Not News: Mega Man 9 secret nugget remains undiscovered

Shortly after Mega Man 9 was released nearly a year ago, Seth Killian of Capcom-Unity.com announced that he’d seen something in the game that we hadn’t. Ever since then, we’ve been searching, scrounging, and hacking the hell out of Mega Man 9 to try and find it, and so far, we’ve got nothing.

Well, maybe not nothing. There are plenty of Mega Man 9 secrets floating around the internet, many of which can be seen here on Seth’s blog. A lot of those nuggets are new to even me, and I’ve seriously played the crap out of Mega Man 9. Even after all that, Seth says we still haven’t found the secret, though he makes a point to tell us that we are “halfway towards discovering” it. What the hell, Seth? That’s like saying someone is “halfway towards being pregnant”.

The more vague Killian gets, the more I want to know what he’s talking about. For all we know, this “nugget” is cooler than the the Wood Man/Cut Man cameos in the Saturn version of Mega Man 8, or the secret hadouken arm in Mega Man X. The suspense is almost enough to make me want to give away my Mega Man 20th anniversary t-shirt signed by Keiji Inafune to whomever can find this secret first. Almost.
