There's a New Rockman Xover Boss Contest

No less than a few months after the previous boss contest, Capcom is kicking off one more for everyone's favorite iOS/Android app Rockman Xover. This time there's a theme: they're looking for entries that represent each of the 47 prefectures of Japan.

Indeed, this one is going to be difficult to enter if you don't live in Japan. But you can look forward to the contest's byproducts: a batch of new Battle Memory cards. According to Famitsu's report, 11 grand prize winners will have their characters made into Battle Memory cards (as opposed to being made into an actual boss) . They will also receive a special Battle Memory available only to contest winners, and an E Tank water bottle.

Nico Nico Seiga is handling the submissions once again. The dealine is September 2nd, and we should start seeing the winning Battle Memories in early October.

  1. "represent each of the 47 prefectures of Japan"
    "11 grand prize winners (...) into Battle memory cards"
    "(as opposed to being made into an actual boss)"

    So only 11/47 of Japan's prefectures will be represented at most, then?
    And despite it being called a "Boss Character Contest", none will be fought in-game, ever?

    ......well, OK then.

  2. Wait... they ask people to make a boss chara for this --- uhhh --- game and 11 of them won't be a boss in this game at all?
    Eh... did I missed something or is this illogical?

  3. The sheer stupidity and lack of quality involved in this contest seems about par the course for the quality of Xover.

    Who knows, though. Maybe someday these entries will go the way of Blademan and be re-incorporated into an actual game.

  4. Other Xover contest? At this point, I'd rather see a Mega Man fan game contest, the winner being released of Virtual Console...

  5. You know what I think I might enter this contest for shoots and giggles.

  6. Representing the Shiga Prefecture, I give you Tanuki Man. His attack is hitting the players with his oversized ball sack.

  7. Wait there's an Android version!?

    1. Yes.
