    So damn fucking happy, though I'd prefer this on DS.

    EDIT: Forgot to add the Gonintendo have seen the NP issue and confirmed it also.
    EDIT 2: More details...awesome stuff:
    - Dr. Wily returns
    - Story: Dr. Wily blames Dr. Light for robot master attacks
    - various level hazards: lava, gravity-defying magnetic platforms, Mega Man clones
    - attacks gained from Robot Masters: Galaxy Man’s Black Hole Bombs
    - development handled by Inti Creates (Mega Man Zero, ZX, Battle Chip Challenge)
    - controls: Wiimote NES style, just as you would expect it to be
    - Rush returns
    - 8-bit style was chosen to ‘please fans’
    - 8-bit music
    - 8-bit cut-scenes
    - difficultly on-par with NES games
    - return of classic enemies, as well as new ones
    - Will Protoman be playable? “you’ll have to wait and see.”
    - hopes in surpassing the quality of Mega Man 2

    I'm just glad they release a proper Mega Man [​IMG]

    could be nice playing Mega Man at the TV set instead of DS.. though it would be nice beeing able to carry it around..
    both consoles have their +/- [​IMG]

    But the new gamers would be owned by the game if its anything like the original series. And those that won't I'm sure that they won't mind as the NES games have done well on VC.

    Its purely for us old schoolers who remember Mega Man games where you actually played Mega Man.

    Still.. doesn't make sense, coming back to 8bit!? WTF? I love the idea of having it 2D, but I like my games with more than 16 colors! It's 2008 for Christ sake! [​IMG]

    I was expecting at least some SNES like graphics.. Still think that this screenshot is not from the game.. I'll wait for more scans..

    Don't say that when there aren't even any screens [​IMG]

    Keep in mind that even Megaman Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X on the PSP were like 250MBs big, and they barely meet my expectations for a new "proper" Mega Man [​IMG]

    I bet they're just using WiiWare as an excuse for not making MM9 a full-blown game...it's one thing if they publish a remake of an old game (I'm talking about Bionic Commando of course) on XBox Live Arcade, which kicks WiiWare's ass HARD, but a brand new Mega Man game on WiiWare? Come on, it deserved better than that...
    Thanks to WiiWare, the game WILL have some limitations, there's no way around it...Oh, and I can't wait to see what innovative use will be made of the Wiimote [​IMG]

    Let's hope for the best, though...maybe they're using 2D sprite graphics, but I somehow doubt that [​IMG]

    There is a screen.

    Also it will be a full game seeing that there are 8 bosses in it. As for the "limitations", people seem to miss the point to what this game is meant to be, its an old school Mega Man.

    Wait, so it's supposed to have NES graphics? [​IMG]
    Give me a break...as much as I love retro games, that's just unbelievably cheap [​IMG]

    Please shoot me if that screen up there is *confirmed* to be from Mega Man 9...

    anyway, I already thought, 9 would be better of on the big screen anyways, since it belonged there since 1 ^^.

    Very true indeed.

    If Nintendo did the same with Mario people would accept it more I reckon.

    I think the decision to go 8 bit is a good decision. Mega Man will always be 8 bit in my memory

    Thanks Cocky!

    When this game comes out, I'll get a new Wii, I do miss playing some of the games but I will kill to play a new old school Mega Man.

    If anyone could get us some larger scans of the screens that would be great.

    - Dr. Wily returns
    - Story: Dr. Wily blames Dr. Light for robot master attacks
    - various level hazards: lava, gravity-defying magnetic platforms, Mega Man clones
