Rockman-san and Rockman-chan Volume 1 Up for Pre-Order

Last December, it was announced that both Rockman-san and Rockman-chan would receive the physical tankobon treatment. And sure enough, Amazon Japan recently began accepting pre-orders! You can find Rockman-san volume 1 here and Rockman-chan volume 1 here.  

At the moment, both titles are eligible to be shipped abroad. All you need is an Amazon Japan account and you're golden. They're expected to ship on March 4th for 704 yen a piece.

No word yet on the possibility of an official English localization. That would probably fall under Udon's territory so... go bug Matt. The fan-translations are readily available in the meantime.

Rockman-san Chapter 18 Now Available

In Rockman-san's previous chapter, Enker returned after saving Rock and Guts Man's life in the construction site incident. However, the Rockman Killer was still troubled with his "purpose in life". Faced with the impossibility of killing Rock, he asked Rock to kill him.

But Rock had a better idea. Just like he did with other Robot Masters in previous chapters, Rock helped Enker find a new purpose. After showing him how to socialize in the "Robot Bar 8-bit" or enjoying the treats of the "Robot Resort", the gang eventually came up with a solution: Enker would become Dr. Light's bodyguard.

In the latest chapter, Dr. Light has built a new battle suit for Rock, capable of protecting him from anti-robot bullets. With Enker now living in Dr. Light's lab, there's no one better to give the suit a test run.

Rockman X DiVE Steam Version Drops in Canada, US and Mexico Tomorrow

On more than one occasion, NebulaJoy stated they had no plans to release an official English version of Rockman X DiVE on Steam. However, Capcom Taiwan are taking it upon themselves to bring the game to PC owners in Canada, US and Mexico, the developer announced. One can only hope that Europe, Japan and other regions will follow suit.

If it wasn't apparent already, this will be the original Taiwan version run by Capcom Taiwan, not the Global Version by NebulaJoy. You can play with your existing Taiwan version account or start from scratch. Progress cannot be transferred from the NebulaJoy Global Version

The game is expected to be available to download tomorrow, January 20th at 4:00 (UTC+8). Keep an eye on this page for updates.

Rockman-chan Episode 16 (Part 2) Now Available

The second part of Rockman-chan's sixteenth chapter delves into the next generation robots created by Dr.Light. The good doctor made five prototypes, each modeled after one of his personality traits.

#1 is a compulsive liar, #4 has something for using elevators, #6 is frank and to the point, #8 is inventive (but as a consequence, can only consider his ideas and no one elses) and #10 trait is intelligence but lacks combat capabilities.

In the end, following some trial and tribulation with #8, Dr. Light decides that #10 will be the champion of the future.

Meanwhile, Dr. Wily is working on a robot based on Rockman's design. He incorporates Roll's hair, Auto's chest gems, and the red color of Rush. The end result is Rockman-chan's bizarre version of the Zero, it seems.

Yeah; this manga is riding the crazy train, not stopping any time soon. You can check the chapter here!

SNK vs Capcom: Card Fighters' Clash Drops on Nintendo Switch

In a surprising (but welcoming) bit of news, SNK shadow dropped a port of SNK vs Capcom: Card Fighters' Clash on Nintendo Switch. It features both the SNK and Capcom versions in one! And with individual save files for the SNK and Capcom decks, you can even battle and trade between the two!

Originally released in 1999, Card Fighters' Clash pits iconic SNK and Capcom characters in heated trading card battles. If you're keen on collecting and deck building, there's a lot of fun to be had. The game has aged incredibly well too (more so than the DS outing). Hopefully SNK will follow this up with a port of the 2001 Japan-only expansion

In terms of Mega Man characters, there's Mega Man, Roll, X and Zero. The aforementioned expansion adds a few familiar faces Mega Man Legends as well. So, again, really hoping we'll see that sometime down the line. But for now... this is just awesome.

SNK vs Capcom: Card Fighters' Clash is available now for a cool $7.99.

First Look at PCS Collectibles' Official X and Zero Statues

Oh look -- a pair of renders for Premium Collectibles X and Zero statues! We haven't heard much from this front in a while, but it looks like things are cruising along just fine.

As previously reported, the statues are 1/4 scale and aim depict X and Zero's "birth". The Zero piece in particular is based on a flashback from Mega Man X4 and Mega Man X5. These renders won't necessarily reflect the final product, of course, but they're promising! 

In terms of price and availability, we don't have any further information. You can, however, sign-up to be notified when they go on sale here. We'll keep you updated as the news comes. Hang in there!

"Ryo Takamisaki Rockman Works SSR" Delayed to Mid-February

Ryo Takamisaki's latest book was originally slated for a January release in Japan. However, Fukkan recently changed the date to mid-February. Other retailers, like Amazon Japan, moved their shipping dates up to February 25.

Rockman Works SSR compiles Takamisaki's Rockman 11 and Shooting Star Rockman 3 manga, both of which were never distributed outside of their one-time CoroCoro Comics serialization. The book also includes a brand-new, 106-page manga called Forte: Time of Reunion.

Both the regular version and the limited set with five original drawings are still available to pre-order from Fukkan via proxy. If you want a more economical option, you can always pre-order via Amazon Japan.

And finally, Ryo Takamisaki himself gave us another batch of sample pages a few days ago. Hit up that link and check them out!
