The long-awaited, retro-stylish Mega Man 9 hits the Wii today, and to celebrate, the Blue Bomber gets his very own guest strip in Brawl in the Family. As an old-school gamer, I can’t help but get excited about this title that can be beaten in an hour, is ridiculously difficult, and yes, includes a female Robot Master for the first time in series’ history.

Hopefully you guys don’t find this strip too sexist, but diamonds ARE a girl’s best friend. So Mega Man gets a little more than he bargained for, but if Splash Woman actually DOES turn out to be weak to Jewel Man’s Jewel Satellite, this comic will instantly become 70% less funny, since Capcom beat me to the punch (line).

You may also be wondering about a certain Kirby game releasing this week. Don’t worry, our spherical friend will get a mention of his own next time around.
