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 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 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.
The "Wily Numbers" Instrumental Stage Tracks DLC that was originally given away at some retails for pre-ordering the game is now available on all of the e-Shops for free! Using this soundtrack makes it like playing a whole new game and may change many opinions of those who said they didn't really care for 11's original soundtrack. Go get it downloaded and let us know what you think!
