ShoPro Gauging Interest in Official English Subs for the Rockman EXE Anime

Every week since June, episodes from Rockman EXE's first season have been posted to AnimeLog. The YouTube channel prides itself on offering free (and legal) subtitled anime from different studios internationally. Unfortunately, some catalog titles are region-locked. Rockman EXE included.

But, my friends, that may soon change...

Represent Dr. Wily with Eighty Sixed's Newest Mega Man Shirt

Our friends at Eighty Sixed are back with another officially-licensed Mega Man t-shirt. Just look at it up there. I mean, what better way to express your admiration for the grovel master himself? You can grab this souped-up Dr. Wily logo tee here!

While you're there, have a look at Eighty Sixed's other Mega Man 11 shirts, too. Each one features unique art that you can't find anywhere else! My favorite has long been this one. It was designed by Omar Alvero. I know I wasn't the only one who mistook his work for for Yuji Isharaha. Alvero is a really talented guy!

Eighty Sixed have a few pins and a poster, too, if that's more up your alley. Check 'em out!

What's Going on with Those Weird Mega Man X DiVE Ads?

A batch Mega Man X DiVE commercials appeared on YouTube over the weekend. And, uh, they're pretty surreal. I mean, they're not only unintentionally hilarious but they misrepresent the actual game. They spoil an unannounced character, too.

From laughably poor character animation and typos to completely misleading "versus mode" gameplay, these commercials drew immediate comparisons to other, similarly deceptive mobile game ads. They're not as off-kilter as, say, Mafia City... but something isn't right here.

Check 'em out below...

"Rockman VR" Set to Return to the Aeon Mall in Hakusan City

Four months after going on hiatus, Rockman VR: Targeted Virtual World!! is coming back. The virtual reality attraction is poised to return at a new location, the Aeon Mall in Hakusen City. It will be featured at the brand-new Capcom VR-X corner alongside Biohazard: Valiant Raid and Ace Attorney VR starting July 19th.

For those not in the know, Rockman VR puts players in the Blue Bomber's shoes (literally) as they fend off a swarm of rampaging bots, Block Man and thwart Dr. Wily's plans to conquer the virtual world. You can watch nearly five minutes of gameplay here.

Interestingly enough, the game is played with a retail-based HTC Vive Pro on a regular 'ol PC and... it's partially in English! So if you happen to bear near Hakusan this summer, you might want to swing on by and play!
