Mega Man as Nonfiction
Wherein I review a certain recent piece of Mega Man literature.
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 […]

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.

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 […]
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.

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Retromags post, so today for your viewing pleasure let’s all gawk at old gaming mag pages from some recently archived Electronic Gaming Monthly issues.
