So Yeah, Mega Man is 26-Years Old Today
So here we are: day one of Mega Man's 26th anniversary. The 25th anniversary festivities are now at an end, according to Rockman Unity. The bash is going out not with a bang but a whimper, it seems. There's a small 25th ann. Rockman Xover promo event wrapping up and a new Rockman X-themed special world honoring the series' 20th anniversary (which just so happens to be tomorrow, December 18th). It's available now.
Anything else? Well there's a nice piece of Roll Caskett anniversary art from the Sound Rangers team. All PSP Rockman titles have been discounted to 800 Yen on the JPN PlayStation Network. Additionally, the Rockman X Sound Box is hours away from release. That's going to be pretty sweet, right?
Oh, there is one last thing. The very last picture in Rockman Unity's post shows Ucchy holding a piece of paper which promises something for "good children" on Christmas Day. Personally, I would not expect much. At the rate things have been going, it's most likely something Xover-related. Maybe Christmas battle memory cards (like this) or some promo event thing. I could be wrong... but honestly, I'm not feeling terribly optimistic.
Well, here's to another year. At least we can look forward to Smash Bros., among other things.
