Old & New Rockman EXE Goodies to be Featured in Fukkan's 20th Anniversary "Treasure Box"

Hot on the heels of the Rockman EXE manga reprint announcement from a few weeks ago, Fukkan have unveiled the "Rockman EXE Treasure Box". As the name implies, it's a box filled with EXE goodies that will most certainly please hardcore fans. 

Find all the details after the break!



The package - whose full title is Rockman EXE Treasure Box -Celebrate! 20th Anniversary Treasure Box- will be released in late April for 16.500 Yen (roughly 128€ or $153).

Inside, you'll find a mix of old items and new items created for this occasion. The content of the box is as follows:

 

1. Rockman EXE no Subete Official Settei Shiryoushuu (Limited Reprint)

A 192-page official setting materials book release originally released in 2006. It includes a detailed look at the world, characters and story from the first game in the series up to Phantom of Network.

The book originally came with a special " Cyber Beast Gregar (Greiga)" e-card to use in Rockman EXE 6 which is unlikely to find its way to this reprint.

 

2. Rockman EXE Folded Postcard Set

Six folded postcards for a total of 12 individual postcards selected from the official postcard books released between 2004 and 2005. 

Five postcard books were released, from the first entry in the series up to Rockman EXE 5, with more than 150 postcards total. It will be interesting to see which ones they select.

 

3. Reproduction of an original illustration drawn by Ryo Takamisaki  for the 20th Anniversary.

I think he needs no introduction, but Takamisaki is the author and illustrator of the Rockman EXE and Rockman 11 manga. The reproduction will be printed in B5 size, likely the typical Shitajiki.

 

4. Special Booklet

This booklet with come packed with a brand new, 25-page manga with the tentative title of "Blues' Runaway" drawn by Ryo Takamizaki. What's more, at the end of the booklet, you will find the 15th Anniversary developer roundtable discussion conducted by Inside-Games back in 2016 with extra content!

This interview was translated by our friends from The Rockman EXE Zone a few years ago, so check it here.

 

5. Reproduction of an original illustration drawn by Minho Asada for the 20th Anniversary.

Same deal as above, but this time a new illustration drawn by the Battle Story Rockman EXE manga author.

 

6. PET design sticker

Self explanatory. It's a sticker with the design of a PET to decorate your smartphone. The design displayed by Fukkan is a carbon copy of a die-cut pass case released in 2016. You may remember this design from Rockman EXE 5's Progress PET too.

 

7. A beautiful box to store all the above items in!

  1. I have been writing enka about Battle Network. Last night, I took an enka titled "Rockman EXE" and included rokokyu narrative singing. I am now writing a song about Lan and Chaud or Netto to Enzan.
