Mega Man III (AKA Mega Man 3) is the sequel to the first Mega Man (NES). You continue to play Rock who must bust up Dr. Wily's third wave of evil robots. The game continues the standards of platformer Mega Man II (NES), but adds a new mobility device, your robot dog, Rush. Mega Man II is quite a bit harder than Mega Man II, so more patience is needed to beat the game.

The music job to Mega Man III was originally given to Harumi Fujita. However, she only finished 2 full songs before she gave birth, leading to her husband Yasuaki Fujita to step in and finish the job.

Credits

The bulk of the soundtrack was composed by Yasuaki Fujita who has confirmed his work. Though she wasn't credited, two of the stage songs Needleman Stage and Geminiman Stage were composed by Capcom veteran Harumi Fujita (no relation to Yasuaki Fujita). Also, a lot of sound effects are the work of Manami Matsumae, pulled forward from the first Mega Man game. Like most of Capcom's NES games, the sound driver was programmed by Yoshihiro Sakaguchi.
