You Asked For It

As my holiday gift to you, I’m going to finally address some of the talking points on the Ask page.

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). They also discuss some of the inspiration behind the Daily […]

Weird Science

Several new sample pages from the Rockman Classics Collection Limited Edition pocket planner went up on e-Capcom today. Quick facts for the book: Dimensional size A6, 464 pages total mini calendar for 2016 and 2017 (1 page each) monthly planner section for February 2016 to April 2017 (2 pages per month) daily diary/notes (2 days […]

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!

Pile Up Pipe Dreams

Hey, here’s a thing.

25 Years, Still Uncharted

Here’s something I’d been searching for for quite a while. This page from Japanese gaming magazine Marukatsu Famicom‘s coverage of Rockman 3 sheds a little more light on something I have long been musing about regarding Rockman published art. Translation and analysis beyond.

His unconventional construction has been one of designer Keiji Inafune’s personal favorites (which you can read about in Mega Man Official Complete Works […]
