Capcom announces ‘Mega Man Star Force 3’ for Nintendo DS

Mega Man Star Force 3 Black Ace and Red Joker

Capcom has announced that Mega Man Star Force 3 for Nintendo DS will arrive in North America this summer. The series combines the platform combat of the classic Mega Man games with elements of RPG and strategy games.

The title will come in two versions, Black Ace and Red Joker, allowing two friends to share unique items and powers via the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection to enhance their individual characters.

Mega Man Star Force 3 Black Ace and Red JokerMega Man Star Force 3 Black Ace and Red JokerAs in the previous games, defeating enemies and boss characters earns players “battle cards” that enhance and evolve Mega Man’s abilities and attacks. New to MMSF3 are “Noise Changes,” random enhancements that change Mega Man’s form and unlock new abilities. The two versions of the game, Black Ace and Red Joker, each have over 100 unique Noise Types that can be combined with Mega Man to unlock elemental powers based on earth, air, water and fire.

The new Noise feature will add an exciting randomness to battles, encouraging players to explore, collect and battle across the digital world of MMSF3.

In MMSF3, players will travel between the physical world and the digital world via electromagnetic waves that form “wave roads.” Geo Stelar, the protagonist of the game, can see these wave roads through usage of his unique “visualiser” tool. Once in the digital world, Geo can merge with the electronic life-form known as Omega-Xis to become Mega Man.

The wave roads are being overrun by mysterious “noise” that change the player’s environment and powers in different ways. This noise is being generated by an approaching gigantic meteor that threatens both the physical and digital worlds of MMSF3, forcing Geo Stellar and his crew to fight the oncoming threat to save two worlds.

Fortunately, Mega Man discovers that he can control the Noise, using the new “Noise Change” system to transform into many different forms, including the ultimate “Black Ace” or “Red Joker” forms.
