Brain Navi site has gone and updated their product listing for Hitoshi Ariga's Rockman Maniax to include the book's cover art. As you can see, it's a colorful splash of characters and antics from some of the stories featured in the compilation; a slew of gag comics from the mid nineties, Rockman X Megamissions, and more!
Maniax is said to include all of Ariga's 1997-98 gag strips, Rockman Remix's "Destruction Order" and "Rockman X Megamissions" stories, a variety of four-panel, miscellaneous strips, conceptual art, and a supposed new, untold story exclusive to the anthology. With so much content, you can bet this is going to be one thick book! And you're right: Maniax clocks in at an enormous 425 pages in A5 format.
Original due out this month in Japan, Wedge Holdings has since revised the book's release date to July 11, 2011. An official price tag has yet to be disclosed, but Amazon is offering pre-orders at 2,625 Yen (roughly $32.67). Sounds about right for an A5 book.
Maniax certainly seems like a fun project, especially if you're a fan of Ariga's light hearted mini strips. No word on this one coming Stateside, but given UDON's recent localization track record, I'd say chances are good.
