I guess all it took was overwhelmingly positive reaction and impressive sales figures to prove to Capcom that there really is a market for 2-D retro gameplay.
Now make sure you all buy Mega Man 10 when it launches. We don't want Capcom suddenly assuming our affection for pixels is dead and giving the Blue Bomber a dark, futuristic makeover a la The Bomberman That Shall Not Be Named.
(Side note: If any of you know Morgan Freeman, I would pay extremely good money to hear him record a narration track over this trailer. I need to hear his dignified voice say "roboenza" with the sort of gravitas usually reserved for documentaries about the horrors of Sudanese violence.)
