IGN has gotten a hold of several new Rockman 9 screen shots, most notably, pics depicting Concrete Man, Tornado Man and Magma Man in both their sprite and artwork forms.

Concrete Man:
Created to construct a dam, Concrete man can actually design a dam and supervise its entire construction. He has stubborn a stubborn personality and will tell off any lazy robots.

Tornado Man:

  1. If I didn't know any better I would have said those were images of Ground Man, Gyro Man and Napalm Man!

  2. Notice these bosses have similarities with MM2:

    Concreteman with Heatman (spits concrete instead of fire)
    Magmaman with Flashman (the ground looks similar, but reversed)
    Tornadoman with Airman (small tornado attacks)

    I'm glad to see new artwork and screenshots, but... how much will you spoil the game, Capcom?

  3. Sexay. :D

    *compares her assumptions sketches with official art* Dang, I was pretty close with Concrete and Magma...

  4. Man, this blows...

    Concrete Man is a redone of Guts Man, Tornado Man is Gyro Man and Magna Man is Needle Man.


  5. I really thought when I saw those silhouettes of the Robot Masters, Plug Man was the one that Tornado Man was, guess I was wrong.


    Green? CHECK
    Head wings? CHECK
    Built to supervise and control world weather and climate? CHECK
    Has a flipping tornado attack(ala ZX)? CHECK CHECK and CHECK.

    So, Leviathan and Harpuia have been given NEW LIFE in the Classic timeline! XD Hee hee!

  7. They all look nice. Tornado Man looks a heck of a lot better than Top Man ever did!

  8. oh dear. I'm not a uber fan of classic, but I had a dream last night that I played it. O_o

  9. Magma Man looks like Needle Man. :p

  10. I agree with shine. TornadoMan looks a lot like GyroMan and MagmaMan is almost a copy of NapalmMan. I still think that they look cool, but..... yeah.

  11. Concrete Man has the face of Guts Man, Tornado Man has Gyro Man's propellers, and Magma Man has the arms of Napalm Man... Recoloring 8-bit? C'mon Capcom!
