Rockman Xover going to Android, accepting boss designs

I'm sorta impressed that this game is still a thing

[Custom boss by Heat Man]

According to various hands-on impressions, we certainly dodged a bullet when Capcom decided to hold off on localizing Rockman Xover. Nonetheless, the free-to-play social title continues unabated in its native Japan, indicating that it must be somewhat successful. I'm honestly quite impressed by Capcom's perseverance -- the company has given this moldy cheese more attention than anything else Mega Man in the last couple of years.

Capcom is bringing the Xover love to Android devices at some point in the near future. In addition, a boss creation contest has been kicked off on Nico Nico Seiga, the art community subsection of the Japanese video sharing site Nico Nico Douga. Through the end of March, users can submit their designs; the winner will have his or her boss included in the game and will also receive a "Battle Memory" card of the boss plus other special in-game cards. Three runners-up will have their designs transformed into "Battle Memory" and also receive special cards, while 21 others will just receive a set of special cards.

Capcom's boss design contests have always been one of the coolest parts about the Mega Man series, even though they are typically restricted to Japanese residents. Xover still looks and smells like ass, but it's cool that Capcom is running this competition.
