UPDATE: It's a game, too!
Capcom announced today a special collaboration project between idol group TEAM SHACHI and Rockman. The project is called: "ROCKMAN 20XX ~ fight! TEAM SHACHI ~" and will be fully revealed on September 12th during the Rockman Zero & ZX Dual Hero Collection Special Stage at Tokyo Game Show. More details after the break!
Don't let the trailer confuse you: this is a music project, not a game. The collaboration will bring TEAM SHACHI's 1st single "Rocket Queen feat. MCU" to the digital and streaming market on September 12th and will be released on a variety of physical editions on October, 2nd.
Many of you may recognize the name "MCU". He is a member of the band Kick the Can Crew, a mainstream hip hop group from Tokyo. He is a well known Rockman fan and is not rare to see him playing Rockman games on streams. He also was a special guest during the Rockman 30th Anniversary Live concerts and the Rockman Classics Collection 2 commemorative stream done by Capcom TV.
The single will be release in 4 versions:
- Time Train Edition [Limited Edition]
- Super Tough Disk [First Press Limited Edition]
- Strong Energy Disk Version
- Positive Exciting Soul Disk Version.
You can see the covers below. In the Super Tough Disk Version the girls are wearing the Rock Buster!
If you want to take a look at what kind of music they perform here is a clip of Rock Away the B-Side track for the Rocket Queen feat. MCU single.
And to finish this post, here's a couple of promotional pictures!
That's just... WowReplyDelete
The Japanese never fail to impress me with their ways...
Finally a game that explains what happened between x and classic!ReplyDelete
I mean, we know what happened.Delete
Eh. We just haven't seen if Mega Man scrapped all the bots/Proto Man's power core took out Mega/Proto/Bass or if the governments of Earth brought down the hammer. Everything else is clear-cut.Delete
Naw I mean clearly that's not true there is a game that explains it in the article above!Delete
The moment when this kind of things happen is when you know that the Japanese audience recognize a franchise's importance.ReplyDelete
Wow!! Japanese idol groups are one of my favorites!! I can't wait to see how this goes! :DReplyDelete
I have no words just wtf disappointment.ReplyDelete
This… seems to have very little to do with Rockman as a whole.ReplyDelete
It'll fit in well with the rest of the random merchandise that Capcom's spawned, ho-ho-ho~
