Mega Man X Legacy 1 & 2
According to a rating from the British Board of Film Classification, the upcoming Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2 (which have yet to be announced!) will include various video materials (in a “Gallery Extras” section), such as trailers for all the games, but also… The Day of Sigma, a 24 minute OVA originally bundled with Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X, back in 2005.
Also, the release date is also listed: July 19th (obviously, it’s yet to be confirmed, and should not be taken as fact yet… rating agency listing often feature incomplete and/or incorrect data).
Mega Man animated series
Thanks to the official website of DHW media, we now have an official synopsis for the Mega Man animated series debuting later this year:
Aki Light is a regular, upbeat, robot schoolboy. He lives in the futuristic world of Silicon City, co-inhabited by robots and humans. But this robot boy has a secret… Deep within his programming lie protocols that can transform him into the powerful hero, Mega Man! When the villainous Sgt. Night and his evil team of Robot Masters emerge with ill-intentions, Mega Man dedicates himself to protecting the citizens of Silicon City. Equipped with his Mega Buster arm cannon and the ability to absorb the powers of his opponents, he bravely battles the wickedest of villains. In this brand new series inspired by the iconic Mega Man video game, comical, action-packed adventures abound as we follow the journey of Aki Light and his alter-ego, Mega Man, as he strives to balance life as an ordinary robot boy AND an amazing superhero.
