Capcom Price Drops on iOS Titles
Following on the theme of holiday deals, Capcom has revealed some Thanksgiving sales for mobile devices. iOS is seeing Mega Man X and Devil May Cry 4 Refrain drop from $5 to a price of just $1. Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD is also on sale, dropping from $17 to $5.
I bought Mega Man X, despite hearing horrible reviews about its port over to the iOS, and Devil May Cry 4 Refrain isn’t too great either. Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD seems pretty on point though, according to numerous reliable sources. Definitely recommend Ace Attorney for those wanting a new franchise to dig into or just something to revisit.
Robot Masters Custom Light-Up NES
Console customizers Platinumfungi and Custom NES Guy whipped up this ballin’ backlit NES to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Mega Man. It features a sexy blue color scheme with Mega Man’s adorable 8-bit mug on the controllers and lid (and those blue buttons tho!), but the standout feature is the display of robot masters - and they light up!

Mega Man Stop-Motion Animation Done Completely With Glass Tiles
This amazing stop-motion video was created by YouTube user FinalCutKing, who used over 1,000 glass tiles and 10,000 photos to make this two-minute video. It’s a cool video and an amazing feat to put such time and effort into this project for the love of Mega Man and film making. Definitely holds charm.

Licensed Mega Man Board Game, Coming Soon
Mega Man The Board Game is currently being created by Jasco Games, with permission from Capcom. Totally cool idea, but it needs some help in terms of funding, so its turning to Kickstarter to help pitch in some cash.
They ultimately want to finish this base game and release expansions, but for now, the original game needs to be finish, and from what I’ve read, the original game sounds like a blast. Two to five players will use little Mega Man figurines and a customizable card deck to find Dr. Willy and kick his ass, while expansions hope to bring that player count all the way up to eight, along with adding more weaponry, levels, and characters further down the line.
No official date on when this Kickstarter will launch, other than the “coming soon,” message left on Jasco’s official Facebook page.

D-Arts’ Mega Man Ultimate Armor figure
D-Arts has some of the coolest toys ever created, and this one really showcases that to the fullest extent. Capcom revealed that this Mega Man X figure, equipped with ultimate armor, will come with swappable hands/mega buster, terrific articulation D-Arts is known for creating, and full fucking detail. Unfortunately, the company did not reveal how much this is going to cost and if it’s going to be sold outside of Japan.

Yes, Mega Man was on the Genesis
There’s been a Genesis-styled chiptune cover of some Mega Man music making the rounds on the Internet, which has been making people ask, “What if Mega Man was released on the Genesis?” Well, it was! Rockman: Mega World was released in late ‘94 for the Mega Drive in Japan and was released in ‘95 as Mega Man: The Wily Wars in Europe and Brazil.
The game was an upgraded compilation of the first three Mega Man games. It never received a physical release in the US, but was available on Sega Channel, the satellite service.
All versions of the game are collectible, going for at least $250. Don’t be fooled though. Any physical copy you see with Genesis branding is a reproduction and is worth about $40, not the three digit prices you’ll see on eBay.
