Mega Man 9 Achievements Revealed

Mega Man Considering the multiplatform nature of the upcoming Mega Man 9, deciding which version of the game to buy can be somewhat vexing.  Should you go with the Nintendo Wii version so you can play with the classic Nintendo Entertainment System controls?  What about the Microsoft Xbox 360 version and its various Achievements? Then there's the Sony Pla— hey, wait a minute: Achievements!  Kombo has the list of Achievements that Xbox 360 players will struggle to earn.

  • Jitterbug: Clear the game in 60 minutes or less (20 points)
  • Invincible: Clear the game without dying (30 points)
