Title - Capcom to sell intentionally awful Mega Man 9 shirts
Source - Joystiq

In keeping with the retro-y spirit of Mega Man 9, Capcom decided to commission I Am 8-bit artist Gerald de Jesus to create the most awful faux box art possible for the game. Capcom then put it on T-shirts for its staff to wear at E3. The idea was to mimic the atrocious cover of the original Mega Man for NES (widely considered to be the worst box art of all time) and it worked. Really well.

Capcom's head PR honcho, Chris Kramer, has updated the company's blog with word that the exceedingly kitsch shirts will actually be re-printed for sale to the masses, although exactly when and where we can expect to snap one up is still being ironed on out.
Looks pretty mega to me.  Ha, see what i did there?

They are really following the trend from the NES Mega Mans, even the shitty box-art!

AWESOME!

If I wore that I'd most probably get laughed at within 5 seconds of walking out the door. Damn you life, why do you have to be so cruel?!
