First bit of footage emerges showing new Mega Man animated series

Posted on January 22, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Videos

At some point this year, a new animated series based on Mega Man will be debuting on Disney XD from Dentsu Entertainment USA and DHX Media. We hadn’t seen it until motion – until today that is.

A reel from Film Roman posted in November has a few seconds showing the Mega Man cartoon. It was originally uploaded at the very end of November, but fans came across the clip today. Take a look at the footage below.

    Wow it’s literally just Ben 10… I don’t think they know how to do anything that doesn’t involve watches…

    • haha your right loooks a lot like Ben10

    • Usama Notkani

      Don’t worry they ruined Ben 10 as well

  • Maxo

    Oh god that looks terrible

    The character design… ew
    If they’re gonna make a ugly Mega Man cartoon like that, they should’ve made it 3D instead

    What the “F” they do to Heathcliff?

    • AquaBat

      “We weren’t relevant at all while Garfield was, so let’s make him more like Garfield now while Garfield isn’t relevant either!”

    • Uncle Phil Hug

      Heathcliff is now an east african mother trying to do right by her kids

  • Justin McQuillen

    Why would they do this? Then later it will be cited as an excuse for 10 years as an example of why nobody wants a Mega Man cartoon.

  • Ninty Kad

    I don’t find it god awful, so it gets a pass from me.

  • Hank Hill

    Get ready for the MegaMan game that nobody wanted, a cheap side scrolling beat em up based on this crap.

    • José Pedrero

      I hadn’t thought about this before. This is really saddening me.

  • halcyon

    i really like his design without the armor though.

    • halcyon

      reminds me of the astro boy reboot

      • Except this reboot actually does something creative with the designs and animation. I still don’t know if I’ll like it (because I am obsessed with the ’03 anime), but it looks like the studio has some of Astro/Atom’s source in better mind.

        • halcyon

          i like the 2004 manga but i recall i didn’t enjoy the anime very much. seemed slow paced and filler-y.

          • Really? The anime had a lot of great story arcs and wove things together well. The first three episodes were slow-paced, but everything after picked up. Then again, the original Astro Boy was very similar to how the ’03 version paced itself. That’s part of why I enjoy that anime adaption; it’s the original in mold, but with more plot, good animation and paced better. (Shame some of the storylines didn’t make it and that some characters got changed, but oh well.)

            I didn’t read that manga adaption, but I may try it because I like Akira Himekawa. That’s a pair of talented ladies, for sure~.

          • halcyon

            i don’t think i got past the first three episodes. were you watching the english dub?

          • No, the Japanese version. The English version was definitely very butchered, sadly.

          • halcyon

            hm, maybe i’ll rewatch it sometime

          • It can be a little hard to get a hold of, but I think it’s a good watch. I’ve yet to finish it, but I appreciate its production values to this day.

      • Supporter

        I was literally wondering when that’s coming when I saw the Mega Man footage.

  • Wow. This actually dashed my hopes twice. I first read “footage emerges showing new Mega Man” only to get crazy excited before realizing it was a show instead of a game. But you know, a show is still acknowledgment. It could be good. I’ll watch the clip and see how it looks…

    Poor Mega Man. What have they done to you? TT_TT

  • R.Z.

    Kill it with fire !

  • Tlink7

    Don’t think anyone visiting this website is the target audience…

    …doesn’t mean it can’t be bad though, of course 😛

  • YamiryuuZero

    Looks really generic.

  • Addy

    Film Roman, they were well known (to me) for the Garfield specials and TV series during the 80s and 90s. They should bring out a new series one of these days.

    *watches video at 0:16*

    Oh, God no! That’s not what I asked for!

  • Huh. I don’t like the animation and art style. It feels so flat. Like, it has nice colors, but they somehow mildly wash them out or something? I feel like their older cartoons looked better than that. Capcom not putting in the budget, or something?

    Interesting to see Max Steel in there though! I know Nerd Corps was (sadly) acquired/devoured by another company, so how does that work?

  • Luke WalkingMoonTree

    The only good Mega Man anime is the NT Warrior one :v
