Overview

Mega Man 5 (also known as Mega Man V, known in Japan as Rockman 5: The Trap of Blues?!, and not to be confused with the Game Boy game Mega Man V) is a side-scrolling action platformer developed and published by Capcom for the Nintendo Entertainment System on December 1992.

It is the fifth installment of the original Mega Man series (and the sequel to Mega Man 4). Along with an improved Mega Buster, protagonist Mega Man can now collect eight circuit chips to help assemble Beat, a robotic bird (created by both his creator Dr. Light and his new ally Dr. Cossack) that can automatically attack enemies around him.

Set in the year 20XX, the game takes place months after the events of the game's predecessor (in which the humanoid robot hero Mega Man defeats the evil Dr. Wily a fourth time). Proto Man, brother and ally to Mega Man, goes rogue and creates an army of robots to set out destructive attacks all over the world. When Proto Man kidnaps Dr. Light, Mega Man (now with upgrades by his new ally, Dr. Cossack) sets out to rescue him and deliver justice to Proto Man's army.

The original game was released as a Virtual Console title for the Wii (on June 16, 2011) and Nintendo 3DS (on May 16, 2013). An enhanced port, developed for the 1999 Japan-only PlayStation series Rockman Complete Works, retained the graphics and music from the original. However, this version includes an optional arranged soundtrack, the option to switch weapons without requiring the weapon sub-menu, an updated HUD, and a special "Navi Mode" that guides players in certain parts of the game. This version was later released in North America as part of the Mega Man Anniversary Collection compilation for the PlayStation 2 and GameCube on June 23, 2004 and the Xbox on March 15, 2005. The original PlayStation version was later released in Japan on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable (both via PlayStation Network) on August 10, 2011. (This was later expanded to the PlayStation Vita)
