Original story: A major new addition to Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection has been hiding under our noses this whole time. Rockman Corner reader Sidd Finch discovered a new sidequest in Mega Man ZX Advent that unlocks "Chapter W". The new campaign features a brand-new area and the ability to play as Prometheus and Pandora.
You can find all the details after the break!
To unlock "Chapter W", you must first make sure your copy of Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is up to date. Next, launch Mega Man ZX Advent. Load up your save file (or start a new game) and reach the point in the game where you face off against Prometheus and Pandora.
Once you've defeated them, return to the "sibling room" in the "Mysterious Lab". Investigate the terminal beside the right capsule. Grey/Ashe will reference the existence of data that wasn't there before. You'll then receive secret disk "O08". Take the disk to the nearest Transerver to be analyzed by Master Mikhail. Once decrypted, Mikhail will explain that the disk contains a great deal of information about Prometheus and Pandora; their past and future ambitions. After this, "Chapter W" will unlock from the title screen after you've completed the game.
"Chapter W" is presented as a separate campaign from ZX Advent. It is a new story that takes place approximately three weeks after the events of ZX Advent. Prometheus and Pandora, having survived the destruction of the undersea volcano, wander the "Slumbering Lands" searching for a means to recover their energy and prolong their lives.
Taking a cue from Mega Man X8's "tag assist system", players can alternate between Prometheus and Pandora at any time. Each character has their own unique set of attacks and a powerful Giga Crush attack.
Because their bodies are so heavily damaged from the events of ZX Advent, Prometheus and Pandora's HP slowly depletes. The player is encouraged to defeat enemies as fast as possible to acquire Life Energy and maintain a steady amount of HP.
Sidd Finch nor I have yet to beat Chapter W, therefore we don't know what awaits us at the very end. A teaser for ZX3, perhaps? Who knows! This is all just too exciting!
Happy April Fools!
