Mega Man 9 set for domestic release on Xbox 360 and PS3

Wii owners will have to share the fun in June.

 

Capcom announced today a domestic release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Rockman 9: Yabou no Fukkatsu. Both versions will arrive some time in June, with the PlayStation Network version costing 1,000 yen and the Xbox Live Arcade version going for 800 MS Points.

Known simply as Mega Man 9 overseas, this latest adventure featuring the famous Capcom hero represents a return to basics for the franchise, with retro 8-bit graphics, sound and gameplay. Despite the look, the game is completely original, even featuring bosses designed by series producer Keiji Inafune.

Overseas, the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions were released simultaneously last year. The Japanese release for the game was limited to just the Wii until now.
