Dengeki Online posted some interesting Rockman news just a couple of hours ago, but unfortunately, it got removed pretty fast because of insecurity between them and Capcom of Japan. We at RPM managed to snag some screens though and it looks like the DASH series is heading to the Nintendo DS after all! Oh joy! Alright, brace yourselves for the screens.

Image

Here's the overall game play screen for the game. On the top we see our hero Rockman "Trigger" Volnutt face to face with two KnightMare Units guarding a gate. The Life Meter has gotten itself a boost too, as we can see that Rock begins with 7 of 14 MAX HP, as opposed to Rockman DASH: Hagane no Boukenshin's 5 of 10 MAX HP system. On the Touch Screen, we can see a Menu with functions such as Equipment for your Buster Parts, Options for game configuration, Map which will let you Zoom In and Out by pressing the Plus and Minus buttons next to the map screen, Item which most likely keeps recovery and other neat stuff and the basic Time and Zenny info in the corner.


Image
Image

Some more dungeon-based screens, where we see Data and a Treasure Chest on the first screen and some Reaverbot fighting action on the second screen. It's awesome!

Image

The last in-game screen is based on a town, and here we see not only the ordinary main cast from the DASH series, but we also see a new character called Meiru (who looks so much like the Meiru from the Rockman.EXE series). The dialog seems to say: "Rock? It's a cute name! Fufufu!" and it seems like Roll isn't too fond with that.

This game has been confirmed to release on December 17th 2007, the day where Rockman turns 20. This is a truly excellent way to celebrate his birthday. We promise to keep you informed with more info.

Yeah, it is a fool's day. :D

I'll repost it just to make sure that people understand don't get too excited: this game was obviously proven to be a hoax. RPM always do a very elaborate prank for April's Fools Day, to the point of creating a very nice looking game announcement. Last year, it was nothing short of Mega Man 9 for the Nintendo DS!

Besides, the DS is capable of so much more than that.

I would be kinda disappointed if it looked like that and was for the DS...

Really, what would you do with the second screen? Map? Inventory? Pssh...

It worked for several games before it, although I'm sure there are better uses for that second screen. It would take a fan of the series to see how it could really work within context... ohh, there's one idea. Since most diggers have a spotter to help them, how about having the second screen displaying relayed information for the spotter? It could involve treasure directions, potential dangers, or anything else like that.

I might have been bothered to play Legends were it on the DS. Since it's not...ah, well. Guess those crappy Resident Evil controls will never be fixed.

If it were made for the DS, Capcom probably would've redone the story.

Oh man, if only it were real..

It looks like some Legends/BoF hybrid...I would have bought it in an instant.

Haha, I wonder if Capcom ever gets mass mailed after pranks, asking when these games are coming out.

Of course, Capcom enjoys telling people that their games--and their entire lives, in fact--are just big fat lies.

... I have a really bad habit of using the wrong word.

Sure, I can spell fine, but noooo, I have to use the wrong stupid words to make it sound completely illogical... *grumbles*

It's fixed now.

Does anyone else think that legends could be reborn (or if not) just remade on the DS? At least the first one.

Well dang it... I started reading the post without even bothering to look at the stupid date...

Curses... you never expect to be April Fooled in October... -__-;


Nothing is foolproof to a truly talented fool.

Sorry, MegaMan, but it looks like you
might be stuck up there for a little while more... Actually... at this rate... you may NEVER come down!!! *sob*

And yet, considering that a cellphone game is now underway, who knows what the future holds? A new Legends game on the DS would definitely be in 3D, though: it's one of the marks of the series.

I'll edit the first post's description to add a mention about the joke...

Huh, a cell phone game of Megaman Legends? lol I wonder, you know in Japan there is a Cell phone game thats part 3D and 2D of dot hack the first 4 games, it goes online too so its basically a .hack//Fragment thing....*sigh* I wish Fragment came to the US ;~; Damn CC2 cancled it saying not enough players >.<


In memory of .hack//Chat I say one last time: "Let's meet again sometime, in that place we love to go. The Root town of Mac Anu!"
.... .hack//kyat....we miss you dearly

To be honest, I think the Dash series, could be put into the DS system. If not the PSP.

As for a new Dash game, hoping 2011 will shed a little light.

As for this prank, It's an O.K. one, but I would still like to see it made.
