It seems like Capcom hasn’t completely abandoned Mega Man, as a new animated TV series based on the popular video game franchise has been announced.

This new production comes from a partnership between Capcom and Dentsu Entertainment, who will own the rights to worldwide broadcasting and licensing. Dentsu will in turn partner with Man of Action Entertainment, who will be responsible for the creating, writing and production of the series.

This won’t be the first time the Blue Bomber appears on the small screen. There have been a few Mega Man animated series in the past, all meeting with varying degrees of success.

Twenty-six episodes have been ordered so far, and they’re likely to air sometime in 2017–which, coincidentally, will mark the franchise’s 30th anniversary. There’s no word on whether the series will be broadcast on TV or from an online streaming service, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing more details in the future.

A new TV series may not be what fans upset at the cancellation of Mega Man Universe and Mega Man Legends 3 were hoping for when it comes to Mega Man news, but I think we can all agree, this is a step in the right direction. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
