On New Year's Eve, Akane is calling her brother Yuuta to go downstairs and celebrate with rice cakes, but he is in the last stage of a Mega Man game and gives trouble to go downstairs. The two argue and accidentally hit the console. Mega Man gets pulled out into the real world again, so he gets to celebrate New Year's with the Kobayashi family, while Dr. Wily ends up at Dr. Light's lab, where he steals Dr. Light's newest creation, a time machine, and kidnaps Roll when she tries to stop him.
Dr. Light creates a device to follow Wily through the time vortex. While Mega Man rescues Roll, Wily escapes. It is revealed that Wily plans on showering Japan with meteorites on the Tanabata, a day when the citizens traditionally make wishes upon stars. If Dr. Wily wins, he'll make the stars crash down on everyone! Can Mega Man stop Wily in time?
