Mega Man 10 Coming To All Three Home Consoles (Update)

This week's Famitsu is slowly beginning to leak out, and according to early reports, Mega Man 10 will indeed arrive on all three home consoles (Wii, PS3, X360), as indicated by the magazine's preview of the game:

The preview also touts a couple new screenshots, and reveals the Japanese subtitle for the game: "Rockman 10: Threat From Outer Space!!" 

More info as it comes in.

UPDATE: The Mega Man Network has obtained clearer scans :


Based on the dialogue, we can conclude the Roll does indeed succumb to Robotenza, and Mega Man seeks help from Dr. Wily and Proto Man.

  1. Oh god. The new Famitsu is out, AND it has a story on Mega Man 10?! I hope it has news and screenshots beyond what the Nintendo Power story had. :)

    Not that Nintendo Power didn't deliver the goods... I'm just beyond excited for any new news!

  2. More news? Hopefully, that'll mean more RMs. :)

  3. Oh, and I see Rockman 10's subtitle listed as part of the game's title as well! I wonder how soon we'll get a translation... :)

  4. Now someone translate the game's subtitle.

  5. Not suprised. I just hope that there's more info on MM10.

  6. I'm loving the cutscene art shown in the scan. From what I can tell (which admittedly isn't much), it looks even smoother than what we got in Mega Man 9. :)

  7. So, Robotenza is linked to something otherworldly? (Wily may get off the hook this time, but I doubt it)

  8. Don't you just love the screenshot of Light and Mega Man talking to a despondent Wily? I'm sure the story just involves another one of Wily's deceptions that will ultimately have no bearing at all on the overall plot, nothing to do with the X series, or anything. In other words, the game will once again be 100% devoted to the non-story elements. That's my prediction, and it's really such a pity...knowing Capcom, I'd say it's likely.

  9. I just hope that the sub-title, plus the fact that this will be the tenth megaman game with no sign of Mavericks, Sigma, or Zero will put to bed, once and for all, the nonsense that Megaman Classic and Megaman X are connected.

  10. LOL THE THIRD PLAYABLE CHARACTER WILL BE DUO. BASS FANS GET KICKED IN THE JEWELS AGAIN BY CAPCOM OLOLOLOLOOL

  11. Threat from Space? Hmmm. Who knows. Maybe this marks an 8-Bit duo return? I also do not think they are doing it as faithfully in 8-Bit as MM9 was. That cutscene pic looks way to articulated from that scan. Seems like this may be a super game with just classic style sprites.

  12. Mike :

    I don't see why you'd want a bigger story. It's not a RPG, the less annoying cut-scenes there are the better. Besides I don't see what's interesting in developing a plot that can't be anything but ridiculously bad (come on it's Megaman).

  13. Is this going to be like the Andromeda Strain? Sure sounds that way! XD

  14. REHASH & PROFIT!

    I knew it... lol capcom

  15. Hmmm. I wonder if the "Threat from Outer Space!" is Robotenza or something else? After all, RockMan 9 wasn't name after the robot law... though I guess you could twist it that way. Who knows I guess.

  16. From what little I can make out, it looks like the rumor that Roll is infected with Robotenza was correct.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Threat from Outer Space, eh?

    Those Robot Masters don't seem very otherworldly to me. But hey, reference Mega Man V or Duo; I'm cool with that.

    The Dark Energy came from space; Wily used that.
    What's to say the prototype virus didn't come from space as well?

  18. The 3rd playable character is Sheep Man, because he's more awesome them Bass and Duo together!

    ReplyDelete
  19. No big surprise about it coming to XBLA and PSN. The subtitle is interesing. It could be hinting at Duo but since he's an ally the "threat/menace" part of the subtitle doesn't make much sense. Unless Wily screws with him. I'm just excited about the ice boss. Ice levels>anything else.

  20. Flake --

    Uh, what "nonsense" that Mega Man Classic and X are connected? News flash: they are connected. They've been connected ever since the intro of Mega Man X1 told us that Dr. Light created X. Then Mega Man X4 later revealed that Wily constructed Zero, a connection further strengthened by Sigma's final line in Mega Man X2, Zero's ending in Mega Man X5, Bass' ending in Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters... need I go on? There's no ambiguity, no room for debate. They are connected. Whether the Classic series will ever directly reference the X series remains to be seen, but that doesn't change what Capcom's written: that X and Zero were created by Light and Wily, who are ostensibly Classic series characters.

    I'm surprised this needs to be explained, honestly. o_O

  21. That sure looks like the Mega Ball to me, guys!

    Yea!

  22. MaverickHunterAsh-He's joking.

    Really now, unless you're trolling us, I don't see HOW you could see it as anything but a joke.

  23. @Anon -

    I've never trolled anywhere. Never will. You don't know me, though, so I don't blame you for not knowing that. ;)

    I thought he was serious. Still looks like he was to me. If I'm wrong, then I'm glad -- no one should have to give such an obvious explanation to another Mega Man fan.
