Deadline: Mega Man Games Have New Animated Show in the Works
posted on by Karen Ressler
The entertainment trade news source Deadline reported on Tuesday that Dentsu Entertainment USA (Monsuno, LBX) and Man of Action Entertainment (Ben 10, Generator Rex) are developing a 26-episode animated Mega Man series. The television series is slated for 2017, the 30th anniversary of the game franchise.
Dentsu holds the worldwide license for the franchise, and Man of Action will create and write the series, as well as serve as the executive producer.
The franchise began in 1987 and has since spawned numerous games and several anime adaptations. Discotek Media released the 1994 Japanese-American animated television series Mega Man (pictured right) in 2014. Viz began streaming the Mega Man Star Force (Ryūsei no Rockman) anime's English dub on its Neon Alley service this week.
