Rockman x Castle & Dragon Collaboration Announced
With Rockman's 30th anniversary in full swing, it should come as no surprise more collaborations with other IPs are popping up. It helps spread brand awareness, you see. Today, it's a crossover with the Japanese-exclusive strategy game Castle & Dragon.
Starting February 16th, Rockman character-themed armor and parts tickets will be available to purchase (via gacha) from the in-game 'EGG' store. You can equip your units with armors based on Rockman, Blues, Forte, Metal Man, Air Man, Bubble Man, Quick Man, Crash Man, Heat Man and Wood Man. Rare drops include helmet-less Rockman and 8-bit Rockman. Each armor comes with their own unique attacks and stats.
Additionally, an optional event to square off against Dr. Wily will run from now until March 2nd. You can check out some gameplay of that here – it's pretty chaotic. It's worth a watch if you want to see Rock and co. fighting chimeras, snowmen and robot owls.
