I was going to bump up the existing thread in light of the game's release this week. I'll probably pick it up by the weekend.
Not sure if the games still remain censored, but this is what NeoGAF has been saying about customizable controls:
"You can't directly set actions to X and Y, but you can choose to have X and Y mirror A and B. Which is kind of the same thing, just not as intuitive. The proper control scheme of Y to attack, X to jump is possible, though. However, you can't map all four actions (attack, jump, dash, toggle weapons) to the face buttons at the same time, so two actions have to be set to L and R."
And yes, Easy Mode most definitely made it in. Says Game Informer's review:
"If you were turned off by the unforgiving nature of Mega Man 9 or 10, Mega Man Zero has you covered with easy mode. Unlike Mega Man 10’s newbie-friendly mode, which idiot-proofs spike pits and reduces enemy numbers, this easy mode decks Zero out in all his end-game gear. Maxed-out sub-tanks, life bar, weapons, and abilities are granted to those who prefer to feel like a badass robot right away, rather than earning it throughout the game. This mode robs much of the game’s reward factor, but it makes playing all four games back to back a much smoother process."
