One of Capcom's surprise TGS announcements is a new Mega Man RPG...this one starring Mega Man X and pals, and it's not for GBA.
Famitsu.com has a single screenshot and details on one of Capcom's big TGS announcements. Rock Man: Mission Command is an RPG for GameCube and PlayStation 2, to be released sometime in 2004 in Japan.
The game features RPG gameplay for the first time in the Mega Man X sub-series. Battles allow you to control a party of Mega Man X, Zero, and Axl, the new character from Mega Man X7 on PS2. According to Famitsu.com, battles will retain some action elements, including letting you press time your button presses for extra damage a la Super Mario RPG and its offspring.
We'll have more coverage of Rock Man: Mission Command in the very near future.
