The North American publisher Udon Entertainment announced on Thursday that it will publish Megaman Gigamix, Hitoshi Ariga's latest manga series based on CAPCOM's Megaman (Rockman) videogame franchise. Ariga has been drawing Megaman manga titles for over a decade, and Udon released his earlier Mega Man Megamix manga last year.
The Megaman Gigamix sequel ran for three volumes between 2009 and 2010 in Japan under the name Rockman Gigamix. Udon noted that this space adventure story features every Robot Master character from the first eight Megaman games.
Udon will ship the first Megaman Gigamix volume on May 4, and the publisher is previewing pages from the first volume on its blog. The Megaman franchise has spawned dozens of game releases as well as numerous manga, anime television series, original video animation, and movie projects.
