According to the above teaser from Jasco Games' Facebook, the officially licensed Mega Man board game Kickstarter will be launching soon. How soon? Well, I think it's safe to assume sometime around the end of Mighty No. 9's campaign. So, maybe, end of the weekend?
We'll keep an ear out. In the meantime, check out our past Mega Man board game coverage here and here. Stay tuned!
Update: I think we need to go over a few things again...
1) Jasco already has the license to develop the board game. It's a done deal. The Kickstarter is intended to provide us with a higher quality product. For example, Jasco would prefer to make a set of Mega Man player pieces with different colors and poses. Funding would help them obtain the materials/assets to make that happen.
Even if the Kickstarter fails, the board game will still be made. However, fancier components like colored player pieces won't be happening. Keep in mind, Jasco is a rather small company.
2) The Kickstarter is not some last-minute retaliation against Mighty No. 9. We've known about the board game and its accompanying Kickstarter before Mighty No. 9 was announced. Matter of fact, Jasco originally wanted to launch the KS in early September. Naturally, they chose to avoid competition.
3) "Pending Capcom Approval" refers to the IMAGE in the teaser, not the whole project. It even says "Images Not Final, Pending Capcom Approval."
More news soon.
Update 2: Jasco has put up an official FAQ about the project. Give it a read if you need additional clarity.
