playing cards later this Fall. Now you too can enjoy a game of poker with the likes of X the Ace, General the King, and Iris the Queen. Yes, I miss news of real Mega Man games too.
GE Animation, the folks behind a number of misc. Mega Man merchandise as of late, intend to release the cards to specialty retailers on September 15, priced at $5.99. Characters revealed thus far are X, Zero, Maverick Double, the General and Iris. Wouldn't be too surprised to see Colonel and a few Mavericks thrown into the mix.
GE has been on a bit of a merchandising blitz lately, slapping Mega's face onto practically everything. I highly doubt these playing cards will be the last of random merchandise they put out... almost makes me wonder what's next. Underwear? Yeah... yeah, I could go for that.
