New E-Capcom Goods: Mega Man "Vox Nation" Figure, EXE Mug & Towel

To celebrate their 40th anniversary, Capcom is launching a new line of "Vox Nation" soft figures. These cube-shaped figures feature nine characters ranging from Phoenix Wright to classic series Mega Man. Each figure stands approximately 6 inches tall and is currently exclusively available at E-Capcom. (UPDATE: It's up at HobbyLink Japan!)

On the Battle Network side of things, Capcom has prepared two new pieces of merchandise for your collection: a drinking mug and a muffler towel. The mug showcases key art from Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, while the towel features excellent MegaMan and Lan's side profiles.

If you're interested in ordering any of these goodies but live outside of Japan, you'll need to use a proxy service. E-Capcom does not directly ship abroad.

Mega Man 11 Sales Top 1.7 Million, Legacy Collections On the Rise

Mega Man 11 continues its steady advance as the best selling entry in the franchise. According to the newest Capcom Platinum titles charts, the game now sits at 1.7 million units sold. That's an increase of 100K units from last November to fiscal year ending March 31st 2023.

Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man X Legacy Collection saw growth during this period as well. Mega Man Legacy Collection advanced to 1.4 million units (up 100K). Mega Man X Legacy Collection also charted with 1 million units. It's also worth pointing out that, according to then-series producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, both X Legacy Collection volumes combined topped 1.4 million units in late 2019. Therefore, presumably, the data reflected on the Platinum Titles likely refers to Volume 1 only. 

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection narrowly missed the cutoff for inclusion in the Platinum Titles due to its release timing falling outside of the fiscal year period. Because the game already surpassed one million units shortly after its April debut, we can eagerly anticipate its inclusion in the forthcoming fiscal year's final tally.
