Dynamo Joins Mega Man X DiVE Next Week

Next week, the global version of Mega Man X DiVE's NA server sees the arrival of none other than Mega Man X5/X6's famous mercenary —Dynamo.

Dynamo's first active skill is D Blade. It launches a D Blade to deal 181.44% damage to all targets in its path. Once the D Blade penetrates a target, damage reduces to 25%. The D Blade will return to your location after traveling a specific distance. It can even move through landscapes and barriers.

His second active skill is Tsubame Gaeshi, which inflicts 362.88% attack damage to targets within range. The player becomes immune to all damage while slashing.

Dynamo's banner will be available for one week. What's more? The NA server will receive a new X DiVE Maximum Race event with Aqua Buster memories as the primary reward, and the fourth Boss Rush with Pyro Executioner memories.

The EU server, meanwhile, is moving on to the second week of the "Star Force" event. The LATAM server will begin week two of the "Summer Treasure Hunt".

The global version's 1st anniversary is around the corner as well. Look forward to it!

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection Development is 50% Complete

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection's announcement in June was met with a lot of positivity... and several unanswered questions. Many fans were left concerned due to the apparent lack of features (online multiplayer?) and games modes.

Now, thanks to the latest issue of Famitsu, we can say with certainty that the game is exactly 50% completion. That would explain why Capcom set a very vague 2023 release, let alone few in-depth details about the collection's content. 

Jada Toys Teasing Mega Man Line Reveal at SDCC 2022

Premium action figure manufacturer Jada Toys are gearing up for a new Mega Man product line, it seems. 

According to Toy News International, a classic series Mega Man logo was included in Jada Toys' San Diego Comic-Con press junket. This heavily implies we'll see something at their booth (#3746) next week. 

If you want an idea of what could be in store for Mega Man, check out their recently-announced Street Fighter figures. Nifty stuff. Hard to say if Mega Man will be classic series focused or not. The above logo usually accompanies classic... but there have been a few exceptions in the past. Whatever the case, we'll keep an ear to the ground. 

Any pie-in-the-sky figures you want to see from 'em?

English Translation Released for First Two Chapters of Rockman DASH Manhua

Several years after it began, the Rockman DASH manhua translation project is making headway. The first two chapters have been scanned, translated and uploaded to MangaDex courtesy of RockmanCosmo. You can check 'em out here!

The manhua is an officially-licensed, single volume book written and illustrated by Wu Heyi in 2000. It's a pretty faithful re-telling of Rockman DASH 1 with a few fun twists. For example, Rock faces off against Bon Bonne after trashing Tron's Feldynaught. It's different but it kinda works! Also, our boy can totally switch Special Weapons on the fly. Sorry, Roll.

Additional translated chapters are currently in the pipeline. Bookmark the page above and check back soon!

Players can try their luck using the free skin pack ticket to get one of twenty hero skins. Rising Fire X stands among the new duds. It's X's second skin next to the Double Cyclone.
