Mega Man 9 (WiiWare)

Game Profile

The original 2D classic Mega Man returns in Mega Man 9 for WiiWare.

This latest Mega Man title brings the series back to its old school roots with retro action platforming gameplay and classic 8-bit NES-style graphics and sound. Relive the Mega Man experience with classically inspired bosses, each with their own unique weapons and weaknesses.

The story of Mega Man begins in the year 200X, as the advanced science of the era has created industrial robots that co-exist with humans. However, an evil genius, Dr. Wily, plots for world domination and creates his own robot army to take over mankind. Luckily for humanity, Dr. Light outfits one of his domestic robots "Rock" to fight Dr. Wily's creations. Mega Man is born.

Set after the events of Mega Man 8, multiple riots have sprung up all over the world. Whilst many people suspect that this is another plot from Dr. Wily, Dr. Light is stunned to recognize that some of the robots rioting on the TV screen are his own creations. Even more stunning, Dr. Wily appears on television to proclaim that Dr. Light is the evil mastermind behind these latest catastrophic incidents and it's up to Mega Man to clear his creator's name!

There are 8 new Robot Masters for Mega Man to fight: Magma Man, Galaxy Man, Jewel Man, Concrete Man, Hornet Man, Plug Man, Tornado Man and Splash Woman.

The Blue Bomber is back - but has this trip down memory lane been worth the wait?

There's no denying that the NES Mega Man series was a huge hit for Capcom during the 8-bit era. The games enjoyed mammoth success for Capcom and probably single-handedly sold many an NES console in the process. Although the series and its spinoffs have...

Capcom learned the hard way that the traditional 2D Mega Man games do not adapt well into 3D. And a console downloadable game would have been very iffy if it had indeed been 3D, as their budgets and size limitations are much more strict than a traditional game's release.

Mega Man Legends was the only Mega Man game to function amazingly well in 3D, and Capcom has not been able to re reproduce that. So 2D would be the best bet for Mega Man Classic or X.

G-D! That looks amazing! I hope this leads to other new Mega Man games, such as a new Legends, or perhaps a retro Mega Man X. That would be totally awesome! Especially Legeds, since, oddly enough, that was the game that got me into Mega Man in the first place! They at least should release Mega Man 64(the N64 Legeds) on the VC. I already have the Aniversary collection, so I don't really care whether the original Mega Man games make it to the VC, plus there are remakes out anyways( that didn't sell well, I could easily find them cheap).

Mega Man X could really go for the retro sequel, now that I think about it. MMX7 was awful, and MMX8 would've made up for it, had it not been for Capcom insisting that 2 levels be in 3D. 2 awful stinking levels...

OMG. If Megaman 64 went onto VC...f%^$ SMRPG. Maybe even forget Earthbound...well, only for amoment but you get the picture! I think this is a good purchase if it has some difficulty levels or something for wimps like me, and a good price point. I'm just happy to see CAPCOM supporting.

This is a dream come true! I never thought I would be able to play new, old games! If this sells well, we may see more! I don't just mean more Mega Man, I mean possibly more from other companies. How cool would it be to get a Super Mario 4, Contra, Ninja Gaiden or Castlevania, NES style?

Exactly, Mavel Maniac! Though someone on a different forum corrected me when I wished for SMB4, the japaneese Mario World cover has "Super Mario Bros 4" printed on it.

But still, a Super Mario Bros.5, Castlevania 4 or Kid Icarus 3 would be pretty awesome... Follow Capcoms lead, great softwarecompanies of the NES era! SUNSOFT- RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE!

Capcom just digs the quote, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." So a decade from then they release the same game with the same graphics and people will buy it. Well, I think it's time to move on. And for a retro experience, why not get the originals on VC (as soon as they come out in America (which they probably won't, along with all the other games everybody wants (Earthbound, Super Smash Bros., Kirby Super Star...(which they will definitely not release because of the impending DS remake (which is pretty much the same game with some added features (so it will cost more money (when we could just get it for eight bucks))))))).

But I hope they at least update the sound quality (which I am positive they will not (crying face (I forget how to type a crying face.))). The awesome original music was both awesome and awesome! It would have been even more awesome had it had more awesome sound quality.

@Final_Starman

Trust me, Mega Man's been so bad lately that we're just begging to have the Blue Bomber returned to his roots.

I know what you mean though - Nintendo, Square Enix, and others are simply rereleasing remaking their old games instead of releasing them on the Virtual Console, all because they want to make a quick buck, and it's seriously ticking me off! It was okay before VC, but not now!!

