The Mega Man series may have branched out onto more powerful hardware in recent times but most hardcore fans consider the 8-bit entries to be the zenith of the franchise. Capcom's action platformer found fame on the NES and titles like Mega Man 2 stand out as true, must-have classics in the console's library.

However, later NES instalments like Mega Man 5 and Mega Man 6 are less well known, as they were released very late in the lifespan of the machine - at a time when many dedicated Nintendo fans had upgraded to the SNES and were sampling the delights of Mega Man X.

Our friends over at iRetrogamer have put together a video discussing the later NES Mega Man titles, and it's well worth a watch if you're a fan of the series, or if you haven't experienced these sequels before.
