A Quick Fix for Mega Man 5's MMLC Performance Issues (3DS)
If you've invested enough time in the 3DS version of Mega Man Legacy Collection, chances are you've noticed some technical hiccups. Mega Man 5 seems to be the worst offender of the lot with frequent frame skipping and slowdown. It can get pretty nasty.
Until a patch becomes available (if at all), there's an easy solution: play Rockman 5. Seriously; for one reason or another, Rockman 5 runs a lot smoother than Mega Man 5. To do this simply head to the Options menu and toggle the games from Mega Man to Rockman. Every game in MMLC is then swapped with its Japanese counterpart. This feature is entirely exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version.
I can't explain why this is technically possible. Title screens and languages aside, the two games are practically the same... but it works!
