Bionic Commando Rearmed was an old game remade with new technology.
Mega Man 9 is a new game built with old technology.
Most people probably prefer the former approach: an old game, re-imagined with new technology. However, in the case of Mega Man, they are doing the opposite. Many fans didn’t like the direction that the series took when they tried to add newer technology to it, so they are reverting to strictly old tech.
I know plenty of fans who are excited to get another classic-style Mega Man. Anyone here in that crowd? Personally, I loved Mega Man back in the day, but I have no desire to return to the technology of NES days.
