Famitsu, the Japanese gaming news delicatessen, is reporting that Capcom will sport a couple of new Rockman (Mega Man) titles for Nintendo systems at the Tokyo Game Show. One half of the equation will be the latest instalment in the .EXE (Battle Network) series on GBA, and quite literally completing the link will be a new Cube counterpart called .EXE Transmission. Although we couldn't possibly comment on this arriving in Europe, it would be a mighty big surprise if it didn't. The Battle Network series of games, for those who haven't heard of them, focus on Mega Man's fight to track down and kill an evil electronic virus. He does this by chasing it through various sections of his home where it infests electronic equipment. He sends in his little buddy to sort it out, and you play both sections. The GBA Battle Network games have so far met with a fairly warm reception from critics and fans bored of the traditional eight-levels-plus-boss formula. Once the TGS is out of the way, expect to hear more about both new titles. Related Feature - Showtime in Japan, TGS 2002
