Mega Man Returns With A Social Game For iOS

rockmanx1Before news about a new Mega Man game makes anyone jump out of their seat, Rockman Xover (which will probably be called Mega Man Xover if it comes out overseas) is a social RPG.

 

Mega Man Xover melds the entire history of Mega Man together into one iOS game. Dr. Wily, Sigma, and all of Mega Man’s villains broke through the space time barrier. To fight evil, Dr. Light and Dr. Cossack (!) teamed up to create a new kind of robot, a robot that uses “battle memory” scattered around the world. This model has unlimited potential to increase its power. The concept of Mega Man Xover is making your own Mega Man and battle evil robots with your friends.

 

Mega Man Xover is designed for casual gamers, so I guess there won’t be Quickman level traps. Players can customize their character and communicate with other players. Well, on the plus side Capcom didn’t totally abandon Mega Man.

 

Capcom will release Mega Man Xover this fall. The game is compatible with iPod Touch (generation 3 and up), iPhone (3GS/4/4S), and iPad.
