This game features the first "female" robot made exclusively by Dr. Wily, as far as one can get with female robots: Splash Woman. All of Wily's prior robots have been "male" robots, indicated by the surname of "Man". The only other female robot Dr. Wily worked on, per the series plotline, is perhaps Roll, who was created alongside Dr. Light.
This is the first game in the classic MegaMan series that is available by digital download.
This is the first game of the classic MegaMan series to feature DLC.
Originally, the classic MegaMan had eight entries: 6 on the NES, 1 on the SNES, and one on the Sega Saturn and PlayStation. Some ten years later, Capcom decided to continue this seemingly-dead series with the entry that is MegaMan 9. MegaMan 9's own graphic system was emulated from the classic NES MegaMan games as well, hence the 8-bit look to the game rather than the relatively-detailed one of MegaMan 8, for example, on the Saturn and PSX.
