Mega Man 10 coming in March

Mega Man 10 coming in March

Capcom has just issued a press release saying that highly anticipated action platformer Mega Man 10 will be hitting the WiiWare service on March 1st, 2010.

As for other download services, the release dates are:

  • PSN - March 11th
  • XBLA - March 31st

There are also new details on special weapons used and game modes:

Commando Bomb
After launching the Commando Bomb, press up or down on the + Control Pad to make it turn at a 90 degree angle. The blast spreads horizontally (or vertically) and follows the contours of the landscape. This can be used to break through certain walls to get hidden items!

Wheel Cutter
Press the Attack Button once to attach the Wheel Cutter to your arm, and press the Attack Button again to launch it (it follows the contours of the landscape). You can launch it 3 times and it?s effective to attack enemies at a distance. You can attach the Wheel Cutter to your arm and dart at enemies!

Triple Blade
You can fire tri-directional blades and attack multiple enemies at one time. There are two patterns: surface-to-air on the ground, and air-to-surface in mid-jump.

Thunder Wool
You can launch a thunder cloud that slowly rises and a lighting bolt shoots straight down from the cloud.

Solar Blaze
Splits apart and launches firebombs (left and right) after a set period of time. Effective when you are pinned between two enemies.

Chill Spike
Launch a freezing liquid which flies in a parabolic trajectory. An enemy hit by the freezing liquid will freeze and become unable to move.

Rebound Striker
You can throw a rubber super ball straight and diagonally up or down. As it gets faster and stronger with each successive bound, you can build up power and hit the target to inflict maximum damage!

Water Shield
A rotating shield of water surrounds Mega Man. Pressing the Attack Button once more deactivates the water shield and hurls high-speed drops of water that spiral outward.

Brand new Mega Man Challenges mode is back!
The Mega Man Challenges mode from MM9 has been upgraded! The Mega Man Challenges allows you to practice in stages by clearing various challenges and gives novice players a chance to master the basic controls before attempting the main story mode!Whether you are a novice or an expert, you can brush-up on your game and polish it to perfection!

Comparison between Easy Mode and Normal Mode!
Easy Mode is featured for people who gave up on MM9 or have not played an action game for a long time. In addition, this would be a perfect mode for people who aren?t used to traditional Mega Man difficulty and need a little assistance.

Are you ready for the challenge?

Alright, let's hope Capcom's gone through the proper Megaman checklist on this one.



9 was cool but a little too crazy in the pick up and play difficulty dept for a lot of players. Bring 10 on and I will destroy it like 9 and every other mega man game I have played in the series.

Those release dates are just far enough apart to make fans go crazy and just buy it on the Wii for pure impatience. YAY.
