Let’s go ahead and take our magical time eraser out and use it to forget that the Mega Man NT Warrior cartoon ever happened. Now that that cartoon is out of our mind, lets look back at the animated versions of Mega Man that we liked, and get excited that a new Mega Man cartoon will be coming back 26 original episodes.
According to Deadline Dentsu Entertainment USA and Man of Action Entertainment will be bring Mega Man back in animated for just in time to celebrate it’s 30th anniversary. We’ve had he year of Luigi, not it’s time for the year of the Mega Man. I’m sure that they marketing team will do better with a label, but hey it’s all I could think of right now. The only bad thing, is that this news is coming about a year and a half early as the show isn’t expected to come out until 2017.
My only concern is what channel will be picking this show up? Saturday morning cartoons are all but dead and it’s not Disney owned, so Cartoon Network looks to be the best choice. The thing is, in a year and a half will it still be the best choice or will the digital market be more popular. There’s a lot that can be done with a year of expanding technology, so we’ll just have to see what’s available.
