Games Radar's Exclusive Look At RM9: Pics, Info, Interview With Inafune
Games Radar has put together a large preview of Rockman 9, containing new pics and info.
A quick summary:
-RM9 literally is a NES/Famicom game. No fancy tricks or gimmicks
-As stated earlier, the story involved Dr. Wily convincing the public that the new batch of Robot Masters is Dr. Light's doing. Thus, Rockman sets out to prove his father's innocence by defeating the RMs. (There are even Dr. L doors in front of the RM chamber instead of Dr. W)
-Article contains summaries on each Robot Masters stage.
-Splash Woman was designed by Inafune himself,
-You can purchase abilities and upgrades at Dr. Light's shop. Upgrades include the infamous Energy Balancer, Spike Shoes, and the ability to take off Rock's helmet and play the game helmetless.

-Stage Select screen contained options that cannot be discussed until E3.
-RM9 is slated for a fall release.
