Nearly 30 years later and we're still learning more about Mega Man X1. A segment from an old episode of GamePro TV was recently unearthed (hiding out on YouTube for over ten years!) and it features long-lost footage of an early pre-release build. Chief among the many differences, there's a very brief shot of a completely unused, never-before-seen Maverick!

G Fuel Announces Mega Man Slushee Energy Drink

G Fuel, the "official energy drink of Esports®", is teaming up with Capcom to launch a new Mega Man-inspired energy drink. The "Blue Bomber Slushee" is a sugar-free, vanilla blue raspberry flavored formula that purportedly boosts your energy and focus. It even comes with a Mega Buster shaped shaker bottle.

Details are few and far between at the moment, but this appears to be a limited-time product relegated to G Fuel's online store. You'll have to join the waitlist to be notified when it goes on sale. 

So yeah; pretty random crossover here. The shaker's kinda cool. But, uh, missed opportunity much?

GameCenter CX Kicks Off 26th Season with Rockman 5

The twenty-sixth season of GameCenter recently premiered in Japan. And to the surprise of longtime viewers, Shinya Arino kicked things off with Rockman 5 -- eleven years after clearing Rockman 4.

As one would expect from GCCX Rockman runs, Rockman 5 is no cakewalk for the "shachou". Arino's dead-pan sense of humor hasn't changed in eleven years though and that helps him along. He's also given tips and moral support from the season's newest assistant director too. Watching the two piece together the Robot Master order is great fun.

At the time of this writing, the episode hasn't been subbed. But a raw is out there! I can't exactly link you to it... but good things come to those who Google

Thanks for the tip, AWD!

Keisuke Mizuno Rockman X Guitar Going On Sale at Beep Akihabara

If you happen to be visiting (or maybe living?) in Japan, you might want to swing by Beep Akihabara soon. The retro video game store will be parting ways with its famed Rockman X guitar, signed by none other than series artist Keisuke Mizuno.

This one-of-a-kind telecaster was made to commemorate Rockman X Anniversary Collection in Japan (Mega Man X Legacy Collection). It even appears on the cover of the game's OST, wielded with great power by X. And yes -- Mizuno drew that piece!

The store didn't disclose just how much the guitar will cost when it goes on sale tomorrow. Safe to say, I think, it won't be cheap. Bring lots of Zenny, if you're so inclined!
