I woke up this morning with news from Capcom
that Proto Man will be joining the Blue Bomber this week in the form of Downloadable Content. The red, shield wielding robot has quite a few tricks up his sleeve as well. With the ability charge his shot, slide, and even deflect bullets with his shield, Proto Man is looking like a pretty sweet option. He does, however, have his disadvantages. If hit, he takes double the damage and has double bounce back. Come on, you didn't think Capcom would make it that easy, would you?
Also included in the DC is a new mode, Endless Attack. In it, you must use all your skills to stay alive as long as possible in a single stage. Records can be seen in the Rankings page. The content is scheduled to hit the PSN this Thursday, October 9th so keep your eye out for it. It is also to appear on the Wii today and XBLA on the 7th. Looks like it's going to be good week for Mega Man fans.
