MEGA MAN X DiVE is now available on the Google Play store

The closed beta test is almost upon us and to start things off Capcom of Taiwan has made it available to download early.  Sadly if you try to launch it you'll just get Capcom startup sound for the game followed directly by an animation for connecting and then a server error.  The CBT will allow access to those of you that have signed up ahead of time on the 12th as originally planned so just hold tight, we're almost there!

Download it now at the following link :

Protoman and Zero join the fight in Smash Bros!

Just announced in today's Nintendo Direct are two new costumes for your Mii available later today for just 75 cents each.  The best being Zero and Protoman of course!  Sadly they are still just costumes, but it's something right?  I'll be upgrading my custom fighters immediately as I'm sure many of you as well.  Check them out in the pics below!


As expected... Protoman will be a gunner.


Which of course makes Zero a Swordfighter.

Mega Man Zero / ZX Legacy Collection coming next year!

The moment you patient Mega Man Zero fans have been waiting for is finally happening!  All 6 games from the Zero and ZX collection are coming on one game next year.  It's slated for January 21st, 2020.  The new legacy collection also brings with it some upgrades much like the other legacy collections.  These upgrades include visual as before with the different filters, and the ability to save mid level, as well as a more casual experience for beginners to help keep them alive.


At the time of this writing it is only been leaked for the PS4, but you can bet that it will also come to the XBox One, Steam, and the Nintendo Switch.  Check out the full trailer below for more info!

Mega Man : The Wily Wars to get a reproduction cart next year.

The retro gaming accessory company Retro-Bit announced they plan on making reproduction collector carts of the never released stateside Wily Wars game for the Sega Genesis and MegaDrive.  Mega Man : The Wily wars was only released in Japan and Europe and is highly sought after by collectors for its rarity.  A complete and genuine (lots of fakes out there) copy easily reach $400+ on eBay regularly, so this coming out will get the game into more hands.  For those that have never played it, it is a compilation game consisting of remakes of Mega Man, Mega Man 2, and Mega Man 3 and an exclusive game mode called "Wily Tower" once all games are defeated. 

No exact date is confirmed at this time, but it is said it will most likely come out in Q1 2020, but check out their announcement tweet below.

Mega Man Royale is now playable!

A new fan game just entered in its Beta stage. Likely inspired by the late Mario Royale, JannyWare has been working on Mega Man Royale, and it is now in its Beta release!
Follow them on Twitter for updates: https://twitter.com/jannyware/



To play, all you need is a web browser. Go to http://megamanroyale.com/, type in your name and enter the lobby! There you can try out your controls and battle it out with other players in a safe environment. Mark yourself as ready, wait for your competitors to as well, and you can just start!



As soon as you start, you will be thrown into one of the most classic Mega Man stages. You start with only your Buster and Rush Coil, but enemies will drop weapons randomly. Make it through the stage as fast as you can, and brag about being faster than anyone else!

Mega Man live action movie most likely cancelled.

Disney announced that Fox would be cancelling most of it's productions that were planned due to the studio posting a $170 million loss in the fiscal 3rd quarter.  A large part of that loss being the giant flop from the recent movie Dark Phoenix.  This almost pretty much guarantees the Mega Man movie is going to never see the light of day anytime soon, or ever.  This will come to a relief of many who knew it would be horrible if it came to light, and a disappointment to those who truly wanted to see what could happen.  Maybe some day we'll get a movie we deserve, but for now that day isn't coming any time soon.

Rockman X DiVE, a new Mega Man X game is coming to mobile!

Just announced today by Capcom Taiwan is Rockman X DiVE a new game coming to Android and iOS devices.  The game will be released in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau regions and so far there is no release date mentioned.  There is supposedly a global release version in the works, but again, no date for that either.  Fingers crossed it comes shortly after the other release!

The story is about a computer system that stores all Mega Man X game data and it has been corrupted, which is why all of the characters seem to be mixed in together.  Your job will be to rescue and repair this data.  So far Mega Man, Zero, and Axl are known the be playable characters.  Hopefully this is a precursor to Capcom announcing Mega Man X9...  only time will tell.  

Be sure and check out the trailer below or check out the website Capcom has set up for the new game at http://rxd.capcom.com.tw/

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 :
