Speedrunning group TheSpeedGamers has successfully hit their goal for their 72-hour Mega Man Marathon, raising a grand total of $11,860 for charity. After some technical issues in the first day, they made a great comeback thanks to various auctions, smashing their $10,000 goal and extending the marathon another full 24 hours. All money raised will go to Rocking H Ranch where it will be split up across multiple charities.
I was sent this video by a TREZ reader earlier. It is a trailer for a mobile game being released.
The actual bulk of video isn’t important. Skip to the end of the video where the title appears. You’ll notice that this “Flying Jet Robot” character looks very similar to MegaMan EXE. This isn’t the first time a mobile game has blatantly taken an existing character being passed off as original, but I think this is the first directly involving the Battle Network series.
Thanks to a regular TREZ reader for sending this in.
In just 10 days, on the 8th of March, TheSpeedGamers are going at it again with a 72-hour Mega Man Marathon: in just three days, they will be playing through a grand total of 27 Mega Man games, among which Battle Network 1, to raise money and awareness for the Rocking H Ranch and connected charities.
MegaDudes Productions, the team behind the popular Battle Network fangame MMBN: Chrono X have just released the game’s 4th demo! The game is brimming with new content such as chips, enemies, bosses and a completely original storyline. The 4th demo contains roughly 6 hours of content and runs on the PC. We’ve already played a bit of the game and were thoroughly impressed with how faithful it is to the original Battle Network games.
It’s mid-December, and we all know that means it’s time for the annual TREZ Winter Festival! The TREZ Winter Festival is a yearly events with lots of streams, tournaments and contests. We’ve been working hard the past week to organize events and make this year’s festival even better than the last. The resulting schedule is now up for all to see!
This year, we’ll be repeating some of last year’s most successful events, such as Master’s Craft and the Chrono X highlight event, but there will also be new things to enjoy, such as the Speedrun Challenge. Whether you’re a gamer or an artist, or something else entirely, there should be something you’ll like.
So what are you waiting for? Check out the schedule for this year.
After a delay, Rockman Xover is finally available on the Japanese iTunes App Store for iPod, iPhone and iPad. The game requires iOS 4.1 to run and is free to download; however, game currency can be bought via in-app purchases, which requires an internet connection. For the time being, it is unknown whether Xover will be coming stateside.

After a brief service interruption, TREZ’s home page is now back up and functioning. Thanks to long-time member Mgamerz, we now have a new host for the site. As the Legacy project has been cancelled recently, the references to it have been removed. You’ll also notice the features panel below now features the Rockman EXE WS Translation project, as it is now a major piece of content for the site.
Please report any issues and we’ll have them fixed as soon as possible.
Following high fan demand, SuperSweep, the company that produced the music for Mega Man Network Transmission, has announced Game Music Discovery Series: Rockman EXE Transmission Soundtrack, a music album with all those catchy tunes from Rockman EXE Transmission, known in the West as Mega Man Network Transmission. MMNT’s music has been available in the form of a gamerip for some time, but this is the first time it will be sold as an actual album.
For those interested, TREZ has now released purist and anime-dubbed versions of the EXE WS translation patch. The purist version uses the original Japanese names, such as Netto and Rockman. The NT Warrior version uses the Navi names from the anime, such as TorchMan instead of FireMan. The rest of the translation is fully in English though. Note however that these versions have not been thoroughly beta tested.
They can be download from the link below:
After a couple of week’s worth of effort from Greiga Master, boco, Midnite, and MegaRockEXE, the English translation patch for Rockman EXE WS is finally out!
Watch the trailer below to see what’s coming up.
