This isn’t the Rockman’s first mobile jump. Capcom has released Mega Man 1 – 6 for the Android at the low-low price of $1.99. This is however Mega Man’s first appearance exclusively built for mobile platforms. The upcoming title will feature CO-OP, PVP, 3V3 and Boss Challenge Mode. In addition the multiple-modes and upgraded engine, the real icing on the cake is the multi-player/co-op feature.
Yes! You Can Now Play Mega Man with Friends and Family across the world. Epic.
Rockman X DiVE is a side-scrolling, action-platformer for the Android and iOS. The game was built with the same engine used for “Mega Man Maverick Hunter X,” a PSP port for the “Mega Man X series.” The X series began as a spin-off to the original Mega Man series. The Mega Man X series saw success on several mobile-gaming platforms like the Nintendo 3DS and PSP. It was only natural for Mega Man to land on our phones. Now it’s just a waiting game…
