Plenty of months have passed since we published the Mega Man roadmap for the first half of 2019. Since then, plenty of things have been announced to be released in the second part of the year. It's time time to give the roadmap an update!
Next month, two new Nendoroid figures – X and the Rabbit Ride Armor – join the already big line-up of Rockman Nendoroid. In July, we will get the Shingo Adachi Artworks, an artbook compiling the most notable work of this famous animator and character designer. Shingo Adachi has worked on a plethora of Rockman projects from the animated scenes in Maverick Hunter X, Mega Man X4 and Mega Man 8 to the anime series of Rockman.EXE Axess, Rockman.EXE Beast+, Rockman.EXE Stream, Rockman.EXE: Hikari to Yami no Program (movie) and Ryūsei no Rockman Tribe. While the book is about his career and not entirely focused on Rockman, the book is expected to have 272 pages. I think we can expect a good amount of pages dedicated to our favorite blue robot/Net Navi.
UDON Entertainment are reprinting the Mega Man Zero and Mega Man Battle Network Complete Works in June and August respectively. This is very much welcome not only for the quality of the books, but also because nobody wants to pay ridiculous prices for the old paperback versions at auction.

In August and September, Kotobukiya launches their new model kits. It's the long-awaited come back after they released model kits of Mega Man, Proto Man, Roll and Zero so many years ago. A third model kit has been announced already (Rockman X3 Max Armor) but with no release date yet. If the line is successful, they intend to expand the line-up so you better buy them!
September 11th, 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the Ruby Spears Mega Man cartoon. While nothing official has been announced to commemorate the show, it undoubtedly has a place in Mega Man history. You can expect to see lots of fan-related works!
And before wintertime comes, we will have the chance to relive two classics, Mega Man: The Wily Wars and Mega Man The Power Battle are re-releasing on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis mini console and the mammoth plug-and-play Capcom Home Arcade, respectively.
Before you raise your fist and scream, "No games!" do know that, something is coming... albeit it won't be a console game.
Let us know if you are planning to add any of these goods to your collection in the comments!
