3DS Virtual Console to get all the Mega Man Game Boy Games
« on: July 18, 2013, 08:27:16 PM »
Alas, my MMMania GameStop purchased slip, I hardly knew ye.

According to Capcom-Unity, every Mega Man game on the Game Boy will be joining Mega Man in Dr. Wily's Revenge on the 3DS Console.

More good news for the Virtual Console today...

Quite a while ago, the first Game Boy Mega Man title (Dr Wily's Revenge) landed on the 3DS VC. That naturally led most of us to wonder, "are the rest of the GB games coming to 3DS?" Welp, after a year of wondering that myself, I'm happy to say Mega Man II, III, IV and V are ALL coming soon to the US and EU.

This is a great piece of news, as Mega Man V remains one of the coolest oddball (used in the most affectionate way possible) games in the series. Instead of Robot Masters, Mega Man fights Stardroids, and instead of a typical Mega Buster charged shot, he has a Mega Arm projectile attack (similar to the MM6/7 Rush upgrade). It's a very clever entry that's been hard to legitimately play for years, so pick it up!

Mega Man IV is equally impressive, combining aspects of the NES Mega Man 4/5 to create one new experience. I daresay it's the best of the NES mimics (I, II and III also mix enemies and bosses from the NES) and well worth a look.

But wait, there's more!

Mega Man Xtreme 1 and 2 are ALSO coming to 3DS! Like the aforementioned GB titles, these two remix aspects of the SNES games (plus some X4 stuff in Xtreme 2) to create something new. Xtreme 2 is particularly interesting, with its playable Zero and DNA souls / parts system.

Now, we don't have release dates set just yet, but given how cool this information is (especially MMV), I thought it was worth sharing ASAP. I'll certainly share the dates as soon as we lock 'em down, and we should have even more VC updates in the coming weeks.

Here's the link.

Well, if I can assign SNES controls to the Xtreme games, perhaps I'll actually give them the time of day!  8D

Your link was broken, so I fixed it for ya!

Anyway, CAN'T WAIT to buy the Xtreme titles again. Those games, along with Power Quest, were the best times I've had with the Game Boy! <3

I'll probably nab Xtreme 2 and maybe give the GB Mega Man V a look; I remember people saying it was the best one of the game boy games.

I don't think the 3DS Virtual Console allows you to map buttons.  So...I guess hope they come out on WiiU?

Whatever.  I'm getting Xtreme2 as soon as it's out.

though i have to wonder, is THIS their surprise announcement?
A rehashed game belonging to a system not called NES beats the hell out of any other "surprise announcements" they've come up with in the last two years.

Yeah, you do. You buy them like any other game.

But the 3DS ones are usually $4-$6 bucks. So not too pricey.

Of course, how soon is soon?

Like... All before the end of this year? Speaking of which, we should get X2 and X3 soon.

As much as I still want carts for IV and V, I might get them on 3DS instead now.

Also, note to self: stop forgetting to buy Mega Man 6.
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

Sadly I'm not into Virtual Console these days, mostly because of the concept of emulation. X(
Though I did get an actual MMII cart a few months ago.

Hey look PR Bullshit on why these aren't out yet.

"Coordination between NOA/CUSA/Capcom Japan/Nintendo Japan" Probably means something like Nintendo deliberately holding them back because they feed off this drip feed release schedule bullshit. Not that them scheduling dates would do any good since games that have had set dates have been pushed back before with little to no reason/warning.
