The sheer amount of our seemingly discarded franchises that remain popular South of the Border never ceases to amaze me. Just last week I had my mind blown by the baffling announcement of a new theatrical, 3D film starring Hanna-Barbera’s Top Cat, who’s apparently found life-after-Boomerang following a decade-long stateside irrelevance. Then along comes this billboard, which while considerably less official, is… if I may resurrect some freshman year Spanish, *ahem* “muy mucho spectacularios!”

These images have been making the rounds on Spanish-speaking blogs for some time now, but they’ve only just come to my, and more importantly, Capcom’s attention, very recently. Again… there hasn’t been a new Mega Man X game in damn near seven years (give or take a Collection.) Does the “Hombre de Roca Equis” still hold that much sway over the Mexican populace? Hmmm... perhaps Capcom should look into a future ambassadorship before equipping the Gavel Cease-and-Desister Weapon (earned following the defeat of Mega Man X6 boss, Legal Beagle. Know your Mega Man history, folks!)
