So last Saturday, I'm watching the season finale of ScrewAttack's "The Industry," in part because they decided to use that as the place to reveal the next match-up for their "Death Battle" series. It was kind of subtle, at first, as a match-up is shown on a smartphone screen for a brief moment. Since the whole episode was about the "Death Battle" hard drive with all the match-ups for the next year being stolen, I figured it was just going to be one of many, but no -- that one match was, of course, the match.
And what a match! Mega Man vs. Astro Boy? Should be a lot of fun. "Should I post about this?" I thought to myself. "Nah, there will be more to come. People will probably just want me to wait for the full episode to come out," I reasoned, forgetting about the slow burn that led up to the battle of armies between Dr. Wily and Dr. Eggman (still waiting on what feels like an obvious follow-up to that).
Then ScrewAttack rolled out their promo for Mega Man... and in came the tips. And more tips. So many tips! Clearly a miscalculation on my part, but who am I to ignore such demand?
So here is Mega Man's promo video for the upcoming "Death Battle":
I'll follow up with Astro Boy's when it becomes available, and of course, the "Death Battle" episode itself when the time comes. For now, you can begin your debates over who will win and why in the comments below.
Thanks to everyone who sent in their tips for this! It's the only way I'll learn.
