Let's watch 27 minutes of Rockman commercials!


2:00 PM on 11.23.2012



Thanksgiving is over, which means it's time to shift gears and focus on the next major celebration: the 25th anniversary of Mega Man! My writing output, which was already very Mega Man-heavy, is poised to become even more "mega mannish" in the coming weeks, so get ready!

Here are 27 straight minutes of commercials for nearly every major Mega Man title in every sub-series. Technically, the bulk of these are Japanese Rockman commercials, which far and away kick the crap out of the ones we saw in the States. It's amazing how many featured original animation and music just for a 30-second spot. I love the blend of hand-drawn art and 90s-era CG in those early X spots, and I kind of want an entire OVA done in the style of the Zero ads!

There are quite a few games missing from this massive montage, but I doubt you are going to find a more comprehensive collection anywhere else. Which commercials are your favorite?
