First Rockman 9 Footage!

Looks great. Sounds great. Sure to be a winner


  1. Same vid twice?

  2. Hello, nerdgasm.

    anonymous: It's because of differences in quality.

  3. I'm so happy ; Finally a Megaman game that looks GOOD.

  4. Pfft, says the video has been removed when I click on it....

  5. This file is a rip from niconico douga. The original is here, if you're registered there:
    The Japanese commercial, original.
    Something interesting about it: The ending of the commercial gives these copyright credits:

    (C) Capcom Japan
    (C) Capcom USA
    (C) Daletto Co, Ltd.
    (C) (kanji)/Gold Lightning International co, Ltd.

    Not a sign of "Inticreates" on there...


    Just found this too. Actual gameplay footage? It's four minutes long, and contains some familiar elements- the lead in to MM2's Wily fortress, including the eyebrow wiggle, first level music, final boss-dragon and apparently some weapon-reuse (something that seems identical to the Leaf Shield but manueverable like the Metal Blade)- but there is a weapon in use at times that matches one used in screenshots and the Spike Shoes are used strategically throughout the level. It certainly appears to be legitimate footage.

    Hmmm, maybe legit maybe not. The video was put up in November, way before all the RM9 hoopla started.

    Actually, it kinda looks like a hacked version of RM2.

    Meh, I wouldn't look to much into it.

  8. I guess my workplace was blocking the video, I was able to get to it from home. Stupid work :P

  9. So excited... finally, after ten years, Mega Man's back. This is going to be a great game.

    What I didn't realize was how much they were going for the Mega Man 2 aesthetics -- from the video, it sounds like the sound of Mega Man getting hit is coming from MM 2 as opposed to the different sound from MM 3-6. Not sure I like that, but whatever, it's very minor. Also, the Metool was obviously the MM 1 version... wow. 8-bit presentation is great, but do they have to reach that far back for so much? A lot of people seem to forget that all the NES MMs after 2 were great too and had their own qualities to contribute. :(

    Still, these thingd are very minor -- there's almost no way this game can't be fantastic. :D

    @ disaffected --

    Is there any way to view that video without signing up at Nicovideo? Even though it's likely a hacked MM 2 or something, it sounds like an interesting watch...
