Mega Man X Command Mission takes the blue bomber franchise in a whole new direction by introducing it to the role playing game (RPG) genre. The game produces an exciting new title set within the Mega Man X universe. With fundamental Mega Man characteristics, cel-shaded characters and true 3-D stylized environments, Mega Man X Command Mission is sure to please fans and gamers new to the franchise. Mega Man X Command Mission is scheduled for release throughout North America this summer 2004. The Mega Man franchise, celebrating more than 15 years of entertaining kids of all ages, has sold over 20 million units worldwide.
In Mega Man X Command Mission, Mega Man must infiltrate Giga City Island to thwart the evil plans of the Liberion Army who have initiated a riot. By choosing from a selection of seven different playable characters, gamers construct a three-member attack force using Mega Man, Zero, Axl, or characters new to the Mega Man universe, to help bring peace to the region once and for all. It is up to gamers to create a dream team of Mega Man’s allies and reploid robot friends to stop the destructive battle that has begun to wage itself on Giga City Island.
Mega Man X Command Mission will have new and exciting features that make this RPG play like a true action game; including a revolutionary "Cross Order System" that allows flawless execution of special and finishing attack moves on enemies. There are plenty of ways to do battle: 1) “Party Hookup” where a character’s main and sub-weapon can be used simultaneously; 2) “Action Trigger,” which allows players to control their characters in real time, and 3) “Hyper Mode” which kicks into gear when the action starts to get a little too close for comfort. Pull off linked main and sub-weapon attacks to perform a super-powerful “Final Strike” finishing move. Additionally, by using a super energy metal called “Force Metal,” players can upgrade weapons, abilities, and attack moves, greatly improving their character’s capabilities.
