Mega Man 9 DLC is live on WiiWare, other networks incoming

If you’re one of those who find the Mega Man 9 DLC evil and harsh, then it’s time to shake a fist in the air and scream “BISOOOOON!” As of right now, you can officially purchase Endless Attack and the Protoman character for Mega Man 9 via WiiWare and the PlayStation Network,

We’re proud to announce that the first of the Downloadable Content packs for Mega Man 9 will be available this week. Here’s the run down on what’s coming out.
 
Endless Attack – Test your skills on a stage without end. Try to break the record for getting the farthest. Results will be displayed in the Rankings page. Not compatible with other Challenges.
 
Proto Man Mode – Play the game as Proto Man. Some of Proto Man’s abilities may differ from Mega Man’s. Proto Man has the Charge Shot ability, Power Slide ability, and a shield that he can utilize to deflect bullets at enemies. However, Proto Man also takes double damage and has double bounce back when he is hit.
 
There is no story for Proto Man and he is not compatible with Rankings or Challenges.
 
Both DLC packs are available now on WiiWare Channel today (October 6 th, 2008) with XBLA following on October 7 th, and PSN releasing October 9 th.
How many of you are plonking down the cash for this stuff? They seem like neat little additions for the die-hards, but it’s not something I’d personally cream one up over. If you’re a Mega Man nutter though, boot up your Wii and get downloading. It’s a step up from Horse Armor, at any rate.
