Mega Man 9 – the awesome unboxing

Mega Man 9 is nearly upon us. Yesterday we revealed two new bosses from the game, Splash Woman and Plug Man, and today we’re slapping up some pics of the delightfully retro asset package.

Sound boring? Hm, then perhaps you should see for yourself:

Yes, it comes in an old box and NES cart, intentionally aged and gritted up to look like they just dug it up out of grandma’s attic.

It even has fake price tags!

Don’t blow in the carts, kids! It does nothing!

Inside the cart is the new asset disc, which we’ll be uploading the contents of shortly. Check the screenshot viewer!

And there’s the disc itself. Excellent idea, Capcom PR. Simply wonderful.

    Agreed! When I first saw it I thought that it would be for NES only!

    That is one of the coolest box arts and packaging ever!!!!

    I honest to god would seriously buy that on eBay (for a respectable price mind you)...that is so righteous...God this is what "Limited Edition" packages should be like...awesome Capcom!! Maybe they will do something along these lines for SF IV... (doubt it but I'll look out for it)

    Pure brilliance, retro's the way to go. Why fix something that isn't broken, right?

    How do you get one of these? I thought the game was going to be a download? Either way, need to have this !!!

    I don't think it's physically possible for this to be any cooler. Fake freakin' price tags!!

    OMG! I was already planning on downloading Megaman 9, but I would pay a little extra to buy it at retail if it came in a package like that!
