Xbox 360 PS3 Wii

The rumor was right, and Megaman 9 has been announced at E3 for Wii Ware but also PSN and XBLA. And surprise, it's using the sprites from the old NES games, and it looks like it will be a really challenging game.

They should have remade it like Bionic Commando Rearmed and Prince of Persia.
Upgrade the visuals, redo the music and sound and yet keep the classic gameplay attached.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

I can't emphasise enough how much they shouldn't have. This really is one for the fans that grew up with the Megaman games and still revere the first three in particular.

Mega Man 9 will be the hardest Part of the Series, even harder than the old NES-Games! (and some of you know, they're very Hard)


"Mega Man: The Wily Wars" (SEGA Genesis/MEGA DRIVE) and "Mega Man Collection" (Xbox) are in my Collection, 9 is mine! ;)


OT: Is there any harder Game than Mega Man? (the old Games)

I like the way Megaman is now. 8-Bit FTW!

DavidDC. There is lots of harder games on NES than Megaman games. Hmm like Battletoads, Double Dragon 3, Ninja Gaiden 1-3, TMNT 1 and... Obviously some games are harder to others but those are all quite hard.

I didn't watch the trailer. I can wait to get the game later.

2D? That's fine. But did they really have to use NES graphics???!!! (Not that I'm too bothered though as I was never a fan. You may think it sounds dumb but the inability to duck really bothered me at the time, lol! That wasn't the only reason I wasn't into them though.)

Agreed. I just find NES Megaman is a horribly ugly game; there really isn't much I like about visually.

For me this is the best news for new Megaman game. Then again I have completed all the games many many times. I think it looks just the way MM game should look. I know many who think the same as me but then again they are all fans of the earlier games and have hoped something like this would happen.

Btw remake would have been disappointment for me. Those games have been played so many times already that it's good to see some new levels and stuff.

There could have been a new game with new levels and stuff that didn't look like ass.

Yeah, TMNT (Underwaterlevel, Bombs) and Ninja Gaiden are hard (and nice) too ;)
Never played Battletoads on NES (only on SNES) and Double Drragon 3 (but 1 & 2).


Love the "Good old Days" 8 Bit Goodness (Graphics and Sound!), but they do some tuning! ;)
Look at the Bubble on 00:40:00, and on 01:01:00 no Slowdowns in the Rain ^^

Is MegaMan 9 a 800 or 1200 MS Points-Game?
