As we reported on early last month, Capcom is, to the surprise of nobody on this planet, developing a third game in its Rockman EXE series, known as Megaman Battle Network domestically.
Not much is known about EXE 3 yet, except that players can expect the usual, in the form of new bosses, returning characters and a new selection of battle chips. Different areas in the game will also be accessible by way of a boat. The graphics, as seen below, are comparable to the first two games, though a bit more polished.
While no specific release date is known for Japan or the US, Capcom of Asia is listing the game to release in December of this year. A release in Japan around the same time is likely.
The first batch of images can be seen below, thanks to Japanese site eg.
Thanks to both Megaman Outpost and The Megaman Network for this information.
