April Fools: Mega Man: Date My Robot Master Steals Our Heart

Super Dating Robot: Mega Man!

Shacknews has played its share of dating simulators in the past. I myself have played Hatoful Boyfriend. (Ahem... two Hatoful Boyfriend games.) And then there's Chris Jarrard, who played Dream Daddy. So I'd say we're rapidly becoming experts in the genre. Now let's see what happens when one of our favorite franchises jumps into this genre.

Mega Man has a rich cast of characters, even if many of them are killer robots. So surely this series has enough to explore a dating simulator. And that's where Capcom came up with Mega Man: Date My Robot Master.

"It is the year 20XX," begins Capcom-Unity. "The world breathes a collective sigh of relief now that Mega Man has once again put an end to Dr. Wily’s plans for world domination. But then... a mysterious new transfer robot joins the ranks of Robot University! Learn to navigate robot society and get to know eight different Robot Masters from classic Mega Man adventures in this unique visual novel set in the Mega Man universe! Placed in the metal shoes of a new student assembled by Dr. Light himself, it's up to you to learn about the secrets of the university, and maybe, if you're lucky, find love along the way."

With multiple endings, you'll have plenty of chances to woo that Robot Master that you've been crushing on since the first day of school. But try and resist the urge to cheat. There's nothing more fun than figuring out someone's weakness without using a guide.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
