It's every fanboy's (and fangirl's) dream to have a classic and X series crossover. Two Mega Men, from two different eras, coming together to vanquish evil. Aside from a short-lived comic series from Dreamwave and an episode of the Ruby-Spears cartoon, classic Mega and X have never crossed paths in a game... or have they?
Enter Rockman Tennis; the 2007 Japanese exclusive mobile phone game where Rockman company compete in, simply put, a tennis tournament. While neat in its own right, the title holds something very significant that would have gone unnoticed to most if not for YouTuber Megacocorock. Turns out, Rockman X is an unlockable playable character, purchasable in the in-game shop -- thus marking the first time, in an official Capcom game, the two creations of Dr. Light come face to face:
Okay, so a tennis match isn't the neatest venue for the two to meet, but pretty cool we got to see something like this happen, even if it was through a series of still images (the video itself, according to the author, wasn't intended to show off X in play, but his theme music -- hence the lack of actual gameplay. Still, you get the idea).
One has to wonder if this will be the last time Mega Man and X will meet. If not, maybe the next opportunity will be a little more action oriented and not a competition in athletic ability.
...yeah, that's.. all I got.
We need a REAL classic/X crossover one of these days. Like a co-op 2D thing.ReplyDelete
I love those sprites! Do want!ReplyDelete
You forgot the Crossover episode of the Ruby Spears Cartoon!ReplyDelete
The Mega X!
Wasn't this covered already?ReplyDelete
I coulda sworn you did a post about this already before.
Saito: I covered Rockman Tennis before as a game, yes, but back then I had no idea X was unlockable.ReplyDelete
How could I have missed that? That's one of my favorite episodes! Thanks for the heads up!
Not sure... for some reason I think it is a fake.ReplyDelete
It is no fake. You purchase Megaman X in the shop.ReplyDelete
It still pisses me off that they canceled the Mega Man comic series. I was so psyched and ready to take the monthly trip to the comic book store to get my monthly Mega Man fix.ReplyDelete
Maybe they'll meet in Megaman Universe.....ReplyDelete
...Yeah, I think 'lolwut?' describes this quite nicely.ReplyDelete
Nah, my dream is for a Classic/EXE crossover. Not just the Rockmen, it's everyone meeting each other!
A met as the referee? Isn't that thing against X AND Mega? @_@;ReplyDelete
