ロックマン５ ブルースの罠!? © 1992 Capcom Company, Limited.
(Rockman 5 - Blues no Wana!?)
Fifth action-platform game in the Rockman series. Taking place after the events of Rockman 4, Rock's brother and ally Proto Man leads a group of menacing robots in attacks on the world and kidnaps his creator Dr. Light, forcing Mega Man to fight against his brother. Rockman 5 carries over the same graphical style and action-platforming gameplay as the four preceding chapters in the series. The game introduces a new character, Beat, a robotic bird that the player can use as a weapon once a series of eight collectible letters are found.
Game ID: CAP-5V
Rockman 5 was released on December 04, 1992.
Having had major involvement in the development in all prior Rockman games, artist Keiji Inafune worked under a new project leader for Rockman 5. As with past entries in the series, Inafune used his experience to guide his supervisor and the other team members. He did this in order to avoid making what he considered to be an "unreasonable game, [...] an affront to the players". As a result of this leadership, Inafune felt Rockman 5 turned out with a lower difficulty level. The team already felt they had accomplished all the gameplay they could with the release of Rockman 4, so they decided to simply "introduce powered up versions of everything", such as the Mega Buster. After working diligently on the fourth installment of the series and being the man behind the concept of the chargeable Mega Buster, Hayato Kaji was called in to help out during the middle of Rockman 5's development. The game was "taking a while to come together" at that point according to Kaji. Inafune summarized his work on Rockman 5 as being fun, but he admitted having trouble with the designs, balance, and colors.
In a new direction Capcom held a contest in collaboration with Nintendo Power Magazine requesting submissions for new villain characters, the eight Robot Master bosses in Rockman 5 are a result of fans sending in their own designs to Capcom. Capcom received over 130,000 character submissions for the game. Inafune recounted having a difficult time getting approval on the chosen bosses, having had to re-illustrate them several times. However, the artist had little trouble in designing Beat, whose first draft was accepted by Inafune's superiors. The idea for Beat originated in the development of Rockman 3, where the concept support robots included a dog and bird. The team chose to keep the dog character as Rush for this earlier game, while the bird would serve as the basis for the character Beat in Rockman 5.
