MegaMan 9 XBLA Achievements Are Frickin Hard
One thing is certain about MegaMan 9; It's going to be tough. Capcom appears to be further honoring MM9's difficulty with numerous achievements that only the seasoned veterans can master. Can you tackle these feats?
Clear the game in 60 minutes or less.
Clear the game without dying.
Clear the game without continuing.
Clear the game 5 times in 1 day.
Defeat the 8 Bosses with the Mega Buster.
Defeat a Boss without getting damaged.
View all twelve Achievements and their rewards at "Inside MGC." (Also, take a gander at the Robot Master's sprites on the left side of the page. Sweet!)
As for Wii and PS3 versions, no official word if either of the two will have a similar system. However, Wiifanboy's playthrough of MM9 implied that the Wii version will contain something along the lines of Achievements:
"The only hint of newness was found in the control explanation sheet -- the minus button will eventually go to the "Challenge List," a feature that wasn't yet revealed."
