At its best, Capcom's "X" fork of Mega Man puts a giant exclamation point at the end of the "action-platformer" genre. Basically, if you crave a brutally tough mix of high-speed jumps, pesky enemies, overcharged weapons, and incredible sprite artwork, this series' entries on SNES and PS1 are all you need. Sadly, that's not quite the case.
Sadly, even this near-finished collection failed to meet its planned release date and ended up getting scrapped altogether. Months prior, a silly stop-motion video teased another game in the franchise, one that played with the notion of playable appearances from other Capcom classic characters like Arthur and Ryu. Reasons were never given, but speculation points to either negative feedback of the game, bad management, poor progress from the development team, or the Touhoku earthquake and tsunami.

Mega Man, also known as Rockman in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom. The character was introduced in Since then, Mega Man has become Capcom's mascot, one of the company's primary original characters, and continues to be one of the video game industry's most recognizable icons. Having appeared on many consoles since the Nintendo Entertainment System, Mega Man has had a wide gaming audience, and his games continue to evolve with the ever-changing hardware demands of modern gaming systems.
Given the popularity of the series and the widespread prolification of PlayStation consoles, Capcom ported the six NES titles onto the Sony system in Japan as separate releases, each for the discounted price of yen. Where these ports excel is all the extras and additions packed onto the CDs. The first major update is the ability to save progress in addition to using passwords — a nice perk for the first game — though saved data mimicks the password system of old, so progress can only be saved up to the start of the fortresses.

We come here to pay our respects, to reminisce, and to wonder aloud what a passing mad doctor might be able do with all these corpses and some high-definition lightning. The 8-bit entries had become something taken for granted due to a perception of them being far too similar to one another and minimal evolution. The reality of the situation was a bit different, as Mega Man V and VI did change things up a bit, but perception became reality and it needed some freshening up.