I'll still get this though, as I haven't played a good Mega Man game in years(actually, I enjoyed ZX, but it was far too much of a Castlevania game to be honest, and the sequel was just plain bad).

wow, totally badass. I love the 8 bit graphics and sounds, someone has finally heard my cry to release new NES games. I hope that Nintendo realises there is still a market for 8 bit gaming and will use the virtial console to release more New Nes games. Could you Imagine Super Mario, Zelda, Blaster Master, or Metroid given the same treatment. Now youre playing with power. Retro Power.

This is the first WiiWare game I'm actually anticipating before its release. I've only played the original Mega Man titles through the Anniversary Collection, but I've grown to love the series. Personally, I don't see what's wrong with the updated 16 or 32 bit Mega Man sprites, but the mere fact that Capcom is willing to go retro for a completely new game, and not just a rehash, foreshadows future greatness. Long live Mega Man 9!

If only one of Dueling Analog's "Rejected Mega Man Villains" robot masters were included. Then this game would not only be retro, but have insider jokes and references too. :)

Although I have no interest in Mega Man (I always like Metroid better. :P) this is a great, fantastic idea on the developer's part. 8-bit graphics and music!? Super cheap to make! 8-bit graphics and Music? Super fun to play, and appeals to all the classic gamers, which, is a majority.

I predict this game will make a super amount of money; much more then was spent to make it. ;)

As for Mega Man... I just never really liked it. Maybe becuase I was traumatized by Mega Man 64; the first title of the series I played. :p

I just beat Mega Man 1, and I'm moving on to Mega Man 2 on the old Anniversary Collection. I'm trying to avoid saving when I can to keep the play as pure as possible... Here's hoping I can beat all of them before MM9 comes to WiiWare! I don't know why everyone hates the disappearing block puzzles. I found them easy, at least in MM1. I hated those platforms that fly and shoot out of the sides (in Iceman's stage and Dr. Wily's Castle). GAH!!! Without the magnet beam, they're highly irritating. They're more irritating to get past only to realize you lack the magnet beam in Wily's Castle. Grrr...

I really need the game to come out soon! What a great idea Capcom came up with! Nintendo, Konami, and especily Sega should make games go retro too! And to top it off DLC! This is my 3rd most anticapated Wiiware title below Alien Crush Returns and Bomberman Blast. (I'll be getting the Wii version thought.) Lets hope Megaman 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (My most wanted VC title), and 8 (If Sega Saturn becomes one of the Virtual Console console being supported.) come to the Virtual Console too!

I have a theory that maybe megaman 9 will be released septemer 17th in japan and 19th in europe and in 22nd in USA. this is if nintendo want a head start for the rumored release 24 on xbox live arcade. and on one site they could not release the review before 22nd of september so its possible.

This will end up as the second legal version of Mega Man i have. I Can't wait for this. Only problem i have is that Capcom are seriously Over-hyping the game and telling us far too much. The only Other game i own is MM1 and when i said legal, i mean not through emulation, which the first 6 are easily found.

I Do try to stay away from Emulation, apart from translated versions of Japan Only Games and i still keep away from those generally, with the exception of Radiant Silvergun.

I meant to put this comment here...

I've beaten two levels now...Concrete Man and Galaxy Man....(only two I've tried so far)

It's perfect!!! Feels like the old mega man games...I'm even getting a blister on my thumb just like the old days First game to give me a blister in years!!!

Online 'time attack' record board for each level.
Checklist for completing certain achievements (ie: finish game, beat a level with only mega buster, get through level without being damaged, beat the game with out dying, etc...around 50+ achievements).

Downloadable content on it's way for more challenges.
This game has mega replay all over it. Hopefully I can beat some of the time records, but some are good and I'm getting old

It's better than expected so far, but I've only played two levels and spent about 90 minutes on it. Perfect retro game!

cangelo

ADam...it doesn't have difficulty options, BUT there will soon be 'downloadable' content for Hero Mode (which is harder) and SuperHero Mode which is probably near impossible...not to mention other great downloadable content/modes (for a small price)

Mega Man 9 is bloody hard but that's what Retro gaming is all about. ^^

But there a few issues with the WiiWare title (not game play wise):

  • The Gamecube Controller doesn't work despite the fact it mentions it should be compatible in the Wii Channel when you view the details of the game.
  • No widescreen mode. Not too fused as it's nice to play the game in it's original ratio but include an option to have widescreen.
  • WHY THE HECK WAS NO PROPER HD SUPPORT ADDED? I'm fed up having to drag my standard cable out because games don't fit the image in the centre correctly if I use a Component Lead?

