    Default Mega Man 9 new info

    http://www.maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=28490

    seems we may get Mega Man 9 after all. Its been rated & is set for a multi platform release, though that may end up being via digital distribution, ie PSN network, WiiWare, Live.

    Personally im pretty excited!, but i dont want digital distribution. As a collector i want the actual physical game to set on my shelf.

    Wonder where the story will go..? After so long between the last installment it should be good.

    Thoughts?

    Best gaming news I've heard since the announcement of the new Castlevania. This is exciting. A long time coming. Mega Man 8 was a solid addition to the series and I always wondered why it stopped there.

    I'm a huge Mega Man fan, so this is great news to me. I'm glad they're going back to the original numbering scheme, which to me seems like they're taking the franchise back to its roots, which it really needs. I hope it's released as a retail disc for either PS3 or 360, since those are the two consoles I own this gen.

    That's so awesome! I was just lamenting the lack of a MM9 a mere couple weeks ago, and went so far as to start sketching out new bosses.. (lame right? I know but..)

    Anyway I came up with: Cyber Man (old school CRT monitor for head, emoticon face), Thunder Man (you gotta have some kinda electric one, right? He has a round, glass body with one of those electrode things in the center --the ones that you touch the orb and all the electricity arcs toward your hand), and finally Chainsaw Man (two chainsaw arms and large body and thick legs, head kinda looks like its covered by a mask --ala Texas Chainsaw Massacre, of course [or RE4]). I'm sure someone else already thought of all of those before me; I just felt like sharing :P

    Although the MM Fan in me is ecstatic as heaven, but wonder how Inafune will execute this? Will he similar Megaman Powered-Up or trace back his roots and go with the same approach for Megaman 8 and Megaman & Bass (who some debate as Megaman 9)? Speaking of MM8, will they continue the story was where they left off? I feel it is an interesting element inserted into the Megaman universe as something that could trigger the events leading up to MMX and the perfect thing to start filling in the blanks between MM and MMX.

    i too think they should continue the storyline from MM8, the artbook R2 (rockman 20 years) has a very interesting picture of what the stardroids (duo and the bad robot) looked like before they crashlanded and dr. light rebuilt them.

    Yes, surely we need more Duo!

    Knowing Capcom, this will be the bridge game between the original Mega Man series and the shittacular Battle Network series. Bah.

    I've only played the MMs on the NES so I'm not too excited for it since I'm not a big MM fan. But my question is: since when have MM games had stories?

    Huh? Since the first one, but you had to look in the manual. I think that Mega Man 4 was the first to have story sequences in game.

    Well if they really wanted to, they could possibly release it on a disc for a fair price (yeah right), or release a compilation disc later on with all of their DLC titles on it.

    First Street Fighter 4 and now Mega Man 8, this is indeed fantastic news.

    There is a god, after all.

    If they insist on throwing in Roll, Bass, Treble, Duo, Rush, Proto Man, and whatshisname from the shop, it's a far cry from the "basics" of yore.

    Proto Man was in MM3...

    Oh man, I hope they get the Guilty Gear guitarist to do the music for this game. He did this Mega Man 8-bit arrange edition album, and it was wonderful. I can't stand all this techno remix bullshit that proliferates on the internet and in the official collections.

    It's like what they did to the music in F-Zero GX. F-Zero X enhanced the sound the first F-Zero set out to do, creating an awesome metal soundtrack, and then GX went and cocked it all up by making it techno. All they needed to do was take the music straight from the F-Zero X Guitar Arrange Edition album and slap it on the GX disc, and they'd have perfection, but no...

    If they actually have the balls to call in Mega Man 9 (well, Rockman 9 I suppose...unless it's some english-speaking studio making it...), it should be similar to the older games. When they want to try something radically different they make a new branch. They wouldn't be so dumb as to come back to 9 after all this time and fuck it up, I hope.
