O hai there people of the interwebz,it's Tommy again reporting from the Chrono X team. We all hope you are having a wonderful April 1 so far and we hope that so far,you've been the pranker,and not the pranked. Sadly, I regret to announce that is not the case, because at this very moment, it is you who has been pranked today(at least GMT+1 zoners,if you are from America or near America,it's been 2 days so happy pre-april 1 to you!).
The screenshots you saw about our game is being ported onto the DS system are not 100% legit
*Drum roll* Yes, you read that title correctly. Despite us having said this a MILLION times, I am pleased to announce that Chrono X is now possible to play on your Nintendo DS system! How was this accomplished? Well, to be frank, I don't really understand it myself. Then again, I'm sure most of us non programmers would be able to. But, that doesn't matter! When I saw the screenies, I almost wet myself. These pictures were taken with Max's DS (those are his hands in the picture and this was NOT done with DS Game Maker.)devkitARM, and a few libraries like PAlib and wifids or something like that. I hope you guys change your underwear....
That's it boys and girls.Today is the day when Rockman Exe ( AKA Megaman Battle network 1) got released in Japan in 2001.At first people were sceptical about this new game style of Megaman but then people,especially the kids got hyped really quick about it(I can remember when i first played the original JAPANESE version of BN1,i had hard time understanding what's going on but it still kept me playing for no reason).
I think the most hyped game was Battle Network 5 by all the kids since,you could play as Protoman!! and Colonel as well,depending on your version.As time passed the series got some 'side attachments' such as Battle Chip Challange, Rockman exe wonderswan and the all cool Network Transmission for the gamecube which pushed the universe of battle network into the game mechanism of the old megaman games.
I remember when i was 15 and finished playing BN6 i was really sad as i read the text at the end of the game "Battle Network END" knowing that this was the last battle network game that i could play,but i thankfully i can still replay these dear games anytime for the joy of the sweet memories of my childhood.I'm listening to the musics of all battle network games while writing this article,and i must say it's quite nostalgic and gives me the chills thinking about how much fun i had with these masterpieces,especially with my favourite installment, Battle Network 3.
I hope all of you guys do at least what i do today,listening to some BN tunes,watching some vids,and playing a bit with them, to celebrate Keiji Inafune's great work.If you're looking for videos to watch about the games and their memories,i recommend FusionZX's channel on youtube.Here is on of his videos. Enjoy the celebration. I'm really graceful that i could play your games Keiji!
The whole Chrono X team is really thankful for your had work! THANK YOU AND HAPPY CELEBRATION EVERYONE!
