Yusuke Murata Has Mega Man On the Mind

Before hitting it big with Eyesheild 21 and One-Punch Man, manga artist Yusuke Murata was but a child when he won the Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5 boss design contests. His winning sketches became Dust Man and Crystal Man, respectively. He was 12-years-old at the time.

Years later, Murata has found international acclaim. And yet he will be a fan of Mega Man no matter where his career takes him.

One Fan Is Re-Translating Mega Man X6

Whether you love or hate Mega Man X6, I think the majority will agree its English localization was a hot mess (except this. That was pure gold.) It's truly unfortunate because there's actually a good story underneath all that hogwash. That's why a one DuoDynamo has set out to re-translate the game from the ground up.

Bandai Gauging Interest for Rockman Shodo Figures

Bandai have been pumping out a ton of Rockman figures lately, and it seems that trend may continue. Right now, Bandai are asking fans about which video game, manga or anime series they would like to see a Shodo figure of. The Rockman series is among the twenty available choices.

From what I've been able to gather, access to the poll is currently customers who purchased any of the latest Dragon Ball Z Shodo figures. The figures come with a QR code that, when scanned, take you to the online poll. So unless you own one of these figures, you can't participate (for now). We'll keep you posted if anything changes on that front.

Mega Man DLC Hits Monster Hunter Generations

Just in time for the Halloween season, Capcom have rolled out a batch of free Monster Hunter Generations costume DLC for October. The Mega Man Felyne gear is included, allowing you to dress your Palico in classic Blue Bomber duds. As a nice touch, the Mega Man gear changes colors at the end of each combo. It includes familiar sound effects, too, like a charging Mega Buster, Metal Blade, and life recharge (complete with an E-tank to drink).

Contest: Win a Mega Man.EXE and Lan 4Inch-Nel Set!

With Mega Man Battle Network's 15th anniversary drawing to a close by year's end, I thought a little contest might be a nice way to cap things off. Starting today until January 1st, 2017, you'll have the chance to win both a 4Inch-Nel Mega Man.EXE figure and a 4Inch-Nel Lite Lan set. Both figures! Best of all? I will ship this sweet package anywhere in the world.

To enter, simply shoot an email to RockmanCornerContests AT with the subject "4Inch Nels". No message body necessary; one submission per person, please.

Now, because we don't know the specific release date for Lan, I can't give you a definitive answer when you're winning package will ship. Regardless, I will close submissions on January 1st (12AM est) and choose a random winner.

With that out of the way, have at it! Feel free to use the comments section for any questions. Good luck!
