Discotek's Mega Man cartoon re-release will feature retro box art

The Ruby Spears Mega Man cartoon may be infamous, but it's also incredibly hard to collect these days. The old DVDs are out of print and hard to find, and each of the two sets will run you around $50 used. But publisher ...

Learn why the voice acting from Mega Man 8 and X4 was so bad photo
Learn why the voice acting from Mega Man 8 and X4 was so bad
by Chris Carter

Christopher Niosi runs a series on YouTube called "Did You Know Voice Acting?" and this week he covers the storied Mega Man series across multiple forms of media. There's a lot of cool tidbits for fans in here -- like for instance, did you know that Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath supposedly voiced Spark Man in an episode of the Ruby Spears cartoon?

My favorite part though is easily the explanation of why Mega Man 8 and X4 have such terrible voice acting. Click the below video for a taste of the horror.

At BitSummit today, Inti Creates and Keiji Inafune announced a brand new side-scrolling adventure called Azure Striker: Gunvolt. It's coming this summer to the 3DS via Nintendo's eShop.

Listen up, Mega Man fans: Keiji Inafune is the Executive Producer, and Yoshihisa Tsuda (Mega Man X2, Mega Man 7, 9, 10, and more) is the Game Director. Yoshitaka Hatakeyama (Mega Man 9) is on art, while Takuya Aizu (several Mega Man games, as well as Mighty No. 9) acts as Producer. Finally, Ippo Yamada is over music and sound effects.

Naturally, we ran over to see it immediately.
