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.
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.
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.
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.
