Ever since Mega Man 9 came out, I always wanted to have the game as a legitimate NES ROM. This dream was further fueled by the MM9 press kit.
Rather than use NES technology, Mega Man 9 runs on a new, proprietary engine that simulates the behavior of 8-bit video games. The game even includes 'Legacy Mode', which emulates the low video processing power of the NES by partially rendering sprites, thus causing them to flicker when too many are on screen simultaneously. A while back I worked on a Mega Man 3 hack that recreates the Mega Man 9 levels. However, I stopped working on the project. One main reason being that the game actually uses more than 256 tiles in a level. Play Mega Man 2 emulator game online in the highest quality available.

(ロックマン9 野望の復活！！, Rokkuman 9 Yabou no Fukkatsu!!, which means, 'Rockman 9: The Ambition's Revival!!' ), is the ninth numbered installment in the classic Mega Man series. The game was developed by Capcom and Inti Creates, and was.I’m aware many people have attempted this same project over the years, but no one has followed through and finished. While I’m aware of several Mega Man and Rockman NES hacks that use MM9 and 10 assets, I’d rather create a custom engine that accurately recreates Mega Man’s physics and general engine as opposed to hacking an existing ROM.
I’m doing level design for this project. Currently we are looking for programmers and generally anyone who may be interested in lending a helping hand.

Frequently asked questions:
Q: Is this legal?
A: This is a fanmade labor of love that does not intend to infringe upon any distribution or sale of the original Mega Man 9. This recreation is intended to serve as a fun ‘what-if’ project.
Q. Is this a ROM hack?
Mega Man 9 Nes RomA: No. While hacking an existing game would be undoubtedly much easier, it would not allow for flexibility of mechanics such as Mega Man’s physics. Additionally, hacking a ROM would cheapen the feel of this project as less of brand new game and more of an extensive hack of MM4, for example.

A: This will be based off the Wii version. None of the DLC will be remade. The music however will be based off the PS3 version.
Q: What do you intend to do once this project is finished? Will you remake MM10?

Q: What other places have you advertised at?
A: The now-defunct Assemblergames, r/Megaman, r/gamedev
Mega Man 9 PlayQ: Will the game use a battery or password to save progress?
A: We’re not sure. While we are leaning towards inclusion of the shop mechanic from the original game, this would require a much larger password grid. (I.e. variables for bolt quantity in the player’s possession and items purchased) The game will most likely use battery saves for this reason.
