We've known for awhile that a Steam version of Rockman X DiVE was coming. And now, we have the official word from Capcom Taiwan. The game will land on Steam this month!
Find all the details after the break!

First and foremost, we have to talk about availability. Initially the game will be available in the following countries: Taiwan, Macau, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, India.
According to the development team on the (geo-blocked) Steam page, players who have been playing the mobile version on the Asian server will be able to bind their Steam Account and continue playing with their current progress.
System requirements are as follows:
Judging by the images provided on the Steam page, it doesn't look like there are any substantial visual improvements over the mobile version. Of course, we will have to wait and see if they intend on taking advantage of PC hardware even in the slightest. At least this version will support some console gamepads natively, as we mentioned before.
Now, the important question here is if this version will be available locally in North America and Europe. With Global version of the game already up and running in NA and some countries (with more to come), it's worth mentioning again that NebulaJoy don't have the Steam version on their agenda.
So as things stands today, your best bet to play the Steam version is through a VPN... which is unfortunately against Steam's TOS. So... we'll see, I guess.
