About The Game

Mega Man 2 - The Power Fighters is an arcade video game.

Building upon the previous game, you must battle Dr. Wily's evil robot criminals with the help of Megaman, Protoman, Bass & Duo. Features cool 2-D graphics and the same tried & true Megaman controls. Pay attention to Dr. Light's advice and you may reach Dr. Wily's fortress and come out victorious!

Trivia

This game is known in Japan as "Rockman 2 - The Power Fighters".

The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'HKD'.

The music may seem familiar since the Japan-only Rockman Memories series uses the same music in some stages.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Rockman 2 - The Power Fighters : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VICL-2173) on 21/09/1996.

Updates

The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
