Capcom has announced that Mega Man 10 is coming to WiiWare, Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Store in March 2010.

Mega Man 10 will return gamers to classic 2D Mega Man gameplay, embracing retro platform action and NES-inspired old-school graphics.

The year is 20XX and a suspicious outbreak of Roboenza, a Robot Flu, has broken out. It spreads through the world like wildfire bringing down robots everywhere. Infected robots have rampaged out of control, destroying the city and holding it hostage. It's up to Mega Man to get to the bottom of this viral mystery.

Mega Man will take on malfunctioning infected robots and classic-style bosses, each with their own unique weapons and vulnerabilities.

New additions to Mega Man 10 include the option to play as fan-favourite character Proto Man from the start, as well as an all new "Easy Mode" which will allow more gamers to enjoy what is traditionally a hardcore series. Additionally, Mega Man Challenges mode will allow players to practice their skills ahead of the main adventure.
