Mega Man 3 Improvement

Hack of Mega Man 3

Description:

This is an improvement patch for Mega Man III/Rockman 3. It has many improvements to the game + MANY bugfixes that existed originally in MM3.

Anyone is free to use this for their own Mega/Rock 3 hacks, and any new ones in the future.

Please only use the appropriate patch depending on what ROM your using. The megaman3 patch is only for the English version and the rockman3 is only for the Japanese ROM.

The author will not list all the changes here, they are already listed in the readme. A youtube video was uploaded also to demonstrate many of the changes. Please see the “Video Comments.txt” for the link to the youtube video and to use as a guide to note the changes you’ll see demonstrated.

An ASM file was used from the Japanese ROM hacker named Puresabe, known best for Rockman 4 MI (Minus Infinity). It implements some gameplay physics mods that he presented to me. NOTE: It already has been applied to both English and Japanese versions of the patch.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Reviewed By: Duke2go on 27 Jun 2015

I must absolutely agree with the evaluations that have been given of this project. I absolutely LOVED this game!! What Kuja Killer has done here has completely breathed new life into a game that many considered (including myself) to be one of the pinnacles of the NES series. The changes that he’s made go beyond simply the aesthetics of the game. The entire pacing of the levels have been changed, for the better, although none of the level design has been altered. It was like playing Megaman III NES for the first time all over again. Definitely worth the download and definitely has replay value!!!
