Looks like we have ourselves a rather big rumor on our hands. According to Destructoid community member GohanGVO, future downloadable content for newly released WiiWare/XBLA/PSN game Mega Man 9 has been unearthed, priced and dated. If it's true, then you can expect to pay 100 Wii Points for the privilege of having an extra difficult mode. Not cool ... if true.

We are awaiting verification from Capcom on this, but what we can say is that we'd heard from our own sources a while ago that Capcom Japan was planning to charge for a harder difficulty after the release of MM9. Could Mr. Nickel be scheduling a date with Ms. Dime?
