Capcom making comics to help newcomers to Mega Man 11.

Last night Capcom released the first comic in a series they call "Advice from Dr. Light's Lab".  No idea how many comics will come from this but they are cute to say the least.  This first comic tells the player that it is OK to lower the difficulty of the game if you're having trouble.  Great advice for a newcomer... but I'm sure many past fans of the game would rather spend endless rage inducing runs than lower it themselves.  If this becomes an often event of them posting comics I'll make a new post and keep adding them as they come out.

The original tweet :


Rockman teams up with Red Bull to take on Tundra Man!

In a very strange collaboration, Mega Man is teaming up with Red Bull in Japan to celebrate their 30th anniversary.  So much so that they've even created an 8-Bit mini game just for the occasion that you can actually collect Red Bull cans instead of E-Tanks to power yourself up (with wings of course, duh).  The main goal of this game is to beat Tundra Man in an ice skating competition.  As weird as this all is... it's brought some really cool artwork and assets to play with, like official 8-Bit sprites and this image below which I re-created from the website asset layers.

The website that contains the game is located here : https://redbull-rockman.com/

Here's a shot of the game where he's already powered up with a Red Bull can and has gained the wings which make him invulnerable to enemies.

Bonus adorable Rockman sprite with Red Bull Wings!


First 4 Figures making another Mega Man statue!

First 4 Figures will be soon showing some details on their next Mega Man statue.  From the looks of things it will be a faithful replica of the Mega Man 11 style Rock and be made of PVC instead of their past few statues which were more expensive and made of resin.  Below is the teaser post by CEO Alex Davis in the First 4 Figures Official Collectors Club on FaceBook.  I'll do what I can get get more info on this as soon as I can so hang tight!

I currently own all of the First 4 Figure Mega Man related statues, but for those of you not familiar with their products, take a gander at the pictures below with links if you'd like to purchase.

New line of Funko action figures revealed!

Funko is coming out with a new line of action figures, and for once they are not their POP! figures which many collectors seem to dislike.  The release date appears to be January 22nd. and the figures will come in 4 variations (one being a Chase) and also a Dr. Wily figure as well!  The initial launch has Dr. Wily, normal blue Mega Man, Thunder Beam, and Leaf Shield with Atomic Fire being the chase of the latter.  They also include extra hands if you don't want his Mega Buster to be equipped.

If you'd like to pre-order them Click Here as they are currently up on Entertainment Earth.  It appears they are also on Amazon if you'd like to order them.


New Mega additions to Smash Bros Ultimate!

Thanks to today's Smash Bros themed Nintendo Direct we now see more Mega Man things join the mix!  Dr. Wily will be joining this mix as an assist trophy that will rain down havoc on your foes in his Wily machine!

Another completely new feature to the game was revealed in the way of a Spirits system which can be collected, leveled, and used to power up your characters.  To earn them you need to complete challenges like fighting Giant Mega Man among other things.

Mega Man comes to Monster Hunter World this week!

Just a friendly remind that Mega Man will be available very soon!  Twitter is saying tomorrow on the 18th, but Steam is saying the 19th for the collaboration event.  Either way, be sure to start busting those monsters with some 8bit flair!

Check out the Steam announcement here :


Mega Man Race board game gameplay!

Our friends over at Mega Man Race have now released videos of how the game is played (with subtitles).  This game is still looking great, and we really hope this makes it into production.  Check out both Part 1 & Part 2 below!


E-Capcom Exclusive, Rockman 11 : Complete Edition unboxing

Made my first unboxing video... literally zero production value, but you get the idea.  lol  It's uploading now so you may not be able to see it for a few hours, but I'll be asleep so check out the pics in the meantime and come back later for the video.  😀

The following pictures are of the Collector Amiibo edition and its main box contents.

The following pics are of the collector edition bonus item box that comes with the complete edition only.

 These clear post cards were another even more limited item that only came to people that pre-ordered during the first batch.

These not included in the Complete Edition, but figured someone might like to see the collector edition History of Mega Man book / MM11 players guide.  It also comes with a limited edition and numbered lithograph.


Sorry guys... there is no Star Force costume in Mega Man 11.

Thanks to the Complete Edition of Rockman 11 from Japan and the developer notebook that comes with it, we now know why there was a Star Force looking Mega Man in Game Informer's article.  They needed a place holder during development for Tundra Man's transformation until it could be finalized... and this was it.  Game Informer's reporters snapped a pic of it without them knowing and now the mystery is solved.  It still seems like a waste to have such an awesome model already made for the game though... so hopefully this won't be the last of it we will see, especially since they know how badly everyone was looking forward to it.  Future DLC anyone???  Give us what we want Capcom!

Mega Man to be Adapted into Live-Action Hollywood Film for the First Time!
- Capcom aims to energize the brand further on the series' 30th anniversary milestone -

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced that its popular Mega Man IP is scheduled to be adapted into a live-action Hollywood film for the first time.
Since Mega Man debuted on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987, the series secured its position as one of Capcom's major brands, boasting cumulative sales of 32 million units worldwide (as of June 30, 2018). Mega Man gained a following due to the challenging gameplay that contrasted with the memorable design of its characters; in the 30 years following its launch, the series has spawned numerous spin-offs, which altogether still enjoy the support of a deeply passionate fan base, consisting of everyone from younger players to hardcore gamers alike. Further, the Mega Man brand has been utilized in a wide variety of mediums around the globe, such as in character merchandise, comic books, animated television shows and movies. Mega Man 11, the newest title in the series, was released on October 2, 2018 in North America and Europe and October 4 in Japan.
The feature film, tentatively titled MEGA MAN, will be written and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, and is scheduled to be distributed by 20th Century Fox. Chernin Entertainment, responsible for the Planet of the Apes series, will be producing it with Masi Oka, of Heroes fame. Based on the influential and globally beloved Mega Man franchise, Capcom aims to appeal to a diverse audience, including not only game players but action movie fans as well, with an adaptation that maintains the world of the Mega Man games, while incorporating the grand production and entertainment value that Hollywood movies are known for.
Capcom proactively leverages its rich library of original content in film and screen adaptations in conjunction with its Single Content Multiple Usage strategy. In addition to the release of Hollywood film Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in 2017 (released December 2016 in Japan), Mega Man: Fully Charged, an animated television show, began airing in North America in August 2018.
Going forward, Capcom remains committed to increasing the brand value of its game content by maximizing the significant promotional effect of visual media.

Gold Rockman 11 amiibo... only 10 made?

Update 10/4 : This is confirmed now by Capcom Japan in the link below.  Hopefully they'll make more after this competition is over...

I can't find any info on this other than one tweet from Reploid 21XX... but apparently there's a golden version of the new amiibo and they only made 10.  WTF Japan!?  They're supposedly giving them away in a raffle to Mega Man 11 owners who register the game with them... so unless you live in Japan and are EXTREMELY lucky, we're all out of luck this time around.  😭  Japan sure is obsessed with gold lately...
