Dr. Wily resurrects one of his old inventions from his university days and uses it to steal the latest set of Robot Masters (after blasting his way into Dr. Light’s lab to deliver his “message”). As usual, he bypasses Mega Man entirely (despite the blue bomber being present in the room), which of course will be his undoing. Naturally, to counter this new threat, Dr. Light installs the same invention in Mega Man, who in turn goes out to take the fight to the enemy.
After a long hiatus (it hasn’t been too long...only eight years...), Mega Man is back with a main series game and an entirely new look. Ditching the “nostalgic” routine of the previous two games, Capcom’s developers decided to go old-school with a significant update in style.
The graphics are noticeably different, but this still plays like a Mega Man game. For those of you who are new to the series and are picking this up as your first game, be sure to read through the Strategies page which is still relevant even after 31 years.
More coming soon!
