A Mega Man
version of Nintendo
's Mario Party
series, essentially. In 1993 Capcom
for the NES
. Players could choose to play as Mega Man
, Dr. Wily
, Dr. Cossack
, and other characters from the Mega Man
universe. However, instead of a side-scrolling action game, players participated in a board game by completing mini games and other minor tasks in exchange for points.
The game was never released in America due to a Nintendo of America policy of the day prohibiting certain types of gambling in games, something that Rockboard had in spades.
This game is extremely rare, seeing as how it had a limited production run and was only released in one country.
