Mega Man 9 Art – A Tribute to the Bad Old Days

Are they seriously considering this as the American promo art for Mega Man 9? (i.e. Rockman 9)

They must be nudge-nudge-wink-wink tributing the infamy of the original Mega Man American box art as some of the most disparaged video game art of all time:

Kudos for tip and linkage from jeblucas of ars technica.

    The bad old days, eh? Yeah, the box art was pretty odd for MM1 and MM2, and it wasn’t all that good for MM3 either, honestly…But then again, I didn’t really care, I just played the games, and they were pretty kick-ass! The first 3 or 4 games were awesome, and then at around 5 and 6 the stories got very redundant…I mean, come on…Mr. X?! Still, I own just about every game in the MM series…ever! And I truly can’t wait until 9/22 comes around. Making this game in 8-bit was a wonderful decision from those folks at Capcom for gamers like us who have been waiting patiently for a REAL MM9, not another Mega Man & Bass, Rockman Strategy, or side-story.

    Let’s just hope it lives up to the hype that’s been building over the past few months!
