Protodude’s Rockman Corner, a Mega Man fansite, claims to have inside information on Mega Man 9 from Capcom. Here is what they give us:

• Mega Man 9 will feature a retro 8-bit art style, a homage to the earlier games.
• Two playable characters: Megaman and Protoman. Each has their own unique storylines.
• A popular belief is that Mega Man 9 will act as the ‘link’ to the events of the X Series. This is not so, The storyline DOES NOT lead into the X Series, rather it’s a ‘traditional’ plot.
• Many new characters, new Robot Masters and maybe some new supporting characters will be in the game.
• Gameplay is reminiscent of Mega Man 3-6.
• Online components such as leaderboards and some unknown form of online play will be present.
• Mega Man 9 will be on all major home consoles: Wii, X360 and PS3. X360 and PS3 users will be able to purchase the game from their respective download services. It’s unknown how the Wii version will work, whether it will be a downloaded game or not.

Whether or not any of this is true is still unknown. It is definate the game is happening though.
