Capcom officially announced a new Mega Man animated series for 2017

The Blue Bomber hasn’t been in the spotlight for quite some time now (aside from his third party appearance in Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U). Many believed he was long forgotten by the company he represented, Capcom. But a tweet from the company sets out to show the gaming community that they haven’t forgotten about the blue robot.

The tweet announced that a new Mega Man animated series will debut sometime in 2017 – the same year as Mega Man’s 30th Anniversary. The tweet linked to an article by Capcom employee, Kellen Haney. He revealed that the animation company, Man of Action, will be collaborating with Dentsu Entertainment as executive producers overseeing the writing and story development. The article also revealed Mega Man’s new look for the animated series and a synopsis of the plot.

“The new animated Mega Man series will follow Aki Light – a normal, upbeat, and above all optimistic young school-aged robot living in Silicon City. He soon learns that deep within his programming are secret protocols that allow him to transform – giving him nanocore armor, a Mega Buster, and the iconic helmet to turn him into a superhero – Mega Man!”
