A Super Robot Wars collaboration, Mega Mission 4 and more were revealed during last night's Nico Nico Rockman 30th anniversary stream.
First up, the above art comes from a 30th anniversary calendar coming from e-Capcom. No hi-res version at the moment. I'll let you know if I find it. Moving on...
Rockman, Forte and Blues are headed to Super Robot Wars XΩ, a mobile RTS available on iOS and Android. Starting December 15th players can earn "Rockman tickets" which can be redeemed for SSR versions of Rockman units. Rockman and company will start appearing in the game on January 1st.
Rockman X Mega Mission 4 was officially announced. A follow-up to the popular 1993 Carddass series, new and old cards will be sold in a single box set later in 2018. Reservations will begin tomorrow via P-Bandai.jp. I'll keep an ear to the ground for import availability.
Sentinel will launch a 4-Inch Nel Rockman figure in 2018. No images at the moment; just this nice silhouette. It's heavily implied to be based on his Rockman 11 redesign.
To no one's surprise, a slew of misc. commemorative 30th anniversary goods were announced:

Last but not least, Capcom finally launched a wallpaper version of this RM11 promo art:
That's about it for now. 2018 really seems like the blue bomber's year! Many thanks to Reploid_21XX for the screengrabs!December 13, 2017
My Wet Dream Come True!!!!! Mega Man, Mazinger Z, Gundam in a official crossover game. THIS IS THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY GAMER LIFE!!!!ReplyDelete
Maybe, I'll try to get my hand on the Mega-Mission set in a way. and i'll get that new sentinel 4-inch. for the price, the quality is quite good.ReplyDelete
Aside from that, do we know who is the artist behind the 30th anniversary pic? (this one https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-EKmH-eTTjOk/WjEvFBb1MiI/AAAAAAAAcks/58klkIFEX2QFII5O_pZCMEGtwQ0LW48QwCLcBGAs/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2017-12-13%2Bat%2B7.45.29%2BAM.png )
So Over-1 now officially a main protagonist of the Mega man franchise?ReplyDelete
I'm pretty sure the hate for it was nowhere as giant as it was in the west, the Japanese fanbase seemed to be more chill about the game being a thing, and that image was made for the Japanese fandom.Delete
I mean the history of Mega Man video that preceded the Mega Man 11 reveal also put Over-1 alongside the other protagonists.Delete
"Mega Missions 4"ReplyDelete
*quiet squeal of delight~*
At this rate of love for Mega Man, I can't help but wonder if Capcom will be taking notice and push more Mega Man in the future. I haven't seen this much excitement for a game since Sony introduced it's new Norse God of War game. Mega Man 11 is getting a lot of attention. This gives me hope that we'll eventually see a Mega Man X9, Legends 3, and maybe Mega Man 12 if it all goes well.ReplyDelete
A MM11 Nel figure would be pretty cool to have. I wish the line would pick back up again, I'd love to have a Nel Protoman and Bass.ReplyDelete
Me too!, lets support this awesome line! Cut Man is really good. Am definitely going to get this new Sentinel figure, quality is greatDelete
2 things. One- Bandai had Better release Mega Mission internationally. And Two - I refuse to recognize Over-1 as an official or true Mega Man,despite what Crapcom says. Same goes for Fat-Ass Box Art Megaman from Street Fighter x Tekken.ReplyDelete
