TGN Sunday Edition: News Snippets

“What’s a news snippet?” I hear you ask. Well, they’re just those shorter stories that we come across here at TGN that don’t have much to go with it.

Or it’s something else along those lines that aren’t a full story, but we want to make sure you know about it anyway. We’ve collected them together and have them here for you now.

Brutal Gamer talks with Jasco about Megaman board game

Brutal Gamer had themselves a chat with Jason Hawronsky from Jasco Games about the upcoming Megaman board game release.


From the website:

Jason said that the Mega Man board game was a dream come true, and shared how he came up with the idea. “I came up with the idea while sleeping on a vacation in New York. I was at a Best Western, woke up in the middle of the night, wrote down the rules and concepts for a Mega Man board game, and then went back to sleep.”

Jason also added in that there are pictures of his original concepts from the dream floating around on the internet, and expressed how long he has been a fan of the Mega Man series. “I have been a fan of Mega Man since I was young and my best friend is probably the most fanatical Mega Man fan I know. That also had some influence on my knowledge for the Blue Bomber.”

Jasco Games unlocks Time Man in Mega Man Board Game Kickstarter

Jasco Games unlocked the Time Man card pack over in their Mega Man Board Game Kickstarter.

Jasco Games unlocks Cut Man for the Mega Man Board Game

Jasco Games has unlocked Cut Man for their Mega Man Board Game over on Kickstarter.


From the post:

Cut Man’s stage is unlocked! With that we get a new board, deck of 40 cards, Mega Man game piece, Mega Man character card, 12 Robot Master tokens, and Minions!

The total Miniature count is now at 13 for the core game (not including Proto Man), and 22 Miniatures for the Deluxe Bundle (also not including Proto Man). These are 40mm scale (big!) and there are more to come! Lets get these Deluxe Bundles up to 30+ miniatures! Mets and Rush coming up next!

New stretch goal adjustments in the Mega Man Kickstarter

Jasco Games has updated their stretch goal levels for their Mega Man Kickstarter campaign.


From the update:

That having been said, we are happy to announce we have adjusted our Stretch Goal previews! We have been listening to what our backers and fans are saying and decided to update the stretch goals previews with more bonuses and upgrades and make Cut Man available as soon as possible. His addition to the game is one of the larger expenses in manufacturing due to the sheer number of components, but because our backers and CapCom have been behind us so much (see international territories), we believe the risk now is minimal to include his stage into the game at a lower level.

We can’t wait to see what we unlock in the next few weeks and we’re looking forward to getting all of these items produced and finalized!

The new International pledge levels will open at 14:00 GMT on December 30 and will offer another round of early bird pledges specifically for International audiences.

Created by fans of Mega Man and the publisher of the Universal Fighting System CCG, the board game is Jasco Games’ love letter to one of the best video game characters of all time.

Second, we wanted fans to have a chance to show their support for Mega Man and be involved in this exciting process.
