This is a conversion of the two Rock Man (Mega Man) arcade games: Rock Man the Power Battle, and Rock Man the Power Fighters which explains the “Battle and Fighters” in the title there. These were both “boss rush” games which pit the player against robot masters from the first seven classic games without any platforming or levels to break up the pace. It was one of the few Mega Man games to be released exclusively in Japan. It has new features over the arcade games, with the most notable being a database with 36 robot master entries in addition to the 7 main characters. However, there is no longer any multiplayer beyond the database transfer.
Basically all you’re going to get here is the Options menu and the names of the Robot Masters. Fortunately this doesn’t affect the Power Battle much, but Power Fighters has quite a bit of storyline in it, so you won’t really know what’s going on. Still, all you do is shoot people, it’s not rocket science or anything.
