Mega Man

Mega Man X: Mega Mission has been published in Japanese, but never in English. That will change early next year thanks to UDON Entertainment.

UDON revealed at Comic-Con yesterday that Hitoshi Ariga’s Mega Man X: Mega Mission will finally receive a North American release. The first full-color, 48-page issue will be made available in January 2019.

As Rockman Corner notes, Mega Mission first appeared in Hitoshi Ariga’s Rockman Remix manga compilation in 1996. It’s an adaptation of the Mega Mission trading cards by Bandai, which follows a storyline that took place between Mega Man X2 and Mega Man X3.

A new Mega Man amiibo is on the way, Capcom has revealed. It will be sold standalone as well as with the Mega Man 11 Collector’s Package in Japan. Aside from the amiibo, a guide book and poster will be included.

Below are some additional photos:

Mega Man: Fully Charged was represented on the Licensing Expo 2018 showroom floor as expected. There isn’t too much to report initially, but there are a couple of interesting things.

First, you can see a new logo for Fully Charged with the subtitle above along with a new Mega Man render. It’s also confirmed that Jakks Pacific has plants for a toyline in 2019, though it will be different from the toyline planned for this summer.

The Mega Man: Fully Charged animated series should debut on Cartoon Network later this year.



A couple of months ago, new art surfaced for the Mega Man animated series – now known as Mega Man: Fully Charged. It offered a glimpse at five different Robot Masters.

Thanks to the the latest Licensing Source Book, we have a new look at one of the unrecognizable characters shown in the art. It’s a yellow-looking design who is drawing comparisons to Starscream from Transformers – at least based on the somewhat blurry appearance above. Whether he’s a reinterpretation of a classic Robot Master or someone entirely new is unknown.

Rockman Corner reports that we should be getting more details about Mega Man: Fully Charged this summer or possibly sooner. Since the show is debuting on Cartoon Network this year, we do need to start hearing more.

We’ve known about the Mega Man animated series as early as 2015. Yet over the past few years, there has been relatively little information shared about the show.

We do have a slight update from the latest issue of Licensing Source Book Europe. A small blurb is present in the magazine, which shows a new name of “Mega Man: Fully Charged”. It’s expected to appear at this year’s licensing expo between May 22 and May 24. Along with the show on Cartoon Network, Jakks Pacific will apparently be making a toyline.

Here’s a synopsis for the show:

Capcom and UDON are partnering on a special 300-page book for Mega Man. On Amazon, the retailer lists Mega Man: Official Complete Works.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Just in case you forgot that the new Mega Man animated series is still happening, a previously-unseen piece of art has emerged. What’s notable here is that we’re able to see the Robot Masters for the first time.

Fire Man, Ice Man, and Drill Man are all present. However, there are also a couple of unidentified Robot Masters.

The upcoming Mega Man animated series will premiere sometime this year.



Missed any of the action from the Mega Man 30th anniversary celebration live stream? If so, don’t fret. We have the full recording attached below.

Capcom is hosting a 30th anniversary celebration for Mega Man today. The main festivities begin at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM in the the UK / 8 PM in Europe. However, a “Streamer Showdown” pre-shown is actually starting now.

As for what this event will actually entail, we’re not quite sure at the moment. Nintendo of America has retweeted the event, and fans have been told that it’s something they won’t want to miss. A game announcement isn’t guaranteed, but that would certainly be nice.

In any case, you can watch the live stream as it happens below. If something notable happens to come out of this, we’ll be sure to share the news.

Capcom is hosting a special 30th anniversary stream for Mega Man on Monday. Right now, we don’t know too much about it. Capcom has only said that it’s something you “won’t want to miss”.

Making things more interesting, Nintendo of America retweeted the news about the upcoming live stream. Could the reveal of a new game be happening? A new compilation that would hopefully be on Switch? Or is Capcom just stringing everyone along and a new stuffed toy will be shown instead?

No matter what happens, we’ll be there to watch over things in case anything is announced. Something game-related would be fantastic, but there are definitely no guarantees.
