The ladies of Mega Man are forming a J-pop idol group

You don't think the Japanese like to pull April Fools' pranks, too? Well, they do!

Ucchy-san of Rockman Unity, the Japanese equivalent of Capcom-Unity, has revealed Capcom's grand plan for the Mega Man franchise's 25th anniversary. Three of the series' heroines -- Roll from Classic, Mayl from Battle Network, and Luna from Star Force -- are forming a J-pop idol group! And their first album, entitled "Transmission of Your Heart," will come out on December 17, 20XX, the day of the original Mega Man's Japanese release.

The girls' first live performance will be on the rooftop of the Capcom offices, and limited edition posters of the young ladies will be handed out. Granted, I don't think a single one of them is older than 13 (save for Roll, who is a robot and thus doesn't age, but let's be real here), so you might get a few looks if you try to hang said posters in your room.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised ff Capcom actually does turn this into a real thing.

Here is Capcom’s Rockman 25th Anniversary Plan [The Mega Man Network]

Resident Evil Revelations 2's extra episodes are fun, but non-essential

As you might be aware, Capcom is taking a really weird approach to Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition to bringing in an episodic format, they've also hitched two secretive "extra episodes" to the package, exclusive to ...more
