Megaman 9 with 8-bit graphics

on: June 26, 2008, 08:10:11 pm
These are breaking news...

I have posted here becuase of the last Mockup Frenzy.

From the screenshots in MegaMan Network, it seems that they are reusing even the tilesets from old titles, and not drawing new ones with the NES restrictions.

The only restriction that should be broken is the max sprites per scanline. (No more flickering).

What do you guys think of this?

What's this? Capcom neglecting one of their old franchises? I don't believe it.

I think it would be a really swell idea if it wasn't half-assed. Right now it's pretty obviously a cheap attempt to cash in on 'retro, lol'.

I really like the idea actually, as long as it isn't priced much higher than the NES games on the virtual console ($4-5). It's like releasing one of the Megaman games on the VC, but it's new. The NES Megaman games were the best ones anyway.

...or maybe I'm just exceedingly bitter with games nowadays and I find it impossible to look forward to anything.

Because that is a very real possibility.

That is an excellent idea! I bet the people who made that MM7 in nes will be all over this once it's out.

Anyone else get the feel that the developers just think 8bit=crappy graphics though? the tiling in the screens seems quite uncreative, like the graphic quality went back all the way to what it was like in Megaman1....I think I even spot some recolors from old levels like Woodmans's

EDIT: Megaman fans...PREPARE TO LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF!

Remember those B&W Anime Gifs that used to be about chickens shitting explosive eggs? it seems now they are AMVs with original graphics and audio....and these feature the geekiest Megaman mishaps you could possibly imagine =O
