IGN have revealed that the forthcoming crossover event “Worlds Unite” will feature characters from the Sonic Boom and Mega Man X universes, as well as the normal Sonic and Classic Mega Man universes!
The mini-series will be written by Ian Flynn, with covers by Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante; no interior artist has been announced as of yet. From the looks of things, the mini-series will indeed see all four universes meet; that platform Sticks is standing on in the promo is the Item-1 of the Classic Mega Man series.
Archie Action editor Paul Kaminski said the following:
“The Sonic Boom comic series is part of the latest multi-media initiative from Sega, which includes video games, toys, and an all-new TV series on cartoon Network! Mega Man X has been a staple of video game culture for decades, and we were thrilled to begin exploring that futuristic universe in 2014’s Dawn of X storyline in the Mega Man comics! How will the slapstick antics of the ever-paranoid Sticks the Badger measure up against the futuristic action of X and the Maverick Hunters? Pick up Worlds Unite, starting this spring from Archie Action, to find out! And this is only the tip of the iceberg…”
Worlds Unite is set to kick off in Spring 2015, and you can be sure I’ll be grabbing it as soon as possible; thank goodness for import shops!
