Japanese retailers Sofmap and Messe Sanoh plan on holding a Rockman EXE Operate Shooting Star demo play event on November 3rd. Customers will be allowed to play an "over-the-counter" demo build of OSS, and receive a set Nintendo DS decals.
In related news, the new Rockman EXE manga should be surfacing any day now with the arrival of the Dec. issue of Coro Coro Special, the sister magazine of Coro Coro Comics. The issue shipped yesterday.
For the uniformed, this new manga centers around Rockman EXE and an original protagonist that isn't Netto/Lan. Not much is known about this character at the moment, but some have speculated that he might be Raito, the son of Netto and Mayl briefly mentioned at the end of Rockman EXE 6.
We'll find out soon enough...

Just like all previous EXE/SSR spin-offs, this new manga will be published in Coro Special, not Coro1. And there's a high chance it will be done by Kawano Takumi once again.ReplyDelete
Here is the cover. If you look closely, you can see Rock there.
Hmm... I'm tentatively interested in this. I don't know what to think about the new protagonist or the art style, but it could be interesting. Nothing to do but wait and see.ReplyDelete
Hmmm, seems odd to have a manga with a new protagonist and not a game with a similar storyline... Inkling of that "direction" they talked about going in with EXE? Maybe they'll see how this does and then consider making a game for it...ReplyDelete
It's gotta be Raito, Unless someone "Took over" or made a "Replica" of Rockman.EXE.ReplyDelete
But then again, We won't know for a fact who it is until the manga's out.
@Anon4: Well we don't know if it is even the same EXE universe. It could be a sub-universe with similar characters but still a different world.ReplyDelete
@Anon5: I doubt it. It might not be Raito, but a sub-universe? So a sub-universe of a sub-universe? Seems unlikely.ReplyDelete
I want those decals.ReplyDelete
And yeah...it's pretty much a given that it'll be Patch.
I hope the character is chaud and protoman. They should bring it to America along with the stream animeReplyDelete
So... It's almost been a week. :\ No manga yet?ReplyDelete
I've got nothing. Looked around for quite some time, seems nobody's got it.ReplyDelete
