Rockman (or Mega Man, depending on how you first found it) fans are the latest demographic to be targeted by SuperGroupies, the geeky fashion company working anime and gaming into fashionable gear. The latest collab brings in baseball cap brand NEW ERA for a sporty gamer look.
Both caps are black, with blue and white embroidery on the front and sides. The Mega Man cap features his serial number, DRN.001, on the front. On the back is a tiny 8-bit embroidered version of the hero, as well as a tag featuring an E Tank.
Dr. Wily's cap is emblazoned with his "Dr. W" logo on the front. The back bears a tiny 8-bit Wily, plus a skull tag.
Each cap is 5,800 yen (tax excluded), and caps are on sale until preorders run out. Items are expected to ship in mid-June.
