I can't tell you how many times I watched the opening animation for Mega Man 8, as well as all the subsequent animated segments. There's just something I love about the art style so much. I'd love to have one of the cels from those animations myself, and now I can make it happen!
Believe it or not, a collection of these cels has surfaced at a swap meet, and now they're being put online for all to purchase. I'm so tempted to pony up some cash for one of these. You can follow up on what the seller is offering through her Twitter account.
Man, what a different time it was. There wasn't an internet to promote your games with. All you had was game magazines and promo tapes like this! Talk about time capsules from a bygone era.
The following was said by Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya...
''I want to say that Capcom has not forgotten about Rockman. This (30th anniversary logo) here is being put to good use. Rockman's 30th anniversary is coming in December – December, please remember that date!
On behalf of Ucchy and everyone here, we are looking forward to it very much and hope you are as well. We are deeply pleased to be able to share this with all the fans who have made this possible. Thank you for all of your support, up til now, and in the future.''
Looking for a Mega Man onesie? How about a Mega Man watch or backpack? Capcom has you covered with their latest round of Mega Man merch. No word on when/if these goodies will be coming stateside, but we're sure import retailers will stock them soon. Check out the lineup here.
The above is concept art of Roll for an upcoming Nendoroid figurine. As you might notice, the design isn't really Nendoroid in style. Nendoroid figurines are usually much more chibi in their design. This is leading some to believe that this redesign of Roll is actually part of something bigger going on with the Mega Man franchise. All I can say is that I certainly hope that's the case!
A retail listing via Rakuten looks like it might have revealed the Mega Man 30th anniversary logo a bit early. If you look at the jacket, one of the arms has a patch that clearly shows off a 30th anniversary logo.
You know what would go nicely with this logo, Capcom? A new Mega Man game! A boy can dream, can't he?
