Due to numerous delays in development, Rockman X DiVE was unable to celebrate Valentine's Day last year. This Monday, though, Rockman X DiVE's first Valentine's Day event begins! Find all the details after the break!
The Valentine's Day event, "Colonel's Valentines Challenge", will be live next Monday through February 21. The gacha banner will stay for a few days after, up until February 24.
As you can see in the trailer above, the Valentine's Day characters are "Valentines Day Iris" and "Valentines Day Ciel." There's also the S rank weapon "Heart Spray Gun" which is called "Misora Shower" in the Japanese version, named after Mega Man Star Force's Sonia Strumm.
Valentines Day Iris' active skills are Heart Beam, which shoots a beam forward inflicting damage to targets within range, and Valentine's Gift, which spawns several chocolates that orbit around her acting as an offensive and defensive barrier.
One of Iris' passive skills allows her to recover 30% HP when HP is below 75%. This can only be triggered again after 45 seconds.
Valentines Day Ciel active skills are Chocolate Cyber-elf, which commands Passy to fly towards the enemy and causes damage. Her second active skill is Auto Chocolate Factory which deploys a factory that automatically spawns chocolate and gives enhanced defense when active.
One of Ciel's passive skills will give her a chance to summon a cyber-elf by her side when attacked.
I can't say I was expecting Colonel to debut in a seasonal event... but overall, it looks like they put a lot of effort into this one. I'm looking forward to start playing tomorrow.
