The next chapter in Capcom’s Mega Man series, Mega Man 9, has made its first appearance today and will continue to “debut” for the next week and a half, the publisher announced today. Mega Man 9 is now available for download on Nintendo’s WiiWare service. It will be available for PS3 owners via the PlayStation Network on Sept. 25, with Xbox Live Arcade getting the game on Oct. 1.
In Mega Man 9, the original 2D blue dude returns, bringing the series back to its roots with retro action-platform gameplay and NES-inspired old-school graphics. Players will re-live the Mega Man experience with wacky themed environments, a host of power-ups and larger than life bosses, each with its own unique weapons and weaknesses.
Mega Man 9 is available for,1000 Wii Points today. Its PS3 version will retail for $9.99 on PlayStation Network, and its Xbox 360 version will cost 800 Microsoft Points.
