Man of Actions Talks New Mega Man Cartoon

The new Mega Man animated series is still a couple years away, but that won't stop its creative force from talking about it. Sitting down with, Man of Action Studios dishes on what they hope to do with the character.

You’re other big project, obviously, is the Mega Man animated series. How did that project come about? And I know it’s still early in the production process, but is there anything you can tease about that project?
Rouleau: We’re working with Capcom and Dentsu Entertainment. Dentsu is a company that we’ve worked with in the past on Monsuno, specifically. We also developed a few other project ideas with them over the years. So when they approached us about doing this, I knew that I loved Mega Man. He has a deep mythology. So, we just synthesized a lot of things from his history. And yeah, we are in development right now, so we can’t go into the direction it will take.

Kelly: Our goal is to make a show that we, ourselves, would want to watch. We want a show that’s fun for us. We’re fans of the Mega Man character, so we take our love and look at the DNA of it, and go, “How do we make this cool?” So the goal is to have a really fun and exciting show.

Do you have a release date targeted?
Casey: It’s too early to say, but I do know that Mega Man’s 30th anniversary is in 2017.

  1. I am super excited about this. I hope it is awesome and has a game that will release with it.

  2. This could be cool. My oldest child will be 5, maybe he will be into it. Maybe there will be some cool toys to go along with it. I think this is a positive thing.

  3. I'm hopeful for this series, if only because I loved Ben 10 growing up, but I'd say I'm cautiously optimistic. I really hope these guys try to make something that's entertaining for all ages, and that they have a clear idea of which parts of the franchise to use. Frankly, I'd be surprised if they chose anything other than Classic; maybe some time travel episodes to the X series, but I think that's basically all they're talking about when they mention Mega Man's history.

    I'm also curious to see if they'll take any pages from the Archie Comics adaptation (which I love). I sure hope so. But anyways, I'll be sure to check this show out if I get the chance, and hopefully it'll live up to expectations.

  4. If this comes to fruition, please don't let this be like Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (which is to say not bad, but mediocre and easily forgettable).

    Just sayin'.

  5. I really want this to be a thing. Right now it sounds a lot like a pitch but I would love to be proven wrong.

    However, after reading a lot of comments about it, I hear a lot of people say they want it to be like the comics or the games. Would it really hurt to give the cartoon an identity of its own? Now that I think of it, while I certainly don't want it to be a Ruby Spears quality thing, I wouldn't mind if they did something "similar" like that. You know, something that gives it its own idenity. I don't know. I may just not want something so similar to what we've already seen before (and I know I'm in the huge minority on that). I don't want it to adapt the Archie comics. I just want it to be its own thing. That, and them getting the original voice cast from the RS cartoon back. =D Hey, with something new, maybe they could make a game based off it.

    I'm just typing my thoughts on what I hope to see. Guess I'll have to wait for more news. Gah, why'd they have to announce this so early with so little to show?? That's just bleh.
