Look, I drink...
... and from time to time, I do a little bit of Matlocking. I may not be the best source for rumors, especially considering that I have never ever been correct on anything. However, I am not the source. Spacecat is someone I met during my days as a unicorn wrangler. He travels through time to find gamers the juicy gaming rumors that you crave. Here is what he has to say...
I have just returned from the year 2009. Global warming is a lie, by the way. It's freezing cold there. Anyways, as you know, the core Mega Man series died off over 10 years ago with Mega Man 8, but fans will be happy to know it isn't dead completely. Mega Man 9 is fully in the works. It gets announced in 2008. The series will introduce new characters, provide online multiplayer, and will have leaderboards. The game will be hitting the Xbox 360 on Live and the PlayStation 3 on PSN. For those of you in Japan, don't worry. The series is coming to you also in the form of Rockman. Oh no! They see me. I have to go now.
Well now. Nobody can dispute a rumor from a talking cat that has the ability to travel through time. One thing I can add is that this "rumor" in no way is related to the God-awful Mega Man movie in the works. For all of you Matlocks out there, Mega Man X was not Mega Man 10. Look at the Wikipedia page (never lies) before you run your mouth.
[Workmeng's note: I did attempt to contact Capcom directly to verify Spacecat's claims, but did not get a proper response, so it remains a pointed rumor until then. From the future. In space. Meow.]
