Vintage Rockman DASH Promotional Video

What luck! I've been searching for this tape for quite sometime and finally, somebody graciously uploaded it to YouTube. In 1997, V Jump magazine distributed an exclusive VHS previewing seven upcoming games. Rockman DASH was one of the main featurettes, giving viewers a three minute preview of what to expect. The footage on the tape dates back to the beta build of the game, so what you see here differs superficially from the final. (get a load at the Ruins at 1:51. I don't remember that one at all)


  1. I own it. I'll give you a clearer footage and cover scans in a moment~ ^^

  2. Whoa, a VHS from a magazine? O_o That was practical.

    I'm glad they changed the model's hair style in the end.

  3. The dungeon at 1:51 and 2:35 looks like a testing area.
    They made it to test everything probably.

  4. ... forget what I said.
    It was the 1999 video tape. ;-;
    It has Rockman DASH 2 in it. >w<

  6. The finished version of the ruin at 1:51 does appear in the game. It's in the "regular" ruins scattered around the island.
