Mega Manboy

22. April 2008 // Comment // Filed under: ,

Everyone knows that Mega Man’s Japanese name is Rock Man. Without knowing the secondary characters’ Japanese names, some people don’t know that its Rock – as in Rock n’ Roll (Roll, being his hot sister’s name). Both names are fitting. To think that “Mighty Kid” and “Knuckle Kid” were considered. Then again, he is a kid, or atleast he looks like one. We have all seen what Mega Man looks like as a “man.”

Mega Man never looked so bad! Well, he almost has. It seems poor interpretations of the game art and theme wasn’t limited to the U.S. release. The European boxart was a closer match. But they went downhill with Mega Man 2, what happened? Who is that silver guy with a giant vibrator for an arm? Everything started to improve with MM3, a little. I think we all would have been better off with the original famicon boxart. Or better yet, any of these:

The boxart that should have been.
