Now, I've never heard of this Mega Man fellow. Frankly, I question what makes him so "mega". A quick Wikipedia search tells me that this so-called "man" is actually a little boy in a blue jumpsuit with a cannon for an arm.
He may or may not be some sort of robot. Whatever he is, he's got a new Nintendo DS (another thing I've never heard of) game coming out that comes in two flavors.
The game is Mega Man Star Force 2 and the two versions are titled Zerker X Saurian and Zerker X Ninja. I also have no idea what a Ninja is, but Saurian's are great people.
Here's a gallery, and the full press release, which details the game's features, can be found below.
Mega Man Star Force returns, delivering totally upgraded and cutting-edge online communication and device customization technologies through a portable RPG adventure that is brought to life in the iconic, action-driven Mega Man way! Mega Man Star Force 2 will be available in two versions, Zerker X Ninja and Zerker X Saurian with players able to choose between Zerker, Ninja, or Saurian depending on which version they choose.
Developed by the team behind the popular MegaMan Battle NetworkTM series, Mega Man Star ForceTM 2 continues two months after the previous game left off. Geo Stelar and crew return to battle a whole host of UMA's (unidentified animated beings) and a new rival character appears named "Rogue." Amidst this new conflict, a mysterious organization emerges with plans to revive the ancient civilization of "Mu" by utilizing the force of an ancient heritage "OOPArt." It's up to Geo and his virus-busting buddy, Omega-Xis, to thwart this latest threat.
Mega Man Star ForceTM 2 blends a unique formula of RPG exploration elements with fast-paced action, as players travel and battle between coexisting worlds, the physical world and the virtual Wave World, to unravel the mystery around this new troublemaker. Players will encounter enemies in the virtual Wave World and battle them on three-by-five battle grids with their Battle Card deck. Mega Man Star ForceTM 2also adds an upgraded "Transer" system.
- Two co-existing worlds – explore the real world in human form and transform into Mega Man to maneuver through the virtual "Wave World"
- Each game version offers a unique powered-up transformation of Mega Man based on the respective elemental powers and can unleash spectacular special attacks, including "Zerker," which bestows Mega Man with a huge sword imbued with the power of lighting, "Ninja," which boosts Mega Man's speed and enables him to throw a huge Shurikan and "Saurian," which gives Mega Man the power of explosive fiery fists.
- Each character has their own customizable Personal Page in the game where Battle Cards and information can be viewed and traded with friends to compare progress
- Nintendo Wi-Fi connection or the Wireless LAN allows players to connect with in-game friends regardless of their location, add new friends to their network to create a "Brother Band" network, where they can share cards, status upgrades, and even help each other to perform, upgraded transformations.
