"OVER-B" Coming Soon to Rockman Xover
Every so often Rockman Xover's servers spring a leak and clue us in on future updates. Tonight is no different: here we have a sneak peek of the upcoming "OVER-B" form. If it wasn't clear enough, this one is based on Blues' Rockman EXE incarnation, complete with (what looks to be) an arm-mounted beam saber.
Other Xover leaks seem to suggest a Star Force 3-themed world (which would accompany OVER-B), a new collaboration with Eagle Talon, and a "special" Roll Caskett swimsuit card. I've included that one after the break. It's not particularly work appropriate.
Thanks for the updates, Django!
No joke; these swimsuit cards can run for $100+ in real cash. There's the slim chance you can win one for free from a Gacha Ticket or boss drops, however. But even then... man, they aren't all too great. Just look at this pair. Terrible, terrible trace jobs.
For what it's worth, Roll and Kalinka are new pieces of art.

That's some snazzy new armour Luka got (still not calling him OVER-1). :)ReplyDelete
And while I'm glad that Roll Caskett got a(nother?) card (albeit I'm not too big on the whole swimsuit thing)...those last two were partially-traced? And you may have to shell out up to $100 for 'em? Gyeesh.
(also, is it just me, or is one of Caskett's arms kinda wonky?)
RADIX, stop trying to make "Luka" happen. It's not going to happen.Delete
I don't think I'm really trying to "make it happen". I just really, really don't like the canon name they slapped the poor guy with; it just makes it all the more obvious that this "Reploid" has all the functionality (and personality) of a freaking Mechaniloid. Let me have my fun, man. :/Delete
I think that's a quote from Mean Girls. You got trolled, bro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pubd-spHN-0Delete
To be fair, the OVER series is a mass-produced robot. They're not supposed to have personality -- at the very least, not initially. Your "Luka" is bound to be vastly different from other peoples' OVER-1.Delete
It's kind of like the Chrono Trigger song goes: "R-66Y. That is my name, but you can call me anything." So you can name yours whatever you want, but that's not going to change the fact that the unit is still called OVER-1.
@Anon 2: ...I never watched Mean Girls. ._.Delete
@ Jospeh: Eh, good point.
*facepalm* When are they going to stop doing that to Rockman Xover. Its terrible game. They need to make a new Rockman games!! JEEZ!ReplyDelete
'No joke; these swimsuit cards can run for $100+ in real cash. ' There's the reason why anon. They're getting easy effortless money.Delete
OVER-B has a nice design, shame the game he's in sucks. I can't say much about the possible SF3-themed world because I honestly don't care about Xover.ReplyDelete
Laughing at the swimsuit card images, it looks like Capcom just hired a random artist from DeviantArt to draw them.
Yeah, it's kinda insulting, actually. If I wanted to see Legends bikini fanart, why should I pay $100 for one card when I can go to DeviantArt and look and hundreds of those, many with superior quality, for free?Delete
The feather boa ruins it, as it always will.ReplyDelete
What a joke!
These two characters come together for a cooler design than either of them on their own. That said, that stupid horn on his head looks as pants-on-head retarded as it always has.ReplyDelete
I rather like the new armor, but then again I've always been partial to EXE's world and characters. And SF3 was (what many would argue) one of the better SF/RnR games so that's pretty cool as well. I wonder what this makes us up to now, we're edging closer to 10 different 'Level/Worlds' and this'll be the 2nd armor based on a past canon character, correct?ReplyDelete
OVER-B? Seriously? Not to rain on parades here, but we chose a secondary character over all the megaman iterations as well as the original Protoman? And to top it off, one we've already seen fused with another iteration? And to top it off, shameless fanservice that the Megaman series rarely, if ever, uses?ReplyDelete
Geezuz at least try for Xover...
Well, at least the Kalinka art looks nice.ReplyDelete
Missed opportunity for an Eddie/Beat-themed beverage cooler though.
There still isn't a Legends or ZX world. Just thought I'd point that out.ReplyDelete
official roll casket hentai. megaman is ruined,ReplyDelete
I guarantee you... this is not hentai.Delete
Oh god, Roll's arm & shoulder are so awful. It's practically Andrew Dobson-level bad.ReplyDelete
Those swimsuit cards are really cute! Despite the fact Roll's arm is wonky, I mean. That armor is pretty cool, too. But you know what would be even cooler?ReplyDelete
Female OVER models.
Seriously, why not? Girls play the game, too, right? Plus, Roll and the Mega Man X8 the navigators have all been playable at one point. So why not a female OVER model?
Because Capcom likely wouldn't care enough about their lady audience to give them something as awesome as a female OVER model (trust me, I'd LOVE to see one that wasn't needlessly sexualized).Delete
Though now that you bring that up, I'll have to try drawing one myself.
It's a bit much, isn't it? There are elements of the design I like, but it's going a bit overboard with detail and navi emblems.ReplyDelete
This feels like the most amateur Rockman game ever.
OVER-B would look somewhat decent if he didnt' have that stupid furry boa.ReplyDelete
The heck is wrong with Roll's shoulder? Well, at least it's better than the Tron one, so whoever did those is improving, even if only 1%.ReplyDelete
OVER-B is kinda cool, but that's Blues for ya. Even Xover is unable to make him look uncool! :P
The fanservice in these female cards is stifling. $100?! Not only are they resorting to cheap fanservice tactics but they are being disgustingly shameless about it. I don't remember Capcom acting this desperate before. The artwork doesn't even look all that good (holy mother of God, those arms!), but it seems to me they'll do anything to milk as much money from this POS game for what little its worth, huh? Oh, well. People who decide to blow their money on this stupid crap deserve to get ripped off. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I sincerely wish Capcom would go bankrupt and die already. Infinitely more worthy developers can take over their once beloved franchises. Bunch of shameless half-assing money hungry whore mongering sleaze bag Mega Man rapists.ReplyDelete
