Usually, when we cover gaming for mobile devices, it is for Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch. However, Capcom is releasing one of its sacred cows onto mobile devices not made by Apple (at least for now). It was previously announced that Mega Man: Rush Marine
was coming to mobile devices, but we didn’t know when, what or how. Well, some of those questions were answered yesterday when Capcom said that in early 2010, Mega Man: Rush Marine would hit the Windows Mobile Blackberry devices. It is currently available on standard BREW and Java devices, but the move to Blackberry and WM is important. Now, we just need an App for that.
