In the recent issue of Nintendo Power, in that interview where Capcom mentioned their plans to bring out all 6 NES MM games before the anniversary, they also teased interest in putting out this game along with those NES games... Anyone else interested in this unique MM game with RPG styled dialogue?

Though I haven't played much of it, I'm pretty sure MegaMan V for the Game Boy wasn't an RPG (the only "RPG" element I thought was the money system "P-Chips" introduced in MM4GB.)

Yeah, it's a great game, and I'm playing through each level no damage / buster only on my channel, but it's absolutely not RPG styled in any way! It has a store feature, but so do a few entries in the classic series...don't get your hopes up for anything like an RPG!

Great game though. One of my favorites.

If the 3ds ehop gets mega man 6 first that will be awful because the wii still needs megaman 6 to complete the nes series on the wii & capcom will most likely not support the wii u outside of monster hunter because they know those games are cursed to sell bad outside of japan.:P

Well it seems to have RPG interactions; there are text boxes everywhere.

It doesn't. Just a few cut scenes, non-interactable.

It's a classic series Mega Man game. Really, as nice as it might be to think this pushed the series forward in some way, it didn't, so don't get your hopes up for something it didn't try to do! It's your standard helping of robot-blasting and boss-fighting. It's a GOOD helping, but a standard one.

Well, I guess you are right. First post edited then.

To be honest I've heard of mega man several times both when I was younger & older but just never really fazed me mostly saw the games in different stores but like I said didn't think to much about mega man so never bothered with the series. I'm more curious to see when harvest moon GBC comes to 3DS VC.

What is mega man about?

Didn't it have a cartoon show on tv at one point as well?

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

@Barbiegurl777 In a nutshell, Megaman is a franchise that is composed of seven independent series that usually stars a hero in Blue who is armed with an arm cannon. Four of those series are 2d Run'n gun Platformers, two are RPG's and the remaining one is a 3D Action platformer. In order of Continuity, here are each of the Mega man series:
Official Universe
Mega man Classic Personal Favorite of the bunch
Mega man X
Mega man Zero
Mega man ZX
Mega man Legends

Alternate Universe
Mega man Battle Network
Megaman Star Force

And yes, Megaman Classic had a cartoon back in the early 90's by Ruby Spears and it was cheesy. There are also two anime series based on Battle Network and Star force afaik but I never did get to watch them. If you want to know more, feel free to ask in the Mega Man Fan Club thread.

As for Megaman V, I'm trying my best to track a physical copy of that and Megaman IV. Those two were the highlights of the gb series. I love how the fifth game went all out by replacing your buster with a power arm and added new Robot masters, erm Stardroids, into the roster instead of recycling old bosses.

I remember seeing Megaman V back in the day in pages of Nintendo Power but yet for some reason I never did get a chance to play it. One of the reason that I have wanted to play this one is because of how different it was compared to other Megaman games at the time. Hopefully this game will make it to the 3DS eShop.

Greetings my little ghoulish MegaZoids! B-)

So, I'm currently at the 7nth Robot master and so for so good! I don't think it's quite as good as most MM fans and reviews make it out to be, but it's definitely an improvement over Mega Man 5 & 6 on the NES....For me, the two main flaws would have to be the majority of the soundtrack which is somewhat forgettable and doesn't have the staying power or energetic flow as lets say mega man 2, 9, 1, 3(ect) and the unfortunate fate of every Gameboy game is that there's no color which makes practically every single stage look similar to one another, at least to me, most of them just don't stand out. Lifeless to say the least, which is why I often switch back to Green pea soup monochrome, rather than sticking with B&W regardless if the nostalgiac green & ghoulish effect drowns out detail.

So far, Saturn and Mercury have the catchiest tracks imo, but there are a few tracks that have similar Bleeps chirping in the background. It would of been awesome had this of gotten a game boy color release, ZELDA LA DX-style.

Also, I love the StarDroids and plot itself, it's a refreshing rather than the same old Dr.Wily up to his old pixel tricks again and again. Same could be said for the all new 'Tango' and Mega fist Shot. :*

But yeah....Once I'm finished with this, mega man 7 will be the final classic mega man for me.....And then I guess it's on to....the disappointing looking Mighty Number Lame. ;)

Yeah, I would easily pay more to have games like Mega Man V in color like on the Super Game Boy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3ihwgqdNhA

I would still play Mega Man IV if I were you. It's totally worth the time.

I've already beaten it a couple of month ago. Oddly enough, I preferred III. Even then I could of done without both, II was nowhere near as awful as most people make it out to be. Easily the worst of the portable bunch, but not BAD by any means. I DO however have a soft spot for Wily's Revenge as it was the first portable outing for little old mega. :*

V is still the cream of the crop though

Just finished up V.....
Yeah, I'd say it's middle ground in the 'entire' Classic Mega Man series.
It doesn't pack the technical punch stage design wise of lets say Mega Man 3(Spark man's devilishly tricky and carefully structured confined stage is the perfect example. I'm not mentioning 9 or 10 as they were released YEARS later on.) nor does it pack as much challenge as most of the others in the series, rather being more in line with of 5 & 6.....Maybe Slightly more difficult. Yet the majority of bosses were complete push overs...Except for the final Boss which was a pretty great fight IMO that had me screaming 'Fudge' at least 15 times. :D

Again, the black & white visuals suck the life out of 'what could of been'(ahem, GameBoy Color release!) and the soundtrack for the most part misses the mark....Saturn, Mercury and Wily's Castle's music were easily the best of the bunch at least I'd say. Now I've got 7 to tackle and wickedy witch wackle! Whenever that is, I'm going to savour this most glorious and special mega experience beacause it's going to be the last.

What makes it far more appealing than lets say V, is that it's the first classic Mega man to make the 16-bit jump which will no doubt be absolutely refreshing compared to being so used to 8-bit mega man which to be honest I'm groing tired of. The formula is wearing thin....As it was with V. :P

As for Mighty Number.9, I've practically lost all excitement for it. Everytime I look at it, I WISH it were a new mega man game. it looks lifeless, almost PS2-ish, barren, and far too mechanical for my liking. A tree or two would be nice. :P
