The Ladies of Battle Network/Star Force Joining 'Sound Rangers'
Starting February 21st, Sound Rangers players can log in for the chance to win a handful of new playable Capcom characters. Among familiar faces, Mega Man Battle Network's Roll.EXE and Mega Man Star Force's Sonia Strumm and Luna Platz have been confirmed to appear. These three characters can only be obtained via "gacha", a feature that allows you to trade your in-game currency for random characters.
Additionally, everyone who logs in to the game between the 21st and the 24th gets a "type B" Servbot. No currency needed; this one's on the house or so they say.

Is there a reason mostly female characters are being used over the male characters? It just seems like fan service to me as Mega Man was never really about the "girls" (and I don't mean that in a misogynistic way). Come to think of it, they're using mainly females from other Capcom games too.ReplyDelete
That's a rather obvious reason after Capcom's other mobile games. As to "why now?" seeing that the game's update this month are almost exclusively girls? I'd say Valentine's Day was probably a catalyst.Delete
Even back then it was Aero, Roll Caskett, and Tron (no Volnutt or Barett?). There seems to a greater emphasis on female reps rather than male ones.Delete
Same reason Xover has the female characters in swimsuits as powerful/rare cards.Delete
The dots connect themselves.
A sex symbol toward to the women more than a male characters, perhaps. I agreed with you. Sighing.ReplyDelete
Oh my god, EXE and Starforce characters included in this? Surely that means an EXE and Starforce revival is in the works!!!ReplyDelete
... Yeah, see? If you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm. It's like how people were getting excited when they saw Aero and Roll Caskett included. It doesn't mean there is a revive in the works.
Got news for you: Aero still hasn't been released for the game. She is still being teased. None of the ladies above were teased.Delete
Even still. It doesn't mean there is a revival in the works.Delete
One should also notice that Hsien-Ko is in that image too. And her series is deader than dead. In every meaning of that phrase.Delete
and capcom love to remind me that megaman won't have a game featuring all those characters i love and relegate them to be just a cameo to some crappy iphone game. is it hard to ask for a new mega man game to play? i virtually played them all and beat them more than 20 times since all the cancellation in 2011.ReplyDelete
I'm afraid that at this point you either make the game yourself or rely on the collective fanbase. There are some really good ones, like Day in the Limelight series, plus Megaman X Corrupted & Chrono X look very promising 'n professional.Delete
Eww... Never seen Chrono X but it just sounds bad, just by the title. It just oozes fan-fic/game. I'll give it its fair chance but man that sounds lame to me.Delete
MMX Corrupted on the other hand is one of the best things I've ever heard and seen come from fans. It should have got help and licensed by Capcom instead of that garbage SFxMM.
true, i can go to fan games to play them but they all do the 8 bit classic series and i have been sick of them because they basically the call of duty of the sidescrollers. i want something fresh and new and it have the look of a next gen title. if i want another retro game to play, i go to play my retro consoles.Delete
i'm not dissing the fans efforts because there are some games that tries to be new like MMX corrupt and MM Ceil. but i don't want 8 bit mega man game that looks like all the other fan games came before it.
Sckarton... Corrupted and Chrono X aren't 8bit, and Chrono X ain't a sidescroller >_> And the only way you're getting 'next-gen' is from Capcom itself...Delete
between every corrupted and chrono X, there's tons of 8 bit classic mega man in between.Delete
We give Sonia and Luna their Wizards(or for Luna, her possessor), but Mayl doesn't get to appear beside Roll? What the heck man :/ReplyDelete
All things aside, that Roll.EXE looks so adorable : )ReplyDelete
What? No Ring.EXE? Or Iris.EXE? For shame, Capcom.ReplyDelete
Man who cares?. If people have to have these side girls that are for show, at least have the useful ones like Meddy.EXE or Tamako with MetalMan.EXE. Meddy cause playable+chips+fusions Tamako cause she's a woman and her Navi is useful and appeared in more than one game.Delete
Ring.EXE literally only appeared/and was playable in the worst game ever created(this is fact no arguments). And Iris.EXE is just a lame plot device just like regular Iris.
Ouch! Harsh words!Delete
I mostly suggested Ring.EXE and Iris.EXE because they're both she is super-adorable, which is what I figure is the purpose of adding these other characters in.
Sorry... I my have got carried away.Delete
