Kotobukiya Rockman X 4th Armor Release Date Announced and Other News
Kotobukiya's "Rockman X Model Kit Talk Live Ver.1.5" live stream finished a few hours ago and while no new model kits where shown, per se, we did get to see the finished Rockman X 4th Armor kit among other things. All the info after the break!
First off, we'd like to apologize for the image quality. They are screencaps from a 720p stream. Fear not, though; we will see proper images of the kit on Monday.
4th Armor X will be released on January 2021. Pre-orders will open next Monday at 11:00 JST. No price was shared nor any info about additional parts and effects beyond the charge shot shown in the images above and the effect for the Plasma shot that will come with the Rising Fire version of the model kit.
Thanks to the talk show, we also got our first glance at the Zero and Nightmare Zero box art drawn by Keisuke Mizuno. If you want to grab the smartphone wallpaper versions, head over to Rockman Unity and Kotobukiya's Twitter accounts.
When we first reported about this talk show we were shown a mysterious, pixelated design posted by Ucchy-san on the Rockman Unity blog. Turns out it was a custom design done by a Capcom employee with no significance whatsoever to Kotobukiya's model kit line. It was made just for fun.
If you want to see a few more designs and modifications of existing model kits by Capcom employees, you can do so by watching the archive of the talk show. You can also see the 4th armor model kit in the hands of the presenters, too.
Lastly, they also showed the store posters they will be using to promote the model kit. They are running a giveaway of previous model kits store posters on Twitter but it's something aimed to Japanese fans.
The next "Rockman X Model Kit Talk Live ver.2.0" will be held in November. Perhaps we will find out about a brand-new model kit then? By that time, both Zero model kits will be out and the Rising Fire model kit will be coming out that same month, too.
Come back on Monday for high quality images of the 4th armor model kit and more details! What do you think about the kit and the art for box art for Zero and Nightmare Zero?
