The MegaJacket Has Been Greenlit
The Mega Man-inspired hooded jacket, an outstanding concept from video game clothing designer Enzo Volante, is now a thing. The men's cut has received over 200 pre-orders and is now officially in production, reads a banner at the Capcom Store.
As the story goes, Capcom would only produce the jacket if a certain number of people committed to buy it. Specifically, 200 male and 100 female cuts had to be pre-ordered by March 31st. While the men's cut exceeded its goal, it appears the female cut failed to reach 100 pre-orders. It's still up for pre-order, however, so there may yet be a chance to push it into production.
In any case, the jacket is due out July 23rd. It may not be suitable summer wear but it's nice to have it for a breezy fall!
