Mega Man priced at $10, more screens revealed

Color me blue this morning, because there’s some significant info out regarding WiiWare exclusive Mega Man 9, and it’s all goooood.

First, price. It’s going to be $10. Yeah, $10. I was actually expecting more for some reason, but I’ll gladly pay ten bucks for a brand new 8-bit Mega Man title. Considering what I paid for original NES games in the 80s and 90s, this is a steal.

Next, new screenshots. Unlike today’s typical screenshot, which is usually a render or some grab of a cutscene (“bullshots”), you can’t really fake an 8-bit title. What you see is what you’re going to get, and they’re glorious (I’ve heard the music kicks 8-bit ass too).
