Mega Man 3 NES to SNES

Developer Infidelity has just publicly released his latest NES to SNES conversion, for the game Mega Man 3.  As with his previous conversions, these eliminate slowdown, reduce sprite flicker and allow for SNES-related enhancements that aren’t possible on NES hardware.  This is a public release, however please consider supporting on Patreon, to fund further conversions!  More info after the links:

If you’d like more details as to why these NES -> SNES ports are such a big deal, I already covered this in a previous post and discussed it during Weekly Roundup #361 at the 12min mark:  I didn’t want to repeat everything here, so I thought it was just best to link to the other explanation.  Also, here’s the listed info and changes made:
