E3 2007: Not so much hands-on with Mega Man: Starforce


Okay, so when I was given a tour through the Capcom booth at E3, I barely had a chance to play the new Mega Man: Starforce series. Time, apparently, was very limited, and I only had about 1.2 minutes with these games. That’s right, games.

Capcom will be releasing three different versions of their new Mega Man: Starforce IP for the Nintendo DS. This new series, which is based on the previous Battle Network titles, will be available in Leo, Dragon, and Pegasus versions.

Like I said before, I barley had any time with these titles at all, but if you are a fan of card based, Pokeman-ish style Mega Man games – read on.

Well, if you’ve made it this far, then you are either twelve, or a hardcore Mega Man fan. Whatever category you happen to fall into, is fine by me.

Just know this: I really, in all honesty, didn’t have much of a chance to play these games, so I am unable to give you a complete and accurate opinion of them.

Mostly, I was just allowed to mess around with one of them (Leo?) for a few minutes until I was shuffled off to play something else. So the only things that I can tell you are that the trio of titles allow for online battling, and that each respective title – Leo, Pegasus, and Dragon – has its own game specific features (think Pokeman: Diamond, Pearl, Red, Blue, Whatever).

Lame, huh? That is, the fact that I barely got to play is lame. How am I supposed to give anybody any info if I can’t even have some quality time with a title? Oh, that’s right. There's still the press release.

•    Three stellar versions call upon the power of the elements – Ice Pegasus, Fire Leo and Green Dragon
•    Two co-existing worlds – explore the real world in human form and transform into Mega Man to maneuver the virtual “Wave World”
•    Cyber battles feature an immersive third person view as players engage enemies in a 3x5 battle grid
•    Each game version offers a unique powered-up transformation of Mega Man based on the respective elemental power and can unleash a special “Star Force Big Bang” attack
•    Battle Cards based on elemental attributes (fire, water, wood, electricity), each a part of a power chain where one is stronger or weaker than another
•    Best Combo – combine Battle Cards of the same type to unleash consecutive attacks
•    Dynamic Brother Band system – add up to six friends to help each other in battles, share Battle Cards, receive stat boosts and other special benefits
•    Each character has their own customizable Personal Page where Battle Cards and information can be viewed and traded with friends to compare progress

Hopefully, Capcom will see this and allow me to have an advanced copy of one these new titles. That way, I'll be able to tell you something more than, Chad loves Pegasus'!
