In late March, a series of Steam-related strings were discovered in the then-most-recent build of Rockman X DiVE. They carried the implication that a Steam version of the game was in the works. And now, with the advent of the game's May update, a new piece of evidence lends further credence
A Steam icon has found its way into the updated UI data (above). It's among other icons where you can link your Facebook, Line and Apple accounts to the game to transfer save data and/or switch devices.
The Steam icon cannot be seen by players at the moment; the asset is hiding away in the game data until the day it's needed. The Steam-related strings from the March are still there as well. You can read those after the jump below, if you're so inclined.
Pending official word from Capcom, the Steam version of Rockman X DiVE is *not* confirmed. But as evidence continues to mount, it's becoming increasingly likely we might here something soon. Gotta wait and see for now.
These are the Steam strings hiding away in the game data, which, again, were not present up until March. Different languages of the same strings were found as well. Here they are in English:
"w_KEY": "STEAM_TRANSACTION_CANCELED", "w_ENG": "Steam purchase cancelled", "w_KEY": "STEAM_TRANSACION_FAILED", "w_ENG": "Steam purchase failed", "w_KEY": "STEAM_VAC_BANNED", "w_ENG": "The account has been banned by Steam VAC",
"w_ENG": "Steam product ID doesn't match", "w_KEY": "STEAM_NO_SHOPITEM_DESC",
"w_ENG": "Unable to obtain Steam product description ",
"w_ENG": "You are not logged in on your Steam account. Please start the game on the Steam panel"
