It's been confirmed in Nintendo Power magazine that Mega Man 9 will be heading to WiiWare as a downloadable game.
Fans of the NES originals (Mega Man 2 FTW) will be pleased to know that it's probably a 2D side-scroller. A number of enemies are already known:
Dr Wily's back, this time the story revolves around him blaming Dr Light for all the robot carnage taking place. Mega Man sets out to clear his creator's name, bringing the real culprit to justice.
Mega Man 9 sets out to be a real homage to the 8-bit classics, you'll control Mega Man using the Wiimote held sideways. The music will also recreate the blips and bloops from an age gone by.
Bravo Capcom, bravo.
