Mega Man 10 DLC Revealed

Kick up the Bass, and prep for some downloadable content.

Nintendo has revealed the additional downloadable content available for purchase in Mega Man 10.

The content, which will be released this April, is to feature "Bass Mode", which presumably allows the player to play as Bass, Mega Man's rival. Bass Mode will cost 200 Wii Points ($2) and will be released on April 5.

There will be three additional stages for download at the cost of 100 Wii points ($1) apiece. The first of these stages will be available on April 5, and the second and third will be available April 26.

The last piece of downloadable content is an "Endless Attack" mode, which will also be released on April 26 for 300 Wii Points ($3). This will presumably be similar to the Endless Attack mode from Mega Man 9, which was a never-ending stage with online leaderboards.

The downloadable content will cost 800 Wii Points ($8) altogether, making for a total purchase price of 1800 Wii Points ($18) if one wants the complete Mega Man 10 package.

Talkback

I'll totally buy this crap.

I'll at least buy Bass and the three individual stages. Don't care about Endless Mode.

Didn't we agree not to spoil the secret character?  And now all three of you are talking about him!

We all knew it was Bass, didn't we? Besides, I thought the "secret character" was an unlockable in the core game, so I thought it was Roll. I didn't think the secret character would be DLC.

Can't wait to see what Bass' sprite looks like, though.

As far as I've read, the secret character is unlockable in the core game, apparently gameshark style codes unlock him.  Which means alternatively, sending 200 Wii points unlocks him in the same manner.  Which is sad, because it means we'd be paying $2 worth of points for something Capcom already sent in the game.

This sounds like a better DLC lineup than for MM9. It will be fun playing as Bass in 8-bit form, and $1 levels sound great if they are as good as ones already in the main game.

He's unlockable in the game by hacking it? That's not legit...

I would've tried not to spoil it, but it's not my fault the entire gaming world was like "Yo dawg! Bass is in Mega Man 10!"
This kind of stuff is hard to avoid when Capcom spells it out for you.

No details on what the stages are?
I've noticed that there are three more slots for weapons on the pause screen, so I wonder if you can get something from those three stages.

I refuse to get this DLC out of principle, since I don't want to support such a devious money grub. Though I must say that the DLC isn't quite as lame as it was in MM9, and I'm glad that most of the DLC in MM9 is now included in the main game this time around.

All of the DLC is included in the main game this time around as well... you just need to purchase unlock codes to have access to it.

Which pretty much guarantees I'm not buying it.

Then again, I didn't buy the MM9 DLC either. C'est la vie.

I know that. What I meant is that things that were DLC in MM9 are now available in MM10 without having to purchase DLC. Proto Man, Time Trials, and Hard Mode are all there from the start.

Nintendo DLC is coming.

RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.

Unlockables have been replaced by DLC these days. Why give players for free what you can charge them for?
