Can Mega Man jump higher than Sonic? Is Sega's blue hedgehogedgehog faster than Flash Man? We'll all find out next year, thanks to Archie Comics.
The Capcom and Sega mascots have both had long-running series published by Archie for many years now but the upcoming 2013 crossover marks the first time that the heroes will be meeting. Executive Director of Editorial Paul Kaminski said the following in a press release:
"We've been gearing up for this for years. From the moment we had Mega Man at Archie, we knew we wanted to bring Sonic and the Blue Bomber together. It's a big budget movie featuring two of the most storied video game
franchises. This has never happened before. We're making history here, and it's going to knock people for a loop. This is what comics are all about – drama, fun, action and tons of surprises. Fans will not be disappointed."
Come back for more info on the Sonic/Mega Man crossover later today during Kotaku's Panel Discussion programming block.
