    Allan "Nicol" Montenegro of Taizen Saint Seiya, has attempted to translate the blurred text from the mysterious Nintendo Dream announcement:

    Top text: "Burning/hot/ardent battle"

    Lower Text: "The newest series! At long last the work..."

    Could this be implying a brand new Rockman series to take its debut? But what does it mean by "at long last the work"? Maybe it was in development for a while. Or maybe they are remaking a previous series? Only time will tell. What are your thoughts?

    NEWS SOURCE: The Mega Man Network

    Updates 2: Some more information has been translated for the new game or should I say, possible re-release of games. According from the translation, it may be a re-release of some of the older games! (Dare I say Dash on the DS?).
    What could all this mean?!

    I wouldn't exactly mind a new series, as long it's Megaman style. I'm tired of these Battle Network games thats still coming out.

    I can only hope they remake some X series for DS, Batlle Network and StarForce are sooo lame, ZX is decent, but X series is better (except Command Mission)

    Maybe it's something about Megaman Scramble Battle or whatever it's called that Capcom wanted to do? a Megaman fighter IIRC
    and if it's a new series, I won't care, I would love another MM series, as long as it's a platformer and I hope it will be Classicish\Xish

    I personally dont mind if they make another ZX game but they should get rid of the battle network/starforce franchise. That said, I will still probably play the 3rd starforce game.

    There are so many already that I don't see a problem in a new Mega Man series..

    The first games on new MM series are usually good.. they normally start to go downhill after 3 or 4 sequels [​IMG]

    IMO, the Battle Network series is not THAT bad. I mean, it could have been done without MegaMan, using generic characters, and it would have been the exact same... but meh, it's not that bad. It's not MegaMan X, of course. Gotta love how X looks in that picture ^^

    I really liked the Battle Network series. I liked the battle system. But I though the story was VERY cheesy. Of course, the same could be said of any Megaman game. And I'm on the fence about Starforce. It's kind of hit or miss for me about the gameplay.

    Since this is a Nintendo magazine, I guess this new series would be either Wii or DS. If I had to guess, I'm guessing the Wii since I don't believe it has a Megaman game (not including MM9 or WiiWare/VC).

    I love Battle Network actually. Brings new things to the table. Though I like the Zero and ZX just as much. I hate Star Force though. (Except for SF3, that one is a major improvement from SF1 and 2.)

    Why did Mega Man get a visor just recently? Hasn't there always been a need for a visor? Silly Mega Man

    I really like the visor in Starforce. It's really cool looking in my opinion. [​IMG]

    this is just going to be stupid if they star a new series like megaman starforce or battle network I want an original megaman to come to the nds.

    I loved battle network but the story started to tire out. Starforce fails hard though, I'd have been happy if they made a seventh and final installment of BN with a better story, gameplay of BN2 and 3, and lots of chips [​IMG] But I hope this new series is just a classic side scroller.

    ^ yeah im in the same boat as you i loved the BN series every single one of them even though they got a bit repetitive. Star Force is good but it doesnt have the same fell like feel that its way to easy i dont feel the need or reason to play it doesnt draw me in like BN did.
