Capcom registers Megaman 9 with OFLC.
I would rather have a final X. You know it's a bad thing when the sequel to a series is already over when the original is still ongoing...
FINALLY THERE IS A GOD!
I need a new Original.
please let this come out on the wii too... for my sake.
Lame, an X game would've been a much smarter move as it had a cliffhanger with Axl's purple light thing
If this game bridges to X, I will eat Twin Twist in celebration.
I never saw something like that coming. Instead of making a newer Megaman they're going back to the original. Very nice!
I hope it will on the DS. Hopefully this will be better then the LAST one for the DS.
I enjoyed ZX series, which is my only Megaman experience. Heck, I am looking forward to this one. Screw the storyline, ima looking for screw up boss attacks !!
Some more RUMORS coming out about MM9:
-Rockman 9 will feature a retro 8-bit art style, a homage to the earlier games.
-Two playable characters: Rockman and Blues (ProtoMan). Each has their own unique storylines.
- A popular belief is that RM9 will act as the 'link' to the events of the X Series. This is not so, The storyline DOES NOT lead into the X Series, rather it's a 'traditional' plot.
-Many new characters, new Robot Masters and maybe some new supporting characters.
-Gameplay is reminiscent of Rockman 3-6.
-Online components: Leader boards and some unknown form of online play
-RM9 will be on all major home consoles: Wii, X360 and PS3. X360 and PS3 users will be able to purchase the game from their respective download services. It's unknown how the Wii version will work, whether it will be a downloaded game or not.
We'll certainly know more by E3. I've been a huge MegaMan fan since the series began. Over the years I came to enjoy the X series and the Zero series became a personal favorite. After MegaMan and Bass I was ok with the original series being left on the shelf, still I was not only surprised with the MM9 news, but how excited I got for the idea of a return to the original series. Maybe Capcom got the bug for a return after all this SF4 stuff, who knows. I just know I'm unexpectedly happy with the idea of the original Blue Bomber making his return. It's been a long time since I stomped on Dr. Wiley.
I'm not saying the game was bad but, compared to the other megaman games, ZX: advent (thats the only one I have) wasn't that great.
OH FUCK YES! It's about damn time we got a Mega Man 9. Hopefully (if Capcom does) this will tie into the X series.
finally get to play as proto man huh?
been waiting to do that since i was 6
I'm hoping and praying for something done with masterfully detailed 2D sprites like MM8. Having playable Bass again would be nice too.
But regardless of that I must say "OH HELL YES"
To be honest, I think Megaman 10 (X) would be the one they use for the tie-in. If they plan to not be cruel and actually DO the tie-in.
Finally. Remember having to mail order away when I was young for a cheap copy of Mega Man for the NES. Good times. Been playing ever since.
I'm glad it's not an X game, because the last four games in that series were sub-standard at best, and easily the worst Rockman games I've played. The X series needs to rest until Capcom decides not to drag it down any further. New ZX or DASH/Legends would have been fine, as those have yet to disappoint me.
The tie-in from the classic series to the X series has already been done. They covered it in the endings to the two arcade game.
You didnt like X8? it's my second favorite X game, behind X4.
