It is already connected on Capcom-Unity. That doesn't really look like Bass either. Or Duo. It looks more like a Robotic Wily.
Well, I've been following this all day and trying to get the pic completed... it's an awesome pic (cyborg, faceless Wily is surprisingly disturbing), but I'm disappointed Bass is nowhere to be found. Again.The writing's on the wall so far: Bass is going to be left out of the story again. He's nowhere in the promotional art or anything. He might still be the third playable character via DLC, but it's still inexcusable if he's left out of the story again. I hope I'm just jumping to conclusions, but I'm afraid I'm not. :(
It's Dr.Wily, as predicted yesterday. Ha, Bass... Duo... using such drawings? lol Anyway, I think that's a huge fail: big mystery & race for nothing.
this robo bird on robo wilys shoulder means that reggae makes his first appearance ingame?
Cool art, but wow did they make it seem like a bigger deal than it actually was
...Wow, how pointless. THAT'S what they were keeping people in suspense over? Give me a break. Here I am, hoping they were FINALLY going to reveal the third playable character, but they didn't. How disappointing.In fact, at this point, I'm beginning to question whether or not there actually IS a third playable charater, and that it wasn't just a rumor (like the co-op thing). Honestly, if Bass actually WAS in this game, you'd think they'd try to put more emphasis on THAT, rather than just Proto Man being playable from the start.
Blade Man, Solar Man, and Sheep Man are featured in this image.
What... in the hell is that? It looks too over the top to be Wily. I know that they are trying to make the characters look a little off on purpose, but this robot is barely recognizable as Wily, save for the metal mustache. It looks too crazy to be Bass too, although I think that it looks more like Bass than Wily. Oh well, at least we don't have long to wait until we get a definitive answer on who that is, and who the third character is.
*looks at metallic mustache and suspicious "skull-ish" face*. Cool, cyborg Wil-WAIT!*looks everywhere*Where's Bass?!*looks again. Bass is nowhere to be found*FANRAGE, GO!*flees*Now, being serious. I don't really care too much about this artwork, or the fact that it didn't reveal too much (Cyborg Wily lookalike is "threat from outer space"? Was it Wily's creation? Is then Dr. Wily the real threat? 2 CASTLES?! HELL YEAH!). I just want the game to be more challenging and fun. And that Yamada uses his own composition style :D.
Seems it's just another weird Wily. Maybe he might equip that armor in-game and fight as he sorta did with the Alien form in MM2.Well, to expand on whats been said above, its quite simple. Like I and others have said plenty of times; MegaMan 10 is taking the faux 8-Bit gimmick and running with it. No progressing story from MM8 just like 9 didn't have. No established characters such as Bass or Duo being in the story or making any appearance thus far. If the third final piece is this anticlimactic, I am betting the third character is Roll or some shit. Or Light. Something unnecessary and trying to be cute. Like MHAsh said above, I am really hoping I am wrong. But lets face it guys, is what I speak so incorrect? Playing MegaMan, classic or other, is fun and never really gets old. It's timeless. However at the rate Capcom is going with this mess it will get old and fast, as if it's being forced. The complete lack of continuity is astounding. Creativity is seeming to go somewhat as well. MegaMan games are going to be no better than Pac Man games it seems, lol. So having all that been said, heres hoping the artwork is still just an NES box art gimmick (hmm, more of that word?) and the third character will be revealed soon as well as have a role in the story. I mean, "Threat from Outer Space!" must mean something, or is that some classic tagline gimmick too...?
has anyone noticed sheepman, blademan, and... the sun based boss? interesting to see them like that. i wonder what the rest of the robot masters would look like drawn like this?
Very nice. But is that supposed to be Dr. Wily? Looks freaky.Also, what happened to the moon?
Don't you guys realize that Bass looks like a robotic Wily as it is? The fins on Bass's head are supposed to represent Wily's wacky hair. That third guy is Bass dressed up in a similar way to Mega Man and Proto Man.It's Bass, guys, just a really manned up version of Bass.
@ Josh: no theyre not. Bass was designed after a cobra with an arched flap. THAT is why he has the face markings.@Megamac: Wow, it sure didnt take long for fans to finally see why I was so pissed at 9 and 10 in 8 bit retro style. because they will constantly be remaking megaman 2 all over and over again. No real progession aside form new gameplay. no new ELEMENTS to it at that.they will continue making the "retro bad cover" artwork for it, instead of bringing the actual artwork from Japan. Actually, I find it AMAZING that with the limitations their sticking to, they actually made Protoman an in game character.
"The fins on Bass's head are supposed to represent Wily's wacky hair. That third guy is Bass dressed up in a similar way to Mega Man and Proto Man."O.O...*epic facepalms*Is it me or that sounds like a desperate try to ignore the fact that Bass could NOT be the "third playable character"?"In fact, at this point, I'm beginning to question whether or not there actually IS a third playable charater, and that it wasn't just a rumor (like the co-op thing)"^THIS.
Poor Moon, it keeps getting KA-BONGED in the course of fiction (see: DBZ). ;_;Gotta keep reminding myself the subtitle is "Threat from Outer Space", so there's still a great chance it's Duo. On the same hand, I'm starting to wonder if the Bass blueprint in 9 doesn't have some text or coding around it hinting at his involvement in 10, and thus the MM9 Secret.
