One year ago tomorrow, Mega Man 9 made its triumphant debut on Nintendo's WiiWare service. Since then, the game has gone on to earn praise from critics and fans around the world, constantly finding itself in numerous "top tens" and taking home several "best digital title" awards.
To celebrate, take some time to reflect on the Mega Man 9 experience. In the end, did you enjoy the game? Were you a fan of the retro/8-bit style? If you could change one thing about MM9, what would it be? etc.
Also, for nostalgia purposes, you might want to check out one of my older posts from '08, "The Shadow Retrospective", which chronicled the events and leaks that led up to MM9's announcement. It's a fun little read; you'll get a kick out of how accurate those leaks turned out!
And, before I forget, Rockman Perfect Memories is celebrating the festivity with a series of live stream events. Site admin, Vixy will be playing through various games in the series several days this week. Check it out at Vixy's channel here.
Well, that's that. Happy one year anniversary, MM9! Hope to see that inevitable sequel sooner than later!
UPDATE: Capcom's doing something special tomorrow. No, its got nothing to do with the "undiscovered secret", unfortunately.
