Best Promotional Item Ever: Capcom to Release E-Tank Beverage
This is just beyond awesome. This is like uber awesome.
Starting this month, Capcom of Japan will be selling "Rockman E-Tank Sport Drinks" for the low price of 137 yen ($1.25 USD). The best part is the can looks like an E-Tank, so it can double as a collectors item and a beverage! That is just so cool. Seriously Capcom, you guys are really impressing me with all this RM9 love.
Promoting a video game through soft drinks is nothing new, previously Square Enix promoted "Final Fantasy XII" with a series of "potions", though I've been told they taste awful.
One has to wonder, will US Rockman fans get a taste of this lovely promotional item? Only time will tell.

That is too cool! Capcom should definitely make more merchandise like this. Oh, I want one so badly!ReplyDelete
I want one too! NAO!ReplyDelete
You missed the Ryusei drink containers here http://www.capcom.co.jp/game/event/rockman_summer_festival/ReplyDelete
They look awesome too. One of those and an E-tank would work great together :)
Come on, Capcom. Please cater us in the US with these Rockman merchandise too!ReplyDelete
Even if they don't bring it, we have ways of finding Japanese stuff. I'd love to run around with an E-Tank though. It'd be like a fan-magnet, if you were to carry it at school or in public. Any original Megaman fan knows what an E-Tank is, so perhaps it'd even be able to help you find friends, in a way. XDReplyDelete
I wonder if this would turn up on eBay...ReplyDelete
