Almost two years ago Capcom’s Community Manager, Seth Killian, stated that even though “Mega Man 9″ had been out for a few months, there was still one secret that had yet to be found. This one comment has been driving Mega Man fans mad since he made it, and they’ve searched every level of the game from top to bottom and still have yet to find it. At a recent event, Joveth Gonzalez (otherwise known as jgonzo on Capcom-unity) another of Capcom’s Community Managers was surprisingly candid about the secret, as well as the one hidden in “Mega Man 10.”
While demoing the upcoming downloadable title “Mega Man Universe” Joveth confirmed that he knows what the “Mega Man 9″ secret that has spawned numerous threads all over the internet (including an 88 page discussion via the Ask Capcom forum) is, and that it is, in fact, still at large. He also coyly added “there’s a reason that people haven’t found it yet.” Apparently, Seth bestowing the knowledge upon him was part of his initiation as Community Manager, where he joined the ranks of, by his best guess, two other people who probably know what is still hidden.
Most of this is old news. However, when I asked if anything was hidden in “Mega Man 10″ a look of concern overtook Joveth’s face, and he attempted to brush off the question. However, it very quickly became apparent that whatever is still hidden in “Mega Man 9″ has a counterpart in “Mega Man 10.” In fact, as I pressed the issue, Joveth actually confirmed that there is something hidden in “MM10″ and that the two secrets are, in fact, related to one another.
Even though I attempted to dig deeper, Joveth very quickly made it clear that he could no longer speak on the topic, and went back to showing me the secrets of the Tokyo Game Show build of “Mega Man Universe.”
It looks like it’s time to take the Blue Bomber out for another spin to go secret hunting.
