Higurashi Brings the Classics Back

As I and the rest of the internet have been falling in love with Ryuji Higurashi’s comics-inspired, nostalgia-inducing Rockman Classics Collection cover art, I was reminded of another piece of his that appeared in one of Capcom’s official artbooks early this year. Higurashi was already a huge fan of Rockman even before starting at Capcom […]

It was Tuesday

“What the… 5,000 yen for a pocket planner? SERIOUSLY, Capcom? Who would spend that much on something like that?! What are they thinking–” ‡“Along with the daily planner pages, we’ve also included a Research Journal with pages of notes detailing the experiments of Rockman’s father, Dr. Right — published here for the first time ever!

Legacy Collection: A “Short” Review

Mega Man Legacy Collection was crafted with one purpose in mind — to collect the six NES Mega Man games and present them as close as they originally appeared and played as possible. To that end, all the bugs, zips, graphical glitches and hard-coded slowdown are all included, as well as screen size options and […]

Welcome, Capcom-ites!

During the early PS2 era, Capcom would have a bi-weekly (or so) one-page feature in Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu Playstation with this header image. Sometimes the background color would change, but the picture would remain the same. The art features famous faces from many late ’90s Capcom franchises, including many characters from the Rockman series […]

Just a thought.

They want to make a special kind of game. There’s 5 more days to help.
