Rockman’s Find the 41 Falsifications Challenge

This year Rockman Unity’s April Fools celebration put up a spot-the-differences activity using the Rockman Character Collection cover art. They said there are 41 changes (for 4/1 of course) between the two images. They challenge you to see how many you can spot in 10 minutes. Ucchy says his record was 35, so see if […]

Street Fighter x Dr. Right

Nearing the physical release of Mega Man Legacy Collection and its Japanese counterpart Rockman Classics Collection now, and Rockman Unity’s Ucchy and Rockman Producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya have given a thorough preview of the e-Capcom Special Limited Edition box set (which has long since sold out).

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 […]

Dee Jay may be available to dance on a robot cat at your next party.

Gaze upon the cover for Capcom Magazine ’94: Mega Man, Rush and Tango hang out with chibi versions of the four New Challengers from Super Street Fighter II. Somehow this little piece didn’t make it into R20 or SF20 art books, though I enjoy it quite a bit–especially the part with Tango and Fei Long […]

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 […]

Heavenly Idols

Today’s pic comes from the Rockman DASH 3: The Prologue (8-bit ver.) Original Soundtrack. Hideki Ishikawa was brought on as a freelance artist to design this image for the insert. In case you didn’t know there happens to be a contest where you can win your own physical copy of the soundtrack going on right […]

A Day For Sigma

Last Saturday was the Day of Sigma (Japanese version), and once again I kind of forgot all about it. Oh well! I’m sure Sigma isn’t losing any sleep over it. He doesn’t care if some puny meatbag humans don’t remember what day it’s on… ….Um. I mean, he’d probably prefer we all go eat some […]

Meet the Casketts!

While I’m caught up in the spirit of Legends, let’s look at some more of 2011’s projects I got too sad and grump to carry on with back then. Presenting pages 24 and 25 of the Rockman Dash Daibouken Guide! Full pages and translation ahead!
