I've been looking through Mega Man Powered Up and it might be possible to reconstruct the maps making use of the construction mode, since the tiles are flat and 2D as opposed to the 3D graphics in gameplay. It may not be perfect to the actual gameplay, but it means one can finally map out Time Man's and Oil Man's stages.

Interesting.  Is there also a construction mode for Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X?  Given that everyone seems to love Mega Man II so much, you'd think they would've also made a Powered Up 2...even if there aren't extra Robot Masters, to keep all games consistently at eight, it would be fun to play as them, as I hear is one of the features of the first Powered Up.

It would be nice to map up the remaining Mega Man games, because it really seems like Capcom doesn't care about Mega Man anymore, that it might actually be possible to have every Mega Man game mapped, if only briefly.  (Or at least the 2D ones.)

If you count each incarnation of Mega Man, I believe Mega Man is the character in the most video games, so the fact that we have most of the maps from the main games is certainly impressive already, but you know, at this point, why not a little more if possible, right?

I'm afraid there isn't a construction mode for Maverick Hunter X as it is a direct remake of Mega Man X, without any extras. However the Sigma Fortress levels are heavily changed in layout, which means mapping them if possible is definitely worth it. Unless the 2.5D platforms can be centralised and measure in grid, the maps will have to be improvised somehow.

EDIT:

Further research reveals that capsule, heart and part upgrades are changed in the stages from the original. In addition the upgrades, ride armours and enemy placements are changed when playing as Vile.

ADDITIONAL EDIT:

The 3D RPG Megaman X Command Mission, has got a 2D minimap of the various areas that you explore. It doesn't rotate, but its kind of transparent so some touching would have to be applied to make it a finished map, otherwise its rather easy to rip and assemble. Also the game has a web like 2D map system of each zone.

Will has revised his Mega Man: Battle Network 2 maps.  The various systems' entry points are now labelled, and many areas are consolidated as you would expect (i.e., all the "rooms" of the same general area are now in a large image showing how they are all connected, like what Peardian did with his Super Mario RPG maps earlier).  This brings the count of 161 maps down to an even 100.  I much prefer having fewer larger maps that are more informative than more smaller maps that are disconnected.  Not saying everything in one game should be crammed into a single image, unless it's natural and intuitive to do so (like in an interconnected-enough setting like the castles in Castlevania) - in general, what Will Mallia has done here works well for most JRPGs, I would think.

As Will has informed me, this evening I will need to (re)upload two of the town maps as they are not showing up.  Ironically for a game all about being connected to the Internet, its maps were having a number of issues last night during the upload.

I know I'm late to the party here, but I'd love to see those Mega Man X Command Mission in-game maps, if you're able. Smiley

Played a little bit of Mega Man: Legacy Collection on the 3DS last evening.  Bought it primarily for the gold Mega Man amiibo (I guess I'm a sucker for those).  I guess if Capcom won't make new games we can all play the first six games yet again?  As if the previous Anniversary Collection and various eShop rereleases hadn't already given us the opportunity...  Though there are now Challenges to do, those are new, like trying to get through remixed areas or do boss rushes in a certain amount of time.

Though you probably won't necessarily NEED maps for them, maps for the Challenges should be easy enough to create, if they are non-random (or even if they are) and only comprised of rooms from existing games.  In any case, we can now add Legacy Collection to the list of mappable Mega Man games...

Wow, can't believe it's been months later and I've barely played any Mega Man: Legacy Collection at all.  Which makes my next question sound odd, since we're already talking about Mega Man on handhelds...

Would it be worth getting a PSP just to (or primarily to) play Mega Man: Powered Up and Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X?
