Mega Man Zero is coming to the Japanese Virtual Console next week

Keiji Inafune was vital to the creation of the Mega Man series and its continued success, but he didn't actually create the character of Mega Man single-handedly (the original design was Akira Kitamur...

Watch me beat the third and final Mighty No. 9 beta level, out today photo
Watch me beat the third and final Mighty No. 9 beta level, out today
by Chris Carter

The Mighty No. 9 beta has updated with its third and "final" stage, the Power Plant. This morning I decided to give it a go, and here are the results of my second playthrough of it. As usual this is a zero death run, quick and simple through the level.

I would say that this is the easiest stage on offer, and although it has a few cool concepts, some of them are half measures. Comcept will definitely have to step it up if they want to make Mighty No. 9 as memorable as some other recent platformers, but so far it's not bad at all.

If you missed the first and second levels you can check out my other videos linked herein.

Okay, this Mega Man armor for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is cute

Man, Capcom is killing it with these Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crossovers. And by "it," I of course mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He never stood a chance. This Palico armor styled after Mega Man is super cute but, admittedly, it'...

This new Mega Man X figure is looking pretty rad

What started as a potential April Fools joke ended up becoming a real thing. One of the minds behind Maverick Hunter and Mega Man: Powered Up has crafted a new take on the Mega Man X character, and I really dig it. ...

There's another Mega Man hoodie out there that's a bit more affordable

Earlier this year Capcom debuted a pretty detailed Mega Man hoodie. The only problem? It was $200. Yep, that's a lot of damn money for a hoodie. Thankfully there's another one out there in the wild that granted, looks a bit l...

Here's a full playthrough of the second Mighty No. 9 beta stage photo
Here's a full playthrough of the second Mighty No. 9 beta stage
by Chris Carter

The second Mighty No. 9 beta stage focuses on the female No. 2 boss, who is a master of ice and water. In addition to my playthrough of the first stage here, you can also get a better look at the next phase of the beta above in my second playthrough.

I actually liked this level a bit more. While the first stage (No. 5) was a standard romp throughout, I like how No. 2's level mixed things up with a water section as well as an ice portion, and seeing the fire-based No. 1 in the background was a little more interesting than No. 2's appearance in the original beta stage.

My main concern at this point is the art direction, which can look a bit drab in terms of the level design (the two are very similar) and the enemy models themselves, despite the fact that they have great base mechanics. Since this is a beta the full version will no doubt have a bit more flair, but how much flair is yet to be seen.

Mega Man 7 is out now on the Wii U Virtual Console

One of the most polarizing Mega Man titles is out now on the Wii U Virtual Console -- Mega Man 7. Not only did it employ a wholly different graphical style, but it also took some pretty neat risks, like the game's ending and the hidden Street Fighter-esque multiplayer mode. Whatever side of the fence you're on, it's nice to have the game finally available to pick up digitally.

Mega Man will be appearing at the Hanayashiki theme park in Japan
