Online retailer Tanomi has unveiled the cover of the 2011 Rockman 8 manga reprint on their preorder page, which features snazzy new art of Rockman and a rather ominous Duo. Author/illustrator Koji Izuki looks to have whipped this one up himself -- a perfect image for this single-volume compilation of books one and two.
Tanomi's listing for the book has also updated with a release date, finally: May 27, 2011. The A5 size, 512-page book will ship out nationwide in late May for 2,625 Yen, or roughly $31.00 USD.
Enticing fans to purchase the manga through Tanomi is the special offer of a set of limited edition postcards featuring more, exclusive art from Izuki. The cards will arrive with you order, a promotion that is also being offered with Shigeto Ikahara's upcoming Rockman 7 reprints.
It is still unknown if UDON Entertainment has any plans to localize Rockman 8 or Ikahara's RM7 reprints. As per usual, future UDON products usually leak out from Amazon so I'd advise you to keep scoping that out once in a while.
