I've tried looking around but I have failed miserably to find it myself. Who is the artist behind the box art for the US release of the first Mega Man?

Bad Box megaman

While we do not have the name, we do know who the person was and why it turned out like it did. Here's from an interview with the American MM team:

Quote:

The president of Capcom US said to his marketing guy: "We need a cover done tomorrow". He went out and got a friend of his to do it in like 6 hours.

  • Oh gosh, it was worth waiting 4 and a half year for this answer. Too bad it's not better sourced in the video itself but I think that's the best we'll get. – Maurycy Feb 28 '20 at 8:55
  • Thanks, not quite the epitome answer but better than nothing I hope. The name may surface one day (unless the author is hiding in shame : P) – Coreus Mar 3 '20 at 15:10
