If you're a fan of Minecraft and/or Mega Man Legends, this is to you. You may recall "Blockman DASH," the custom Minecraft theme that gives the building adventure game a Legends-y makeover. User MegaManTrigger has taken over the project, and is looking for people to help continue the work. Trigger is particularly in need of someone who can extract sound effects from the original Mega Man Legends games. He'd also like to get textures from the games as well. If this is something you're capable of, head over to his thread and enlist. I'm sure he and other Minecraft players will be very appreciative!
The first PlayStation 3 theme for Mega Man 10 features a number of the game's characters in a foot-race (barring Nitro Man's use of his natural attributes) to determine superiority, while the second shows the Blue Bomber practicing his Vanish Block-climbing skills. Now, a third has been revealed, featuring Mega Man and his robo-bro Proto Man taking to their respective jet sleds to hunt down selected images among the many displayed on the monitor in Dr. Light's lab. Can you find the picture before they do?
This theme is only available in Japan so far, but when it is released in North America, expect to pay about $2.99 for it.

4gamer has some cool news about some Rockman related items. First off, a new Rockman 10 PS3 theme is coming out. This one features Mega Man and the gang striving to jump higher and higher into the sky via boon blocks. It also features the Robot Masters in the section tabs. I imagine we'll be catching word of a North American release of this theme pretty soon. The theme is selling in Japan for ¥200. A video demonstration is below.
Next up, 4gamer is showing off some high quality, individual pics of the "Super Model Spirit" Rockman trading figures, set to release in May. Also show is an E-Tank strap, which will randomly be included in the individually packed figures. No word on its inclusion in the box sets, though it likely will be. Check our gallery below for the highly detailed figures. [gallery]
I'm sure some of you know this now with Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars being out and all, but Roll's longtime theme song, "Kaze yo Tsutaete" (roughly "Bequeath the Wind") has been translated and localized for this title. Originally written for the 1997 game Mega Man Battle & Chase, the song has also been featured in games such as Marvel vs. Capcom and Rockman Complete Works. Furthermore, an 8-bit edition by Chibitech was the leading track of last year's Chiptuned Rockman album from Inti Creates. While I have not yet jumped on the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom beat down bandwagon, and don't know many details about the new arrangement, staff Splashman kindly provided me with the track. You can have a listen yourself. Roll's Theme in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars (English)
It's a pretty good rendition all in all. However I have to admit that the singer they chose makes the song sound even closer to Taylor Dayne's "Tell It To My Heart".
