Capcom Announces New Mega Man Animated Show For 2017

Capcom and Man of Action Entertainment announced today that Mega Man is heading back to the world of animation.

This isn't the first time Mega Man has been animated outside of his video games. In the mid-90s, there were two 13 episode seasons of a Mega Man cartoon show, which is what you see pictured above. Man of Action Entertainment created the animated shows Ben 10 and Generator Rex as well as a few shows based on Marvel properties.

The new Mega Man cartoon will premiere in 2017 and will likely compete, ironically, with the animated Mighty No. 9 TV show.

Our Take
I remember watching the original Mega Man animated show. It didn't do much for me, but I was probably a little old for it when I started watching.
