Capcom is, of course, still playing the cat and mouse game with the media regarding which platforms Mega Man 9 is headed toward.
According to Ars Technica, who originally broke the story, Capcom has told them that “the game is currently slated ‘for WiiWare only’ and that the information data indicating otherwise in the E3 roster was a mistake on its part.”
Be prepared to hear more at E3 in a few weeks.
Ah, it’s good to be able to say this. See, we knew about this from the E3 intinerary ourselves, but Capcom asked us not to say anything, and so we opted to respect their wishes.
But thanks to Ars Technica, the truth is out there: Mega Man 9 is not exclusive to WiiWare, but is also going to be available on the Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. So now, no matter what system you own, you can get your fill of retro Blue Bomber goodness.
What’s that? You didn’t know Mega Man 9 was confirmed? Well, check out our report of Nintendo Power’s exclusive interview with creator Keiji Inafune for the full scoop thus far.
Of course, this should come as little surprise, as the OLFC did mark the game as “multiplatform” when they rated it.
