Rockman EXE 20th Anniversary: Special Interview with Ryo Takamisaki

We're six months into Rockman EXE's 20th anniversary. Although we continue to wait for additional, special announcements, the past half year hasn't gone entirely eventless.

From the release of the Rockman EXE 20th Anniversary "Treasure Box", the collaboration with Medarot S and new goods already on sale, there's been plenty of smaller things to look forward to.

But now, instead of looking to the future we're taking a look into the series' past. For your consideration, we're pleased to bring you an freshly-translated interview between Coro Coro Online and Ryo Takamisaki from March 2021. Takamisaki needs no introduction... but for those not in-the-know, he's the mangaka behaind the Rockman EXE manga and the Rockman 11 One-Shot.

You can read the interview translated by our friend Sidier after the break!

We Have Secured "Rockman DASH: Great Adventure on 5 Islands!"

Earlier this year, our preservation team secured Rockman EXE Phantom of Network and Rockman EXE Legend of Network. Those games were exclusively released in Japan on feature phones (otherwise known as “dumb phones") in 2004 and 2006, respectively. 

Although that project remains ongoing, we're excited to announce that we've acquired another highly-sought after feature phone game. The little Mega Man Legends spin-off itself, Rockman DASH: Great Adventure on 5 Islands! 

The following guest post by team leader RockmanCosmo will tell you everything you need to know about the"adventure" ahead.

"ROCKMAN ZERO COLLECTION SOUNDTRACK -résonnante vie-" Booklet Translation

Released back in 2011 alongside the "NEW Best Price! 2000" edition of the Rockman Zero Collection, résonnant vie is packed with a selection of 13 acoustic arrangements  from the Zero series. What's more, it was the final Rockman CD distributed by Inti Creates.

This album is a "sound remake" of Rockman Zero's setting. It's based on the paradoxical concept of arranging songs from the mechanical world of Rockman Zero using mainly non-powered live instruments. It re-expresses the strength and mystique of life, such as the concept of a "soul" and the core as a "life-form" that Reploids have acquired despite being mere "machines".

Thanks to our friend Windii Gitlord, you can read the soundtrack's booklet in English after the break!

"Sacred God Wood Man" Stars in Rockman-san Chapter 9

In the previous Rockman-san chapter, we witnessed the arrival of Enker -- the only robot to oppose robot disarmament. In a world of peace, Enker simply couldn't move on with his life. Born as a "Rockman Killer", he continues to seek out and fight Rockman because that's his only reason to live.

Eventually, Rockman and Roll offered to help Enker find a new purpose. But after three hours of brainstorming, they couldn't come up with anything worthwhile. Enker decides to resume his fight with Rockman... that's where that story arc ended. For now, maybe. 

The latest Rockman-san chapter focuses entirely on Wood Man. In the years following Dr. Wily's retirement, Wood Man became a replacement for a temple's sacred tree. However, he's worried about how to properly fulfill the duties of a god without the omniscience of an actual god.
