The Blue Bomber returns to his roots.
The latest issue of Nintendo Power has revealed that Mega Man is headed to WiiWare with a new iteration to the mainline series. It has been over eleven years since Mega Man 8 released on both the Sega Saturn and PlayStation, though the Blue Bomber and his accompanying characters have continued to stay relevant through a number of spin-off titles and re-releases.
Mega Man 9 will feature a graphical style similar to the NES titles of the past and will be entirely in 2D. Currently the details on the game are thin, but it is confirmed that the game will feature the first female robot master ever, Splash Woman. Along with Splash Woman, Magma Man, Galaxy Man, Jewel Man, Concrete Man, Hornet Man, Plug Man, and Tornado Man have been confirmed as robot masters.
No release date has been announced for Mega Man 9 at this time. We'll bring you more details as they develop.
