“FIGHT, MEGAMAN! FOR EVERLASTING PEACE!”
Capcom’s Rockman – better known in the West as Mega Man – blasted his way onto the scene 30 years ago with a tough, tantalising Famicom/NES debut. ‘The Blue Bomber’ would go on to appear in well over 100 games across countless formats, yet perhaps his most fondly-regarded outing was his second, 1988’s Mega Man 2. OLD MAN Leon, DUTCH MAN Michiel and COOL MAN Sean each has their own take on the earliest games in the long-running series, as do many contributors from the Cane and Rinse community who weigh in with reviews of three words and more.
