The Answer

R20+5 contains page after page of interviews with Rockman series artists, past, present, and up and coming. It culminates in a section called “The Answer” where more than 10 representatives of Capcom and Inti Creates take turns answering over 50 of the fans’ Rockman-related questions gathered from Rockman Unity. I thought it would be fun (well, easier for me) to translate a few of the questions and answers every so often.

This first group I like to call “Capcom can’t help ya.” These questions share a common theme: their answers are bound to disappoint. But I suppose we can’t expect Capcom to have an answer for everything, now can we? Some of our burning questions just don’t have gratifying solutions.

Today we’ll take a look at one question from the classic Rockman section, two from the Rockman X section, and one from the Rockman EXE section.

Rockman Series Question 2

Q02: Is there any original artwork for the boss characters from the Wonderswan version of Rockman & Forte?

CAPCOM: Because that game is a product of a separate company, no artwork was done for that inside Capcom. Therefore, unfortunately, we don’t have any illustratons, drafts, or concept artwork for that game.

Rockman X Questions 4 & 5

Q04: Is there any background information on the creator of Dynamo?

CAPCOM: Sorry, that’s currently unknown.

Q05: Who the heck built VAVA?

CAPCOM: Just like with Dynamo, that’s currently unknown.

Rockman EXE Question 11

Q11: There’s art for anime characters like Hikawa Tohru and C. F. Rockman, so were there ever plans for them to appear in any of the games?

CAPCOM: Nope. Hikawa-kun’s artwork was drawn for just for hobby use, and the Cross Fusion Rockman art was made especially for the movie.

That’s all for today. Don’t worry, this Q&A stuff will get much juicier later on.

    Thanks, can wait for more Q&A. Funny they don’t know who created Vile, one has to assume that they thought about it working in IHX.

    Please don’t tell me that most of the answers boil down to “we don’t have that” or “we don’t know”…

      Yeah, this looks kind of ominous.

    Curious. So the RFWS artwork published in that one Japanese magazine isn’t official?

    As always, your initiative is much appreciated, #20. I look forward to the juicy bits you mentioned.

      Sounds like it may be official, but not by Capcom.
