Capcom published the first Mega Man 9 screenshots. Check them out.
Pretty lame, I've made Megaman games that look better than this using rom hacks. WOW! I should sumbit my work.
It looks exactly like the old ones. You really are on crack. And when you say " I've made Megaman games that look better than this using rom hacks" you didnt touch the graphical part. You just rearranged tilesets. Dont fool yourself. Someone please shoot this bird ~SPC!
Sidar, you're wrong. I can upload 2 mega man games I have made myself 1 full one and another level test. I created actual bits using the full version of Waffle dog.
It's supposed to look retro like the old megaman titles for nes,moron...I realize your a pathetic young gamer that has no idea what gaming is all about but surely even an idiot like you can grasp this concept.Also... seriously go on ...why do you always show up on the wii sections of n4g..you clearly hate nintendo ...we get it.
But I semi agree with mr. megaman games dev over here. The game DOES look like the originals that I played religiously, but that doesn't mean I like it. Things have changed since 1989 and I say they touch the thing up a little. I mean I know retro is the new "in" thing now, but comon. I loved Megaman Powered up, which offered the old school gameplay with improved visuals along with others like super stardust hd, pixel junk monsters, and i'm really looking forward to bionic commando. Not totally pleased with all the Contra remakes, but I'd love for devs to remake the original.
I love the retro look, but I hope it's not just a standard megaman, I really love when new games combine a retro look with a new gameplay style, I just want IR cursor aiming and maybe a few cool motion controls.
I really dont care its a new megaman which with other 8-bit games its not about graphics its about the uniqueness of bosses aswell as the puzzles and weapons.People who dont like 8-bit or are to young to appreciate it shouldnt even post on these topics.All the spammers need to leave.(siligon im looking at you)
I can dig the retro but its not the best way to sell Wiiware ... isn't that why Nintendo has Virtual Console?
I sorry, but we're in 2008, not the late 80's.
And thats why this is so awesome ;)
Awesome 8-bit will never die ^^ Just the era Mega Man should stay in this will be fun to play once out
Its a retro game lol what do you expect.Retro doesnt mean 2008 but good job in your post.
They can spruce it up a bit dude. look at Geometry Wars. That looks like an enhanced version of asteroids and it kicked major ass. it still kept the retro look while look awesome
Read the interview with gamradar. Their whole point was to go back to 8-bit. Not to add extra effects.
it must be a joke... It won't even sell on NDS, and it is a Wii title?
They get to save money on making the game and yet the fanboys want it even more. Poor morons.
Save money? Read the interview, They used to have a team of 6 making Megaman games. He says now thats impossible with such a small group. So more people means more money.
But not retro technology. A fine example of retro gameplay with new technology are the Final Fantasy remakes and the "New Super Mario Bros 3D". Retro looks only means less work for capcom, and more money for them, which is why they have incentive to do this. If fanboys didn't tolerate this kind of abuse by Capcom and Nintendo, the industry would actually head for progress and not the other way. Get this through your thick skull.
Or people are just not as shallow as you =O
To be honest I would have liked the game to look more like Megaman 8 :) @sidar: I don't see anyone talking about music, see the part when I say "look" = I meant graphics like everyone is talking about >.>
maybe so, but if they make music that sounds like Megaman 8. Its gonna be donkey balls. Megaman 8's music did not fit the megaman mood! @ below. You played megaman 8 on the SNES? where did you get the port!!!!!!!!? ......PS1....not snes edit: Did i say you were? im just saying they could have made a megaman 8 looking game but the music of 8 sucks. just saying
I think that I remember mega man 8 on the snes, and it looked about 10 times better than this. I know that mega man means old school, but why make it look like the nes megamans. I hated what they did with MMx after 3, how they changed it, but this isnt "keeping it real." Most people will think this is a crappy old nes port, not a new MM game. I would MUCH rather have capcom release the snes version of MMX 1-3 for DL, than this crappy MM9.
... If you're gonna buy this "for nostalgia's sake.." fine, enjoy the game. I give it a pass.
Looks interesting. I'll most likely buy it. Wanna see what others think of it first though. I didn't like the older Megaman games because they were unforgivingly, hard, and glitchy in some spots, making it impossible to get by without getting hit. Hopefully this game won't be like that. A new Megaman X game in the style of anything from X-X5 would be much nicer though...
The fact that you couldnt get the pattern down and got hit does not mean it was full of glitches...
...I swear all the young depthless gamers out there...the beauty of this game is the fact that it's in full retro 8-bit...if you don't get or appreciate the nostalgia your not a real gamer.
I understand that they were going for the nes look, but why. ever since megaman 7 there's been countless megaman games, and they dont look like this. They should call this mega man 6.5 or something. Im just pissed cause I always like megaman x1-3 the most and they completley destroyed that series. But then they keep megaman the same after 20 years, but change mmx to some crapfest. atleast it isnt a megaman jrpg. I just think this game should look more like mmx than mm4 on the super gameboy.
I rarely use my Wii but i'll damn sure be playing this though. For those of you not old enough to remember gaming before the graphics took over, look back and try to appreciate the gameplay. I actually prefer the game in 8-bit. If would be sweet if they made the game hard as hell also.
well see if your anyone like me i love old megaman(although will admit they should have done a megaman 8 graphics wise version) and it sucks because europe has all the megaman virtual console games.North america has none so ill buy this game for a kinda "new" version of what the north american virtual console is missing. and to above ill agree hard was old school gameplay is the best,look at contra. also isaac why do you even post?honestly everything you say is negative(unless talking about sony).for someone so opinionated you would think you could atleast see some good in this news seeing as how there are no north america megaman games on virtual console.....but then again why would you.
and Nintendojunkie24 hits a home run with his statement btw.bubbles.
