Although Rockman X DiVE's one-year anniversary festivities started a week ago (and will continue until the end of the month) the development team chose this week to bring the big guns ahead of March 24th, the game's actual anniversary date.
You can find all the details after the break!
Your eyes are not deceiving you: RiCO is going to be a playable "Hunter Program" this week!
RiCO's first active skill is Data Recreation, which allows her to deploy an information window to pull a random skill from either Ultimate Armor X (Plasma Charge Shot), Awakened Zero (Genmu Zero) or Iris (Peaceful Wish).
Her second active skill is Data Analysis, which deploys a force-field that inflicts damage and absorbs energy from an enemy. What's more, one of her passive skills will "randomly remove a buff when hitting a target with your weapon attack"
RiCO will be available from the DiVE Festival gacha starting this Thursday until April 1st. She is an S rank character.
If RiCO wasn't exciting enough or you don't have the EM necessary to attempt getting her, well, fear not. Know that you will not leave the one-year anniversary festivities empty handed!
The development team is giving players the new A rank character, X -Rising Fire-, for free. The only thing you have to do is participate in the ViA's Deep Log Training event and gets the point necessary to claim him.
You can see X -Rising Fire- in motion here and the event's boss fight against ViA (which appears to be using Zero's best moves) here.
Finally, RiCO will receive a skin that players can get by competing against each other in the event online ranking.
Is this fitting for the game's one-year anniversary? Let us know in the comments!
