Sequels were usually a good thing for a well-designed SNES game. This week’s Rom Hack Roundup features three sequels to North American games that never got translated to English, officially anyways. The translation patches are available to play these great games in English. You can check our always-present ROM patching tutorial for more info on getting started.
A long time ago, in an article far away, we reviewed a couple of great Megaman II ROM hacks. This article will expand on that one to look at some sweet hacks from the series, some that will seriously have you rethinking what the NES is capable of.

Any of these games can be found with a quick Google search. Just follow our IPS patching tutorial to learn how to modify your legally-obtained backup copy of the original ROM.
