Mega Man 9 gets a release date

For WiiWare, PSN and Xbox Live.

Capcom has revealed the WiiWare, PSN and Xbox Live release dates for Mega Man 9.

First up is the WiiWare version, which arrived in the US on Monday for 1000 Wii Points (GBP 7.00 / EUR 10.00). It's likely to be part of our weekly WiiWare update on Friday.

The PSN offering is next in line and due to appear on the US PS3 Store for USD 9.99 tomorrow. Our version may take an extra week or two to appear, but keen fans can always buy from the American shop.

Last will be the Xbox Live version on Wednesday 1st October. This will cost 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60), and should be obtainable simultaneously by European users.

Mega Man 9 continues the classic 2D platforming series that last expanded on PlayStation and SEGA Saturn in 1996.

NES-inspired graphics return, along with all the hand-attached-weaponry, bosses and challenging levels that made Mega Man so popular. It was either that or his tight-fitting space clobber.

Head over to Eurogamer TV to see Mega Man 9 in action.
