Mega Man X DiVE Global Version Team in Talks with Capcom to Keep the Game Online

Although the original version of Mega Man X DiVE is no longer playable online, the officially-licensed Global Version by NebulaJoy is still going strong... and they hope to keep it that way.

In a recent livestream, Zero-X, a representative from NebulaJoy, shared insights on the game's future. Zero-X stated, "We are in talks right now with Capcom to extend the online version. I'm 99% sure they are going to say yes." Emphasizing the mutual interest in success, Zero-X added, "They're not going to let us fail because it makes no sense. If this game ever gets shut down they do not benefit at all. If it keeps running, they benefit. Everybody benefits."

While Zero-X refrained from specifying how long service would last in the event of Capcom choosing not to renew the partnership, his confidence should be reassuring for longtime players. We'll keep an ear to the ground if anything changes.

Unreleased and Prototype Jazwares Mega Man Figures Up for Grabs

A handful of  unreleased figures from Jazewares' Mega Man line have surfaced on eBay. Among them is a particularly intriguing treasure—a never-before-seen "battle damaged" Zero. It appears to be a redeco of the 6-inch figure from 2004, which was already a significant improvement over its less appealing wave 1 counterpart

We also have an array of test-shot prototypes of classic series Mega Man... with X's body. This fella comes in various colors, including blue, green, red and brown. It's worth noting that similar prototypes were last showcased at Toy Fair 2005 but unfortunately never made it to retail.

According to the seller, these figures were obtained from an industry veteran's estate. Now, for a very pretty penny, they could be yours. If nothing else, these new images serve as valuable additions to the pantheon of cancelled and unreleased Jazwares goodies. You can check 'em out after break!
