Mega Man 10 Blasting Onto WiiWare

We read it in a magazine!

Listen, we don't often get into the habit around here of posting magazine scans just to throw some information at you a little sooner, since you could, you know, just go buy the issue on stands. So for the record, don't do it. But when the magazine itself posts the article online, and the article announces a new Mega Man game, I guess we can make an exception.


Here's Nintendo Power with a first look at Mega Man 10. (Here's the full-size image.)


I wanted to get excited at the thought of a Mega Man 10, just like I got excited at the thought of a Mega Man 9... but this time, seeing that same old 8-bit sprite isn't doing anything for me. It's mainly because the last game was just abusive in ways I no longer find enjoyable. Remember this? 
 
 
   
 
The game is coming "soon" to WiiWare, though the article doesn't mention anything about releases on other platforms (and why would it, in an official Nintendo magazine?).  How about you? Are you ready to break another Wii remote?

Interesting.  Not a super big fan of Mega Man, but, i mean, he's classic.

Posted by KaosAngel

Still want a new X game.  I don't like Mega Man as much as the X series.  X-X4 were amazing.

I actually guffawed when I read this.  Awesome.

I have to say, that artist rendition of Megaman and Protoman is making me much more interested in the game than any other Megaman game in the history of the series.

Damn it! I was saving up those Wii Points for all of Final Fantasy IV-2.

It's not the whole article, just the first two pages. The issue doesn't go on sale until Dec 22. This is what they do with every issue, showing several of their articles' first page or two to promote it (you could mention some of the other stories they have like NMH2 since you posted about the Nintendo Power issue anyway). They also mention that there's an easier easy mode this time, so yay for you if you found the other too hard. And for me.

Watching Jeff's frustration is making me want to download 9 now.  Something's wrong with me

Posted by Darkstar614

SHEEP MAN
 
they just sold a copy.

Posted by transience

MM9 is pure awesomeness. hopefully this is just as great.

Posted by sloppyjoe

I'll write another Mega Man game guide on day 1 just for you, Giant Bomb!

Posted by DrRandle

I want that cover art inside me.

Posted by Kou_Leifoh

This is nothing but a disappointment.

Posted by evilboy2000

I can't wait!!!  I'll definitely get it.  I liked how tough 9 was...  is there something wrong with me?

Posted by Alphazero

Please don't read my angry rants about Mega Man 9.
 
What I don't mention is that I love the art and music, but the game is vicious in a way my no-longer-12-year-old self can no longer appreciate.

My exact thoughts, seriously man what the fuck!  A sheep, capcom has got to be shitting themselves if they think they'll slip that on by.  
So can we be expecting Alpaca man next?
Edited by Spiritof

Mega Man 9 is a lot simpler with a joystick, and turbo turned on.
 
I'll probably give MM10 a go.
 
EDIT: And for the record, Jeff's reactions to Mega Man 9 are the exact same reactions I have to playing the challenge rooms in Batman: AA. Shock & Awe make me cry like a bitch.

Edited by Food

Jeff sucks at megaman apparently.  Megaman 9 was the perfect difficulty for me and it really wasn't even as hard as some of the other games in the series and it was fucking awesome and I am jizzing my pants right now for megaman 10.
 
SHEEP MAN IS THE SHIT
 
edit: I'm going to go play megaman now, thanks for reminding me of how awesome those games are, thread.
 
edit 2: but I should say I'm also worried that capcom is going to start pumping out megaman games every two seconds and ruin the series for a second time.  don't be that guy, capcom.

Posted by sloppyjoe

ps. Endurance Run Mega Man?????

Posted by ZmillA

If that main picture is the boxart, omg. That picture is so amazing, OMG. Im not even a megaman fan and I can appreciate the greatness of it.

Posted by buzz_clik

Cheers, Brad! I forgot about that video. The noise that Jeff makes at 3:28 is delightful.
 
And yeah, Sheep Man? LIMP.

Yay, glad Brad's back from his va-cay.
 
Also, when was this footage put up? I don't remember it seeing it a year ago. Whatevs, many laughs were had watching Jeff curse up a storm at that motherfucking hard piece of shit game.

I was thinking of Pillow Man.
 
He would smother you to death.

Dude, Sheep Man...

Posted by Bigandtasty

Digging the He-Manish cover art, but not a fan of super-hard games.

Posted by breaking3po

I remember that movie fondly and we expect another one once 10 comes out.
Posted by AltonBrown

This is great news. Now we need a proper MMX reboot.

Posted by captain_clayman

YESSSSSS 
 
another game i'll never be able to beat!

I would give my left dick for one of those.

@ThePhantomnaut: Don't be so sheepish tell us what you really think.
Posted by masterherocard


Hmm, the pictures are neat, but reading the text reveals three playable characters

Megaman, Protoman, and UN-NAMED THIRD GUY WHO IS IT?

 

Posted by Det1

<obligatory THEY ALREADY HAD A MEGAMAN 10. IT WAS CALLED MEGAMAN X joke here>

Posted by TooWalrus

FUCK yes. I actually managed to beat Mega Man 9, I'm looking for a new challenge...

I'm hoping for Llama Man. 
 
And I totally want this to be as tough as Mega Man 9... I ain't no pussy!  I can handle a challenge!
Posted by ch3burashka

I really hope the experiment with the art style - either faux-3D or isometric, or voxels or ANYTHING.
 
Also, isn't Sheepman basically Mareepman?

Sheep dude man.
Posted by Branthog

That's nice. When can I play the first nine without having to have six different ancient systems and paying $1,000 to track down the cartridges for them?

Posted by Metroid545

I'm totally  psyched megaman 9 was awesome

Right now,  seeing how Capcom released most of them in anthologies and on all system's DD services.

Finally brad is back doing something on the site. I've missed him in quick looks.
Posted by BD_Mr_Bubbles

I have no desire to torture myself with another MM but thanks anyway.
Posted by TheIronYuppie

This is what Nintendo(and video gaming as a whole) meant to me when I was a kid.  I cannot be happier at the return of 8-bit Blue Bomber as an ongoing franchise.

My thoughts exactly.
Posted by CitizenJP

I would prefer Mega Man Legends 3 instead to be honest. *sigh* :(

Posted by Knives

I put 30 or 40 hours into 9. I'm stoked.
