Mega Man 9 Box Art Skips 10, Cranks to 11

Capcom's Mega Man 9, already garnering attention for its old-school style, has cranked up its coolness to eleven with a packaging-related tribute to its 8-bit roots.

A few friends told me on E3's show floor that playing Mega Man 9 was like being a kid all over again. That's a fair assessment, but I think it goes a bit further.
