Details are light at the moment, but Capcom will partner with Dentsu Entertainment to creat a 26 episode series. Dentsu will own the licensing rights around the world and will team up with Man of Action, known for cartoons such as Ben 10, Generator Rex and Big Hero 6. There is no word on how the show will be, but it will debut 2 years from now, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the legendary blue bomber.
While past Mega Man games have continued to be re-released and Mega Man himself has made appearances in games like Super Smash Bros. and Street Fighter X Tekken, there haven't been many new Mega Man games of late. In fact, Capcom has canceled a number of games in recent years, including Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe in 2011. On the bright side, Capcom did re-release the rare Misadventures of Tron Bonne on PSN last month.
All I can say that I'm a little bit mixed about the whole thing. Happy to see the Blue Bomber have another animated series once again. I remember watching the Ruby Spears cartoon series, and even NT Warrior. But even if the Mega Man series is dead, he still appeared in other games such as Smash Bros, Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken. Yet he also has a comic book series made by Archie Comics, and even crossed over with Sonic The Hedgehog. Anyways, let's see what shall happen in the near future.
God Bless and Play Hard Gamers!