I have a feeling that has something to do with Roboenza.
I doubt that this art was ever meant to reveal the third character. I think that the Capcom Unity post about there being a "third" got peoples hopes up, since this mysterious third character is the juiciest bit of info about this game that people are waiting for. Just because someone isn't in this art doesn't mean that they won't be playable in the game. Protoman wasn't on the Mega Man 9 art, and he was playable through DLC. I'm guessing that this new character will be DLC as well, or an unlockable that you get when you beat the game. I just think that it is too early to reveal this new character yet--if there even is a third character to begin with.
This is fucking stupid, it reminds me of my drawings when i was 12 yro. And what´s the deal with those pictures? seriously, why does capcom do this shit? You know, there´s some guy on youtube making a megaman x fangame called "corrupted x" or something like this, where it shows a kickass fangame that honestly deserves to be mentioned on this blog instead of this facepalm-attempt to get some MM fans´s attention.
@kotiplex:This art is OFFICIAl. It's not fan-art.
Woohoo! Let's hear for kotipeltox and his intelligent input on anything MM10 related!/sarcasm
^ ^ ^ ^ numetaler detectedPD: maybe it isn´t a fanmade...but a dumbmade
Umm, no offense, kotipeltox, but you kind of proved his (or her) point just now.
No Wily or Forte! Well, a guy can dream...
Well it does say on the top of the middle Duel Fx TWIN(2, two) Engines.
@Anyone complaining that the picture didn't reveal anything: Neither did MM9's boxart. Besides, Capcom's already lost the secret to the identities of the Robot Masters. Can't they at least hold on to whatever else they have? Geez.@Anyone doubting a third playable character: Apparently, you guys forgot about the Nintendo Power that confirmed MM10's existence.
@Tag:Yeah, I was going to mention that. NP could be wrong, or Capcom could have ran out of time...but it wasn't a rumor. It was stated to the press.Actually, the RUMOR was that the third playable character would be DLC. So anyone hoping for Bass or whoever from the beginning was actually...hoping a rumor was wrong.
^If Capcom runs out of time to put in 1 character in a game meant to imitate an NES game, you won't believe how much credibility they would lose.
Who is that masked man with a robotic bird??? I don't get it... is it Bass? Duo? Or someone else??? I hope it's not Dr. Wily that turns out into a cyborg like Dr. Weil did with Reploid parts for the final battle...
Looks like Dr. Wily PULLED THE MOON OUT OF IT'S OOORBIT!...Or, at least a part of it...
*musashiAA OK, god damn, I'm sorry for having an opinion. stupid, trendy internet term to you too, calm down and get some sunshine.
The 3rd pic it looks like bass and with his new bird pet like megaman thats what i think....
@Josh:But MAAAAANNN XD. That's the wackiest thing I've ever heard xD. OK, sorry for being too harsh :D.
The Japanese subtitle is "The threat from space" Maybe Wily is an alien again.
Proto in a weapon sword that means it maybe came from Blademan I think thats my guess...
All I know is that if there isn't a third playable character, there truly would be no point to this game other than to run through the same formula, slightly mixed with Roboenza. That's it. They foolishly discarded the co-op option which, with their professional team, should have been able to do it or keep it. I mean, one person is able to do that with the fan game MegaMan 2.5D. Quite frankly, Mega Man fangames are advancing greatly over what Capcom is dishing out. Is that sad? Recently we have Zero Collection. Nothing too new at all, just a compilation. OSS, a remake mostly and MegaMan 10...a remake mostly. Is this really all you have to offer us, Capcom/IntiCreates? Is this really how you should treat your mascot, your legacy? I think it's high time for an explosive comeback. Legends 3, X9 and MHX2 please.
Koti was amazing if he could draw that good at twelve... amazing.No clue what in the world the purple thing is. I GUESS Wily, like a lot of people seem to think. But he's practically unrecognizable if that's the case...
DOES NOBODY NOTICE THE FUCKING GIANT ROBOT MEGA AND PROTOMAN ARE STANDING?There's your third character! I bet it's Duo. Or Bass got really big.
Finally reggae debut as dr wilys pet bird.
>MusashiAA You were desperately trying to sound authoritative and insulting for no reason. You weren't being harsh, you were just being an asshole.
The third playable character is Wily using a robotic armor, similar to Mega Man's Soccer but smaller and stronger. When you fight against him in the last stages, he uses this armor, and when playing as him you fight against Mega and Proto like the Vile mode in Maverick Hunter X. But those are the penultimate bosses, the final boss is Roll!IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW! (but I didn't understand it...)
@Last AnonThat would be pretty neat. Fighting along side Wily in a battle suit would make a very odd twist and it could very well work like the Vile mode did. Roll going all Iris-infected as the final boss would be very epic as well. However I sadly, truly doubt Capcom has the creative scale to do that when it comes to MegaMan these days...
Bss have to be the third playable character btw this picture of bass is awesome:http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/megaman/images/6/6a/Basscommando.png
While we wait for the new character in the up coming Megaman 10, Sonic from Sega is having a new character too Hmmmm.... its like having a similarity....
Is it just me or does Rock look more like X in the picture and doesnt Blues look more like his EXE counterpart
@Last AnonSonic's always having new characters. I think the thrill went away when they all sucked.
