Here's a little confidence-builder for all those developers out there wanting to go in the opposite direction
of technological progress. Huzzah, the entirely new Mega Man 9
for WiiWare is essentially an 8-bit game, with terrible graphics, sound and animation. And it's awesome. Evidence is right there in front of you -- the first "man, we totally want it"
It's an uber-short video, and there's a giant Rockman 9
logo in the way, but we still get the gist of what's going on. Mega Man himself is jumping around, shooting stuff and just being generally mega
. Sit back, relax, and let the blips and bloops of the soundtrack put you into a dream-like state until the game's Japanese release in September -- though we have high hopes
for a short North American waiting list.
