The Wacky Mega Man Mini-Game Collection Only In Japan

By Spencer . March 22, 2013 . 3:13am

imageMega Man foiled Dr. Wily’s plot and captured him again, but as usual Dr. Wily lives up to his name and has a trick up his sleeve. Dr. Wily jumps into a capsule that’s impervious to Mega Buster blasts – even charged ones. Why didn’t Dr. Wily think of this earlier?


Roll shows up to help Mega Man and Dr. Wily pulls her into the capsule. Oh no! The only way to rescue Roll is to shake the capsule and play tilt controlled mini-games.

Instinct! Mega Man is played entirely with tilt control. Players shake their phone to collect items on an icy level in Ice Man’s world and to move Mega Man in a first person shooting mode where you have to fight Mets and an evil Mega Man clone.

Hammer Joe and Gutsman show up as enemies in the first person Mega Man mini-game too. Capcom also created wacky games like a dance battle with Elecman and a game where you ski on a cake while lighting up candles as Fireman. There’s also a mini-game where you play as Roll and cut cabbage.

The final fight with Dr. Wily starts with a first person shooting game where Wily flies around the screen. Of course, Dr. Wily gets away again, but Mega Man can finally defeat Dr. Wily by making him dizzy. Dr. Wily’s eyes follows the cursor which moves if you tilt your cell phone.

    Roll’s adorable :)

    • CirnoLakes

      She is.

      I always wanted a game starring Roll as the hero.

    I find it a little disconcerting that it has always been, since the beginning, that Mega Man is on the battlefield. While look where they have put Roll… in the kitchen. And is generally described as Dr. Light’s housekeeper…

    In fact despite Mega Man being one of my favourite Capcom franchises, one that hasn’t been afraid to be “anime” or whatever, which is something I like. It can be a serious dude-fest.

    What I wouldn’t give for a game where Roll is the hero. Or maybe another Tron Bonne game.

    Though at this point, I would feel lucky to get anything Mega Man from Capcom ever again. Or anything remotely “anime” in the West.


    • Neophoton

      I gave up with waiting on them to take Roll seriously. She’s cute, but I presume she’ll forever just be a minor character.

      But then I felt Capcom was never one that great when it comes to writing. Too many hiccups in plenty of their games.

    • To be fair Roll has been playable in crossover fighting games and she is playable in Mega Man Powered Up.
      She does deserve more active role.

    • zferolie

      Roll is my favorite game character, and I would love to see her have a more active role(lul)

      Sure she is in some crossover games(she was amazing in TvC, and had the best theme), but one where she saves Megaman would be great. Sadly, Japan… doesn’t treat their female characters too well, most of the time making them side characters, damsels, or love interests. You have your exceptions of course, but as a whole that’s how it is in Japan.

      I would throw my money at the screen so hard if they had a full Roll game, or another Tron game, but the chances are slim.

      Side note, Roll is still so damn adorable!

    • Wtv

      To be fair, I don’t really care about Mega Man anymore. Still have some games to beat and don’t plan to play it anytime soon…

      A game with Roll as the main heroine would interest me though.

    • Anime10121

      Well to be fair, at least in Legends/Dash, she made weapons and was actually USEFUL to Megaman/Rock, in that she fixed submarines and airships, and wasnt afraid to get a little greasy ;P

    • Perhaps she does not fancy fighting like her brother does and fights only in self defense? But then again she seemed like she was competing with her bro on MvsC so who knows? If they ever make a Megaman game based on Roll with female robot masters that’d something new to look foward to but then again Capcom doesn’t seem like they unbury the Megaman family soon :C

    • almostautumn

      I always thought of Roll as the core protagonist for the MML games—.

      As for a hero, I dunno; maybe as a fan-fic, but seriously what would the game be? Either an absurd story where she’s just outfitted to be a combat robot anyway, or wear the same useless moves from tatsunoko.
      I’d dig a spin-off, no doubt; Megaman is definitely in need of some new variety, but again it’s not going to follow any sort-of canon or anything like that. As far as I see, the game would exist just under the MM name if that was the case, a cash cow— I’d rather Capcom just pursue a new IP

    • 古戸ヱリカ

      To be fair… I got nothing, actually. Everyone else was replying with “to be fair” and I didn’t want to be left out. +1 for a new Tron Bonne game, though. That would be amazing.

    • To be honest, while I have never cared much for Roll, you’re so right. At least we got Splash Woman, though.

      In fact, I actually recall one of my earliest memories with Mega Man X being when I felt kind of disappointed to learn that Zero was in fact a dude XD Man, since then I’ve always wanted a badass female robot in the X series.

      This is one of the many reasons I loved Mega Man X Command Missions. Marino <3

      I don’t know if Roll is gonna be a main character here (I haven’t seen enough proof), but this Japanese person by the name of Tarbo has taken it upon himself to make a game supposedly starring her. Only problem is all they’ve been posting on YT is videos of custom Challenge Modes (MM10) they’ve made, Roll being one of the playable characters. If you scroll down, you will see a video player. One of those videos SHOULD show footage of Roll being playable. Or you can find the user “megacocorock” on YT and look at the vids there. On the site, they like to censor some of the footage for some odd reason…

    • LaserVision

      This is a great idea. But considering it took 21 years and 88 bosses to finally get Splash Woman, I don’t have much hope. I still remember checking out the Nintendo Power contest for Mega Man 6 and quite a few fans did send in female bosses (I think Knight Man and Tomahwk Man won). That’s one of the reasons why MML3 ‘s cancellation was so crushing. That Roll was one of the best supporting characters in video games. And due to the story we might’ve been able to play as her… sigh.

    So basically, WilyWare: Mega Man Microgames.

  • Dr. Wily’s eyes follows the cursor which moves if you tilt your cell phone.

    Hope there’s times he also wiggles those eyebrows too.

  • Göran Isacson

    … I would want to play that dance game. Buuut that’s pretty much all in this compilation I’d be interested in.

  • Armane

    Regardless of Roll’s role, it looks way better than Xover. If it makes it’s way over here (and I buy a smart phone) I might even pick it up.

  • Looking at Roll on the right of the screen with a message bubble reminds me of—


  • I’d… probably actually play this, given the chance.

  • ShinStar

    This was posted awhile back on Rockman Corner, but I helped upload a YouTube mirror for the game that you can view here:

      Thank you very much! Now, I know the name thanks to you. I am sharing with you for some higher quality pics. Here:!_Rockman

      • ShinStar

        Wow nice! Were these screenshots from an emulator? I really want to play it. They should remake it for iOS and Android. I’d totally get it.

  • bearmon2010

    Do you have a better higher qualities for those photo ? They are blurs and low qualities. And where did you get that information ? I cannot find anywhere about it. Thanks.