Get an update made Capcom! Otherwise, great game! :D

Can't you just change the picture formatting setting to 4:3 on your TV? That's what I always do to play classic games. Or just use the xbox 360, which I'm pretty sure readjusts for wide, at least it did on Symphony of the Night.

Should I get this or Mega Man 2? I know about the difficulty. I just want to know which has the better music, is more playable, and will last longer. Thanks!

AlexSays

AlexSays said:

@ Luigi- I think Mega Man 2 had better music, and was a little easier.
So if you're just getting into the series, Mega Man 2 is a little more user-friendly.

After you conquer that, feel free to tackle Mega Man 9. :P

Marvel_Maniac

#92

Marvel_Maniac said:

I agree. Go for Mega Man 2 first. Its easier (IMO) and the music is STILL the BEST in the whole series.

I will say this for Mega Man 9 though, it does have good music. It has some really fun levels and some very inventive mechanics (just wait until you tackle Wily's first mode).

9 is also noticably harder than any game in the series. I say this not because its harder than Mega Man I, but because it's longer. Mega Man 1's saving grace is that it is mercifully short.

For $10 MM9 is a fantastic buy however. We were paying $60 for these same types of games back in the day, so for anyone who is a fan of platforming, I whole-heartedly recommend this game!

I LOVE this game - nice false sense of security... "You've been playing games for the best part of 23 years, this is old skool, you know this like the back of your hand" ... and then... "you really haven't been practicing as much as you should have been have you?"

The music is spot on, takes me right back; controls are nigh on perfect (sometimes seems a bit of a delay, but I think thats the Bluetooth remote, rather than anything to do with the game - maybe my batteries are low - I should check); premise is pretty much where my brain is at right now, IE: run, jump, shoot, die, rinse, repeat :D

I got the error on the downloadable content page too, but its because the download stuff isn't available yet.

Question.
SInce this is a WiiWare game, this doesn't support being suspended, am I right? For instance, I feel that the save stations in Super Metroid are pointless now because I can just suspend the game anywhere. Is this something I can do in MM9? Is there any save at all, or do I have to play through the game in one sitting?

Megaman 9 is so hard. It's typical old-school timing and patterns but it could be more forgiving as that style isn't really that much fun.
For the price it should have had upgraded graphics option (like the flicker option) ans anytime saving. All of the additional Pay and play items should have been included for the 1000pts too.

A bit of a rip off IMHO....

WiiMan192

#113

WiiMan192 said:

Well, I'm confused.
I have never played a Mega Man title. Heck, the only hard old-school game I've ever played was on VC (Super Ghouls 'n' Ghosts) and I'm only up to level 1! Should I consider downloading this? Help would be appreciated :P

#114

said:

^ Well, Mega Man is much easier that the Ghouls 'n' Ghosts series. It's also only hard if you're unable to perform fast movements with your fingers, memorize rooms, and assess the best course of action per situation. One play-through of a Mega Man game, and the difficulty pretty much dies. Well, unless you're not really an action gamer and pretty much muscled your way through with some luck.

Of course, it's a damn good game either way, and that's what the bonus stuff is for. I'm hoping that hard mode and super hard mode give me a run for my money (and for $1 each, it's not much money either). Mega Man 9 is not a game to be missed. Gaming has been needing this kick in the ass since at least 2001, which is about when the Game Boy Color died and took 8-bit gaming with it. I also think today's youth and the entire internet (my sworn enemy) have been needing a kick in the ass as well, but for now we have Mega Man 9. :)

I'm actually going for Mr. Perfect. Gone through three stages so far without taking any damage (hey, at least you can save between the first eight stages). It's actually not as bad as you'd think as soon as you manage to get your first special weapon.

Edit: Got through all eight bosses without taking any damage! Now for Wily's castle O_o

Nath17 said:

Finally, a Wii Ware title that appeals to the hardcore gamer market, not the family friendly, vomit inducing casual gaming market. No doubt that the game's difficulty will cause a backlash because it involves actually playing games like the good old 8 bit era.

Nevertheless, Mega Man 9 is essential. It looks fantastic and makes me realise how ludicrously easy 80% of games released today are. Let's just hope that Nintendo follow Capcom's example and make Super Mario Bros. 4.

