Rockman Recreated In 'Picture Lives!'

A quirky little game by the name of Pictures Lives! recently hit the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan. The D.I.Y platformer allows players to build their very own character and worlds with a number of wacky tools at their disposal. Naturally, it was only a matter of time before someone would set out to create a Rockman-themed adventure. And sure enough, Rockman Corner reader Niroth has discovered just such a creation.

Needless to say, a lot of neat Rockman/Mega Man stuff  could come about with this. Picture Lives! is earning all sorts of praise for its unique and easy to use tools. In no time at all, you'll design, voice and animate a character, who will then explore a 2D world. It's no Mega Man Universe, but it's something.

No word when the game will launch outside of Japan, but it's on the burner. In the meantime, you can amuse yourself with some splendid gameplay footage via YouTube.


  1. That's just freakin' adorable. XD I want it~. X3

  2. Wow what a weird game. My sister linked me to some other footage of various characters.

    And also, Niroth is my bro. That is all lol.

  3. So Mega Man has stretchy legs, can talk with cars, and makes eggs like Yoshi... How very surreal.

  4. waw... walked like a crab ahaha thats cute :D

  5. That is so freakin' cool. God how I wish I had a 3DS.

    And stretchy legs equals weirdly cool. :D

  6. I think this is one of those games that are uh...Japanese exclusive. XD

    Looks like that car is a Delorean. Mega Man talking to it? Or to the person inside it? Hopefully he doesn't mistake Doc Brown for Wily.

  7. This is so cool...but creepy.
