Capcom's Mega Man 9 Press Kit Goes Retro

In a move to further add even more 8-bit goodness to the upcoming release of their Mega Man 9 WiiWare title, Capcom is sending out a limited number of retro-themed press kits to various media organizations.

The kit comes in a cardboard case that's shaped like a classic NES cartridge box and features an actual replica of an NES cart that will house the cd-rom disc. It's worth noting that while this cd-rom does contain artwork and game information, it doesn't include the actual Mega Man 9 game.

Early rumors place the limited number of these unique collectibles at around 200, so there's no doubt they will eventually become quite valuable to the lucky few that have one. You can bet if we're lucky enough to get our hands on one, a fight will quickly ensue here at WiiWare World over it.

Mega Man 9 is still being rumored to be up for release in the US this coming Monday, followed by Europe the following Friday. We'll have a full review of the game up shortly after the game's release. Until then, you can take a look at these awesome press kits below.
