Capcom have just confirmed that Mega Man 9, the much hoped for official sequel to Mega Man 8 will be released on the Wii's Virtual Console, PS3's PSN Store and the 360's Xbox Live.

Mega Man 9 is set after the events of Mega Man 8, and multiple riots have sprung up all over the world. While many people suspect that this is another plot by Dr. Wily, Dr. Light is stunned to recognize that some of the robots rioting on the TV screen are his own creations. Even more stunning, Dr. Wily appears on television to proclaim that Dr. Light is the evil mastermind behind these latest catastrophic incidents and it's up to Mega Man to clear his creator's name. It's certainly an interesting scenario for the game, and we'll be seeing plenty of classic 8-bit gameplay here, no fancy updated graphics. According to Capcom, Mega Man 9 features 50 new enemies and bosses to battle, which bodes well for the game's length.

A new feature is an online leaderboard with a ranking system so that you can compare your high scores and times to those of other gamers, definitely a good move by Capcom. IGN have the first video of the game available to view, and it's looking good.
