Well, this exists.
As Coming Soon reports, DHX Media Ltd. and Dentsu Entertainment USA, Inc. are developing a new Mega Man animated series. It’s slated for 2017 to mark the series 30th anniversary. The series will follow Mega Man’s new alter-ego, Aki Light, who is a school boy robot outfitted with super armour.
The above Mega Man is how the character will apparently appear on the show (Capcom also posted it on its Unity Blog).
What does the internet think so far? Let’s have a quick look!
watch capcom throw mega man back into the vault because everyone thinks this cartoon looks hideous
"first you want mega man now you don't??"

Those upset at the Mega Man cartoon look fail to realize how it could be so much worse pic.twitter.com/5BPWVCBfb4

So I did a really quick take on that Mega Man design, I'd probably go through and tweak more but I don't have time pic.twitter.com/wYSaDz5Vrd

That new Mega Man cartoon looks like Capcom saw yesterday's Mighty No.9 trailer and sneered, "Oh yeah, Inafune? We can top THAT."

So many great Mega Man designs and yet Capcom was like "nah let's look at Flash animation in 2007" for the cartoon pic.twitter.com/hmMpZprEY2

Maybe it's just me, but I think if just his face had a more classic look then the new Mega Man wouldn't look so bad. pic.twitter.com/0qxNicTO2P
