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!  We'll be watching some classic Ruby Spears episodes, the first episode of Mega Man : Fully Charged, and the Red Ash anime (with English subtitles) that spawned from the KickStarter!

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

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.

Mega Man item in this months Loot Gaming crate.

March's gaming crate has a "Sidekicks" theme and contains something to do with Mega Man.  Since it's a sidekick theme maybe it will be Roll, Rush, or Protoman related?  Only time will tell for now but it will most likely be a smaller item as the main franchise featured seems to be Sonic, so maybe a Sonic shirt with a Mega Man figurine?

If you'd like to get one follow the link below :



Also alongside this crate is the Epic Drop which is very much Mega Man themed giving away an SNES classic, wearable helm, and the Mega Man headphones.  (and a Sonic artbook)

[SPOILERS] The Mega Buster in Devil May Cry 5

This article contains SPOILERS of some game mechanics from Devil May Cry 5, including some DLC. This is your last warning to turn back.





With Devil May Cry 5 coming out recently, among other things, new game mechanics were introduced. One of the those mechanics was the ability for Nero, one of the game's protagonists, to use different hands, each granting him some unique abilities.

Nero unlocks many new hands throughout the game, and one of them is the very familiar Mega Buster, in the form of a DLC. Early in the game you gain access to the Mega Buster, costing 1000 red orbs per unit.

In game, the Mega Buster is fairly straightforward. Lemons! Pressing the Arm button will make Nero shoot lemons at his current height. While Nero won't shoot enemies that are higher up or lower down from him, he will turn to face an enemy that's close to in front of him. Locking on an enemy isn't an option either, as Lock On + Arm always uses Nero's Snatch ability, regardless of his active arm.

While the Mega Buster looks like Classic Mega Man's buster, it works a lot more like it did in the Starforce games. Not using the buster for a second or more will make your next shoot a bigger lemon, granting 120 damage, while repeatedly shooting small lemons will do 15 damage each.

Despite charging automatically, Nero can also charge the Mega Buster manually by holding the Arm button. This charged shot is much bigger, blue in color with yellow rings, and it has the ability to knock enemies back. This shot will also do 800 damage to the enemies it hits. However, as with all of Nero's arms, this big shot will destroy the Mega Buster. The Mega Buster can also be destroyed if an enemy hits Nero mid-shot, but this isn't likely to happen, as each shot action lasts a fraction of a second. Additionally, you can destroy the Mega Buster yourself and create a small explosion around you if you are tired of it or want to escape a tight situation.

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!
