Woo boy, hold onto your hats for this one. PRC reader Thomas brings word of a hefty rumor concerning the "mystery" Rockman game:
"According to a topic over at 2Channel, the mystery Rockman game teased in both Nintendo Dream and Coro Coro is a new hobby style series nicknamed “Shin Rockman” (新ロックマン). Slated to be released in late summer on the DS, the series will presumably be the successor to the Ryuusei series. The source of the rumor, a lone 2CH user, claims this new series will offer an experience that will resemble the gameplay of the .EXE series while at the same time, offer a more “action oriented” style of play that “all Rockman fans will find enjoyable.” In order to build hype for the game, Capcom will once again use Coro Coro Comics as an outlet to spread news and information, as is the case with the new boss design contest."--Thomas
Unlike the previous 2Channel rumor, I personally cannot vouche for this one's legitamacy, so take this one with a grain of salt.
