"Make Rockman" Announced
Announced on Monday via the Rockman Unity Twitter account, an interesting and unusual development with the franchise is about to unfold...
Details about this product are very scarce right now but we can tell you that Rockman x Programming is a tool/software that will help you to learn basic coding while making Rockman games or Rockman-like games.
The project is developed by Artec, a manufacturer specializing in educational materials for arts and crafts. Rockman x Programming will be available to pre-order next Monday at 11:00 JST on Makuake, a Japanese-based crowdfunding website. It remains to be seen if it will be distributed outside of Japan.
So that's all we know about this right now, and many questions linger. Why is this going up on a crowdfunding website? What is the significance of the tool in Rockman's hand? Is this for PC or consoles?
Also, the original Rockman Unity tweet mentions a "robot-kit" as part of this project and Artec does distribute a "ArtecRobo 2.0 Mecha". How does that tie in with this project?
You're probably just as confused and intrigued as us. We should know more soon, though.
What do you think?
