PSP「ロックマンロックマン」につきまして、「コンストラクション」メニュー内の「つなぐ!」から接続する『ロックマンロックマンWEB』のサービスを2022年11月30日をもって終了させていただきます。

ステージデータのアップロード/ダウンロード、SPデータのダウンロードはできなくなりますが、「つなぐ!」メニュー以外のコンテンツは引き続きお楽しみいただけます。

長らくの間、『ロックマンロックマンWEB』をご利用いただき、誠にありがとうございました。
The annoucement is in Japanese, but in summary. it says that the servers are shutting down on november 30th. all custom stages will no longer available, and the free dlc is going with them.
the dlc is probably the bigger loss here, as Roll (and the twelve seperate alternate costumes she got for some reason.) is only unlockable through that. i believe protoman was available through DLC as well, but that was merely an early unlock and he can be accessed through an offline method as well.
there was also some extra elements for the stage editor too, but the fact you can't share those levels around anymore kind of sucks the fun out of using them.

I didn't even know that game had a stage editor, wow.

I would love Mega Man Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X HD ports.

it's hard to be upset after 16 years of service when i'm sure barely anyone touched it in the last decade, but it's still bittersweet to see it go

if i remember right, most of these things were just unlock keys so i think sharing save data around should at least keep it accessible in the interim

CAPCOM did some good stuff on the PlayStation Portable, like this game, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X, Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, the Power Stone Collection, etc.

Was kinda disappointed that they didn't go beyond the first game, because it was a pretty neat remake I think. Maybe a rerelease one day?

I played this and didn't even know it had a stage editor lol. Was a fun remake, and the chibi 2.5D style was nice even if I prefer the iconic sprites.

Tangential, but if you want to make or play custom Mega Man stages, Mega Man Maker might be of interest...
