New Mega Man X model from Kotobukiya


Kotobukiya has recently shown a prototype model of their upcoming Mega Man X model. You can see the images in their Twitter account:


Right now there isn't much more information about availability or price; so, be sure to keep our eyes open for it!

For those who don't know: Kotobukiya has made multiple build-it-yourself model kits of the Mega Man universe in the past: Mega Man, Roll, Proto Man and Mega Man Zero. It is still possible to find all of them floating around on the depts of the internetz if you really want them really hard. Most of them have been re-released, so, they shouldn't be that hard to find.

Now, it's speculation time!
The fact that they are releasing X and not classic (or any other) Mega Man, strongly suggests that we might see a new entry in the X series this year. CAPCOM has already confirmed that they have started discussing a new game, but has not published any more information about their timelines, which series, etc. Selling an X model kit right about the same time as the game comes out would be the best way to maximize sells. We can only hope!

Capcom has released the Mega Man sales numbers!

In an investor relation Q&A, Capcom has finally given up the numbers to their sales and Mega Man did quite well! 

Mega Man 11 sold 870,000 units since it's launch (Oct 2nd, 2018). 

Mega Man X's Legacy Collections sold 920,000 units since it's launch (July, 2018).  


Safe to say that both of these titles did extremely well and will easily break the 1 Million sales mark soon.  Congrats on the amazing comeback Blue Bomber, we hope these sales figures will convince Capcom that this franchise needs continued love and development.

Rockman enlisted by Osaka Police for cyber security awareness.

Starting February 1st through March 18th, the Osaka prefectural Police Cyber Crime prevention spokesperson is officially Rockman!  This event is being held to raise awareness about cyber-crime and how to prevent it.  This really should have been a job for Rockman.exe, but we won't complain.  During this month long event there will be lectures, tours, robotic programming courses for the kiddies, and even some Rockman themed security gifts given out.  Rockman himself will also be awarded with a certificate of appreciation from the city!  Hopefully someone will get some pics of this and we can share them with everyone.  Check out the posters posted around town as well as the full article from the Osaka Police below.



The full announcement and schedule from the Osaka Police :

Capcom crowned Best Publisher by Metacritic for 2018!

Metacritic just put out their ranking of the major publishers for 2018 (must have had 12 releases or more), and Capcom came out number one!  It appears Capcom is back in the game business with lots of great releases last year, but their best was Monster Hunter World sadly and not Mega Man 11.  Their lowest rated game last year was Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 with a metascore of only 60... Thanks a lot X7...  Last year Capcom ranked #5 on the list, so this was a great comeback!  Keep it up Capcom!
