Yesterday marked the release of Mega Man 10 for WiiWare; there are scheduled releases for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade to follow a little later in the month. Like Mega Man 9, this tenth installment of the franchise features throwback 8-bit graphics and, if it’s anything like its downloadable predecessor, it’ll be hard as hell, too. I had a blast with Mega Man 9, so I’m not going to hesitate to fork over the cash Microsoft points for this latest edition.
Mega Man retains his classic design, but the buzz – as always – is about the new evil robots. Blade Man? Solar Man? Sheep Man??? They look and sound pretty strange, but Gutsman worked, so whatever.
Speaking of looking pretty strange, in honor of the new Mega Man game, I created a gallery of Mega Man cosplay featuring not only Mega Man himself, but some of the other characters and Robot Masters from the franchise. Enjoy.
I have a feeling Air Man may have some trouble breathing:
Shouldn’t they be shooting Dr. Wily?
Mega Man X
Mega Man on the Rush Jet:
Cut Man could have done a bit more with his costume, no?
Metal Man by, if you couldn’t tell, RedNinja44:
The man and his creator:
Zero and X:
Another great group shot:
