They will (obviously) do it. I haven't seen any swimming sprites in 8bit yet tho. o.o
It says on one of the pages that there's no swimming; instead, we'll have the return of the Rush Marine.
You know, I like these downgrades and all, but for both this and 7, this kind of attitude is just plain stupid. It's like MM9 all over again, retro for retro and isn't allowed to surpass Rockman6 in terms of gameplay features.
Perhaps, but look at it this way: Rush Cycle was fun, but didn't really do anything new or revolutionary, basically the game's playable without it; Rush Health is useless now that they're putting E-tanks back in (Which is a change for the better IMO); Rush Bomber is just a less effective Astro Crush; and Rush Charger is pretty much a summonable Eddie, and if they're putting him back in, then that's redundant too.
Nice sprites there, speedremix!
