Following yesterday's release of the first ever trailer of Mega Man: Fully Charged, Dentsu Entertainment has followed up with another new trailer, this time to preview the series' debut episode “Throwing Shade Pt. 1.”
Coming in at two minutes and 43 seconds, said trailer is more like an extended preview than your classic trailer, offering up a sizeable look at the episode, and not only what to expect from it, but from the series in general.
In “Throwing Shade Pt. 1 ,” Mega Man takes on Fire Man, who is irate about how robots are treated. More specifically, Fire Man is mad that the HR department of his former employer suggested he become a fry cook after messing up on his construction job.
And that narrative snippet is indicative of the rest of the trailer, which is packed full of witty, light-hearted jokes. Like, a lot of jokes.
In addition to Fire Man, the trailer also introduces a ton of other friends (and even a few foes) of Mega Man, including Mega Mini, the tiny robot who lives inside Aki's head, and who is one sassy little guy.
Reception to the trailer seems to be substantially more positive than yesterday's trailer, though it still seems somewhat divisive among the Mega Man fan community.
Anyway, if you're interested, you can read a story synopsis for the series below:0comments
