We got a sneak peek at the bosses of Mega Man 9 yesterday, but knowing full well that black and white images weren’t going to be enough, Capcom has decided to divulge more information and artwork pertaining to the bosses and their obtainable weapons.
This first update is all about Concrete Man, Tornado Man, and Magma Man. Defeating Concrete Man will give you the Concrete Shot, which allows you to create temporary stepping stones.
Tornado Man’s Tornado Blow lets you blow light enemies entirely off-screen, while laying waste to Magma Man grants Mega Man the Magma Bazooka, an attack that spits out a row of fireballs.
Neat stuff, huh? Full descriptions of the bosses and the power-ups can be found after the break. Also, hit the gallery for some artwork and new screenshots.
Meet the Bosses and their Weapons!
Created to construct a dam, Concrete man can actually design a dam and supervise its entire construction. He has a stubborn personality and will tell off any lazy robots.
Weapon: Concrete Shot
Concrete shot creates a temporary foothold as soon as it touches the ground. It can also be used to stop enemies in their tracks.
Works for the Weather Manipulation Office to help control and stop the formation of large storms all over the world.
Weapon: Tornado Blow
Tornado Blow launches a huge tornado that covers the entire game area. Heavy enemies will take damage, but lighter ones will be blown entirely off-screen.
Magma Man serves as the safety control robot at a large geothermal power plant. He is able to work in incredibly hot environments and loves to visit hot spas.
