It looks like Mega Man is joining the Japanese police. Capcom recently announced that the blue bomber is going to be used as an ambassador for a crime prevention awareness program in partnership with the Osaka Police Force.
Capcom has worked with the Osaka police since 2013 to develop awareness campaigns. This year, the focus is on awareness surrounding phishing sites that trick users to gain personal account information like credit card numbers.
This coincides with this week’s launch of Mega Man 11, the first numbered Mega Man sequel since 2010. The character has been a mainstay of Capcom’s branding for more than 30 years, and as it happens, he’s a bit of a boy scout known for wearing blue. Pairing him with a good-natured police awareness campaign makes sense.
