Mega Man 10 Confirmed For WiiWare 104

Posted by Soulskill
from the with-new-bosses-chair-man-and-bread-man dept.
The upcoming issue of Nintendo Power revealed that Capcom is working on Mega Man 10 for a release via WiiWare sometime in the future. "Like Mega Man 9 (released for WiiWare in 2008), Mega Man 10 remains true to the series's roots with 8-bit-style graphics and sound, and tried-and-true Mega Man gameplay." According to the early look at Nintendo Power's article, the game may include an easier difficulty mode, likely inspired by complaints that the previous game was too hard. It also previews one of the new bosses, who is apparently called "Sheep Man." Make of that what you wool.

        The "classic" Mega Man series jumped the shark in the NES era, and Mega Man 9 wasn't even as good as the NES series at it's absolute worst. If you're going to make a retro-style game in this day and age, you should at least try to match the source material in terms of quality. If 9 was released on the NES alongside the other games, it would be long forgotten by now. I'm not expecting no. 10 to be much better.

    Any word on it being available on the other platforms MM9 was available for? I love MM9, but I'm not exactly gonna go and buy a Wii just to play MM10

      Then don't. You'd be depriving yourself of a lot of great Wii games if you only played Mega Man 10.

      Megaman 9 is available for all 3 consoles, Xbox, PS3 and Wii. However, the difficulty in the demo turned me off from buying the game. I like a challenging game but I just don't have the patience for the sluggish awkwardness of the original games. Why they didn't modernize the game in the style of Mega Man ZX, which is a far superior game, is beyond me. The basic gameplay is the very similar, but the controls are far more fluid. It's one thing to keep losing because of a particularly challenging section and

    I am 100% all for keeping the gameplay exactly as it had been before, but a graphics upgrade would be a welcome change.

    My perfect example was the original Contra [youtube.com] and Super C(ontra) [youtube.com] for the NES. I could play those games for hours, even as recently as a few years ago. When they were released for the Xbox 360 I bought them instantly but was severely disappointed. I have a 1080p screen, Contra is a side scroller, why not just make the damn field of vision wider? Or maybe some higher resolution graphics? Don't mess with the controls, just spiff up the looks. Both games were immensely fun to play.

    Yeah, it's great to have access to these older classics again, but not doing anything to polish them up a bit smacks of lazyness.

      The NES aesthetic is a part of the original Mega Man series' identity. Up to and including Mega Man 6, they were NES games.

      The graphics being so basic also contributes to the fine-grained gameplay. Look at Mega Man 8 why a graphics upgrade that you're proposing breaks the gameplay. Now, maybe you're arguing for the same shapes, but with more detail. But 8-bit has its charm, and like I said, is part of the series' identity.

      Contra constantly spawns enemies at the edge of the screen, widening the screen would have a severe gameplay impact (because you'd get much more time to shoot them). Contra Rebirth which was designed for a widescreen capable system just uses black bars.

      • Good point. Maybe just make enemies immune up until an invisible threshold which makes them vulnerable when they cross?

      Because some of us who have been playing this series for twenty-plus years are used to the game as it sits damn near down to pixel count and just how many toes Megaman needs to keep on a ledge to not fall off.
  • Will Mega Man 10 support progressive scan? Months ago I bought a Wii VGA cable, which allowed me to use the Wii with one of the monitors I keep in my room (so I wouldn't hog the family TV). I was very disappointed that I couldn't play Mega Man 9 this way because apparently Capcom was lazy enough to not include progressive scan support.

    This is quite baffling when you consider that:

    • Mega Man 9 on other platforms does have progressive scan support
    • All other WiiWare games do
    • Almost all regular Wii games have it a

    WiiWare and the Virtual Console are reason enough to own a Wii.

    My "hardcore" gamer friends have all owned and then sold a Wii. They can't believe I'm still spending almost all of my gaming time on the Wii. But what I found out was they never used the Nintendo channel or the DLC. They've all been amazed and regret selling their Wiis when I show them things like the Tales of Monkey Island, Mega Man 9, Excite Bike, the two Lost Winds, and Bit Trip Void (and those are just the first line of my screens of downloads on my Wii). Then there's the long list of Virtual Console games: the Super Mario Bros, Zeldas, Super Mario Kart, A Boy and His Blob, etc.

    If you have a Wii and aren't taking advantage of the amazing games and huuuge back catalog you aren't doing it right.

  • Seriously! There is obviously a market for people who like retro games, and the developers need to take advantage of this.

    Do you understand how many people would buy a new 8-bit RPG game similar to something like Chrono Trigger? Holy crap, I'd jump all over that.

    This is when games were about the story, and not about the shiny graphics.

    • Chrono Trigger was 16-bit. 8-bit RPGs are significantly less popular nowadays... much more limited in story, graphics, gameplay, etc.

    • It's, tbh, the biggest reason for owning a Wii. Ironically, I think the Wii's digital download content does in fact make it the truest hardcore gamer system because it has all the best classics and remakes and they're not at full game prices.

    WiiWare, SchmiiWare.

    I'd like to see another major game company actually go back to the old hardware for a new installment of a classic game series. Sort of like what Sega did with Fantasy Zone 2 - they actually remade it for the System 16 hardware (albeit upgraded to 256KB of RAM).

    Who would not shit their pants if there was a new NES or SNES Mario game, for example - one that you could not only buy on the VC, but also (for a hefty fee, of course) buy directly from Nintendo and play on their authentic consol
