Exciting news for Megaman and fan game fans here today. In the first “Games You Haven’t Played” bonus entry, I bring news of an upcoming English and Japanese translation of the fan game Megaman ZX Prequel. A Chinese fan made project, Megaman ZX Prequel is a Windows native game set 200 years before the original ZX. It’s been out and highly regarded since July, but now there is a fully translated version alongside an updated build on the way. Production began about 2 weeks ago according to this forum post (in Japanese). Check out the game in the video below.
You can play the game right now in Chinese. I’ve read there are some issues with the game running on the latest version of Windows 10 though. I’m sure the update will address this. You can get through the game with minor difficulty despite the language barrier, but you will miss out on the plot obviously.
If Capcom refuses to make Megaman games for the modern day, the fans will. I’m looking forward to checking this one out!
