Rockman has Been Down too Long in the Spike-Filled Sea

If there's one thing you love about Rockman/Mega Man games it's the parts when Mega Man is falling down a pit filled with spikes. Right? Capcom seems to think so because in Rockman Diver Kai that's exactly what Mega Man does, but endlessly. The further he falls, the more points you get. Mega Man get to use the Mega Buster to destroy spikes, but I'm guessing it's a one-time deal because otherwise it would be too easy. Along his wet decent, Mega Man will fall past Bubbleman and Diveman at some point and the music will actually change to their stage music, which is pretty cool and adds at least a little variety. The best part of the game is that you can play as Splash woman, the only female robot master in Mega Man games.

One player captured a video of the cell phone game in it's relentless soaking action. This video is nearly 9 minutes of Mega Man falling, with Splash Woman taking over at the 6-minute mark. The game is currently only in Japan and is silly, but I wouldn't be surprised if Capcom brought Rockman Diver to the US. And shouldn't the name be Rockman Sinker since he just sinks? I guess that doesn't have the same ring to it, plus I wouldn't have been able to use the Dio reference. Also, sorry for two Dio references within one week. Rockman Diver!
