Get mega on WiiWare, Xbox LIVE or PLAYSTATION NetworkCAPCOM REVEALS MEGA MAN 9 FOR DLC Get mega on WiiWare, Xbox LIVE or PLAYSTATION Network Capcom looks like they’re pumping no small effort into DLC games with the announcement of Mega Man 9, which will be hitting not just XBLA but also WiiWare and PSN. So that’s all the bases covered…
This is a return to retro-style 2D side on action platforming with, say Capcom, some NES inspired old skool graphics as you play through a variety of maniacally themed environments using tons of power-ups in battles with the classic bosses, each with their own unique weapons and weaknesses.
Mega Man 9 is a continuation of the original Mega Man series and will feature the classic gameplay fans know and love focusing on defeating bosses and acquiring a massive(-ish) arsenal of weapons. Mega Man 9 will feature over a dozen new levels, plenty of new enemies with designs directed by Keiji Inafune, the original Mega Man character designer, online leader boards and a gamerscore achievements system.
Launching this Autumn for all three major platforms, Mega Man 9 should appeal to both old and new fans with those retro looks drawing old fans back to the series the 80’s style retro gameplay might well open up the game to a new audience. Mega! (sorry, couldn’t resist it).
Screenies to follow shortly.
