Sizzling circuits! Looks like cautiously optimistic fans of super fighting robots will have to wait a bit longer for the blue bomber’s controversial return to network television. Originally set to debut later this year, a report by Dentsu Entertainment announced that the lukewarmly anticipated Mega Man animated series has officially been pushed back to 2018.

There’s also been a distribution shakeup, with the show now officially airing on Cartoon Network instead of Disney XD in the United States. Reasons for the switch up are vague at the moment.

As for the delay itself, the report failed to provide any further information. While we could sit here all day assuming the worst and fanning the flames of speculation, I’m reminded of Miyamoto-san’s words of wisdom: “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.” Here’s hoping the same remains true for televised video game adaptations.
