Capcom has made a bold move to make Mega Man 9. Actually, Capcom making a Mega Man game period has not really been all that bold. They’ve been milking that franchise more than my local dairy sticks a vacuum tube to their cows.
Mega Man 9 will be old school. Yes, it’s going to be done like an old NES game–graphics, style, and sound. It’ll be available as a WiiWare title. No timeframe on the date or price.
The lovers: anyone over the age of 25 who played Mega Man 2 or 3.
The haters: anyone under the age of 25.
(Don’t believe me? The comments at Kotaku are priceless.)
Somehow, GamesRadar was able to score some screenshots and get a little more info such as boss descriptions.
If this is a hit expect to see tons more new, old games. Ha! I, for one, welcome it. Thanks to GameRadar for the pic.
