Rockman Poker Released in Japan


A new bite-sized Rockman game hit the mobile market in Japan this morning: Rockman Poker. The name of the game says it all, really. It's poker with Rockman characters. No gameplay gimmicks, snazzy music or sound. Bare bones in every sense of the word. At least the sprites are nice (they're animated, too!)  UPDATE: Additional screenshots available at Gamer, for those interested. It appears Bass is a challenger, too.
 
Subscribers to Capcom's Capcom Party mobile service can snag Poker for free, so it's at least worth a shot. Could be fun, I suppose. The again, I think we'd all much rather pay good money for a quality game that took some effort to develop. Not knocking anybody who worked on Poker, but... c'mon, guys. We're long overdue for some real blue bomber gaming.

  1. Blues has a "Flash"? Good to see that Engrish is alive and well in this game.

  2. I hope this isn't the stuff CAPCOM meant when they said MegaMan isn't dead.

  3. I must be the first to be offended by the apparent omission of Spider in this most poker themed of Mega Man titles.

    Yes, why wouldn't Spider be in this game? Fail, Capcom! :P

  6. Megaman in name only...

    Hey, remember back in the day, when we had real megaman games being made? I mean, sure, they were rushed to hell and the quality left a lot to be wanting, but still... it could still be called Megaman, and actually had a chance to be localized...

    Now it's just like... cheap cash-ins and cameos... We went from quality, to quantity, to "just stick the name on it"... *sigh*

  13. Well, at least this seems to have had a bit more effort put into it than MM Solitaire.

  14. Well, 1) I'm a sucker for animated sprites and official art, and 2) I have ZERO expectations of an actual Rockman game this year at all. So.. this poker game is cool to me : )

    From the screenshots it's not clear if you can use characters other than MegaMan (is it even multiplayer?), but oh well. The sprites looks nice. I hope someone rips them. Also Protoman totally has the upper hand thanks to the shades.

  15. Stop, Capcom. Stop.

    I used to not care about little worthless tie-ins.

    But this is insulting. Stop.

  16. And who is going to be the last boss? Magic Man? Dr. Wily dressed as Dr. No?

  17. I'd pretty much expect the colors (they do that with fast food chains as well), but I didn't expect the shapes to be a factor in making a non-player want to learn to play poker. click here now
