I’m not the biggest fan of Megaman. I’m more of a Megaman X fan. Don’t ask me why, I’m just like that. So don’t hate on me if I’m not overwhelmed with joy with the announcement of Megaman 9 for WiiWare.
I’m guessing this game is squarely aimed at the nostalgic types. Not only are we getting the 9th installment of Megaman, we’re also going to get it in classic NES form. This game will be published by Capcom and developed by IntiCreates. Like more details? Here you go:
Like the graphics, the story takes a decidedly simplistic yet classic approach. Robots are causing havoc, and Dr. Wily blames Dr. Light for the wreckage. Mega Man sets out to clear his creator’s name while blowing up many, many things. And speaking of bosses, the article also gives us a look at the new roster: Magma Man, Galaxy Man, Jewel Man, Concrete Man, Hornet Man, Plug Man, Tornado Man, and Splash Woman. Yes, that says “woman”; after all, it’s 2008 and the series needed more fodder for robot-on-robot fanfic.
