Mega Man World 1-4 are remixed content from the NES games. It makes sense that if you did only 1, you'd do 5, which has all original content.

World 1-4 don't get their dues. While yes, they contain mostly recycled concepts, they're completely original takes. For example, Crystal Man's stage from Megaman 5 on NES and Cryatal Man's stage from Megaman IV GameBoy are drastically different. A lot of GameBoy games were literally the NES game with less screen resolution, but not so with the Megaman titles.

Indeed! I always thought that it would make for a good series of hacks for RMW 1-4 to just change the Robot Masters' graphics for entirely new ones using the various unused designs from complete works as inspiration.

The GB versions of 1-4 recycle graphics, music and bosses of the NES games. However, the level layouts seem to be almost entirely unique and original from what I can tell. Someone can correct me if i'm wrong about that.

And is it for this reason Dr. Light looks like Santa Claus? No, I'm joking :laugh:

Thank you all for your words ^_^
I can assure we are even more excited than you to have this released at last!

We are working hard, polishing the very final details.

I won't spoil anything but... the final battle is looking gorgeous now :o

We are afraid to be forced to delay Mega Man World 5 DX release for a couple of weeks :-(
Development has progressed smoothly lately, and we had plans to get it released next week. However, final polishes have been more problematic than expected.

So, we ask for your patience.
It's still coming on 2022! :-)
We just need a little bit of more time.

My dude, you owe us nothing. We're just thrilled you're doing this at all. If it takes a little longer than expected, so be it. I'll just be happy to play it when it finally arrives.

Agreed. I'm just excited that it's going to release at all! It's a monumental moment. :woot!:

Will there be a patch for the Japanese version as well?

Thank you for the hard work.

Honestly, just seeing your screen shots and video progress on this project has already brought me so much joy. I check this thread all the time just to look at it, but yeah, the game boy mega man games are just my favorites. The fact there are people out there like @marc_max able to make this colorization a reality is amazing. I've waited almost 20 years for colorized gameboy mega man (since they announced Mega Man Mania in 2003 for GBA and it never came), I can wait another few weeks, or hell, even 2 years or 20 more years!  Just so happy to see the work done on this already.  :woot!:  :woot!:  :woot!:
