You know, I thought the "Mega Man 9 will be done in 8-bit graphics" was an exaggeration. Something... lost in translation. Those things happen. That's why we say crazy Japanese translations like "SUPER HAPPY CRAZY FUN TIME". But you know, Mega Man 9. Wow, was it for real? Surely someone was jerking our chain, Capcom would never go back to revisit a class style of game, would they? Eh? EH?

WRONG! Turns out Mega Man 9 is very, very real. Complete with robot masters like Magma Man and my personal favorite, Concrete Man. More importantly, they weren't lying when they said it would be in 8-bit graphics. It really, really is. A part of me is saying WTF, while the other 4/5 says "Holy shit that's awesome!" Seriously, absolutely awesome, like "I AM BUYING THAT" awesome. Truly, Mega Man 9 has the potential to be quite the throw back to old school Mega Man. Here's to that. By the way, pictures can be seen at Kotaku

Probably the best thing to happen to the Megaman series since X1 (though Zero 1 can be argued as well).
 
That looks really awesome! I hope it isn't just WiiWare though. I'd like to see it on PSN and XBLA.
 
Sweet!  I love Megaman and going back to old school graphics is awesome for me!!!!
 
Yes. Yes.

Yes.
 
the blue bomber strikes again!
 
About time! I gotta pop the anniversery collection in now.
 
First LostWinds, then Dr. Mario Online Rx, and now Mega Man 9!
WiiWare has turned out to be awesome.
 
@UNFORGIVINGPAIN:

Except for the space problem.
 
@TraderJake:
True, that is a problem.
WiiWare has turned out to be FAIL.

 
Much as I'd prefer a solid proof of ownership, I think I will have to download this one Smiley
 
@Shimra: Word on the street says that the Zero team is working on 9. Food for thought.