@Cally- My God! You're devoted! I'm proud of my measly 36%! I was thinking of doing your method for Mr. Perfect, but I've got a lot of practicing to do.

Cally

#123

Cally said:

@Clayfrd

Yeah. I'm taking a break after I beat the first eight stages perfectly so I won't make myself nuts. Like the 360's achievements, some of the challenges are cool while others are kinda stupid (beat the game five times in a day?)

I started with Galaxy Man, noticing the different way he looks when he jumps straight up or at you. This is a hard thing to do, but once you get his weapon, go for Jewel Man, who is weak to it and yields that really effective shield that will make the rest of life three times as easy from there on out. (notice Jewel Man mimics you--jumps when you jump, shoots when you shoot, so jump slightly and run under him). I get used to using the weapons a LOT, because they're so effective in this game. Use a file starting with lots of screws so you can get M-Tanks for refilling weapons.

It's hard as rocks but it's doable, thanks to some of the most scientific game design I've ever seen. Worthy challenge, therefore . . . except that you don't get anything for beating the challenges. :(

Edit: Only TWO challenges to go for me: Mr. Perfect, and beat it 30 times. :P

I think I might be able to help you out. When Galaxy Man is on the ground, have your back turned to him. For example, if he is looking left, you look left. He will most likely follow you and land on the floor again. Repeat it with the concrete shot and you should beat him in 10 seconds.

By the way i have read from an interview not sure if this is true but there supposed to be a secret in this game that nobody yet have found have anobody on this forum discovered anything special? maybe the black area on the sub screen is supposed to be some special weapon?

Being a bit of a Sega boy in my youth, I have never played a Mega Man game - do you get lives/continues or just as many cracks as you need?

If I complete one of the stages and then snuff it on the next, do I have to go back and beat the previous stage again?

Thanks - will be downloading either MM2 or MM9 this evening, probably go for 2 as it is cheaper, although the time attack leaderboards of 9 do appeal!

Never heard of the Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Sega Boy? The first three NES Megaman games with better graphics and sound on the Genesis.

I spent my console time with Sonic and Alex Kidd so Mega Man never got a look in.

Any comments on my other queries? Thanks.

Yes, continues are unlimited. You just have to start from the beginning of a stage (not a checkpoint). Mega Man is just awesome like that.

I love this game and all before, just wish they would bring out all of them, not just 1,2,3, and 9.
@SamuraiBlitz yes there is, only you might get confused with the standard abilities that he does or does not have if you play it in the wrong order.

i was reading comments i read one that said they didnt know what sprite flicker was and it was probally answered all ready but i dont feel like reading all these comments, what it is when you have 2 sprites overlapping ( such as the spinning pipe thingy in tornadomans stage ) were the sprite flashis between the two sprites. i think it was put in to truly capture the 8 bit graphics games like megaman was known for.

I might get this, but why is it that the other mega man VC games are
500pts and this 1000pts? :I

Mega Man 9 is only worth as much as 1/2, but they make us pay twice as much...
bah.
Can it really be THAT expensive or hard to make an 8-bit NES game in this day and age.

There are sure to be a ton of people way ahead of me by now. I've made it as far as the first two Wily stages, and nailed methods for easily not taking a single hit. And about half way through the third stage. At that point it's still doable but . . . GAH! It's just a matter of time, that scarce commodity.

Make sure you have some Wii Remotes with Jackets on them when you play this, because they will go through you wall when you play this. Still a great game.

I gotta say, every level in megaman 9 was not any hard, except for wilys castle. This level is reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeealy hard.... I dislike the checkpoint-system in some areas and it is one loooong level (whith no save-spots) and on top of that: the last boss is ......a monster :S
I love this game... but it might be the hardest megaman game I have ever played. I think Ninja Gaiden is easier X)
Oh well... Its not broken hard. Just hard.......and even though i complain, I would not have it any other way...... (well.... maybe a better checkpoint-system or similar (A) )

This game is brutal in terms of difficulty. It's not just the game that's hard, but the challenges that require lots of practice. Such as beating the game without taking damage. Regardless, this game is fantastic and I would 100% recommend this to anybody who loves Mega Man. Definitely worth the 10 dollars.

8-bit fun in all its heavenly glory.

This is the greatest Mega Man game yet. It manages to be even better than 2 and 3 - to live up to, and actually surpass, the high standards set by such legendary classics is quite the accomplishment. Special mention goes to the (fantastic) music: there is not a single bad or merely average composition here.
