Mega Man 9 DLC out this week

First of the new content available on Friday

Capcom will unleash new Mega Man 9 download content this week, adding a new playable character and game mode to the mix.


The first update, which goes live on Wii on Friday (or today if you're in US) for 200 Wii points, adds the option to play as Proto Man, who has a shield, can slide, and charge his Buster gun, but he gets battered back twice as far as Mega Man when hit.

On the same day a second 300-point pack adds the brilliant-sounding Endless Attack mode, in which you jump and shoot through an endless stage trying to get the furthest - with results tracked by an online leaderboard.

PSN and Xbox Live releases are expected this week, but are yet to be confirmed.
