Celebrating the game's 20th anniversary in style.Read More
December 17th, 2014 marks the 27th anniversary of Rockman, and Capcom seems to have some big plans in store... well, Capcom of Japan, anyway (time will tell if Capcom USA or Europe follows suit).Read More
Following the release of Rockman X4 X Ver. last month for Docomo and au phones, Capcom of Japan today has released the version with Zero as a playable character. The game boasts the same high fidelity graphics and sound matching the original PSX game, with minor tweaks for convenience (such as making Jet Singray's ride chaser stage a little slower, I've heard).
Furthermore, Capcom also plans to release Rockman Solitaire for mobile phones starting February 1st. This simplistic solitaire games allows you to compete for best time. Like Rockman Sprite Logic, it will be a Flash game playable over Capcom's mobile service, and has no additional fee. For a simple game, the logo is still pretty snazzy.

Heat Man just passed along to us an item of interest off of the Japanese Rockman Unity blog. There, it is revealed that the popular debut* of the Rockman X series on the Sony PlayStation and SEGA Saturn, Rockman X4, will be coming to the Docomo and AU cell phone services in Japan. IF you happen to be in Japan, then you can expect to see it on December 1st.
Well, half of it, anyway; the game is split into two parts, with X playing Santa by arriving before Christmas. Those interested in the other half of the game will be able to ring in the New Year with Zero on January 1st.
Heat Man adds that "the visual and sound quality is boasted to match that of the original game, making it one of Capcom's highest quality cell phone games yet." If you would like to see some screens from this version of the game, just click here.
* Unless we were to count the port of Rockman X3, of course.
