It seems that pretty much since the first Smash Bros. on the N64, fans have been clamoring to see certain non-Nintendo characters appear in the series. Well, for Mega Man fans at least, that wish was first fulfilled in the version released on the WiiU and the 3DS.

In addition to actually playing as Mega Man in this game, it is possible to dress your “Mii” fighters as various characters. The Mega Man series related Mii outfits are all DLC (that is, you have to pay separately for them) so I’m not going to attempt to make a list of them here as they are being added to all the time and this page would quickly become out of date. As of this writing, you can find the list (along with pricing) on the official site.

On a personal note, I have a really hard time controlling Mega Man in this game. I don’t know whether it’s the general looseness of the controls, or if it’s because I’m trying to play him the way he plays in his console games, or something else. Either way, for the most part I haven’t gotten good at doing anything but button-mashing yet—which also means I’m likely not going to have detailed game hints to offer either.

I haven’t done a full review of the game yet, so as of yet this just consists of a list of some observations that came to mind while I was playing:
This assumes you are using the default 3DS controls. This details only the regular moves. The special attacks are in the next section.

A - Standard Attacks

B - Final Smash
Mega Man comes with a set of default special moves, as marked below. You can only customize his weapons in certain game modes, and you have to unlock most of his moves before you can use them.

B - Neutral Moves

Right+B - Side Moves Up+B - Up Moves Down+B - Down Moves
