Our 2nd Trivia Night has concluded!



Our 2nd Trivia Night was a blast and thank you to all who attended!

Final Ranking


Congrats to our winner Owens with 23 points!

2nd place with 20 points : DWN083
3rd place with 14 points : Repliroid wielding a Z-Saver
4th place with 11 points : Techno-Kuno
5th place with 4 points : Kiroma
6th place (a 2-way tie) at 2 points each : Ninja X & Xeno the Wanderer

Side note : Because Xeno was the champion last time by such a huuuuge margin he was held back from answering this time around and helped us host.  Had he been allowed to answer everything instead of just questions no one knew, he would have won again most likely.


Check back later for the recording of the event!

Mega May is upon us and bringing events all month long!

All right Mega fans, Mega May is here and we've got plenty of events planned to celebrate it!  The Discord has wanted more movie nights and more trivia... so they will get it!  We're also trying to plan a Drawpile for our artistically inclined users so keep an eye out for that.  Every event will be announced again previous to it happening on the Discord and our other social media pages, but all times and places will also be updated here on this post as well.


May 1st - 30th :  Art contest to design a new Mega Man World logo for the site, social media pages, and Discord server.  This can be a revamped and updated version of our helmet / globe logo, or if you can think of something better create something totally new to represent MMW.  Winner will get to pick between a few different items from my personal collection as their prize and also be commissioned to help with the rest of the website assets (buttons, more logos, etc)  One of the prize choices will be an Amiibo version of Mega Man 11 for the Nintendo Switch.  A post with all details of the contest will come soon with more details.

May 4th (7pm EST) : Movie Night!  We'll be watching the live action fan film by Eddie Lebron!  The runtime is about an hour and a half so bring some popcorn! ( https://cytu.be/r/MegaManWorld )


May 11th (7pm EST) : Movie Night!  We'll be watching various fanimations, short films, stop animations, etc.  There's around 30 of them picked out but many are only around 1 minute long, with some of the longer ones being around 7 minutes.  Come and hang out and discuss them! ( https://cytu.be/r/MegaManWorld )


May 18th (6pm EST) : Trivia Night II, hosted by EncrypteData & alraz.  Rules will be the same as last time and will take place on the Discord server ( http://discord.MegaMan.world ) in a temporary room and on voice chat.  Participants will again be awarded with the "Contestant" role on the server and the winner the "Trivia Champ" role.  

May 25th (7pm EST) : Movie Night!  (details TBD) ( https://cytu.be/r/MegaManWorld )

Every Sunday :  As always a new comic will be posted for all to enjoy!  ( http://comics.MegaMan.world )

Drawpile event : Time and date TBD.  A fun event for all our artists to collaborate and doodle, draw, and sketch together on one big canvas.

Capcom releasing a 16 game plug and play arcade stick!

Capcom just put up for pre-order a plug and play arcade joystick with 16 of their classic arcade games.  Making the list of course is Mega Man : The Power Battle!  It's powered by micro USB, comes with HDMI out, and its own onboard Wifi for uploading your scores to online leader-boards.  Right now the date of release for this device is October 25th later this year so we've got awhile still to wait to play with his thing.  This wait will also give you some time to save up the money for it because at $260 it isn't cheap!  Below some images of the device, a trailer Capcom has released for it, and a breakdown of the measurements.

If you would like to pre-order the device you may do so from the official Capcom store at the link below :

First 4 Figures needs our input for the new Zero statue!

If you haven't heard of First 4 Figures before they are an awesome collectibles company that makes video game statues and has a close relationship with its fans.  They often turn to their fans for input to help mold their future statue lines, licencors, poses, and even facial expressions for almost everything they make.  This time around they want our help in choosing the pose for their upcoming Zero statue!  This will be the 5th statue in their Mega Man lineup so far as they've already made an X, Mega Man, Protoman, and Mega Man on Item 2 statues in the past. 

If you would like to vote on this poll and are a member of FaceBook please go join their collectors club and vote at the link below.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/first4figures/permalink/2042768972684160/

If you would like to help out and vote but don't want to use the official poll please vote on our social media posts and we will relay the info to their team.  I will add a temporary channel on the Discord as well to allow voting.  (www.megaman.world/discord)

Below are the proposed poses they have in mind as well as a larger view with a short description.  I'm sure the base proposals are subject to change so try to focus more on Zero's pose itself more than the overall proposal.



Choice A. : Zero with Z-Saber raised above his head standing on ruins.



Choice B. : Zero slashing the air in a battle pose with saber slash trail effects around him.  Know F4F these effects would probably be glowing on the higher end editions of the statue for a pretty cool glowing effect.



Choice C. :  This pose Zero looks like he might be mid jump coming from an exploding ground.



Choice D. : Zero looks like he's in a downward slash coming almost to a kneeling position.



Choice E. :  Zero in another big slash motion, more of a mid battle pose on what appears to be some sort of hover platform.
