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...

You'll Have the Chance to Own an Official Wearable Mega Man Helmet

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"? Well, don't worry, Capcom's here to make that dream come true with one of its better merchandise ideas. In a Capcom Unity blog post outlining exhibit plans for the...

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...

Review: Mega Man & Bass (Wii U eShop / GBA)

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...

Mega Man: The Board Game Gets Closer to Reality

Finalising content with Capcom

We've covered Mega Man: The Board Game a fair amount, from its origins on Kickstarter to tentative updates as Jasco Games has worked towards making the final product a reality. As a relatively complicated game with plenty of text and miniatures to produce, it's clearly been a challenging project. A major part of that...

Review: Mega Man Battle Network 2 (Wii U eShop / GBA)

Mega Man Battle Network 2 (Wii U eShop / GBA)

Casting a wider net

The world as portrayed in the Mega Man Battle Network series is so ridiculous and yet so outlandishly awesome that it's hard not to adore. In our boring reality, if your toaster doesn't work it means you're pretty much out of luck. In the Battle Network world, it more likely means you need to upload your virtual companion into...

Review: Mega Man Zero 2 (Wii U eShop / GBA)

Mega Man Zero 2 (Wii U eShop / GBA)

Zero times two

Just one year after Mega Man Zero, Inti Creates released a sequel for the Game Boy Advance spin-off. That might sound a bit quick, but Mega Man Zero 2 is no mindless cash-in. It took the sturdy foundation set by its predecessor and built upon it in impressive ways, while also smoothing out the rough edges. On top of that it wove an...

Some Toon Link orders also affected

The next wave of Super Smash Bros. amiibo is due to roll out in the coming weeks in North America, with figures such as King Dedede, Sonic, Ike, Sheik and more on the way. It seems that pre-order stock issues are emerging once again, however, with a number of Amazon customers receiving notifications that orders...

Super Bowl XLIX Analysis of 'Mega-Beast Mode' Recreates Marshawn Lynch as Mega Man

Running Man

Super Bowl XLIX is everywhere right now, as the US and a global audience ramps up for the showdown between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots. Improbably muscle-bound men wearing lots of gear will pummel each other over the course of many hours, and hundreds of millions will watch. There's a lot of coverage for the match, and...
