Ring in the New Year with Mega Man Christmas Carol Remix photo
Ring in the New Year with Mega Man Christmas Carol Remix
by Chris Carter

Mega Man fans are in for one last treat in 2012 -- another Mega Man Christmas Carol fangame! After the first and second iterations, Sprites Inc. is back with a third title, which is a remixed version of the first one with the new engine.

Christmas Carol Remix features five difficulty levels, three characters, new content, and achievements, all on top of a remastered version of the first Christmas Carol. Of course, sick holiday chiptunes make a welcome return.

You can download it for free here -- just be aware that the creator is constantly tweaking the game with balance patches and bug fixes.
