The mighty robot King has taken over Dr. Wily's base, invaded the Robot Museum, and stolen 100 CDs containing secret robot plans, hoping to create the ultimate unstoppable army of robots! And to make matters worse, he's sent 8 robot masters to prove his new-found power!

Mega Man is the only one who can stop him...or so he thought! Bass, Dr. Wily's greatest creation and Mega Man's sworn rival, is actually fighting ALONGSIDE Mega Man for once! Of course, it's only to prove that he's the strongest robot ever made, and he'll do it by smashing King's army of mechanical maniacs!

Now, Mega Man and Bass are heading out to get back all of the CD's that King stole. Run, jump, slide, dash, and blast your way through to destroy this new menace!

Despite what Capcom's press releases state, Bass is not (and never will be) Mega Man's partner. The main reason why Bass is a playable character is because he wants to prove to Dr. Wily that he's the strongest robot ever, and he'll destroy anything, even Wily's own Robot Masters, to prove it.


¶ This was the last game in cartridge format released for the Super Famicom in Japan.¶

Platform differences

The GBA version has Bass' dash accessible by double tapping left or right, while on the SNES it was activated with the A button.
