With the Japanese version of Rockman X DiVE celebrating its half anniversary very soon, both Capcom Japan and Capcom Taiwan announced a slew of new features for the game, including the very first collaboration with another Capcom franchise.
Find all the details after the break!
First we have the return of the infamous 3 vs 3 PVP battle mode which players had the chance to experience during the Closed Beta Test. While this mode didn't work very well during the CBT, we can only hope that they figured out how to not only properly balance it, but improve the more problematic lag and connectivity issues.
Next we have the Guild System. In Yoda Hideto's words, this is a mode where you can gather members and it will have unique systems like "add up all members' power, buff all members and unique rewards". While it's not the most detailed description, I think you can guess how it will work, more or less.
Lastly, a collaborate with another Capcom IP is coming in the near future. This doesn't include any other Mega Man series. I know many of you have been waiting for the Star Force collaboration -- that will come in due time. This, however, is about another Capcom franchise like Monster Hunter, Resident Evil or Street Fighter, to name a few.
Yoda Hideto jokingly named some candidates: Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, SonSon or Commando. With Capcom's rich and extensive portfolio, the sky is the limit. But if you ask me, I think it'll be one of the company's more popular brands.
No time frame was given for this new features or the new collaboration other than a mere "they will be in the game as soon as possible". While we wait, let us know which Capcom IP you would like to see Rockman X DiVE in the comments!
