Introducing what is sure to be the best Mega Man boss ever: Sheep Man!

The January 2010 issue of Nintendo Power includes quite the world exclusive: Mega Man 10 is being prepped for WiiWare (as well as other download services, I'd imagine).

Even better than that little tidbit: One of the bosses in the game is named Sheep Man!

He certainly looks like a sheep, doesn't he? I'm not sure he fights like one, though. (Of course, I'm not exactly sure how a robotic sheep should fight.) According to the article, Sheep Man turns himself into  four clouds that hover over our intrepid hero (I've always wanted to use that phrase in an article) and attack him from above.

The player's prize for sending Sheep Man back to his pen where he belongs? The oh-so-awesome-sounding "Thunder Wool" weapon which, according to Nintendo Power, "floats up at an angle before releasing an electrical burst."

Many more morsels of information can be found in the first two pages of the feature, which can be found here.

Sweet. I can comment again.

This is ridiculous. Absolutely asinine. But you know what? I'll playi t and I'll love it. And I'll feel SO foolish being beaten over and over by such a ridiculous sounding boss.

What kind of stage might he have? That's what I'm more interested in.

I'm so excited for this game I could pee.

BTW: Thanks. I meant to say that in the last comment. Thank you for the redesign.

I agree with you completely re: Sheep Man's stage. I sure hope the developers let their imaginations go wild with that one :)

Oh, and you're most welcome about the redesign. Maybe it will prompt other people to post comments as well? Regardless, I'm glad *you* can post again! :)
