Mega Man 9 to cost 1000 Wii Points

Save some money as well as the world.

Mega Man 9 will be sold for 1000 Wii Points in Japan, according to Famitsu (via Kotaku), which is about GBP 7 or EUR 10 in the real world.

Capcom wasn't immediately available to clarify European pricing for the game, which is due out in Japan in September.

Mega Man 9 is a 2D platform game not just in the same guise as the old-days NES versions, but designed to look a bit like one too.

As you can see from the screenshots, it's about as old-school as possible, and will adhere to the series' traditions of eight bosses to fight at the end of long platform levels.

Control will be by holding the Wii remote sideways like a NES pad. We're hoping to get a go on it at E3 next week - Capcom confirmed last night that it would be there along with many of its friends.
