"Mega Man of Action" No More; New Cartoon is Now "Fully Charged"

Just shy of two full years ago, I took a look at Man of Action Entertainment's upcoming Mega Man cartoon and, upon seeing how different it would be from any of the games, decided to begin denoting it with a more distinct title so as to avoid confusion. And the answer was right in their name; thus, "Mega Man of Action" was born. It didn't exactly catch on the way "Classic" did, but it did the job for my purposes here.

Recently, it would seem that the folks behind the animated series either reached the same conclusion, got sick of seeing me call it that, or potentially even both. In either case, the new Mega Man cartoon now has a new name that distinguishes it from anything that came before it.

According to page 62 of the Summer 'Vegas' 2018 edition of Licensing Source Book Europe, the new series will now be called "Mega Man: Fully Charged". While it might seem like it could simply be a different name for Europe, given the name of the publication, it's "Vegas" title and that the text only notes a U.S. release on Cartoon Network this autumn seems to indicate that's the name we'll see on these shores.

The cartoon is slated to be shown off at the licensing expo between May 22nd and May 24th.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to see if there's an easy way to retroactively change a tag here.
