NES games always hold a place in my heart and the Mega Man series is a great set of games which feature increasing difficult levels and addictive gameplay. Between 1987 and 1993, the first six Mega Man games were released on the NES with two more sequels following in the next couple of years on other consoles. Then the series seemed to fade away into video game heaven.
A few months ago Capcom shocked their fans and announced Mega Man 9. It’s designed to emulate the style of Mega Man 2, going back to the roots of the original Mega Man games during the NES days. It will be released as a downloadable game for the Nintendo Wii and the PlayStation 3 and should be released later this month.
