The 25th Anniversary of Mega Man has seen the series honoured in myriad ways, from a spot reserved for the Blue Bomber in the next Super Smash Bros. to, um, a Rush tissue pouch. The main thing that really seems to have been missing is an actual new game for Mega Man to call his own.

One such game is now on its way! The catch is, it’s a phsyical board game.

Jasco Games has announced it will be producing an officially licensed Mega Man board game that should arrive late this year or early 2014. Jasco is also making Mega Man sets for its Universal Fighting System Collectible Card Game.

It’s still not a new videogame, but a Mega Man board game may be worth keeping an eye on. Tabletop gaming has seen a significant resurgence in the past few years, and if it looks as impressive as the upcoming BioShock Infinite board game, it could be worth owning.

Does fighting Dr. Wily on your table sound like an interesting proposition to you? Let us know below.
