Mega Man games invade bookstores

Mega Man at Borders? Sort of. In Japan Capcom is selling Mega Man books (with actual ISBN numbers!) with a game guide and a PS1 version of the NES game in one package. The price of admission is 2,730 yen ($23) per book and two are scheduled to come out on March 28, 2007. A clever idea to cash in on Mega Man’s 20th Anniversary, but wouldn’t it be better if Capcom just released Mega Man Anniversary Collection over there?

    but wouldn’t it be better if Capcom just released Mega Man Anniversary Collection over there?

    Rockman is a cash cow in Japan and Japanese are willing to pay over and over for the same thing, so that is why Capcom Japan is not in a hurry to make a compilation. Wish they would, I didn’t want to buy the American versions, but I would pay top dollar for Japanese versions of Rockman and Rockman X collection.

    Actually……they sorta already did release MMAC in Japan.
    Much of Mega Man Anninversary collection’s content is largely lifted straight out of the six-disc Rockman Complete Works series that was released ages ago on the PSX.
