Rockman X DiVE Introduces Three Mysterious Characters, "DNA Code" System

There's a lot happening in the world of Rockman X DiVE this week. If the prospects of a Switch version weren't enough, there's a bunch of in-game content and features dropping, too.

Rockman-san Chapter 11 Introduces the "Robot Resort" + CH 2&3 English Translations

In Rockman-san's previous chapter, we saw the arrival of Star Man. The Rockman 5 Robot Master spent the last two years in space, working on the expansion of an orbital station.

While having a drink with Rock at "Robot Bar 8-Bit", we learn how Star Man's head movement is hampered by the pointy parts of his armor. He has to contend with unintentionally damaging himself if he moves his head to the left or right. But there's nothing Dr. Light can't fix! He made Star Man's armor parts flexible. Star Man returned to space with a happy smile.

In this week's chapter, Rock and Roll go to a resort for a well deserved rest. They happen to run across Bubble Man, Charge Man, Gemini Man and other special guests too!

What's more, our friend Midori translated chapters 2 and 3 in English! Our buddy Aldo continues to translate "san and chan" in Spanish every week too. Check 'em out from the links above!

Rockman EXE Manga Now Available on Amazon Kindle

On Twitter, Ryo Takamisaki announced that his much-adored Rockman EXE manga has made the jump to Amazon Kindle. All eight volumes of the Japanese "New Edition" reprints are now available to download for 1,650 yen a piece (roughly $14.57 US). 

Unfortunately, there's no sign that Viz Media will follow suit with digital versions of the English-localized Mega Man NT Warrior. The good news is that Kindle e-books are not region locked. They'll work anywhere in the world. So if you're a fan of the manga or just want to support Takamisaki's work, give 'em a download! An Amazon Japan account is required, mind you.

Rockman-chan Chapter 12 Now Available

After Ketchup's failed attempt to use pedestrians to stop Rockman from attacking Otachidai Man, this week's Rockman-chan chapter introduces another member of the Men's 6: Gekiga.

There's not much excitement in this chapter, honestly. It's light on shenanigans, more on story. Nevertheless, the next crazy chapter is around the corner! You can read chapter 12 here.
