Mega Man 9 confirmed for WiiWare

Now maybe all of those Megaman other series haters will finally shut up now that they are getting Mega Man 9 for WiiWare. The fact of the matter is that it looks just like the old games so I don't know how people will feel about it. Some information from Nintendo Power from my friends over at GoNintendo:

Robot Masters

Magma Man
Galaxy Man
Jewel Man
Concrete Man
Hornet Man
Plug Man
Tornado Man
Splash Woman

- Dr. Wily returns
- Story: Dr. Wily blames Dr. Light for robot master attacks
- various level hazards: lava, gravity-defying magnetic platforms, Mega Man clones
- attacks gained from Robot Masters: Galaxy Man’s Black Hole Bombs
- development handled by Inti Creates (Mega Man Zero, ZX, Battle Chip Challenge)
- controls: Wiimote NES style, just as you would expect it to be
- Rush returns
- 8-bit style was chosen to ‘please fans’
- 8-bit music
- 8-bit cut-scenes
- difficultly on-par with NES games
- return of classic enemies, as well as new ones
- Will Protoman be playable? “you’ll have to wait and see.”
- hopes in surpassing the quality of Mega Man 2

I never got to experience the original Mega Man games and since they haven't put them on the US Virtual Console, I guess I'll have to wait for this game to come to WiiWare. I don't think it will take that long as the game received a rating from the Australian OFLC, so all we have to do is wait for a rating from ESRB and then we'll get it soon! I'm sure all the Mega Man original fans are jumping for joy like they just snorted pixie sticks.
