It’s no big surprise that Mega Man fans have been suffering in silence the past few years. Since Mega Man 10, we haven’t gotten anything to get all the excited about, as Capcom has seemingly forgotten all about the blue robot, left to gather dust in the shadows. But new details may change this pattern. In the most recent update for the Mega Man Board Game, Update 102, they mention that while talking with Capcom to get approval for their product design, they found out that Mega Man has a new producer.

Now while it’s certainly possible this is no big deal, this could also imply that perhaps Capcom is considering breathing new life into the series. Perhaps they saw all the money Keiji Inafune made with Mighty No. 9, and realized the utter conviction and loyalty found in the Mega Man community. It’s equally possible that this new producer is just a place holder, taking the reins of the series only to do absolutely nothing with it. Though I’m far from optimistic about these events, I do hope it spells something good for Mega Man. After all, it is an iconic series, and one that shouldn’t just die off for no good reason. Chime in below on your thoughts regarding the whole thing.

    YES! They also just anounced a new animated series so this just gives me hopes that maybe Megaman isn’t so dead after all. Lest’s hope for the best!
