Gameside Reveals Cover Design for R20+5

We've already told you about some of the new content the revised "R20" will be getting, but now you can take a look at the cover design. This comes from Action Gameside Vol. A, which is running a special Rockman 25th anniversary spread. It's also revealed that the enhanced art book will be sporting new commemorative artwork from Miho Asada (illustrator for Battle Story Rockman EXE), Shingo Adachi (animator and director for various episodes of Mega Man NT Warrior), Hitoshi Ariga (manga artist for Mega Man Megamix/Gigamix), Shigeto Ikehara (manga artist for Rockman, Irregular Hunter Rockman X), Hideki Ishikawa (Capcom artist for various Mega Man titles), Koji Izuki (manga artist for Rockman 8, Rockman & Forte), Yoshihiro Iwamoto (manga artist for Rockman X), Yoshitaka Enamoto (manga artist, designer of Bright Man), Haruki Suetsugu (Capcom artist for the Mega Man X series, aka SENSEI), Ryo Takamisaki (manga artist for Mega Man NT Warrior), Tohru Yamanaka (illustrator for Mega Man Zero), and Jiyu Maeda (Capcom artist forThe Misadventures of Tron Bonne).

The Gameside feature itself is a pretty standard look back at the past 25 years of Mega Man, including a timeline, small blurbs about each series and particular games, some American and European box art and more. It also reprints features from past issues, including the Mega Man 10 concept artwork and a 2008 interview with Hitoshi Ariga. Finally, some best and worse. Worst three weapons: Top Spin, Hyper Bomb and Charge Kick. Best three weapons: Leaf Shield, Tornado Hold and Hard Knuckle. (Really? No Metal Blade?)
