gave these gals Shoes instead of Sandals. Sandals fit way better with swimwear anyway.

  9. Poor Layer ... I think that Jabba the Hut must've designed her swimsuit. I don't like it. :(

    Her overall design has never been my favorite, though I'm very fond of her character. :)

  10. Ya know, there's one thing I don't like about some of these alternate costumes…

    The robots in the Rockman series traditionally have, well… "tree trunk legs." This is a common trait that almost every artificial human character shares. But, as we saw with White Day Alia, and are seeing with the Summer Festival update… it seems like the people designing the models, and even the art, are ignoring this in favor of making more attractive designs, I guess?

    I dunno. Maybe, I just like big ol' shoes, or somethin'.

    1. Thankfully these alternate costumes are pretty easy to ignore since you have to press the "skins" button to be able to view them at all; otherwise I might quit the game because I try to avoid games with indecent exposure. :(

  11. Definitely I don't like Layer. What are you doing Capcom?

    1. I don't dislike Layer the character; I'm really quite fond of her though I like Iris better.

      But that swimsuit is really taking it too far!! They're ruining her image!! Please change the design, Capcom, and make X DiVE more family-friendly!!

  12. i like roll and layer(especially with how her cute eyes are showing.i love layer & alia and i love that they're playable in another game alongside roll, though i hope iris & pallete gets some love as i like them too,maybe with some artwork of them all together.:3) being together,though i miss the outfits for the navigators in the legacy collection.(if pallete gets an outfit i at least hope it's her legacy outfit.)

    would love to see one for the maverick hunters and classic/protoman(especially if he had his helmet off.:3)and kinda funny seeing aqua man as an item(would love to see robot masters as bosses/playable characters.)
