Two short days after Mega Man's 19th anniversary comes the news that the first six games in the original series will be released to iOS and Android soon. No set release date is available yet, but interested players can pre-register to be notified whenever that happens!
UPDATE: The games will be launching next month, in January. A first trailer is now available.

Fresh off the (virtual) press, the first details on the upcoming Mega Man TV series have surfaced on Capcom Unity. Here's the basic setting of the upcoming show:
"The new animated Mega Man series will follow Aki Light � a normal, upbeat, and above all optimistic young school-aged robot living in Silicon City. He soon learns that deep within his programming are secret protocols that allow him to transform � giving him nanocore armor, a Mega Buster, and the iconic helmet to turn him into a superhero � Mega Man!
Promising exciting new technologies and new robots, the series will follow the adventures and trials of Aki Light � a.k.a. Mega Man � as he faces off against threats to Silicon City, while trying to keep his superhero identity a secret and maintain a normal robot schoolkid life. "
The series is scheduled to air next year, to mark a reboot of sorts of the series that lines up with its 30th anniversary.

The clock keeps on ticking, and the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's Lab turns 16 today!
Once again, the past year has been rather quiet for the franchise as a whole. The Mega Man Legacy Collection has been released on multiple platforms, giving players a chance to replay the earliest six games of the original series. Unfortunately, Archie's ongoing Mega Man comic series was also put in hiatus, which is likely to turn either in an outright cancellation, or a reboot to go along Capcom's upcoming Mega Man TV series. That's set to debut next year, and one can likely look forward to a tie-in game or two, yet to be announced.
Thank you for being around to this day!

Belenus Maverick was kind enough to send in six new pieces of Fan Art, all based on characters from the original series. They can all be viewed in the gallery. As a reminder, you're also able to comment on all items in that section to share your thoughts!
