Mega Man 10 release date announced

Rebound Striker psd jpgcopy e1265939678259 Mega Man 10 release date announcedCapcom has announced that Mega Man 10 will be blasting its way onto the PSN in March. All of Mega Man’s special weapons have also been revealed.

Mega Man 10 releases on March 11th and it’s priced at $9.99. This is an unsurprising move seeing as the previous game was the same price.

Capcom has unleashed almost all the information you need to know about the game.

First, there is the easy mode. This mode is designed for all the babies that cried about Mega Man 9 being too difficult. You will have more lives, more checkpoints, and less enemy projectiles to worry about. The level structures will also be changed so that it’s easier to plow through each stage.

Next up are the new and improved Mega Man Challenges. These challenges have certain tasks to accomplish with the intention of helping the player master the game. For instance, some of the goals will urge you to avoid taking any damage. Obviously that is easier said than done, and expect to be replaying these challenges many times after numerous deaths.

And finally, all of the Special Weapons have been revealed:

Commando Bomb

After launching the Commando Bomb, press up or down on the + Control Pad to make it turn at a 90 degree angle. The blast spreads horizontally (or vertically) and follows the contours of the landscape. This can be used to break through certain walls to get hidden items!

Wheel Cutter

Press the Attack Button once to attach the Wheel Cutter to your arm, and press the Attack Button again to launch it (it follows the contours of the landscape). You can launch it 3 times and it’s effective to attack enemies at a distance. You can attach the Wheel Cutter to your arm and dart at enemies!

Triple Blade

You can fire tri-directional blades and attack multiple enemies at one time. There are two patterns: surface-to-air on the ground, and air-to-surface in mid-jump.

Thunder Wool

You can launch a thunder cloud that slowly rises and a lighting bolt shoots straight down from the cloud.

Solar Blaze

Splits apart and launches firebombs (left and right) after a set period of time. Effective when you are pinned between two enemies.

Chill Spike

Launch a freezing liquid which flies in a parabolic trajectory. An enemy hit by the freezing liquid will freeze and become unable to move.

Rebound Striker

You can throw a rubber super ball straight and diagonally up or down. As it gets faster and stronger with each successive bound, you can build up power and hit the target to inflict maximum damage!

Water Shield

A rotating shield of water surrounds Mega Man. Pressing the Attack Button once more deactivates the water shield and hurls high-speed drops of water that spiral outward

Take a look at the screenshots below to see what each weapon is like. Which is your favorite?

With the release of the new Resident Evil 5 DLC, Mega Man 10, Super Street Fighter IV, Lost Planet 2, and Dead Rising 2, it’s definitely a great time to be a fan of Capcom right now.
