Publishers don't normally show off glamour shots of their press asset discs, but such discs are rarely packaged like the one for Mega Man 9
is. The disc comes packaged in a reproduction NES cartridge, which comes with the Mega Man 9
"boxart" -- now on a real box.
The back of the box even features the "Captain Commando
" character (before he was redesigned for the SNES/arcade game) found on Capcom's early NES games like Gun.Smoke
-- and Mega Man
, obviously. The details
are what make the whole thing perfect.
Good news for non-press types: Capcom is considering selling a limited quantity of 200 or so online! In addition, the Mega Man 9 shirts
will be available for sale soon. Get your money ready! Head past the break to see the terrible secret of the NES cartridge.
