Apparently CAPCOM have got it wrong too.

Earlier games use Megaman, later ones use Mega Man. I think anything after GBA now uses Mega Man. It must be some 'legal rights' thing. 'Mega Man' always seems suffixed with (R).

Or maybe thats later than PSP?

Title screen with (TM)?

I've checked, and actually all Mega Man games used "Mega Man" on the back of the boxes instead of "Megaman".

The first game of the series, for example:

Including the X series, which my suggestion to fix was rejected:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/snes/image/588481.html?box=47120

Later disc Mega Man X games also used "Mega Man" on the back of the box:

Battle Network here:

So either the back of the box counts or does not count. It's inconsistent to count it in some situations but not in others. If only going by the front of the box however, then "Mega Man" still appears correct on all NES and SNES entries according to the art. Regardless, if "Megaman" is deemed correct anyway for SNES, then it needs to be changed accordingly on the NES entries as well to keep consistent.

Ok, I will change all systems to "Mega Man" unless BigFred and/or NGEfreak have reasons against this.

SNES Megaman 7 should be VII according to the title screen. Please change it to "VII" not "7".

Same thing with Megaman's Soccer, the "'s" was taken out, it's Megaman's Soccer, not the newly updated Megaman Soccer. Come on guys!
