Old design:

Looks like a nice blend of classic, X, and... Tron.

I like it.

Finally Mega Man makes his triumphant return

I predict this cartoon will be successful and the face of the series going forward. Leaving all old fans in the dust outside rerelease and cameos.

Wait... we're not talking about how the initial design changed for a tv show for the better in the 80's?
WTF is the abomination in the OP then?

I think that looks awful quite frankly. There's nothing about that design I find appealing.

It looks less like the design changed and more like it's drawn with something other than MS Paint now.

It's not that bad, but Americanized Mega Man still has my stomach churning somehow.

It looks slightly better and has more a "Megaman X" feel than the previous one but it still looks bad.
But going from 2/10 to 4/10 is a progress I guess, though in the end since not a single person of the targeted audience is there we won't know until it airs if it's good or not as a character design for the product it is.

EDIT : Lol in fact almost nothing changed for the design, it just has more lighting projected on the model

They're both awful. They look like they were designed to be in a mobile app game and altered enough to avoid getting sued.

It's an improvement but the size of his head still bothers me. I don't mind super deformed characters but it doesn't really work in this art style.

The problem with that is the art style the show is going for. The western look as of late for child animated tv shows isn't lending itself well to action kids fair I say.
The new Ben 10 looks similar to this, and I find that ugly as well.

I remember seeing that old design before when it was claimed to be the potential new design for a Mega Man reboot game. Hated then and hate it now.

I mean, the new one does look a little better... But the character body proportions are still janky.

Nintendo nailed the design perfectly...



Why can't Capcom take notes?

It just hurts my eyes at what they are doing with this. I don't know what Ben 10 is, but I probably agree with you.

I guess it looks slightly better. Why can we just not get this as the design instead.
