The press release also reveals that there will be three additional covers, plus two retailer exclusive covers. Here’s the deets from the press release:
The Birth of Mega Man! In a world where humans and robots live and work together, six powerful robots have suddenly turned against their programming and set their sights on causing chaos and destruction! Only one heroic robot stands in their path – Mega Man, the greatest creation of Dr. Light!
MEGA MAN™ MASTERMIX #1 sports two standard covers — CVR A by Hitoshi Ariga and Cover B by Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz( promotional artist for Capcom’s Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2).
