An unexpected new Mega Man was announced today, April 1st, 2018...
Introducing Mega Man: Date My Robot Master. It's a breathtaking, romantic new take on the classic series that's long overdue. Here's the lowdown from Capcom US's Kellen:
"It is the year 20XX. The world breathes a collective sigh of relief now that Mega Man has once again put an end to Dr. Wily’s plans for world domination. But then... a mysterious new transfer robot joins the ranks of Robot University!
Learn to navigate robot society and get to know eight different Robot Masters from classic Mega Man adventures in this unique visual novel set in the Mega Man universe! Placed in the metal shoes of a new student assembled by Dr. Light himself, it’s up to you to learn about the secrets of the university, and maybe, if you’re lucky, find love along the way."
Date My Robot Master is headed to all major consoles on April 1st, 20XX. Head to Capcom Unity for more screenshots and details!
Yes; this is Capcom US's April Fools' joke. Not a bad idea though, yeah? :^)
Nice April Fools day prank, Capcom..... You're a bit late on the whole valentines dating shenanigans.ReplyDelete
I would believe this if they spent more than 5 minutes on the art.ReplyDelete
It is obvious that they are just imitating the artstyle commonly associated with the genre. No need to be so judgemental.Delete
Black Pants? Well that's just weird, that is my screen name at a website....Delete
Interesting that the social media platform is called "beatbox" in the screenshot with the silhouette of the yet to be revealed Mega Man 11 robot master. Wondering if this is some elaborate attempt to give us a hint at their identity.ReplyDelete
Otherwise, fun and silly. Shocked you didn't jump at the opportunity for your own gag post, protodude,
I'd play itReplyDelete
I thought Capcom gone crazy. Even if it was April fool.ReplyDelete
i wish though like i'll never live my dreams of dating zero ;_;ReplyDelete
Is Rockman Unity the Japanese equivalent of Capcom Unity? They had new robot masters.ReplyDelete
Sorry I should explain. The link goes to a post on a forum that translates the joke.Delete
If this became one of the April Fools Pranks to come true, it would be the first new Capcom project I've bought in years.ReplyDelete
FOLLOW THROUGH WITH IT YOU COWARDS.ReplyDelete
Honestly? I'd be down for something like this. I have really fond memories of playing Namco High and I'm glad I got to play it, before it closed up, and this looks a lot like–ReplyDelete
What… do you mean it was an April Fools joke?
… … …
I-I have to go, now…! Bweeh…!
Stupid prank. It is too obviously an April Fool's day. Terrible idea! FAILED! HAHAHA!ReplyDelete
i don't even think they where expecting people to believe it. Just throwing it for the sake of doing something fun for the 1st of April, like Myanimelist anouncing a anime about Myanimelist.Delete
I've heard Bass route is particularly hard.ReplyDelete
I'll be honest i would play this a lot.ReplyDelete
It would be something new in the series weird but it has its appeal
"w-wood you like t-to go to p-p-prom with me?"
This made me chuckle
Wouldn't that make this Megaman Legends just without the dungeon crawling?ReplyDelete
I'd play it.ReplyDelete
Everyone knows Guts Man, Stone Man, and Concrete Man are best husbands to go on a date with.ReplyDelete
I agree! People will predictably will go for the twink Robot Masters (and the females, because of course they will), but the real prizes to be had are the bots who are thick as hell.Delete
