A fan has created a 120 x 109 cm Mega Man mosaic which possesses roughly 1,500 screenshots from the first six games in the series. Shots were captured during playthroughs and feature all levels from Mega Man 1 – 6. In addition, the artist worked on a gallery that contains Mega Man boxes/cartridges from every region. You can check out a description of the art below as well as a bunch of pictures.
“so let me explain really quick: you all know those mosaic pictures composed of hundreds or thousands of little pictures. well this is one made out of ~1’500 mega man screenshots. they’re not completely random, however, they’re taken from playthroughs of mega man 1 – 6 (one screenshot taken every x seconds). every stage is in there, from every classic nes mega man game.
the idea was to have one screenshot for every pixel of the mega man sprite and then have the sprite surrounded by the remaining screenshots.
now, in theory there shouldn’t be any duplicates, i took just the right amount of screenshots – however, what you see here is actually a composite of several different mosaics and there’s been a LOT of manual editing too, a lot of photoshop work etc. it’s possible that several of the tiles show up twice or even three times. but the majority of the tiles are unique, even the ones that look very similar. took me several weeks to finish the whole thing.
i also made a little gallery with all the boxes and cartridges of all the games from every region (at the very bottom).
and there’s what you could call a little easter egg in there (for my own convenience really : P ): two rows of screenshots at the bottom (surrounded by a black outline) that show all the weaknesses of robot masters, wily castle bosses and wily machines. all of those screenshots were edited by hand (and it took fucking FOREVER). you’ll see it in the detail shots.
the whole thing was printed on canvas and mounted on a wooden frame. full size: 120 x 109 cm (that’s about 4 ft tall).”
Thanks to Romero for the news tip!

Capcom says fans should look out for Captivate 2010 for announcements
Posted 7 years ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 5 Comments
This information comes from Senior Manager of Community Seth Killian, who shared the following information on the Capcom-Unity message boards…
“As far as announcements in general go, keep your eyes peeled for news from our upcoming ‘Captivate’ event, where we usually have some interesting stuff to reveal…”
This news isn’t very surprising since Capcom always has some announcements to share at Captivate. Last year, the company showed off Spyborgs’ new look, announced the localization for Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, and featured Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. I’m sure there will be a number of goodies this year as well.

According to Anime News Network, the first Professor Layton movie will see a western release this year. Manga Entertainment plans to have the movie ready for DVD and Blue-ray sometime in September. It’s possible that Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva will receive a name change and it is not yet known if voices will be redubbed. Also, it should be noted that Manga Entertainment is a British company, so it isn’t entirely clear if the anime will become available in North America.
