The following tidbit comes from Inside Game's Operate Shooting Star special stage report where OSS producer, Takeshi Horinouchi, expressed an interest in continuing the EXE series:
“Rockman EXE Operate Shooting Star will go on sale November 12th. Though the series wrapped up three years ago, thanks to the players Rockman EXE is able to sell once again. Furthermore, as we approach Rockman’s 25th anniversary, I’m thinking of what I want to do with Rockman EXE.”
I wonder what he has in mind...more ports/remakes? Maybe even a full blown sequel?

I hope to god we're not going to see BN remakes year after year. That would get redundant.ReplyDelete
Why Not? We were supposed to be seeing Classic & X series remakes if the PSP titles did well, but since they didn't, we miss out.ReplyDelete
I hope we see A true successor to MMBN! (hint: Patch Hikari)ReplyDelete
It'd depend on the quality of the games, be they remakes, spinoffs, or new sequels (Despite the grand "THE END" and happily ever after we saw after 6's credits.)ReplyDelete
If they added a new approach to the games, or updated to the recent MMSF style battles, that might attract positive views (lord knows how many fans would squeal at the aspect of Bass in 3-D).
Still, I cannot imagine anything that would add to the story; it would just add on or create repetition (or just be plain unnecessary. We already know everybody lives happily in the end, there is no plot surprises we could have trick us, provided alternate timelines aren't abused as an excuse *cough*Timetravel*cough*).
I can only hope whatever the future holds for Megaman isn't something to fear.
Very cool, now we want Exe7...or 6,5?XDReplyDelete
the dream can be true!
I'll tell you right quick what he should think about doing. MegaMan X9 or Legends 3. Plain and simple. Don't continue BN, its done. Nor Star Force. They should focus on completing their open stories.ReplyDelete
Stupid decision but go ahead. They are going to lose more money.. Ridiculous!ReplyDelete
Oh yay, this made my day. I'd like to see a FULL EXE sequel and Legends 3, please. I don't care for X anymore, even though I used to love the series and play it all the time. Also would like to see a 2.5D Classic. :DReplyDelete
I wish they would have skipped this game and gone on to good sequels. Because I'd like maybe one or two more good games, but having this one in between kind of waters the series down. I suppose it's better than nothing, but I'd hate for the series to be tarnished by money-making rehashes. And for the record, I do not count 2-6 as rehashes. Yes, the gameplay was the same. Same as every single other megaman series, same as tons of other series. :PReplyDelete
Finally! More EXE games :DReplyDelete
Protodude, I heard that a anon commented on your blog, "EXE OSS Special Stage Report". I guess he was right about these "rumors" on more remakes of EXE. BN6 on DS = Win!!!!!!!! Of course I dought that they would remake BN5 considering it is already remade.ReplyDelete
MegaMac, I agree, there's just as many fans (stat not verified) waiting on sequels to bridge X & classic as well as a Legends 3 game.ReplyDelete
But from a development standpoint, it's nothing to make another EXE game. The interface is already there, just add some elements, some new music, write the story and bam, your done. Unless of course they decide to do one from the ground up for the DS that isn't OSS.
maybe a remake of all bn but oss styleReplyDelete
*slaps everyone who thinks that this is a confirmation of them remaking the entire series*ReplyDelete
Nowhere in there does it say 'remake'.
I still call the remake rumor to be total BS (I'm still convinced that the other guy(s) in the other article was making it up seeing as he never provided the links at the very beginning), as everyone knows it's far too early to remake the entire series.
At least wait until the next gen handhelds come out.
Hypercoyote: Kind of like every other Megaman game out there? You have the sprites, platforming mechanics with slight tweaks, weapons gained from bosses, etc.
The only series that does not fall into that kind of logic thus far is Legends, and I can see why Capcom does not exactly want to develop a third one yet. The development costs for Legends must be ridiculously high compared to all the other Rockman games.
Man, when will Capcom ever make a darn full-fletched retail Mega Man console games for Wii, 360, and PS3. For some reason, Mega Man retail games been only in 7th generation portable system like DS, and PSP, but Mega Man 9 did release on Wii as WiiWare game, on PS3 as PSN, and on 360 as Live Arcade. Man, what is with that nowadays, if they ever make and release a full-fletched retail Mega Man games on those three systems, do you think Capcom would still lose their money also. I think the mainstream society are just ASSHOLE these days, that's why mainstream are overrated as heck.ReplyDelete
The roller coaster ride of comments from people who love EXE and look forward to the remake, those who love EXE and hate the remake, and those who hate everything that is EXE has been one heckuva read. Doesn't it get old arguing with each other over it?ReplyDelete
@Anybody who wants legends 3 to happen.ReplyDelete
It's not going to happen. Time and time again,people at capcom have said "If Inafune wants it,it's probaly gonna happen."
And time and time again Inafune has said " I want to make a legends 3."
now if both of these things is true,then we would have legends 3 by now. We don't.Somebody is LYING.
Either Inafune doesn't have as much say at Capcom as people say,or He doesn't want to make legends 3. I'm betting he doesn't want to make it. Get over it. The rpg games are probaly the future of the series.
Oh god no! Now, I'm not hating EXE, BUT Capcom said that EXE6 was "THE END." It finished with a closure, don't milk it to death. *looks at Kamen Rider Den-O*ReplyDelete
I know that this is unrelated and all, but, do you know anything about Hub Protodude and anyone else out there who is kind enough to answer this question. Plus won't it be cool if they made a show on EXE talking about himself before he turned into a net navi. Like a prequel to the first episode of EXE or NT Warrior. How many of you think that it is a good idea?ReplyDelete
I've always thought the Saito/Hub storyline would have been a nice part to have in the anime, since it's my favorite part of the games, but whether any sort of revival of the anime is a good idea is up for debate. :\ReplyDelete
LET THE FRICKIN' SERIES DIE! It's great and all, but they've got to know when to stop rather than to churn out the exact same thing year after year! It ended on a high note in BN6, so it really should be done. Thank God it was Inti Creates and not Capcom in charge of the Zero series, or they'd want to continue that as well!
This new game is a fitting end. Even they must realize that taking this route is not the right decision.ReplyDelete
@Michael: Same for all the other series minus legends too then, eh? Why don't people understand that all megaman games and most sequels in other series are the same thing tweaked with new stories? :PReplyDelete
@Megamac: The X series is done. All of its plot was wrapped up in x5 (x6 was made without inafune's wishes and the games after that were quite unlike the games previously in the x series.) Dash 3 I whole heartidly agree on though. BN is done, Shooting Star could still have one game left in it due to plot elements that are still not wrapped up. ZX could still have another game aswell. Or they could wow us all and make a totally new series (or wow us all and make DASH 3)ReplyDelete
