2018 is a big year for Mega Man, in a few weeks Capcom will release the Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC and in October we will finally get a brand new game in the series with Mega Man 11.
Also set for release later this year is the new animated series Mega Man: Fully Charged which will air on Cartoon Network. The series is aimed for a younger audience so many fans have been pretty vocal about the look of the character but it still remains to be seen how the series will be overall.
Rather than making us wait, at San Diego Comic-Con which is just a little over a week away, you can get a behind the scenes look at the at the Mega Man: Fully Charged TV series premier panel on Friday, July 20 at 6:00 PM in room 25 ABC.
“Kazuhiro Tsuchiya (Capcom, video game producer, Mega Man, Asura’s Wrath), Man of Action (creators of Ben 10 and the team and characters of Big Hero 6), and Logan McPherson (DHX Studios, VP, creative and animated production, Slugterra, The Deep, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2D series) give a behind-the-scenes peek into the production of this new animated show, aimed at kids 5 to 11. Celebrating the 30-year legacy of this iconic, game-based character, the panelists will discuss the background and creative evolution of the new series, followed by screening of never-before-seen footage from the show, coming soon to Cartoon Network.”
If you want more Mega Man, Capcom will also be holding a Mega Man 30th anniversary panel on Thursday, July 19, from 3:30 to 4:30 PM in room 6BCF. Kazuhiro Tsuchiya will be joined by Nonaka Daizo (Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 producer) to talk about the history of the blue bomber, show footage for the upcoming Mega Man 11 along with trivia and giveaways.
