The latest issue of Nintendo Power reveals that the game will include three playable characters, and a robot master named Sheep Man.
Following the success of Mega Man 9, Capcom has announced a sequel , the aptly named Mega Man 10.
Nintendo Power announced that Mega Man 10 is well on its way, and features significant changes to the traditional Blue Bomber formula. Among them is a bizarre story — the world's robots have been infected with a virus called Robotena, which causes them to overheat and go haywire. This could be an homage to the actual Mega Man X series, in which the Sigma virus causes robots to turn evil.
At any rate, Mega Man's posse aims to find components for a cure. More interestingly, it
's not just Mega Man this time. His brother, Proto Man, and an as-of-yet unnamed hero will be along for the ride, selectable from the very beginning and, hopefully, at any other time. A likely suitor for this third character could be Bass, an anti-hero character from Mega Man 7 and 8.
The game will also offer an Easy mode, perhaps to counteract the notoriously high difficulty of the series. As for the Robot Masters, only one has been revealed: Sheep Man. Yes, you read that right. Sheep Man looks like a cartoon sheep with robot arms and legs. He charges electricity, floating into the air and raining lighting over the battlefield. Once you defeat him, you acquire his weapon: Thunder Wool.
There is no release date for Mega Man 10 yet, and there is also no word on whether or not this will be a WiiWare exclusive.
