Rockman Xover, A New Mobile Game for Apple iOS Products


Capcom unveiled their new Rockman Xover (pronounced as "crossover") game for the Apple iOS.



Some screenshots of the game:


Here's some quick facts about the new social RPG game based on the official website's info:

:bulletblue: Heroes and villains from many different series are expected to appear in the game.
:bulletblue: The game is described to be a social RPG to commemorate Rockman's 25th anniversary.
:bulletblue: The game will be playable in iOS 4.0 and above (iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPod Touch gen 3 and above).
:bulletblue: Expected Japan release date: Autumn 2012
:bulletblue: It's been confirmed that there will be a Western localization of the game.

The story behind the game is something like this:
"It’s a world where all the worlds of Rockman have crossed over. The gulf of space-time has been closed thanks to the efforts of Dr. Wily, Sigma and other villains to Rockman and co.! Dr Light and Dr. Cossack work together in creating a new robot to oppose this crisis. A production model, this robot uses “battle memory” that has been scattered over the world, and possesses infinite potential to transform and increase his power. The player battles evil as this new type robot. Create your own Rockman, and battle with others to protect peace!"
What do you guys think about this new game?

How much time did it take me to realize CoD4, MW3 and the ending of Mass Effect 3 are better than this monstrousity right here that Capcom just made?

When I saw this on ANN the other day, I could only remark with: "Crapbomb, you're still doing it wrong."

It probably isn't gonna happen BECAUSE CAPCOM KEEPS MAKING MEGAMAN GAMES.......AND THEN CANCELLING THEM..and if does come out then this s just capcom saying sorry and the game is probably gonna suck

kinda silly that people are judging a game's quality before it even being released yet. *shakes head* what has the gaming community been reduced too lately? whining and crying over a game before it releases...then the game ends up surprisingly good or bad and they either whine they were wrong or whine they were good.

Wait until the game is out, then judge it by playing it. pretty simple i'd say.

In any event it's nice to see capcom releasing some more megaman games, and koodoos to them for creating one for the iOS :D interesting idea anyway, it'll be neat to see how they play it out :)

Look at many people below me, still expecting too much from Capcom for Mega Man even after everything that happened. Can't you ppl start to be humble?

At least I have an iPad... Heh.

Well, I guess it's a start... We haven't had a Megaman game for a few years now, but still... I was so happy when I first found out about this a few days ago and then I read that it was a social game and my heart sank so low in my chest. Sigh, Capcom. I don't hate you, but you're making your fans very upset. Please stop.

I heard that gaming is going more for the portable side. That's why the new Wii-U thing is becoming that, and more games are being developed for phones. So I guess Capcom is taking the easy route and trying to step ahead by putting one of their biggest franchises ahead of everyone else on the.....iPhone. Of course, they weren't as smart to just....y'know....develop it for all smart-phones to make everyone happy....
I however don't know if I like the whole crossover thing or not though. The idea sounds awesome, but I'm slightly frightened if it's going to be really bad (also since it's a social RPG.)

Oh crap I recognize that engine. Retina graphics be hanged for their low frame count and missing features! I made the mistake of buying Megaman X for iOS, and boy what a shame. So many fan works set a good standard and Capcom can't even be bothered to match?

This doesn't look good, MM fans!

Pft,just another quick cash for Capcom to be honest. Mobile games are cheap and easy to make,so of course that's all they care about. I would care if it was maybe for a console or portable where they actually put some effort into it.

I like the concept,and it sounds similiar to Castlevania: HoD...but HoD had a lot going for it,and it pleased the fans greatly.

I can't believe you people. the very existence of this game is sole proof that Megaman is still alive and you dismiss it as stupid, disappointing, and just outcry *Y U NO X9 LEGUNDZ 3!!!!!11one* would you rather have the iOS or no Megaman at all?

It's not that. You should appreciate what you get for now. Capcom did say they were working on a secret Megaman project. In the meantime we have to make due with what we have. The iOS games may not be the stuff were waiting for, but its proof that capcom hasn't forgotten about the blue bomber.

I would i appreciate getting a bad game? I understand that this shows they haven't forgotten Mega Man, but i will not support a bad game because if people support bad games they will think they can just keep giving us bad games. If you really want to make due go play an old Mega Man game

Also when did they say they where working on a secret Mega man project? Can you provide a source?

I don't want to completely screw the idea--it sounds okay and the new guy looks pretty cool--but I really wish they'd wake up and give us Legends 3 after 10 years...
Hey, is it just me, or does New Guy look kind of like a mix between Axl and Gate...? Just a random thought. :iconidkplz:

Congrats, Megaman fans, we're apparently a "casual games" group now, as far as Capcom is concerned. :)


...The game may very well be fun, but, meh.

Honestly? When I got to know about this "thing", I didn't even know if I should feel disappointed, angry, or whatever. In the end, I simply let out a sigh of disaprooval, and kept on with what I was doing.

As for anyone willing to swallow crap like this: suit yourselves.

personally im alil upset that its only for the iOS

its like capcom dosent think megaman is worthy for home an handheld consoles that everyone owns anymore.

instead they put him on a platform that most people dont have and afford.

The real question though is why the iOS? More people are likely to have a Wii, a PS3, a DS, a PSP, or a 3DS than an iOS.

before making a comment like that, you should probably do some research on the ios. currently the most popular gaming platform of all time. :) [link] here's a link that explains it.

iOS is capcom's smartest move right now, any studio not hitting up the ios with games are losing potential great money, and to think more people own console's then phones is definitely the way of the past. :) As much as i love console gaming, you can't argue with numbers/facts that iOS is a huge market right now, and it was a great idea for capcom to try and get into it with a popular franchise like megaman :)
