Speculation has been running wild since Capcom registered Mega Man 9 as a trademark a few weeks ago. Well now some early scans of the next Nintendo Power have arrived, and they announce that Mega Man 9 is coming to WiiWare. Not only is it a completely new Mega Man game, but it's done in the 8-bit graphic and sound style of the original NES titles! It will, however, feature some hallmarks of modern gaming, like a more involved story, with full cutscenes all done in the same 8-bit style.
Here are the scans:
Actually it turns out that was just a rumour, it's still a Wii exclusive (officially at least). I'll probably get it, if it does come out on both PS3 and Wii I'll just get whichever version is cheaper.
oh yeah i remember hearing bout this awhile ago sweet thanks for reminding me
Shall be oh so awesome.
It's now officially multiplatform http://kotaku.com/5024083/mega-man-9-is-coming-to-360-ps3 which is hardly a surprise. I mean they were never going to pass up on more money.
Will it be 32-bit? Will it be Classic-Controller compatible? I want to bring back 1997 Mega Man memories!
I like it 32-bit, like the 1997 version of Mega Man! I wish Capcom can make a tag system so you can switch players by tagging! The button diamond has been used in Mega Man games since 1995, so I want to use the button diamond again in this Mega Man game releasing in 2009!
Its supposed to come out this month they said
No! The number 9 means 2009! The classic controller is best for Mega Man games!
No! It's almost reaching 2009, so the number 9 in Mega Man 9 means 2009!
Quote Gaby:No! It's almost reaching 2009, so the number 9 in Mega Man 9 means 2009!
I wonder if this game will have this song in the intro stage:
Quote 31gabe:No! It says Mega Man 9 so the number 9 means 2009! I am a sad, sad spamming little prick!
Don't make me say that word ever again! You're banned for this! See ya in hell!
Mega Man is better in 32-bit!
