Mega Man: Fully Charged Premiere Date Announced

With Mega Man: Fully Charged's presence at the San Diego Comic-Con this week, we knew that details about the soon-to-air cartoon's schedule would have to surface sooner or later. As it turns out, it was sooner.

According to a press release from DHX Media, the series will begin its run on Cartoon Network in the United States on Sunday, August 5th, though no specific time slot was announced. Two  days prior, however, there will be ten episodes available to view on demand through the Cartoon Network app, as well as the various Video On Demand (VOD) and on-demand streaming platforms of TV providers across the country.

Canadians, meanwhile, will have to wait until sometime in the Fall of 2018 for the series to come to DHX Television's Family Channel.

DHX Media will also be using their WildBrain YouTube network to provide clips and trailers for new episodes on a dedicated Mega Man: Fully Charged "fan hub" channel.

A slight update to the San Diego Comic-Con festivities was also given:

  • Exclusive Mega Man: Fully Charged artwork signing on Friday, July 20, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. PT, with Man of Action Entertainment's Joe Casey and Steven T. Seagle, Executive Producers/Story Editors of Mega Man: Fully Charged, and Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, producer of Mega Man® 11, Asura's Wrath™, at the Capcom booth (#215), where fans can also play the all-new video game launching October 2, 2018.
  • Event exclusive merchandise made available from Toynami (Booth #3229). While visiting Toynami, don't forget to snap a selfie with a life-sized Mega Man statue – and share it on social media with friends and family, with hashtag #MegaManFullyCharged
  • Limited-edition Mega Man: Fully Charged artwork by pop artist Jose Emroca Flores (Booth #4722).

The press release also mentions the upcoming merchandise from Jakks Pacific in the spring of 2019. "The upcoming line from master toy licensee JAKKS Pacific includes action figures, figurines, playsets and accessories, role-play items, and everyday dress-up and Halloween costumes."

Finally, here's the latest description for the cartoon itself:

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!
