Among a of newly announced iOS and Android titles, Capcom introduced Street Fighter X All Capcom, set to launch November 13th of this year. The game is a "hero training RPG" which is played with card battles. Since, when you think of Street Fighter, you think of card battles. As seen in the artwork and screens from the game's official homepage, we can so far expect characters hailing from Mega Man, Mega Man X and Mega Man Legends. The game boasts over 500 characters from a number of beloved Capcom series. As cards. To be honest, this game actually looks a lot like Minna to Capcom All Stars, a mobile card battle RPG whose service ended earlier this year. All Stars was also touted as a hero training RPG. Some of the artwork even appears to be exactly the same (compare Okami's Amaterasu). All Stars was originally a collaboration with GREE.

Allegedly, the version released is quite a bit behind the updates that the Japanese version currently has. Furthermore, the game requires an account registration to play, whereas in Japan Xover can use services like Facebook and Twitter to log in. It is also region locked, and you cannot add Japanese players to your friends list.
Originally, Capcom of America intended to release Xover in the west as well, but those plans were indefinitely put on hold; probably due to the poor reaction the game received. Nevertheless, there are those who want to play it, and the Korean release could be a sign that it's on its way.

Following the previous boss character contest for iOS/Android app Rockman Xover, Capcom is rolling out another. This time, however, the theme is players' home regions. In fact, Capcom wants entries that somehow represent each of the 47 prefectures of Japan. Taking that into consideration, I'm supposing this is a Japan only contest.
This time the chosen boss characters won't be made into actual bosses. But 11 grand prize winners will have their characters made into Battle Memory cards. They will also receive a special Battle Memory only available to contest winners, and an E Tank water bottle. Of those 11, four will be used as special giveaways for media outlets like Famitsu and Dengeki. An additional 47 runners-up will win that special Battle Memory.
Like the last contest, this one will be maintained by uploading works to Nico Nico Seiga. The deadline is September 2nd, with the winning entries planned to start appearing in the game in early October. So if you live in Japan anyway, good luck to you!

People have had both good and bad things to say about Rockman Xover... let's be honest; mostly bad. But one thing people have consistently seemed to approve of is OVER-1's design and various armors. Perhaps making use of this notion, Famitsu is showing off high res artwork of all the OVER forms to appear so far, 1 through 8 (though minus the special R form). Which form is your favorite?
Additionally, Famitsu is also announcing that the special edition card of There, one of the boss contest winners, will be available with the latest issue of Famitsu APP. The card can be redeemed between now and August 5th.
Incidentally, when talking about OVER-1 in general... I never know if that means the character himself, or just his first form. Is he just OVER? I don't really understand...

[gallery columns="2" ids="21956,21957"] Not content with simply being a crossover of all the Mega Man series, the latest weekly Famitsu reveals that Rockman Xover will be stretching out its already strange universe with Bandai Namco's iOS mobile game Seven Thousand Wars - Season 2. In accordance, characters from the fantasy RPG will appear in Xover as special Battle Memory cards you can get in lottery. Meanwhile in Seven, players can get futuristic Rockman themed equipment, as well as five SP cards featuring the forms of OVER-1 with medieval weaponry and looking really dirty.
The Battle Memory cards will start running in Xover near the end of June, whereas Seven's Xover content is seemingly available now until the end of May.
