Video game fans will know well Mega man, the humanoid robot protagonist of the Capcom series of the same name. Let's discover together the recently rediscovered images that were created for the production of an anime that was never completed.
The hero first appeared on the console in 1987 Nintendo Entertainment System and from that moment began his struggle against the numerous opponents that the evil Dr. Wily who wanted to rule the world. In the years Capcom has developed numerous games for the franchise and it appears that a new Mega Man title is currently in production.
As is so often the case in Japan Souls were produced with the blue robot as the protagonist, but some have recently been found Artwork in relation to work that has never seen the light.
Through Protodude's tweet reported at the bottom of the news, we see the pictures Representation of the main characters of the series. In the drawing of the first photo, Mega Man appears in the foreground and behind him the faces of Protoman, Dr. Wily, Dr. Light and Roll. In the next two shots, you'll also see some of the hero's main opponents.
The author of the post points out that it is not clear whether the animated product in which the images should have been used was actually deleted or whether they are from a prototype of the anime produced in 90s from Capcom in collaboration with the American Ruby Spears Productions.
What do you think of the artwork? Let us know in the comments.
Finally, I remember when a new comic series was announced for Mega Man.
We received never-before-seen materials for an undeveloped Mega Man anime from the '90s ... OR a very early incarnation of the Ruby Spears cartoon.
We're going to scan these pieces for EVERYONE to enjoy. Researching their history is also on the agenda.
Thank you all! https://t.co/1qKBJdX1ZP pic.twitter.com/VBTYZdAlHk- Brian (@Protodude) January 23, 2021
