Mega Man 9 DLC deluge continues this week

Capcom rang the Infendo HQ phone this morning with details about the launch of its Mega Man 9 DLC (wave number two). Harder difficulties (it gets harder?!) and a new boss stage top this list.

Hard Mode ”“ Dubbed Hero Mode in Japan, this mode enables you to play the entire game on an increased difficulty level with alternate enemy distribution and spawning points. Hard Mode is not compatible with Rankings or Challenges Modes.

Expert Mode ”“ Dubbed Super Hero Mode Japan, this mode represents the apex of Mega Man 9 difficulty settings and is not for the novice Mega Man 9 player. This mode triples the level of difficulty from the default Mega Man 9 game. Expert Mode is not compatible with Rankings or Challenges Modes.

Special Time Attack Stage ”“ This DLC gives you an additional stage for Time Attack Mode, complete with an all new level and Robot Master Boss, “Fake Man.” Similar in difficulty to the Willy Stages, players will have a fun time tackling this time sensitive competitive stage. Special Time Attack Stage is not compatible with Challenge Mode.

Love it or hate it, DLC is here to stay. These additions are a few dollars. Worth it? Not worth it? You decide in that classy Infendo comment fashion we’ve come to expect from you guys and gals.
