Kotobukiya releasing Mega Man X Rising Fire Version model kit

So hot!

Kotobukiya is continuing their line of Mega Man X model kits with a Mega Man X Rising Fire Ver. This 1/12th scale figure is the fourth in the series, and the design is inspired by Mega Man X4. The kit will include special effect parts to create a fiery Ryuenjin, which is a skill you learn after defeating Magma Dragoon. There's no release date for this model kit at this time.

One-Punch Man artist shares a Mega Man tribute

One-Buster Man

Manga artist Yusuke Murata is well-known as the artist behind One-Punch Man's manga adaptation. His work with that series has spread the world over, but today he's sharing something a bit different. It looks like Murata is quite the fan of Mega Man, as he shared his take on the character in the sketch seen above. There's definitely a little bit of One-Punch Man style at play here, making for a Mega Man that looks particularly bad-ass.

The Mega Man Special Band performs Dr. Wily Stage 1 from Mega Man 2 to promote stay-at-home efforts

A Mega tribute!

Not that long ago, Capcom was putting on Mega Man concerts in Japan to celebrate the series' music. While those concerts have been put on hold due to the pandemic, Capcom is more than happy to work on a special performance from home.

The Mega Man Special Band gathered virtually to record a special version of the Dr. Wily Stage 1 theme from Mega Man 2, which you can see above. The band put this together in order to entertain those who are staying at home to help flatten the curve of the pandemic.

Jeremy Parish takes a look back at Mega Man Legends

I've been taking a different approach to video production while we're all hunkered down for the pandemic. Some people cope with booze or by binge-watching; I cope by making videos about games I love. Case in point: Mega Man Legends for PlayStation, which is well outside the scope of Video Works... but I'm let it kite along in the slipstream of the recent NES Mega Man retrospective. It's an incredible game—a personal favorite. So, please: Just roll with it.

Mega Man & Bass fan-made demake in the works

Mega Man goes 8-bit again!

Mega Man & Bass originally saw release on the Super Nintendo, and then made its way to the Game Boy Advance. Now the game will live again, thanks to fan efforts. This time around, it's going to get a demake, rather than a remake!

A Mega Man & Bass Famicom/NES demake is currently underway, and you can check out the game's progress in the trailer above. There's still lots of work to do, and the team is looking to bring in new people. If you think you can help out, reach out to the team and let them know!

Jeremy Parish's NES Works #70 - Mega Man

But let's be real. Mega Man is much cooler than Trojan. There's a reason one series had dozens of sequels and spinoffs and the other... didn't. Capcom's first wholly original creation for NES is one of the most inventive and highly polished games on NES to date, period. With a free stage select sequence, alternate special weapons, and imaginative bosses, Mega Man stands out as a brilliant capper to an incredible year for the NES. And just think: The franchise will only get better from here, as we'll see in NES Works 1989. In, uh, a few years.
