Our library of pre-release and prototype Mega Man games continues to grow with the addition of a Game Boy Mega Man III "SAMPLE" version.
On the surface, there's nothing too ground breaking here. It's more or less a final, localized build of MMIII with the only noticeable difference being the words "SAMPLE" on the title screen. I'd wager this was originally passed around out trade shows, demo kiosks, or for review. Still, it's a part of Mega Man history and should be preserved.
You can download it and lots of other Mega Man pre-release/prototype/demo versions from the Rockman Corner Dropbox here. Many thanks to Skaarg for the donation!
