Yep, Mega Man 10 Is Multiplatform

By Spencer . December 15, 2009 . 8:56pm

imageNintendo Power announced it, but Mega Man 10 isn’t only for Wii. Just like Mega Man 9, the game will be available as a digital download for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 too.

 

This week’s issue of Famitsu had a bit about Mega Man 10, mentioned Blues (aka Protoman) mode, and listed it as a game for all three current consoles. A different strategy compared to Mega Man 9, which was locked on WiiWare in Japan for one year.

 

Keeping with tradition, Capcom also announced the subtitle for Mega Man 10. In Japan, the game is called Mega Man 10: The Threat from Space.

    Cant wait. >8(

    Got 9 on the Wii before (and regret it since holding the remote sideways really isn’t the best, the start button to pull up the menu is out of the way..), will get 10 on PS3 this time, dual shock 3 a much better controller among the three.

      You don’t own a classic controller? That’s how I played Megaman 9, and it was great. Even better with the classic controller pro.

      I’m torn between Wii and PS3 for this release, I’m only leaning towards PS3 due to trophies…

      • Aoshi00

        yeah, I forgot, I did use the classic (and have gotten the Pro since then but haven’t used it on MM9), but I was annoyed w/ constantly needing to hook up the classic plus changing batteries and such, instead of just using the dual shock 3, which I thought felt very comfortable after trying out the PS3 demo. Like how I regret getting Bionic Commando Rearmed on the 360 instead of PS3. MM9 didn’t have trophies at that time right? I actually thought about getting it on 360 for the achievement before but you know the d-pad doesn’t work very well..

        • http://gplus.to/rootbeerking RootBeerKing

          You know that Bionic Commando Rearmed has trophies now, right? So why the regret?

          • Aoshi00

            no, I meant I regret getting BC Rearmed on the 360 which had a worse d-pad, although I could still manage to play the game w/ the analog stick. I found out later the PS3 demo played so much better. So they finally patched it w/ trophies huh. Should’ve bought it again when it was on sale for $5.

            Ahh I thought you bought it for PS3 ;) my mistake haha.

      • daizyujin

        If the trophies are anything like the achievements were in MM9, they will be pull your hair out maddening.

    • MadMirko

      Tried the CC Pro?

      Regarding MM9: Besides the Wii version I have only seen the PS3 version, and judging from that you made the right decision when going for the Wii version. The PS3 version lacks the crisp visuals, I suspect they botch something while upscaling the graphics. There is something of a blurry fuzziness to them, which doesn’t belong in an 8bit game. The Wii version looks like the game is supposed to look (provided you set your console to 4:3).

      • Aoshi00

        That’s what I read too, that the Wii ver had the most true 8-bit graphics.. but I actually did like the filtering on PS3 making things smoother and the way it looks stretched to 16:9.. playing a platformer w/ black on both sides was a little distracting, so I thought it was a worthy compromise. Now that you mentioned it, I did use the classic controller before, I was annoyed I needed to unhook the nunchuck and hook up the classic every time to play Megaman 9 (a minor inconvenience, I know..), also I didn’t have rechargeable batteries for the remote before, and somehow playing MM9 seemed to go thru AAs very quick. It’s just that I tried out the PS3 demo shortly after buying the game on the Wii, then I really liked how the Dual shock 3 plays.

        • MadMirko

          Well, if you liked it, don’t let anyone stop you. :)

          I think I’m going to go with the Wii version again, if only for the added convenience of having all of them (VC, too) on one box. I did play 9 with the remote turned sideways (and liked it), but I’ll try the Pro this time around.

      • daizyujin

        See I felt the Wii was the blurriest to me but my TV is an LCD and it seems all Wii games have that blur to them, but I just attribute that to the fact it isn’t running in native resolution.

        • jarrodand

          MM9 runs in 256 x 240, like NES. Also like NES games on Virtual Console, you’ll need to set your Wii to 4:3 to get native res and avoid the “widescreen stretch” blur.

          • daizyujin

            I know that. I know to put it in full frame. What I mean is that the image on the 360 is still outputted in 720p if that is what you have the system set to. It may not do anything for the overall picture quality, but since it is being outputted at the native resolution, it reduces blur on my LCD. Of course, since the screen runs at 60 hertz, it has some motion blur, but that is going to be no matter what system it is on.

          • jarrodand

            I’m not sure what the problem is then? Wii outputs in true low res (unlike 360/PS3), if you set your TV accordingly it should have the crispest picture. And this should actually be more noticeable on an LCD than a plasma/crt.

            I have MM9 on both Wii and 360 and the Wii version is definitely crisper on my Samsung LCD. It’s basically pixel perfect.

  • Advent_Andaryu

    I’m really excited too but… “The Threat from Space”? Are you serious? The classic Mega Man series needs no subtitle… Why start at 10? I know it’s just for the Japanese version, and the US version will probably be different but I don’t think it’s needed.

    Also, I hope Blues doesn’t take MASSIVE damage from each little hit…. :[

    • Aoshi00

      It’s just the Jpn version, like Rockman 9 Wily no Yabou (Wily’s Ambition). The Jpn Megman games have always had subtitles.

      • Kris

        I thought it was Yabou no Fukkatsu…
        But you’re right, all of the Rockman games have subtitles.

        • Aoshi00

          doh, yeah, that’s what I meant :) too many “ambition” in the past Rockman games or game titles for that matter, like Nobunaga’s Ambition :)

    • fallen

      Yeah, the Japanese games always had subtitles afaik, but I hope they do keep the tradition of dropping those in the US

    • Chow

      But it’s a threat… FROM SPACE!
      Maybe he’ll fight Space Wily and become Space Megaman!

    • EdgeKun

      As already said by fallen, the japanese Rockman games always had subtitles. At least as far back as 2, I don’t remember if 1 had one or not.

      I hear Capcom was listening and noting that fans wanted the original series to bridge over to X, but a subtitle like “The Threat from Space” just has me thinking it may not happen. -.-
