Mega Man's Next Big Foe Is Osaka Cybercrime
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Before Mega Man heads to the big screen, he'll need to put a stop to all those pesky fraudsters looking to make a quick buck with internet users' credit card information.
The Osaka Prefectural Police Department's cybercrime prevention division and Osaka Prefecture's council for preventing credit card crime are distributing new collaboration materials to educate the public about online crime. The collaboration posters, flyers (first image below), stickers (second image below), and memo pads (third image below) feature the hero from CAPCOM's Mega Man 11 video game.
Osaka police began distributing campaign materials, including 50,000 leaflets and 3,000 stickers, on October 8. The flyers and other materials are available at police stations in Osaka, and they will also be distributed at crime awareness events. The campaign will collaborate with initiatives throughout Japan to support crime prevention efforts. The flyers include pointers on how to ensure personal information remains safe and secure on the internet.
The Mega Man 11 game shipped on October 2 in North America and on October 4 in Japan. The game is available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
