In the year 200X, the notorious Dr. Wily, now reformed and working for
the forces of good, works hand in hand with Dr. Light to build a new
type of peacekeeping robot. When a new set of eight Robot Masters
escapes the lab to wreak havoc on the world at large, only Mega Man can
save the day! This time, Mega Man must rely on his new slide move and
his canine companion Rush to conquer the stages and vanquish evil. A new
character, Proto Man, adds to the mystery and appeal of this seminal
title in the famous action-game series.
