Play Mega Man 9 with an NES controller!

Okay, so it may not be as simple as that sounds, but the option is definitely there!

Capcom confirmed that the WiiWare version of Mega Man 9 will have many different control options. Not only will turning the Wiimote on its side work, players will also be able to use the Classic Controller or anything that plugs into the Wii’s GameCube control ports. Basically, this means you will be able to use the Wii NES RetroPort, allowing the world to play Mega Man 9 the way that Jesus intended.

I was debating what console to download Mega Man 9 on, but the glorious amount of stellar D-pad options on the Wii are making my decision a lot easier.

What do you think? Would you purchase a Wii NES RetroPort just to play Mega Man 9 with an NES controller (I would!)? Since I am forcing everyone in the world to purchase this nostalgic game, which download service are you leaning towards: WiiWare, XBLA, or PSN?
