This footage is from the PS3/Xbox 360 version of the game, but the gameplay should give you an overall indication of what to expect for the Wii release.

“Flock! isn’t a codename… that’s the name of the game. Beyond that, you’re going to have to wait and see next week what it is.” – Christian Svensson, Capcom’s Sr. Director of Strategic Planning & Research
Flock! was just mentioned in Capcom’s official E3 lineup. Unfortunately, we still don’t know any main details about the game including the platform for release. We will, however, know much more next week.

WiiWare isn’t exactly know for downloadable content, however, Mega Man 9 looks to be changing that. We already know a good amount about the game (and we’ll probably know more after E3 blows by), though at this point, we know Mega Man 9 will have DLC. Famitsu revealed this information, but further details as to what exactly will be up for download and how often new content will be available were not provided.
Small update: The latest word (which is confirmed) on Mega Man 9 is that the title will cost 1000 Wii points. This is for Japan, but I would expect the price to be nearly if not exactly the same for America.
