Mega Man 9 Gets DLC Next Month

By Blake Ellison, Sep 22, 2008 1:45pm PDT Capcom's Mega Man 9, a throwback to the 8-bit days, is getting a taste of 21st-century game economics with downloadable content coming in October.

Five add-ons have been announced so far including two higher difficulty settings, an Endless Attack mode, and a new Time Attack stage. The ability to play as Mega Man teammate Proto Man rounds out the five.

Mega Man 9, developed by Inti Creation, is now available on the Wii Shop Channel, with Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Store releases coming later this week. It is expected that the DLC will hit all three platforms.

Details, prices and release dates follow, as reproduced from Wii Fanboy:

  • Endless Attack, October 6, 300 Wii Points: "Test your skills on a stage without end. Try to break the record for getting the farthest. Results will be displayed in the Rankings. Not compatible with Challenges."
  • Proto Man Mode, October 6, 200 Wii points: "Play the game as Proto Man. You can use the shield while jumping. Some of Proto Man's abilities may differ from Mega Man's. There is no story for Proto Man. Not compatible with Rankings or Challenges."
