Whilst there hasn’t really been anything confirmed game wise for the series Capcom has been celebrating with soundtracks, 3DS eShop releases and now… with a official art book in North America.
The standard edition of the book, the full title of which is “MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works” will set you back $60.00 through Amazon and will come with 432 pages packed full with official artwork covering both the original Mega Man and Mega Man X franchises.

Featuring over 400 pages of official game art, concept designs and sketches, rare pin-ups, and all-new tribute art, this is a stunning art book collection that every fan of the Blue Bomber will want on their shelves.
