It's been mentioned in the Nintendo topic, but it deserves its own. Mega Man 9 is coming exclusively to WiiWare this fall.

- Dr. Wily returns
- Story: Dr. Wily blames Dr. Light for robot master attacks
- various level hazards: lava, gravity-defying magnetic platforms, Mega Man clones
- attacks gained from Robot Masters: Galaxy Man’s Black Hole Bombs
- development handled by Inti Creates (Mega Man Zero, ZX, Battle Chip Challenge)
- controls: Wiimote NES style, just as you would expect it to be
- Rush returns
- 8-bit style was chosen to ‘please fans’
- 8-bit music
- 8-bit cut-scenes
- difficultly on-par with NES games
- return of classic enemies, as well as new ones
- Will Protoman be playable? “you’ll have to wait and see.”
- hopes in surpassing the quality of Mega Man 2

Robot Masters

Magma Man
Galaxy Man
Jewel Man
Concrete Man
Hornet Man
Plug Man
Tornado Man
Splash Woman - The first-ever FEMALE robot master

This could NOT be more awesome.

OH yes it could.

Capcom is just pissing their franchises away. This could have been a multimillion seller.

I'd be amazed if it sold over 50,000 downloads now.

What a waste.

if anything they choose to do this based on nintendo's VC lineup...and know gamers who love MM will get it since those fans grew up with the NES MM games...

if anything...I personally would have liked to have it done with the SNES MM7 graphics...oh well

Well, maybe this is a sure sign that Capcom just doesn't care about Mega Man anymore.

But this also tells me that what the devs DO care about, is Mega Man fans!

Who cares if it doesn't have the presentation of a nextgen game. This is Mega Man when Mega Man was MEGA F'N MAN!! Be happy!

In a sense, having MM9 as a WiiWare game makes a lot of sense. Nowadays, who do you know who's willing to plunk down 40-60 bucks for Mega Man on a current-gen system, especially after the track record some of the more recent games have gotten?

I feel this was a smart move as it gives the fans what they've wanted for over a decade now at a cheap price, added nostalgia factor, and minimal financial risk for Capcom.

If we're talking about that blurry screenshot of MegaMan 9, then it's a fake.

Game of the Year? No probably not. But this is a day one download. Well played Capcom, well played.

It'll bring back some good old memories for me.






Or make me realize how old I've gotten :(

and just like that, Capcom slaps Nintendo in the face again! Not really hehe, but looks like Mega Man 9 will be available for PSN and XBLA as well. Poor Wii, maybe next time. Looks like I'll be getting it for the 360 I guess.

I will cry manly tears if they have an HD option for it on PSN.

Check your source. The "E3 roster" the article refers to is an unofficial site, and there have already been a few games listed on said site that were debunked by their respective developers (Half-Life 2 Episode 3, for example). This doesn't necessarily mean that PSN and XBLA won't get MM9 (this is Capcom we're talking about here, after all), but it's by no means a confirmation. For all intents and purposes, it's still a rumor right now.

Here's the original article for those who are curious:

I'd still get it for Wii anyway. The 360 just isn't good for 2D games, thanks to the controller's terrible DPad. Since the Wiimote on its side is the closest thing we'll ever get to a NES controller in this day and age, that's the way I plan to play it. Besides, 8bit graphics in High-def? Ew.

Honestly this game is going to print money for Capcom. lets be hoenst here, how much time/money does it take to make an 8-Bit game? This is going to be a VERY cheap game to make, has a built in fanbase, I think it shows more then anything else thatCapcom DOES care about it's fanbases becuase most of the (Classic Series) Megaman fans I know would MUCH rather an 8-bit version then the looks of the later games.

Capcom has said that Mega Man 9, as of now, is still a WiiWare exclusive.

Like I said, though, this is Capcom, so a PSN and XBLA version is not unlikely.

From what I'm hearing, its all-but officially confirmed. Capcom's actively questioning if it can make the money it wants off of wii version of the game.

Truth on all accounts, I much rather play this game in all in it's 8-bit glory with the classic controller.

Bah I already did back before it was psuedo-confirmed the first time. But glad to see you made it official!
