Yes, the rumors are true: Bass is coming to Mega Man 10 as a brand new playable character!
Bass will be available on April 5th as DLC for the Wii (200 Wii Points), Xbox Live Arcade (160 MS points) and PlayStation Network ($1.99)!
All three consoles will receive Bass on the same day!
Dr. Wily designed Bass with Mega Man’s abilities in mind. Of course there’s a bitter rivalry between the two, although Bass will help Mega Man out if he sees a benefit for himself.
Bass uses a weapon called the Bass Buster, which is a lot like the Mega Buster except that it fires faster and can fire upwards and diagonally (7 directions in all). He can also use the Bass Buster to shoot-down enemy attacks! He uses dash to avoid enemy advances. He can also copy the weapons of the bosses in the game after defeating them, just like Mega Man can. When he combines with his robotic canine pal Treble, he can fly and shoot more powerful projectiles with his buster.
