Continuing the neo-retro love Capcom has been garnering on fans of late, with Street Fighter 4, Dark Void Zero and Final Fight: Double Impact, is Mega Man 10 which is released today on WiiWare (and coming to PSN and XBLA on the 11th and 31st of March respectively) at 1000 WiiWare points (or equivalent).
Players can expect more of the 8-bit art, ‘classically inspired bosses’ and chip tune sounds of 2008′s Mega Man 9 NES stylings, as well as a plot revolving around an outbreak of Robot Flu, a virus that is causing the metal mechanicals of 20xx to go out of control.
Most gamers though won’t be here for Mega Man’s deep, rich, moving story lines, they’ll be here for the difficulty, and Mega Man 10 looks set to continue the series infamously steep learning curve. Thankfully, those new to the series will find an easy mode to ease them in a little gentler, but hardcore fans will be happy to know that new Mega Man Challenges await to test even the fastest of response times. Keiji Inafune has reportedly had a hand in this release, so we’ve no doubt over the title’s quality, our only question now is, are we up to the task of completing it?
