When it comes to skins, as mentioned in previous posts, you can get Alia's summer skin for free by playing the "Summer Vacation for Lord of Snowy Plain" stage event. She cost 5000 points which is relatively easy to get.

The development team also surprised announced this morning that Swimsuit Layer will receive two alternative skins and a single new one for Swimsuit Roll. They are already available in the game and each cost 200EM.

The "Summer Vacation for Lord of Snowy Plain" starts today and last until August 20 at 15:59 (UTC+8)

The event stage takes place in a special version of the Area H stage emulating a summer amusement park with Mettaur Gigant as the mid-boss and Chill Penguin with a watermelon themed armor as the final boss.

It's a really well done stage with tons of unique elements, including surf boards you can ride! Just like in the previous events, this one has an online ranking and a copious list of rewards to exchange for the points acquired from playing the stage with 220 EM and Alia's skin as the best rewards.

Below you can see the best weapons and characters to use in the stage.

  1. 8k em and no new characters, but I'm not giving up yet. Thankfully, we have 2 weeks. Good luck, everyone!

  2. Dear Capcom and general public... boobs don't work that way. Clothes don't work like that.

    Just... everything doesn't work like that.

    1. Blah blah blah... it is what it is dude, move on. You seem to take this personal. The design is fine, you people are triggered because it shows “too much” these are cartoon characters, if you’re somehow aroused or offended by this, you’re really giving it way too much importance

    2. Does being a cartoon make it right? It's an E rated game; it needs to be toned down for the sake of the young people if nothing else.

    3. E for everyone does not mean Bikini's are illegal. I'm sure children go to the beach.
      Seriously of all the garbage this is the thing to get outraged over?
      The bigger issue is young people playing this disgusting cash grab toilet drain.

    4. Well, I'm not going to try to argue with you; if you see nothing wrong with this sort of attire then it's unfortunate but there's nothing I can do to change anyone's mind. At least I know where I stand. I still love and will play this game and will just avoid the way they dressed Layer, but I am disappointed nonetheless. Let's at least just entitle each other to our own opinions, please.

    5. Man I hate prudes like you. Like that other person said it's just a bikini which kids are going to see in real life when to go to the beach or a pool. In my country they're even gonna see bare breasts at the beach.

      It got an E rating which means it's approved for all ages, beyond that it's up to parents what their kids can play / look at.
      And if you personally have a problem with it don't play it.

  3. Again,I still think it's Stupid that Alia and Layer are wearing heels instead of Sandals. Better fix this with Marino and the other girls.

  4. I'm gonna try to come up with better swimsuit designs for these gals..especially for Iris. I'll even include other Mega Man girls. I'll submit them on my Deviantart page.

  5. Why did they do this to poor Layer?! They ought to change the suit design to look more like Alia's. In my opinion, they should have just gone with the Layer suit from the original concept art. It's more fitting for her anyway; it matched her regular armor. I'm glad I'm saving my EM for something better.

  6. I'm not playing this game (nothing against it, mobile gaming just is'nt my thing), but theses are some nice Artworks. Even Seahorse looks cool.

  7. Lot of X4 love in this game. that's nice.
    Aren't they raising the level cap a bit fast, though?

  8. Robot women in bikini :)
    I like this

  9. From the other skins, Layer's central is similar to Setsuna Meio in for me.

  10. Already hearing horror stories from people sinking up to $200 worth of EM into this game and still not getting the Swimsuit characters, I'm not gonna sweat this one.

  11. Anyone know if there is Alia art like the Layer and Roll ones?

    1. There is art for Alia, but her swimsuit is just a skin, so I can't blame Proto Dude for not putting it up, Roll and Layer are their own characters with their own skills.

  12. By now they should make remakes of classic X games with the bosses theyre using.

    1. A game with 8 bosses at a reasonable price with no gacha nonsense?
      I'd love to see that.

  13. Where's Swimsuit Zero and X?

    1. They not hoes...

    2. That never stopped some of the fangirls. :p

  14. You know what is sad...that the Mega Man series was never into fan service to begin with
    I mean in classic you have like..what girls, Roll, Cossak daughter's and Splash Woman. Good luck sexualizing the first two as they are underage girls and the last one is...good luck with that

    In X you only have the 3 operators (which one of them isn't interesting) and yes, the other 2 are sexualized a lot. And Iris which is again underage
    I never played Command Mission but according to a Google search looks like there are some girl characters there, but who even knows them? barely anyone played Command Mission

    In Legends you have Tron Bonne, which can be super sexualized and i'm surprised they didn't do it yet. Roll is not interesting there but can work I guess

    In Zero you have Ciel and Levithan and..yeah. Nothing
    ZX Has Ashe, Alie and Pandora (I guess)

    The true meat actually lies in the EXE and Star Force series
    Mayl, Sal, Miyu, Madd, Mari, Ribitta, Ms Millions, Bride, Tamako, Anetta, Shuko, Lilly, Pat, Yuika
    Star Force has Sonia, Luna, Hope, Tia...and that's it..but still more than the classic series has to offer

    If they are not going to the EXE route it will become boring fast

    1. The fact that they don't often go the route you are referring to is what makes Rockman unique and ultimately what many people love about the franchise. I hope that Capcom doesn't begin sliding down the slope of sexualism by starting out with things like what they just did to Layer. It will ruin the pure and innocent image which the Rockman games have conveyed thus far.

      I suppose every video game series has its share of lust among the fan base, though. That's unfortunate. :/

    2. @Nanis You forgot Plum for the Classic Series,Berkana for the X Series,Neige from tbe Zero Series,and Matilda Caskett,Sara,and Yuna from Legends.

    3. There was Rockman Xover... but who remembers it?

  15. Okay. I kind of hate to admit this, but… that second palette for Roll actually looks kind of nice.

    Still wish she had, as Tiny Proto put it, "big ol' booties," though. Nyeh heh~

    1. Leggies. Booties makes me think of butt, even if it means boots in certain contexts.

  16. Just wondering next week,is there another new banner with new character and weapon for this summer event?

  17. Can I ask why would a robot have big breast? What is the function? I cant get past this mental block so forgive me.
