1UP: Mega Missteps: The Past and Future of Mega Man

Capcom's announcement Mega Man 9 and its unexpected return to its 8-bit roots has made gamers realize that while Mega Man's had some solid adventures on consoles like the Super Nintendo and PS1, it feels right to see him back on his original turf.

Mega Man's long break hasn't hurt anticipation for Mega Man 9, either. It's been 11 years since the Blue Bomber tripped up Dr. Wily in Mega Man 8. Sure, 1UP has been hangin' with his cousins since then, but Mega Man X has some major emotional baggage, and everyone else was too busy acting out dress-up Power Ranger adventures in Mega Man ZX to focus on what really counts in Mega Man's world: trashing weird robots.

The story is too old to be commented.
