The internet went wild for Baby Yoda in the new Star Wars series The Mandalorian, so Sega decided to follow this up recently with the reveal of Baby Sonic. These aren’t the only baby versions of notable characters that have ever existed, though.
As many pointed out, Baby Mario has been around for a long time and we even saw a Baby Crash Bandicoot in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. What about Capcom’s blue bomber Mega Man, though – does he have a baby version? Of course, he does. In fact, there’s been a baby design for him since the release of Rockman 2 (the Japanese version of Mega Man 2) in 1988.
Since the reveal of Baby Sonic, Protodude, the guy who runs the fantastic Mega Man fan site Rockman Corner, decided to remind the internet Baby Mega Man exists, by showing off official artwork featured inside the flaps of Rockman’s 2 box art. As can be seen above, there’s also an image of Mega Man as an adult wearing a jacket.
The next Mega Man game on the way to the Switch is the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to play as a baby version of the character in this release and it’s also been delayed until 25th February.
