Rockman Inspires 'Robot Ninja Haggle Man'

So, Retro Game Challenge is coming out tomorrow--been looking forward to that for quite some time now. RGC, for the Nintendo DS, is loaded with several retro inspired mini games with a bit of a new gen twist to each. One game in particular, Robot Ninja Haggle Man, piques my interest as it is a direct homage to classic series Rockman:

" Like Capcom's hero, Haggle Man is a robot built by a famous scientist, and has a little sister, a dog, and must defeat an evil scientist. But unlike Mega Man, he must also save a princess (that is to say, "The Princess.")."

Gameplay wise, Haggle Man bares little resemblance to the true blue Rockman formula, as seen here:

  1. *facepalm* "Haggle Man"? The original was "haguruman" - "haguruma" means "cogwheel". If anything, he should be GearMan or something. On the other hand, if we're going for an authentic retro experience, face-palmingly bad translations are par for the course.
