Mega Man 10 DLC announced; Meet the Mega Man Killers
Bass isn’t the only DLC coming to Mega Man 10 this year. Announced over at the Capcom Unity Blog, three Time Attack stages will be coming to the PSN title in April.
Each stage will require Mega Man to run through the special stage as quickly as possible and defeat the robot master located at the end who has been aptly deemed as one of the Mega Man Killers. Just exactly who are these Killers?
Any Mega Man fan will immediately recognize Enker, Punk, and Ballade from the classic game boy series. Just like most of the other characters in the series, their names have musical connotations (Enker is a play on enka fyi).
For Special Stage 1, we have Enker, the first of the Mega Man killers. He was created by Dr. Wily and has completely devoted himself to Mega Man’s destruction. Some of you might remember him from Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge where he appears after the second set of Robot Masters. Mirroring his pokey appendages, there’s a variety of spiky hazards Mega Man will have to avoid in this particular stage. The drill robot for instance will launch a threat from underground, so watch out!
Special Stage 2’s boss is second Mega Man Killer Punk, also created by Dr. Wily. He was designed to be bigger than Enker in size and his special attack is a rapid spinning tackle. Now folks are going to be tempted to rush through on these stages because they are timed, but be careful because the Parabombs in this stage will make life hell for you.
And finally for the Special Stage 3 we have Ballade, the third Mega Man Killer created after Enker and Punk. This robot is enormously proud of himself and he will not give up easily, even he’s close to death! Make sure to watch out for the fierce attacks he unleashes from high jumps. His stage requires smart decision-making because a series of conveyer belts and diverse traps will challenge the most masterful Mega Man pro.
Stage 1 is set for release during the week of April 5th with Stage 2 and 3 following closely behind during the week of April 26th. Each will be available for the low price of $1.00. There’s not much you can get for that price these days and more Mega Man action definitely appears to be worth it.
