Mega Man 9... Not Bridging Gap to X Series?

Apparently over at Protodude's Rockman Corner, word is that a fellow by the name of "The Shadow" has blessed them with some juicy Mega Man 9 information. Info includes what the story is like, how the game looks, who you play as, and more. Check out his blog post here. Do you believe this? Is it just hype and/or guesses? What's you're call?

EDIT: A new update on Protodude's blog claims to have a bit more info on what the story seems to be. Believe it or not?
