Dentsu Entertainment USA and DHX Media have struck a global deal to develop, co-produce, distribute and jointly manage licensing for the new Mega Man animated series which was originally announced last summer. Man of Action Entertainment (Ben 10, Generator Rex, Big Hero 6) is executive producing the series that’s based on the classic video game franchise.

Under the terms of the deal, Dentsu Entertainment USA and DHX (Teletubbies, Yo Gabba Gabba!, the Degrassi franchise) will manage all global rights for the Mega Man animated series and will handle distribution and licensing in the U.S. Parent company Dentsu Inc, a leading Japanese animation producer and ad agency, will handle distribution and licensing in Asia, with DHX managing distribution and licensing in all other territories.

The original video game series was launched by Capcom in 1987. It followed the robot Mega Man who battled varying enemies across different environments while collecting new, strange weapons as he sought to defeat the nefarious Dr. Wily.

Aimed at kids 6 to 9, as well as parents who grew up playing the video games, the series will follow Mega Man’s newly-introduced alter-ego, Aki Light, a normal, upbeat, schoolboy robot who, when activated, re-forms into a suit of impenetrable armor. Other characters from the games and new characters, including Mega Mini, will also be featured.

The Mega Man animated series is set to air sometime in 2017, timed with the franchise’s 30th anniversary.

looks like it'll be an awful 3D CGI Shell Shaded cartoon that won't actually be that bad, but will still be boring.

Ugh. You had one job, Capcom. ONE JOB! Make a nostalgia trip that appeals to adults and something cool for the kids today. What should be a timeless character keeps getting these redesigns no one wanted, and likely isn't needed.

Perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane.

Megaman looks as dead on the inside as the rest of his series

I actually always wanted a cartoon of the regular life of Mega Man (maybe I should watch Astro Boy). Rock and Roll seem really cute. But I have no faith in this cartoon, and making him a school boy just makes it sound more generic.

In less than 24 hours, two related series have committed suicide publicly. How hard is this, guys?!

That art is pretty awful.
People complain about Adventure Time and Steven Universe having bad art
they're wrong
but how can you complain when generic stuff like this is still so common. Doesn't even look like they tried.

SHIIIIT THIS LOOK SO BAAAAAD.
Couldn't they stick with the SSB4 design which would also be kids friendly ?
