A lot of old Rockman commercials have surfaced over the years, but very few have been found in high quality. Time hasn't been kind to VHS tapes, mind you. Thanks to the efforts of a one Giraux, however, we can now enjoy the oldest of these commercials without all that terrible fuzz. Grain free, the very first Rockman commercial from 1987 lives on!
For comparison, here's the original that's been floating around the net for years.
This footage comes to us from "Capcom Consumer Chronicle", a rare DVD set containing all sorts of interesting clips from Capcom's history. It's the only Rockman commercial on there, I'm afraid. Even so, it's reassuring that Capcom held onto it all these years. It leaves me hopeful that the rest of the lot are kept in storage somewhere, ready to be preserved online in the highest quality possible.
