RUMOR ALERT: Here's some detailed info that someone posted last month about the game before it was revealed. However, it is not confirmed to be authentic, despite having a number of things being spot on. Take this as you will:
It will be WiiWare and keep the 8-bit style. 360 and PS3 seems likely, but I was only outright told WiiWare. It will have no relation to Mega Man X (just pointing this out, since some people might think they might choose to do that with X equating to 10.) Both Mega Man and Proto Man are playable (it appears Proto Man will be unlockable, or become available at some point midway through the game.) There will be DLC to play as Bass. His gameplay will be based on how he played in Mega Man & Bass.
The ’story’ is basically as such: Robots get a virus that makes them sick. Roll catches it, Mega Man has to get Wily’s help to find a cure (Wily claims he has nothing to do with it, but… yeah), and the 8 bosses each hold part of the cure.
And here is the biggy… it will be two players. No idea if story mode will be two people, or if there will be some specialized two player mode though.
And oh yes… it’s far enough along that it is already being translated into English.
- Mega Man is looking for a vaccine-making device to fight the 'Robotenza', which causes robots to overheat and go crazy - play as Proto Man right from the start - third playable character yet to be revealed - computer-themed stage with mouse pointer enemies that draw boxes to throw at you, color-changing disappearing blocks, power treadmills and more - lava level, vertically oriented, lava pools, block shaped enemies that can duplicate themselves, conveyor belts that push you down - Sheep Man: turns into 4 clouds that hover above and attack with lightning, earn Thunder Wool for lightning attacks - features an easy mode

It's total rumor, Boo. I wouldn't take it as truth yet, as there's a major conflict between the "leaked" info I posted first and what NP states in regards to Protoman's playability (leaker says he'll be unlockable or playable midway, while NP says he's available from the start). We'll just have to see.
Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.
