announced, and the winning names for the game's two human NPCs are Deneb and Phoebe by Rockman Corner contributor Amunshen. Congratulations!
Amunshen's reward is an all access pass to Rockman Online's upcoming closed beta test. And because she's such a swell fellow, Amunshen will provide us with all sorts of inside info and reports about the beta. Hopefully, non-disclosure agreements won't be a problem, so keep those fingers crossed for some real in-depth coverage.
But I digress! So, what's in a name? Well, according to The Mega Man Network, Deneb's name hails from the character's high admiration of Reploid commander Signas. "This was derived from the fact that Signas sounds a lot like (and may be named after) Cygnus, a mythical swan that a constellation is named for, " writes TMMN's Heat Man. "Deneb is the brightest star in Cygnus, hence the name." Phoebe, meanwhile, holds no significant origin. However, the name more or less reflects the character's cute characteristics; a convergence of brightness and purity.
Again, another congratulations to Amunshen. We'll be keeping you posted with new Rockman Online beta information as it becomes available.
Holy cow. Pat yourself on the back, Amunshen.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to get my hands on this game. It is worth waiting for because they must have lots of cool FMV animations not like Rockman X5 and X6. I can't wait.ReplyDelete
Pretty amazing that the main RM Online contributors won the naming contest. Even though I honestly don't think these designs are that good, it's great that one of the names ties into an existing character's name.ReplyDelete
Hopefully this leads to alot of cool RM Online news. Congratulations to Amunshen.

Someone can tell me were i can find the full image that is on the top banner of rockman corner? the one with megaman & protoman on blue sky, thanks in advanceReplyDelete
The image was voluntarily designed by Uka, a Pixiv artist. I don't have the original layer of just Mega Man and Proto Man on me at the moment, but here is the source piece:
Thank you very much :DReplyDelete
Kudos to whoever named Deneb. That's pretty danged cleaver if you ask me.ReplyDelete
Blasphemy. Deneb will always be THE Witch to me, regardless of who tries to take her name. :3ReplyDelete
Huh. Not bad names, given the story behind them. Well, at least in Deneb's case. Phoebe is just a generic "cute" name, but it works all the same. I was really hoping for something a bit more "paired", though...ReplyDelete
Soooooo... are these humans or reploids? I'm having a hard time telling.ReplyDelete
