Mega Man is receiving a new animated series courtesy of Man of Action and Dentsu Entertainment USA. In the past, Dentsu has worked on such shows as LBX and Monsuno while Man of Action is known for Ben 10 and Generator Rex. The two groups will develop the show together, with Man of Action writing the script and serving as executive producer. DHX Media will help develop and distribute the 26 episode series world-wide.

The new series is intended for long-time fans and children brand new to the franchise. New characters will be mixed in with familiar faces such as Rush. Mega Man himself will be a schoolboy named Aki Light, dawning his iconic helmet and armor in secret. Here is how the series is being described:

The new animated Mega Man series focuses on a normal, upbeat schoolboy robot, who discovers that deep within his programming lies secret protocols that can transform him into the powerful Mega Man. And, as the world’s first robotic super-hero, Mega Man must face the threats of Silicon City, while trying to preserve his secret identity and maintain a regular robot boy life.

The series is aiming for a release late next year in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the franchise.

    Yikes that’s one ugly design. Paper thin limbs with those eyes that makes it look like a weeb design than an anime design.

    The character design is ugly as hell, but I trust Man of Action will make a fun cartoon out of Megaman.

    The secret identity bit is a bit of a weird thing to have in a Megaman series. Perhaps this means that Capcom is planing to actually release a new game in the franchise?

    • Didney Worl

      I’m calling it. It’ll be a game based on the show based on the game. Hopefully, it’ll be less like Sonic Boom and more like Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. Seriously though, if you’re looking for some fun 3D platformers give both Ghostly Adventures games a shot, they’re dirt cheap now.

      I haven’t played those. I’ll give them a try, thanks for the recommendation.

  • Razorfall

    Yep. This is going to be awful.
