Look familiar? Those of who were alive at the time the original Mega Man came out might remember this particular cover. See the resemblance? We doubt the Mega Man 9 artwork above invoke anything but nonchalance from gamers -- you either love it or hate it.

In celebration of Mega Man going backwards in time, Capcom got I Am 8-bit artist Gerald de Jesus to create a cover for the blue bomber's upcoming outing. Fortunately, the game will be distributed digitally, so the cover will never see the light of day. That is, unless you plan to buy one of the t-shirts Capcom will be releasing shortly for sale. Nothing says "chick magnet" better than this, baby!
