    Megaman 9 is confirmed for September in Japan for 1000 Wii Points!

    According to gonintendo ( http://gonintendo.com/?p=48939 ), Famitsu confirmed downloadable content for the game, but nothing specific about it yet.

    CAPCOM confirmed that more Megaman 9 details will be displayed at E3 next week, so stay tuned [​IMG]

    Hmm, 1000 is a bit more than I was expecting given the 500-800 range for most NES games, though this is actually being released as WiiWare...

    I wonder what DLC they're talking about. I don't feel like paying $5 to play as Protoman here. =\

    Well given that it's a completely new game I guess it would make some sense to price it at that. I guess DLC could be new suits or something.

    I am too...well, maybe after I see footage or something I guess. It'd better be something to last me a while. =P

    I'd be very surprised if the "Play as the Robot Masters!" thing from Powered Up is in this, though all bets are that it's not.

    1000 points is worth it for me, should be a nice hard lengthy game. If they add an level editor or even better sprite editor that'll make it even more worth while.

    Lengthy? [​IMG]
    Mega Man 1-6 weren't what I'd call "lengthy", so if MM9 is just as short, even Lost Winds is "lengthier" than MM9 will be. And more fun. And prettier. And more original. And...ah, fuck it, it's your money.

    If it's hard as old NES games.. then it's lengthy [​IMG]

    Dammit, I'm still trying to beat Contra 4!

    I will definitely buy this. Hopefully it will be released in December or Q1 2009.

    Why must Europe be the last one to get games most of the time? (Yes, I know the answer...)

    Hmm hmm, I see what you mean. [​IMG] I wonder if there's going to be a remastered album from III like for the Zero/ZX series? XD

    More and more I suppose I am considering getting this.

    so it's not even anything new about it, it's just reused sprites from the old nes games and they just put a few new levels here and there and charge 1000 points for it.

    Well, at least they made new levels... N64 games are 1000 points and are exactly the same thing [​IMG]
