Thanks to Capcom you won’t have to sneak into Storm Eagle’s stage to upgrade your headgear. Its upcoming life-size Mega Man helmet is made of ABS plastic, has light up parts and has a “unique clamshell hinge” that lets the front and back halves split open to make the helmet easier to wear.
The helmet will be available for a limited time from Capcom’s online store.
For some reason Capcom still doesn’t seem to know what to do with Mega Man, except release cool merch based on the series’ past hits, like these hand towels. One has an awesome pattern featuring Rock’s 8-bit form in various poses – please make a t-shirt version of this!
It’s becoming increasingly cheaper to make your own arcade machine, but if you’d rather leave it to the pros check out Dream Arcades’ latest offering, the Vision 32. The machine gets its name from its 32″ LCD display.
There’s a new Mega Man game! It’s a, uh, *cough* a board game. Wipe your tears, Blue Bomber faithful, board games can be a lot of fun! Plus Jasco Games’ officially licensed game will let you play not just as Rock, but as a Robot Master too!

It has lots of references to the blue bomber, but its main trick is its left sleeve, which when rolled up reveals a textile replica of Mega Man’s staple weapon.
I think we’ve seen almost every version of Monopoly possible. There’s Star Trek Monopoly, Nintendo Monopoly, Star Wars Monopoly, Futurama Monopoly and now it looks like there’s a Street Fighter version coming from Capcom and USAopoly.
Resident Evil fans have been waiting for the launch of the upcoming Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City game and now a new trailer has been released to show you more details of the gameplay. Spoiler alert!
Last month Capcom announced Resident Evil 6 and that it will hit the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on November 20, 2012. That’s a long way off, but at least we are getting some news about the game in the meantime.
Do you like Marvel? Capcom? Like to see those characters fight each other? Of course you do, and now US gamers can deliver the best possible smackdown via Hori’s Fight Stick for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, as the game controller is now available in the US market.
Are you the type of gamer who enjoys playing retro games, especially the ones that you loved when you were younger? Well check out Mega Man X, which was just released for the iPhone and iPod Touch (sorry no iPad version yet.)
As far as old school fighting games go, you can’t do much better than Street Fighter II. Well, we have some good news for iPhone users who love that classic game. Capcom Mobile has released both Final Fight and the Street Fighter II Collection for iDevices.
Despite its huge roster, damage that racks up to millions and the inclusion of Deadpool, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 still has standards. There are levels of absurdity that they would never descend, like including joke characters.
In case you didn’t hear it this week, the Guitar Hero franchise is no longer. In tribute to their fallen gaming comrades, the guys over at Capcom decided to pay tribute to the game with a little game of their own – Marvel vs.
