Capcom to add sprite flickers and other bugs to Mega Man 9

Remember back in the day when you would play one of the original Mega Man games and you'd get those wonderful sprite flickers when too much was going on? Well it looks like we'll be seeing those same things in the retro Mega Man 9. Hit the jump for a quote from Capcom's Hironobu Takeshita on the subject.

Back in the NES days I loved to play Mega Man. However, much like Sonic the Hedgehog, as the games continued over the years, I started enjoying them less and less. It's been a few years since I've even touched a Mega Man game (aside from replaying the original last year), but I have to say that I'm excited about what Capcom is doing with Mega Man 9.

A little while back the good folks a Capcom found themselves in a tight spot. It seems that someone used a picture which was watermarked by IGN for the cover of Okami for the Wii. Talk about embarrassing. They decided to make up for it by offering up free replacement cover art, which is promised to be watermark-free. So the question now is where the heck those covers are.

Have any of you managed to figure out how many Mega Man titles there are? Apparently Capcom was having some issues figuring out the answer to that question themselves, and posed it to gamers earlier this month to find the answer. Well they seem to have gotten things sorted because they recently revealed the answer in a report listing various life-to-date sales figures of their gaming franchises.

Remember the other day when I showed you the botched box art for the Wii version of Okami? Well, Capcom has taken notice to the outraged public and decided to do something about it.

If you're appauled by the IGN watermark stamped on the case, Capcom wants to make you feel better. Just head on over to their website and give them your name and address, and you'll get your choice of three different box art covers (one is shown above). Sounds pretty painless to me.

I've always been a fan of Japanese artwork, especially their anime style. I can't really say why, but I enjoy the style more than even our Western comic book style. One thing that does tend to bother me is that they have a tendency to make some body parts disproportionate to the rest. Usually this means either big knockers or big heads. However, this has to be the first time I've seen the hands get so far out of whack.

If you've ever created a unique image that you wanted to be displayed on the internet, I'm sure you know what a watermark is for. While there are plenty of uses for watermarks, one important one is to make sure that no one else tries to take your work and claim it as their own. If they do try to claim ownership of the original artwork, they are made into complete fools by the presence of said watermark. That being said, Capcom has officially made fools out of themselves with the Wii port of Okami.
