Hardware and ID at the end of the video. This might actually by my first no-continue complete run -a number of quirks make this version more difficult for me compared to the NES original.

I'll put this one on my 'to play' list.

 

A 'Yes' from me!

This was a Europe-only release, right?

@LarcenTyler:

Yeah, the only official cartridge release in the west was in Europe. In the US, it was exclusive to the Sega Channel service.

I can't believe they did that.

that does seem amazing!  MegaMan was huge in America

maybe Nintendo was able to work some kind of restriction here but not in Europe...

@S.BAZ:

Nah, because you have to remember this was past the NES-era when that restriction was in place, and also around the time that Capcom was also bringing Street Fighter II CE to the Genesis/MegaDrive. I suspect either Sega was active about courting exlusive titles to their cable service, or Capcom had a lack of confidence in the title to perform at retail that led to them making the deal. I don't think the story has ever really been told, so far as I know.
