Thanks to GameSpot for their large feature charting a comprehensive history of Capcom's Mega Man
. The article explains: "Mega Man recently celebrated his 15th anniversary, and the Blue Bomber is showing no signs of giving up the fight for everlasting peace"
, and goes on to document more than 30 Mega Man-related titles, from the original NES version
, which sported "totally appalling box art"
in the States, through the 3D stylings of the Mega Man Legends series
, and the VR-styled RPG gameplay of the Mega Man Battle Network series
. The mammoth article ends on the hopeful: "Here's hoping Capcom sees fit to grace a current or future system with a good, honest 2D - or 2.5D, at the very most - Mega Man IX."
