Mega Man 3 Remade by RushJet1

This remix album takes the music of Mega Man 3 and reimagines it as it would sound on an NES cart equipped with the VRC6 chip – the extra chip in Castlevania 3.

It sounds noticeably different! And awesome! I am now dreaming of a trend of just-barely-more-advanced remakes of all my favorite games.

Video Power clip, featuring Mega Man 3. I used to watch this show every morning with my mom while we ate breakfast.

I used to fantasize about that final segment, just running through a store grabbing all the games I can and Velcro-ing them to my chest, and then possibly getting a free Neo Geo on top of that.

Now the nostalgia element — seeing what the show’s gauntlet is stocked with — adds even more to the show! As does that zooming shot into a completely disinterested kid’s half-hearted countdown.

In the year 19XX, a hybrid Glo-Worm/Mega Man will stand too close to Johnny Arcade. This clip from Video Power shows Arcade getting an early look at Mega Man 3 (not Game Boy Mega Man) at the Consumer Electronics Show. While Capcom can safely keep their costume shelved, I’d love to see their CES booth used again at trade shows.

American Mega Man 3 commercial. The video also features several more vintage commercials, as well as the last bit of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ending credits and the Tiny Toon Adventures opening sequence.

I don’t remember ever seeing this Mega Man 3 ad, whose deep, involved storyline I won’t spoil in this text. Compare that ad to this Japanese commercial for the same game, featuring original animation and an arranged version of the Snake Man music!

How long before a retail game’s soundtrack is composed using Hatsune Miku?
