Capcom of Japan has revealed their 2010-2011 plan and make mention of a new Rockman game in the works… in Asia.
Dubbed “Rockman Online” (“Mega Man Online” in the English version of their Investor Relations report) and to be developed with Neowiz Games Corporation of Korea, could this be the true nature of the recently discovered Mega Man Universe trademark? NeoWiz Games is known for its work on other online titles such as A.V.A., Duel Gate, Battlefield Online, Crossfire, Warlord, and the like. The game is expected to be out by March of 2011, following with Capcom’s business strategy for the upcoming fiscal year.
Little other information exists, but speculation abounds of a Mega Man PC massively multiplayer online title, considering the popularity of the genre in Asian regions. Currently, Capcom’s only foray into online gaming has been Monster Hunter Frontier Online.
