New Mega Man Animated Series coming to Television in 2017
« on: June 02, 2015, 07:30:21 PM »
*blows dust off new News button*

Haven't had to do this in a while, but well yeah, this is legit news. According to this article on Deadline, we are getting a brand new Mega Man animated series on television in 2017, which would coincide with the 30th anniversary of our beloved franchise. Dentsu Entertainment USA and Man of Action Entertainment will partner up to create this new iteration of the Super Fighting Robot (see what I did there?  8D). If you need some street cred on Man of Action Entertainment, here you go.

Quote
Man of Action Entertainment is the bi-coastal creative collective responsible for such mega-hits as the Ben 10 empire and Generator Rex on Cartoon Network, and writing and producing Marvelís Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvelís Avengers Assemble for Disney XD. They are also the creators of the characters and team that populate Disney/Marvelís hit feature film, Big Hero 6, the first-ever Disney animated feature based on a Marvel property.

More on this as it develops. Either way, WOOHOO!!!!

I'm very happy about this because essentially THIS is what I've been calling for. I said back during all the [parasitic bomb] that went down with MML3 is that they need to re-garner interest in the franchise and get new kids and such to want to play MegaMan and this is the best way to do it.

Well I kind of liked Generator Rex and the first 2 Ben 10's before Ultimate Alien before they decided to [parasitic bomb] on Ben's character growth by making him reverse his maturity after he defeated the High Breed.  God I hated that.

I'll refrain from getting excited until I see the first trailer. Or at least some screens.

I'm fairly mixed towards Man of Action's track record.

Considering Ultimate Spiderman I don't blame you, though I've never seen Avengers Assemble.

Huh.

Well.

I do hope this is good and takes off.  I know I'll watch it.  Might rekindle my interest in the franchise again, because let's face it, it's been dead for a while.

The only activity I see on this board is from bots trying to post half the time. >.>

Understatement of the century. I hope this does well. At least better than Sonic Boom.

I really hope the character designs look good too, though I wonder if they would include Time Man and Oilman as unlikely as it seems.  I kind of like those 2 myself.

That's the true hope I have for this show. That it will rekindle interest as well as garner more interest from this new generation who knows nothing about MegaMan.

I mean, take it into perspective. The last proper MM title - Rockman 10 - was released in 2010,  five years ago. Five. Years. (I don't count the other stuff like Xover and SF x MM).

I mean, for such a big name franchise as Mega Man, that's ridiculous. There have been more Resident Evils and Metal Gear Solids in the last five years than there has entries in a series that predates the former and is as old as the latter.

Right, and those games were more fanservice to the classic crowd, like me, than anyone else. The newer generation is not interested. This might be the best chance to get them interested.

Yep.

The best thing that could happen is that this serves as a repeat of what EXE/BN did for the brand back in the early 2000s: new franchise, new take on a classic character revamped for a modern day audience, which goes on to sell well and makes the brand healthier, as a whole. Whether that means revamping a Rockman we already know (Classic or X), or a brand new series, that's up to Capcom and co. But to say the least, it's the most exciting thing we've had to look forward to regarding the brand and I'm looking forward to it. Besides, remember how we were still getting X and Zero games, even as EXE was the main flagship during that period? If I could at least get a periodic Classic series release every so often in between releases of the new series, that'd be nice. 8D

In any case, I know someone over at Archie Comics must be whooping and jumping for joy over this news. They're looking to be FINALLY getting some help from Capcom when it comes to trying to sell a comic based on one of their IPs!

Eh... I'll wait and see. Wouldn't object if they took some cues from the Archie series.

Something makes me wonder if this was done to counter the Mighty No. 9 cartoon. And a western-style Mega Man could be an Archie case or a Ruby Spears. Or even worse and I don't want to imagine that being possible.

It'd be a sad day if they can actually top the stupidity of this.
