It’s been over three years since we first learned that the team behind
Ben 10 is making a Mega Man cartoon. The show was originally planned to launch in 2017 before getting pushed back to a late 2018 release. We still haven’t seen a full trailer for Mega Man: Fully Charged yet, but that’s changing soon.
Capcom and Man of Action will be holding a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, giving us lots of new details and our first real look at the show. The panel will be held on Friday, July 20th at 6:00 PM Pacific Time / 9:00 PM Eastern. Here’s the official breakdown of what you can expect:
“Kazuhiro Tsuchiya (CAPCOM, video game producer, Mega Man, Asura’s Wrath), Man of Action (creators of
Ben 10 and the team and characters of Big Hero 6), and Logan McPherson (DHX Studios, VP, creative and animated production, Slugterra, The Deep, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2D series)) give a behind-the-scenes peek into the production of this new animated show, aimed at kids 5 to11. Celebrating the 30-year legacy of this iconic, game-based character, the panelists will discuss the background and creative evolution of the new series, followed by screening of never-before-seen footage from the show, coming soon to Cartoon Network.”
Mega Man: Fully Charged follows the journey of Aki Light and his alter-ego, Mega Man, as he strives to balance life as an ordinary robot boy and an amazing superhero. The show is set in Silicon City, and a new villain named Sgt. Night will apparently replace Dr. Wiley as the primary antagonist. You can catch the series later this year on Cartoon Network.
