If you thought the AI-enhanced version from a few years back was impressive, what till ya get a load of this.
Through the magic of Adobe Animate, MASJ faithfully reanimated Mega Man 8's opening cutscene in 4K HD. No machine learning, upscaling or interpolation here. The whole piece was redrawn by hand, frame by frame.
But wait, there's a little more! MASJ has the Japanese version in 4K too. It comes complete with Ganasia's delightful "Electrical Communication" theme.
Without access to the cutscene's original cels (by animation studio Xebec), this is probably the closest we'll ever get to a genuine remaster. One YouTube comment really sums it up: "It's like putting on glasses."
That said, well done, MASJ! I guess you'll be tackling X4 next, right? Please?
