Official Press Release
Of all the characters in CAPCOMÂ®’s vast videogame library, arguably none is more recognizable worldwide than Mega Manâ„¢. With more than 100 video games to his name, Mega Man is among the most iconic figures of gaming, but despite this, the original blue bomber’s Japanese manga adventures have never been available to English readers. UDON has decided to rectify that, with the release of Mega Manâ„¢ Megamix Vol. 1 in January 2010.
Written and drawn by mangaka Hitoshi Ariga, the Megamix manga is a 3-volume series beloved for its stupendous artwork and exciting stories. Outside of Japan, Mega Man fans have dreamed of one day being able to enjoy these adventures… and now they finally can!
The series features appearances by all the franchise regulars like Proto Man, Dr. Wily, Dr. Light, Bass & Treble, Rush, Roll, and tons of villainous Robot Masters! UDON has gone directly to Megamix creator Hitoshi Ariga to obtain the original artwork files for the series, and ensure the best localization possible. Each volume of Megamix is also packed with character profiles, sketches, gag strips, and creator interviews. This is a series no Mega Man fan would dare miss out on!
Mega Man Megamix Vol.1 arrives January 27th, 2010 everywhere manga is sold. For more updates stay tuned to www.UDONentertainment.com.
