We’re proud to announce that the second of Downloadable Content packs for Mega Man 9 will be available this week. Here’s the run down on what’s coming out.
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. Cost: 100 Wii points.
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. Cost: 100 Wii points.
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. Cost: 100 Wii points.
All three DLC packs are available now on WiiWare Channel today (October 20th, 2008) with XBLA following on October 21th, and PSN releasing October 23th.
Fake man might be fun. Hard will be too hard though.
I'm thinking they are 100 Wii Points for each content?
Looking forward to seeing what the Special Stage is like and to the extra difficulty modes, I have but two words: Bring it.
How much are these things?
Fake Man is interesting, but I don't care for Time Attack mode. Maybe I'll add him when I'm out of stuff to do.
Yeah its odd the press release gave no pricing info! We'll add it later today when we know
@ Dazza - I think that's what I remember from the WSC.
EDIT: Fake Man looks like the police!
Am i right in thinking that Europe again has to wait until Friday?
This is the game that keeps on giving!
How about an "Easy Mode" then, Capcom!?
Fake mans special ability is that he pulls Mega Man's car off the road and writes him up a big traffic ticket$$$
Its really interesting that Capcom included an easy mode in the anniversary collection, but they won't do it for this game. Odd
Why people would pay for an easy mode. The game is already easy.
"Why people would pay for an easy mode. The game is already easy."
There's a few people here that would slap you silly for saying that.
I'll hold off on Hard and Expert mode for a while (or just avoid them altogether), but I'm interested in Fake Man. I wonder what his attack is? Shooting tasers? Cuz that'd be freakin' awesome!
I Agree with DjinnFighter, The shop makes it easier when you collect tons of screws and buy E and M tanks non stop.
If anyone gets expert mode and finishes it, then they need to get themselves a girlfriend.
Bah I can't beat normal mode lol.
I have proto man though which is pretty fun so I might get the new time attack level.
@ WiiloveitOnline LOL!
Just checked, all 3 modes cost 100 Wii points each.
wow... im scared to get this and they're making harder versions!!!!!!!
We're getting these shortly at 100 points and 2 blocks each, though the hard and extreme difficulties are named Hero and Superhero mode. I'm now pretty cautious (and terrified) about going anywhere near the DLC menu. WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!?
I'll have enough points to download these and tetris thankfully.
"Fake Man looks like the police! "
Of Course, that's his disguise... hehehe
im pretty sure much people expected Bass to be the special boss and because of it
much people hate Fake Man, but now Fake Man is my favorite Robot Master XD
I liked him the first time i saw him.
Yay Willy stages!
I can't beat Fake Man.
The new stage is pretty freakin' difficult, even if I did manage to beat it on my 5th try. Overall, though, I'm not too impressed with it. It's just a rush through some of the odder bosses of the game. I haven't downloaded the two harder difficulties, because even though I would enjoy a harder Mega Man 9, I'm going to see what other people have to say first. If I don't spend those 200 points on DLC, I can download Orbient or something instead with the 600 points I have left..
I got the new stage and damn is it hard. You have to fight every mini boss over again. I've only gotten up to the second one, the falling boulders. I can't wait until I can actually get to Fake Man.
When will I be able to play as Roll?
Oh man, that new stage is evil. They bring back the most annoying boss for it, but Fake Man himself, once you recognize his pattern, isn't that bad.
Jewel Satellite, people.
And I really didn't just give away his weakness, per se. You have to figure out how to maximize your damage with it.
lol police man
Cool, I'm going for Fake Man, as soon as I get some left over wiipoints. I'm definitely not getting expert but, I'm sure hard mode will be fun later on, right now I'll just try to finish the game without any items.
So if his name is Fake Man.... does that make him a woman?
I bought Fake Man's stage, but paying for more ass kicking doesn't seem logical. The game is hard enough. Maybe they should release an Easy mode if anything (though I wouldn't get that either).
^ I would get an easy mode. I suck at Mega Man games( especially this one)
100 points is how much I think all the MM9 DLC should be, and I applaud CAPCOM for continuing to support this title with inexpensive extras. PS-Wiiware versions pwns the others by getting the DLC first!
Can anyone here beat the Fake Man stage? I just can't beat it.
Do you get to keep Fake Man's weapon after you beat him?
Yeah, I'm interested to know if Fake Man gives you a new weapon?
Still need my stupid Wii fixed so I can get this freakin' game. And capcom would be LOVELY to re-release Megaman 8 on WiiWare without movies just so I know how the story in that goes
I don't think you get anything for beating Fake Man, since it's a time attack stage and all.
Yeah my thoughts there... need to get online and grab this.
The two new difficulty modes are brutal, to say the very least. Superhero mode is... beyond terrifying. Ironically, the stage I had the most difficulty with on regular difficulty, Tornado Man, is definitely the easiest stage to get through now. The stage I had the least difficulty getting through, Concrete Man, is now absolutely insane. Holy crap, beating the game on these two difficulties is going to be taxing.
Is there going to be anymore DLC after this or is that it?
Also, are they INSANE to release harder difficulties? My god. I would have to agree with WiiLoveItOnline about those who beat Expert Level. When i get the game, i'll be downloading them for sure, but i probably won't finish them. As for the suggestion of an Easy Difficulty, i would offer that for free if i was at Capcom because if some people buy it and find it too hard, that might help. To be fair, once someone has brought the game, Capcom won't care, will they? Probably not
So is this going to be the final pack of MM9 DLC?
