Capcom has confirmed the release date for yet another installment in the always-hardcore 2D platform series, Mega Man 10.
Set in 20XX, a suspicious outbreak of Roboenza - a Robot flu - has broken out, infecting robots all over the world, causing them to rampage out of control, taking cities hostage. Apparently.
As Mega Man or for the first time, you can play as Proto Man from the start, you'll need to get to the heart of the viral mystery and stop whoever is behind it.
This time however, Capcom has thoughtfully added an "Easy Mode" for less sadistic players and a set of "Mega Man Challenges" in which you're able to sharpen your jumpy, shooty skills before taking on the main game.
You'll also face inventive bosses in true Mega Man fashion, as mentioned in the Mega Man 10 press release:
"Each Robot Master has his own unique weapons and vulnerabilities. Of course the creator of the original Mega Man, Keiji Inafune, is in charge of directing and supervising the boss character designs and delivers the wildest villains the series has seen yet. Bosses like Sheep Man and Strike Man are sure to quickly become fan favourites!"
Sheep Man, eh? He sounds quite baaaad. Sorry.
Mega Man 10 will be available on the PSN from March 11th.
