The name is "Mega Man X" with a space between Mega and Man, as shown by the game's box. This is consistent with the naming of the games on the NES as well.

Already discussed.

"Megaman" casing and spacing is inconsistently applied on boxarts across titles for a system and/or different systems. You can find examples with "Megaman", "MegaMan" and "Mega Man".

So since "Rockman" is used in Japanese titles, "Megaman" is used in western ones.

Only report titles not using "Megaman". Other title errors are also to be reported :)

Note: SNES, GB, GBC, GBA and NDS (at least) use "Megaman". As per rpg2813 forum reports, NES seems to require some deep revision regarding consistancy with conventions being followed by other DATs.
