The Story of Mega Man on DOS - The Gaming Historian

Love 'em or hate 'em, the DOS Mega Man games are very much an important, if not, obscure part of the franchise's storied history. And if you've been hankering to learn more about the Mega Man and Mega Man 3 on DOS, a brand-new video by The Gaming Historian has you covered.

"The Story of Mega Man on DOS" is a complete, 22-minute history lesson on DOS Mega Man and Mega Man 3. The video even includes a guest appearance the games' sole developer, Stephen Rozner. Speaking with the Gaming Historian through Zoom, Rozner drops a wealth of behind-the-scenes knowledge that - at least for me - greatly enhance my appreciation for the DOS games.

Sit back, grab some Halloween candy and give it a watch!

After the break, you'll find said preview pages, a few new cover variants and our opinion on this little debacle.
