imageNeowiz and Capcom officially announced Rockman Online, an online Mega Man game for PCs. A 3D side-scrolling action RPG for PCs. Being an online RPG, Rockman Online will have a perpetual growth system and varied stages to play. Capcom wants to make this game appeal to Mega Man series fans as well as general audience.


X and Zero are confirmed to be in the game along with a bunch of original characters as NPCs. Here’s art for both of them.

Rockman Online has not been announced for any other region. However, Capcom trademarked Mega Man Universe in North America and Europe. Could that be this game’s international name?

  • Cool but so wish it was on like console instead of PC

    • cmurph666

      Needs moar console~!

  • Not sure if want… But totally willing to try!

  • nyoron

    Online RPGs aren’t my thing but the fact that this features X and Zero makes me happy. How about Mega Man X9 already?

    • epy

      This. It always puzzles me why companies go off on a tangent with their franchises all the time instead of giving fans what they actually want.

      • They LITERALLY did exactly that last month with MM10. Literally. Also, there’s the Zero collection coming out. Not to mention the non-blue bomber IPs getting sweet capcom love. Lookin at you Capcom VS. series.

        • I don’t really think anyone wanted MM10, I’m pretty sure everyone’s been asking for X9 and ZX3

      • Ditto to Alfredo. Just because you don’t want it doesn’t mean other people aren’t interested. Companies have to keep trying new things to get money from new consumers as well as their current consumers. It’s all about the money. This game sounds like a fun idea too and I don’t even like Mega Man. (I’m still angry that he can’t duck like every other video game character.)

    Finally it is announced! I’ve been really eager to hear news on this…It sounds wonderful to me. Capcom has learned there lesson when it comes to Mega Man so I believe this will be a huge success! Hopefully, a console version will be a time release or something.

    Also… Wonder why it’s not called “Mega Man X Online” since everything seems to be from the X series?

    Ghouls & Ghosts Online according to my memory was Capcom earlier attempt at MMOs but was later canned(see link below).
    I’m not really into MMOs but Ghouls & Ghosts Online would’ve made me interested…
    Lets see how this goes…..

  • BrotherCavil

    :< We already have a side-scroller action MMO, and most likely lightyears ahead of this thing…

    *goes back to Dungeon Fighter Online*

  • Kris

    I love the X universe, but Inafune wanted it to end after X5… That said, a maverick-hunting action RPG would be awesome.

  • Code

    rar, this is very relevant to my interests, I’m not a big MMO player, I’ve never been crazy on monthly pay plans. But if this is a platformer/action/RPG Mega Man Online game, there’s not way I’m not checking that out, day one Capcom >w<~!

    Also seriously is it just me or has Capcom really been on there A game the last few years, seriously good work.
