New Rockman Megamix Reprint Details

Courtesy of Capcom of Japan's online store e-Capcom, we have a couple more details concerning additional content in the upcoming Rockman Megamix reprints:

- Both volumes will contain new commentary by Keiji Inafune, Ippo Yamada (series composer) and Yoshihiro Iwamoto (Rockman X comic illustrator).

- Panels/illustrations of lower quality from previous editions have been corrected by Ariga himself. (pictured)

All in all, the new editions of Megamix are shaping up to be a real treat. With any luck, we'll get these on our shores someday...


  1. Oh noes, its still in japanese lol

  2. The one on the left looks a bit older kind of, but i still don't see a reason to edit such a minor detail on that.

  3. perhaps the artist wasn't pleased with how it looks now and decided to change it. Many artists often look back on their old works and see how imperfect or flawed certain elements are. Inafune himself said that if someone today submitted to him something that was what he drew back when he began working with Capcom, he would tell them, "no way. this sucks. try again." It could be the same with Ariga.

  4. I think it's a pretty big difference IMO. It looks like two totally different people except for the clothes. When I first saw it, I thought the one on the left was Aeris from FF7.

  5. I really hope LA's Kinokuniya stocks these.

  6. Looks better. Weird face detail on before is wierd.
