Mega Man: Fully Charged heads to South East Asia
The Blue Bomber’s newest animated adventures have arrived in Asia. Disney XD premiered Mega Man: Fully Charged across its South East Asian channels on June 3rd. To celebrate its launch, the show is airing daily across multiple slots.
Created for kids 6 to 11, and their parents who grew up loving the video games, Mega Man: Fully Charged features exciting new technologies and robots, and the introduction of Mega Man’s alter-ego, Aki Light, a normal, upbeat, schoolboy robot with nano-core technology that allows him to transform into the mega-powered hero Mega Man! With his Mega Buster arm cannon and iconic helmet, Mega Man battles the wickedest villains Silicon City has to offer. Beloved characters, such as Mega Man’s robotic dog, Rush, will return – while new characters, like Mega Mini and Suna Light, will make their debut!
Produced by DHX Studios Vancouver in conjunction with Dentsu Entertainment USA, Capcom and Man of Action, Mega Man: Fully Charged debuted last August in the United States on Cartoon Network. The 52 x 11-minute show has since aired in Canada on Family Chrgd and in the United Kingdom on Pop.
The first season of the series has recently wrapped up its broadcast in the United States. No word on a second season as of yet. DHX Media distributes the show in all territories outside of Asia, where Dentsu is responsible.
Jakks Pacific recently launched its line of action figures based on the show in the United States. An international rollout is expected to occur throughout the year.
