"The original blue bomber is back for more action-packed adventures in Mega Man Gigamix! In this volume, Mega Man travels to outer space to tangle with Dr. Wily’s Robot Masters, as well as the mysterious Break Man! Then, it’s the ultimate race! Mega Man, Bass, Roll, Proto Man, Ice Man, Guts Man, and even Dr. Wily himself go head-to-head in a race that spans halfway across the globe!”
Gigamix Volume 1 is said to span 224 pages, retailing for $12.95, and has an expected shipping date of May 4th, 2011. Gigamix 2 and Gigamix 3 will ship bi-monthly thereafter.
The Gigamix manga series recently wrapped in Japan, so it was only fitting for it to make the jump stateside.
Rockman Gigamix, written and illustrated by Hitoshi Ariga, made its debut in 2009 as a bit of a homage to the revitalization of the classic series with Rockman 9. Gigamix 1 contains all new stories based off of the events of Rockman 3, Rockman 7 and Battle & Chase. Gigamix 2 and 3 focuses heavily on an intergalactic battle of epic proportions, featuring the likes of Duo and the Star Droids.
Needless to say, this is exciting news. UDON seems very, very committed to getting us more manga-goodness. I wonder what's next?
