Trivia

Bosses

Mega Man 8, besides the first Mega Man game and Mega Man & Bass, is about the only other game to feature Wily Robot designs from Capcom. Tengu Man and Astro Man were Capcom creations; everyone else was submitted via Robot Design contests.

Release history

Mega Man 8 almost wasn't released in the U.S., due to Sony saying it wasn't 3D enough. Capcom nearly had to fight them to get the game released in the U.S., but in the end Sony granted them the approval to release it.

Version differences

  • The opening and ending songs were altered from the Japanese version of the game. The opening song in the Japanese version was a song called Electric Communication from J-Pop group Ganasia, and the ending theme was another song from the band, called Brand New Way. In the U.S. and European versions they were replaced with instrumental songs.
  • Although they weren't in the PlayStation version of Mega Man 8, if you play the Saturn version of this game, you'll run into two old foes making cameo appearances, and even going to fight you again! Who are these two foes? None other than Cut Man (from Mega Man) and Wood Man (from Mega Man 2). Cut Man appears in the intermission stage after you beat the first four Wily Robots, and Wood Man appears as a mini-boss in Seach Man's stage.
  • The original release of this game came with an anthology booklet.
