MEGA MAN STAR FORCE  3
BLAZES TO NORTH AMERICAN RETAILERS ON NINTENDO DS

Two Versions of the Game — Black
Ace and Red Joker — Double the Possibilities

Capcom®, a leading worldwide
developer and publisher of video games, today announced that Mega Man Star Force
® 3 (MMSF3) for Nintendo DS™ has shipped to North American retailers. Mega Man
Star Force 3 comes in two different versions, Black Ace and Red Joker, allowing
friends to share unique items and powers utilizing the Nintendo Wi-Fi
Connection, enhancing their individual characters. Mega Man Star Force 3 is
rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) and
carries a suggested retail price of $29.99.

As in the previous games, Mega Man
Star Force 3 is a unique blend of an action and role-playing game (RPG),
combining the high intensity combat that is the hallmark of Mega Man® games with
Star Force’s strategic battle system. By defeating enemies and boss characters,
players earn “battle cards” that enhance and evolve Mega Man’s abilities and
attacks.

New to Mega Man Star Force 3 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 Mega Man Star Force 3.

In Mega Man Star Force 3, players
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 by using his unique “visualizer” 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 Mega Man Star Force 3, 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.
