There is new information on the Mega Man animated series that is slated to launch in 2017 for Mega Man’s 30th anniversary. Firstly, there is a picture showing how Mega Man will look in the show. The picture can be seen below.
Secondly, we have learned more about the show’s premise. The Mega Man animated series is targeted towards “kids 6 to 9, as well as their parents who grew up loving the video games” and will feature “exciting new technologies and robots”. However, the show’s plot is about Aki Light, who is a “normal, upbeat, and above all optimistic young school-aged robot living in Silicon City”. He discovers that deep within his programming are “secret protocols that allow him to transform”, which gives him “nanocore armor, a Mega Buster, and the iconic helmet to turn him into the superhero that is Mega Man”. Our hero must contend with “threats to Silicon City, while trying to keep his superhero identity a secret and maintain a normal robot school kid life”.
