Mega Man 10/Rockman 10 boxart by Laura (click for much, much bigger image). This is the winning entry in the American version of the Mega Man 10 boxart contest — the Japanese winners were announced in May. It is also so, so cute.
Concept art from Mega Man 10’s Nitro Man and Commando Man stage, printed in Gameside magazine. Before they were 8-bit backgrounds, the artists at Inti Creates rendered the game’s stages in this totally awesome artwork. I hope someone posts concept art for the other stages (preferably Gameside, so I don’t feel terrible about it).

Winning fan-made Rockman 10 boxart by Y.K. Yes, it’s another official Mega Man art contest — and another Capcom post. The winner received a bunch of swag, including Mega Man Kubrick toys, a t-shirt and cap, and, most importantly, a printed version of this box.
A couple more selections from the contest:
This game has so many boxes now! And, being a digital release, none of them hold the actual game! The one that’s full of sweets is still my favorite, mostly because it’s full of sweets.
Mega Man t-shirts by Inti Creates. Obviously, the “you are Mega Man” design is cute, but it’s my least favorite of the three. The “ladder” shirt is unexpectedly classy for a Mega Man t-shirt, and the other one finally gives us an “official” onomatopoeia for the sound of Mega Man dying.
If you want one of these … good luck with that. Inti Creates will randomly pick five winners for each shirt from applications included with copies of the Rockman 10 Image Soundtrack.

“Nitro Rider” from the Rockman 10 Image Soundtrack. Inti Creates posted four samples from the arranged Mega Man 10 soundtrack, which also happens to have fantastic cover art:
Proto Man’s bass is made from his shield! Mega Man’s guitar is made from his dog!
Here’s the original Nitro Man track, by the way:

Mega Man 9’s Splash Woman and Mega Man 10’s Blade Man in inexplicable yakuza-style fanart by P-Ro. Check out the detailing on Splash Woman’s clothes — how the scale pattern transitions to waves.
That seems like something of an illogical position from which to work on someone’s back tattoo, but what do I know? I’m no robot tattoo artist.
If you’re interested in yakuza stuff, check out the Japan Subculture Research Center, a group blog on which Tokyo Vice author Jake Adelstein posts some yakuza-related topics. Also, read Tokyo Vice. Also, play the Yakuza games. I mean, that one’s obvious.

“Rockman 10: Menace from Space” by Uka. This image would be a pretty compelling alternative to the official “boxart” released by Capcom of Japan.
Shocking confession time: despite being all “yay Mega Man” and posting Mega Man fanarts on Tiny all the time, I haven’t actually purchased Mega Man 10 yet. For one thing, I’m still loaded down with games, and thus don’t feel any particular need to buy more. And, uh, I tried the Mega Man 10 demo and died a bunch. I’m not feeling quite up to a Mega Man yet.

Mega Man 10 artwork. If you were looking for the image from the mockup Mega Man 10 boxart featured on the “Rockmanjuu” package (and I’m basically talking to myself here), here it is, in a size suitable for desktop wallpaper.
It sort of recalls the PlayStation’s Rockman 6 box (and the Famicom Rockman 6 box, a little), in which the gang stood in space with a planet in the background — only, this time, the planet is above them, and they’re all just sort of standing there on nothing. Robots can do that.
Lost Mega Man 10 commercial from the 1980s.
“He’s blue, and he knows what to do!
He’s much more than a maaaan!”
Televisions back then were much more prone to video game-induced explosions.

Mega Man manjuu (“Rockmanjuu”). Not only are manjuu, like anything filled with sweet bean paste, super-delicious, these are presented in replica Rockman and Rockman 10 boxes. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the Japanese Rockman 10 boxart before!
Capcom is stepping up the merchandise for Mega Man 10. Capcom USA is even handing out free t-shirts and posters with purchases at the Nintendo World Store this weekend as part of a Mega Man 10 launch party! If you’re lucky enough to be nearby, go get stuff!
As it did for the release of Mega Man 9, Japanese gaming site Inside-Games has updated with a full Mega Man 10 makeover. Not only do you get to stare at those adorable Mega Man faces next to every icon, there’s also a pop-up music player at the top of the page, and more pithy little slogans to read upon every refresh! Examples include “It’s timing! Timing!”, “Mega Man 10 in 2010!”, and “I’ll meet you all on three different platforms!”
I’d like these full-site advertising makeovers a lot more if they all had this much care put into them. And if they were all about Mega Man.
