Signs Point to UDON Nabbing Gigamix (Pretty Much Confirmed)

Although we haven't gotten an official notice from UDON yet, we have a pretty good indication they have picked up Rockman Gigamix, Hitoshi Ariga's most recent Rockman manga. UDON's distributor, Diamond Book Distributors, has Mega Man Gigamix listed among their June 2011 releases, under the ISBN 978-1-926778-23-5. Sounds pretty definitive if you ask me, but we will seek word from UDON in the meantime. For the uninitiated, Rockman Gigamix is a new three volume manga series from Hitoshi Ariga, and features stories surrounding Mega Man 3, the Stardroids and Duo. The second volume had a contest where many people's user submitted robots were used in a brief scene.

It's certainly something to look forward to!

Thanks for the tip, super sigma!

Update: Diamond's catalog contains volume 1's localized cover, as well as this flavor text:

"The original blue bomber is back for more action-packed adventures in Mega Man Gigamix! In this volume, Mega Man travels to outer space to tangle with Dr. Wily's Robot Masters, as well as the mysterious Break Man! Then, it's the ultimate race! Mega Man, Bass, Roll, Proto Man, Ice Man, Guts Man, and even Dr. Wily himself go head-to-head in a race that spans halfway across the globe!"

The volume is 224 pages, will retail for $12.95, and has an expected shipping date of May 4th, 2011. All three volumes are expected to ship bimonthly (every two months I gather).
