    It might not be the mainline revival that fans have been hoping for, but Capcom has just announced Mega Man, or rather, Rockman X DiVE. Revealed by Capcom Taiwan for release in Japan on iOS and Android, this is a new mobile game featuring characters from the Mega Man X series. The teaser trailer doesn't actually show much, giving only the barest of glimpses at actual gameplay, but one thing we do know, is that DiVE has been confirmed to be an action-RPG. Both X and Zero are seen as being playable, while Axl and a host of other characters are shown at the end of the trailer in key art. Mega Man X DiVE will launch sometime before the end of this year.

    well that was.....rather unexpected! Can't wait to have a more clear trailer to see how it plays. Cautiously excited.

    I'm cautiously cautious. I do tend to agree with the "stop milking MMX" thing, though. X5 was supposed to be the last one, and it's clear the Zero series would have been a lot better if they had let the X series die. The same problem with Star Wars, really. Other games (the original MM series) weren't as plot heavy on the American side (not sure about Japan) and could really go on forever as long as there's enough diversity in game play and they don't push too many games over too short a time span.

    Having said all that, if MMX Dive ends up being good, then so be it. It's just a shame that another, equally valid, part of the rest of the MM timeline wasn't chosen. I mean between ZX and Legends is supposed to be a ridiculous amount of time, so it's not like they'd have to worry much about plot continuity and they could introduce a whole other set of original characters.

    I unironically enjoyed X8. imo it's unique and definitely stands out - but it is far from being a shitty game. x6 and x7, on the other hand....
    Wish they went with the canon and made new ZX game...

    I think the problem with X6 was a shitty translation, I had fun with that game. X7 is inexcusable, I'll give you that, which is sad because it only serves to give axl a bad introduction. X8 was really good though.

    Meh... I prefer the GBA-era Zero (style wise).

    Then again. At least Capcom is trying some kind of revival... let's see what'll happen.

    I think he means cameos in other genre games like project X zone and MVC.

    Mobile? I'll pass.

    I get that it's a good thing for reaching more people. But who do you want to reach? Is Mega Man a series that many mobile people will play? I doubt it.
