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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
