Kirby and Mega Man Nendoroids Are Tough to Resist, and Can Now be Pre-Ordered

Not cute with your bank balance

It's hard not to love Nendoroids. They're the equivalent of a cuddly husky puppy, all fluffy fur and cheeky dog grins; cute little video game figurines with interchangeable items and outfits? Where do we sign up! The downside is that they can be relatively pricey. Earlier this Summer Mega Man and Kirby Nendoroids...

You Can Turn Boss Weapons Against Their Owners In Mega Man Legacy Collection's Challenge Mode

Give them a taste of their own medicine

Mega Man Legacy Collection will contain plenty of goodies, and one of the most appealing is the challenge mode which features speed runs, remixes and a boss rush element. That's right, you can fight the characters who are arguably the stars of each title, and even use their own weapons against them -...

The Man Behind Busking Mario Is Now Racing Trains As Mega Man

Off the rails

Emlyn Lewis is an award-winning Irish filmmaker who just happens to have a deep love of retro gaming - Nintendo specfically. He's famous for busking in the guise of Super Mario and playing notable tunes from the series on his keyboard, but recently he's branched out into another beloved NES franchise: Capcom's Mega Man. Mega Man vs...

Mega Man And Mighty No. 9 Creator Keiji Inafune Admits He Doesn't Make Games That He Can Play

"My staff, though, are really good"

Keiji Inafune is responsible for some of the most joypad-crushingly difficult games of the 8-bit era, with the Mega Man series being considered the ultimate test of skill by many Nintendo players. However, Inafune has admitted to Kotaku UK that he is in fact a mere mortal and doesn't create games which he himself...

Mega Man Legacy Collection Blasting Onto the 3DS in Early 2016

That's still technically 'Winter'

Mega Man Legacy Collection arrives soon on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, and Capcom has now given a little clarity to its 'Winter' release window for the 3DS version. It'll arrive on the portable in early 2016 - as a download and a physical retail title - so we can take this off our potential Holiday 2015 line-up...

Awesome New Nendoroids are Unveiled at Wonder Festival 2015

Kirby, Marth, Mega Man and an all new Link

Summer Wonder Festival 2015 is currently taking place in Chiba, Japan - showcasing the many up and coming toys, figures and models that will leave our wallets looking a little desolate, and boy are there plenty of Nintendo figures on the way that will do just that. We can't get enough of Nendoroids, and...

News: Pre-Orders Open for Capcom's Official Wearable Mega Man Replica Helmet

Pre-Orders Open for Capcom's Official Wearable Mega Man Replica Helmet

Yours for just (!) $150 + postage

Capcom is a company that knows how to produce merchandise of varying standards, from awful tat to desirable but expensive collectables. We're not sure where this wearable Mega Man replica helmet comes in with those definitions, to be honest - the 'replica' reference in the product description is also amusing, as how...

Prepare yourselves, Rockman fans

Have you ever gone to an expo, fancy dress party or your local Mega Man Appreciation Club and thought "hm, I wish I could look more like Mega Man"?

Review: Mega Man Battle Network 4 Red Sun & Blue Moon (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

Mega Man Battle Network 4 Red Sun & Blue Moon (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

Nothin' but net

In every long running game series, there's always "that" one game which greatly splits the fanbase. Usually due to a major overhaul of an aspect that flies in the face of series tradition, these black sheep games typically are wrongfully seen as a bad or disappointing release simply because they did something different. Mega Man...

There's A New Producer In Charge Of All Things Mega Man At Capcom

Keep those expectations in check, people

Boy, Capcom really doesn't seem to have a clue what to do with Mega Man right now. The Blue Bomber's 25th birthday came and went with whimper, and the biggest news relating to the character in recent memory is that he'll be starring in a TV series - but not until 2017, when he celebrates 30 years in the...

New Mega Man TV Series Blasting Its Way to Screens in... 2017

Epic trolling, Capcom

2017 is the 30th Anniversary of the Mega Man franchise. Now, admittedly, the 25th Anniversary was a tad rubbish for those of us that like to play games - Capcom released figurines, USB sticks and tissue dispensers, but the only game we got was a free fan-game on PC. Oh, Capcom... Will 2017 finally bring the series back? We can...

Review: Mega Man Zero 4 (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

Mega Man Zero 4 (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

The battle for Neo Arcadia

After three enjoyable Mega Man Zero entries, Capcom just had to sneak in one more. Released extremely late into the Game Boy Advance's life - after the Nintendo DS had already been released, in fact - Mega Man Zero 4 is the final game in the series and mostly follows along with the previous three titles. Once again...

Mega Man & Bass (Wii U eShop / GBA)

Here comes the bass

A brief bit of history on Mega Man & Bass. A few years after Mega Man 8 notoriously became a Playstation and Sega Saturn game, Keiji Inafune - the series' creator - felt that he still owed one more game to children that had not yet upgraded to next gen hardware and still owned only the Super Famicom. Technically a spin-off...

Mega Man & Bass Kickstarts "Mega May" On Wii U Virtual Console

Dr.Wily's least favourite time of year

Last month, Capcom announced that their "Mega May" event was back in full force for 2015, focused on bringing classic GBA Mega Man titles to the Wii U Virtual Console. Now that the month is here and we're already panicking about how fast time is slipping by, these weekly releases have launched into action, with...

Review: Mega Man Zero 3 (Wii U eShop / GBA)

Mega Man Zero 3 (Wii U eShop / GBA)

(Mostly) Zero changes

After releasing the previous two Mega Man Zero titles and having them almost universally liked, it would've been crazy to end the series there; so, naturally, Capcom produced Mega Man Zero 3 for the Game Boy Advance. Just as before, the game follows the events of the previous instalments pretty directly. Picking up two months...
