A new cartoon TV series for the video game franchise Mega Man has been announced and is undergoing development.
The show is being produced by American companies, so it is safe to assume the show is English. How much of the subject matter will stay faithful and how much might be Westernised still remains to be seen, as little else is known about the development at this point. Two companies are taking on the series as a joint project: Dentsu Entertainment USA and Man of Action Entertainment. The latter of these companies is known for cartoons such as Ben 10, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble.
Mega Man is a video game series that began in 1987, centering around the titular blue robotic hero as he battles various enemies. The game franchise has well 100 games under its belt, along with a few manga spinoffs and a 1994 anime series under the same name.
If the 26-episode show airs in 2017, as it is slated to do, it will mark the 30 year anniversary of the first game. It will certainly be amazing to see how much things have changed, and yet, how much of the material will remain the same.
