Mega Man 10 announced for WiiWare

New Mega Man game to feature three playable characters?

Early scans of next month's Nintendo Power reveal that Capcom is developing Mega Man 10 with an eye towards cashing in on the 8-bit nostalgia of the previous game while making the traditionally challenging level designs "more accessible."

Unlike critically-lauded predecessor Mega Man 9 (which saw near-simultaneous release across WiiWare, PSN and XBox Live,) the next Mega Man has only been confirmed for a WiiWare release.

Players can expect to play as either Mega Man, Proto Man (also available in Mega Man 9 as downloadable content) or an unannounced third protagonist. The actual game mechanics appear to be almost identical to earlier titles as Mega Man jumps from platform to platform blasting enemies and seeking a cure for the robotic equivalent of swine flu by defeating the expected Eight Robot Masters (though Capcom has designed an Easy mode to address complaints about the insane difficulty spikes of Mega Man 9.)

Also, the newest Robot Master is Sheep Man. Make of that what you will.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
