Looks like this little tidbit slipped underneath my radar:
Japanese magazine GameSide commemorated the release of Rockman 9 with stunning artwork of the Rockman 9 cast, illustrated by none other than Megamix author Hitoshi Ariga. The piece, spanning across a two paged pin-up, is limited to 2,000 copies of the issue.
In addition, Ariga san sat down with the editors of the magazine to reveal an unpublished Megamix manuscript. No details regarding its contents, I'll be keeping an eye out on such a rarity.
Oh, free internet cookie to anyone who can make that image into a banner. (*cough* 1085 x 142 *cough*)
