Six portable classics are about to hit the North American Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS! The four remaining Game Boy Mega Man titles AND Mega Man Xtreme 1~2 (of Game Boy Color fame) are nearly ready for their eShop debut, and both Capcom Unity and Nintendo want YOU to decide which one launches first!

Vote in the above poll by 10am PT April 14 to make your choice known. Which of these classics will take the top spot? Mega Man V, with its unique Mega Arm and Stardroids (no Wily!)? Or perhaps you'd prefer Xtreme 2, with playable Zero and DNA Soul System?

Either way, the winning title will release on May 1, 2014. After that, it's "Mega May" as the remaining titles release each Thursday. Pick your favorite, but should your choice not release first, it'll still be out mere weeks later :)

While I will keep my vote secret for now (can't sway the vote!), please share your choices and rally others to get your favorite out on May 1!

Nearly ready? Bullshit, they're ready to go. Just dump them all at once.

Good on them for not waiting another year to release them after the announcement.

Make color versions of the old GB games and you might entice me to get it. Otherwise, why bother buy games I already own?

Results are hidden to me now at least.  Also people in the comments are screaming for Battle Network games for some reason.....

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

It would be though I would only want 2, 3, maybe 5, and 6.

If they did 5 I'd think they'd rather wait till they do DS VC so they can get Double Team on there instead.

Though all those nice GBA slot functions would be gone.

The correct answer is V because, although a fantastic game, no one should be paying the prices people ask for for the cartridge.

Meh. I'll buy it but i'm waiting on V and Xtreme 2 personally.

I'm surprised that won the vote. I woulda thought Xtreme 2 would get way more votes than 1.

Although, this way makes much more sense. Next week will be II and III, the week after will be IV, the week after that will be V, and the last week of May will be Xtreme 2.

... What's wrong with the people who voted for Xtreme 1. That was quite possibly the worst choice on there (yes, worse than II).

Its not really a bad game.

Just not terribly original, its just retreads after all.

No no, it's terrible alright.

But then, you should all know my thoughts on those games!  8D

Boy, if only you could remap the dash control to select, because the Y button works as a substitute for that.

But you can't because the remapping options are so limited.

Didn't Xtreme 2 allow for button remapping to some degree? I mean, Xtreme 1 was pretty poorly coded and done overall, but that's gotta suck if there's no way to get a reasonable button remap for it.

Xtreme 1 gives the option to switch between only allowing Command Dashing/ Down+Jump or also allowing Start to be used. Yeah, Start should be for the [tornado fang]ing menu, not dashing.

Wii U VC lets you configure controls, so there really should be that option on 3DSVC.

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

But see, they did the 3DS stuff before they did the Wii U stuff so in their mind they don't feel like going back and updating all of the older games with new options. Though I think Game Gear and PC Engine games allow for button remapping...

I think it was Select.  Or at least, it's Select in Xtreme2, where it should obviously be used for Scramble Changing. 8D

Yeah, I'm going bonkers waiting for Xtreme2.  Just over a week to go...

At least the GB VC games map Select to Y as well.

Never really got this. Why not just release it chronologically like the NES titles on the Virtual Console? Can people really not wait to play Mega Man V?

They... did?

After Xtreme 1 they did the rest of the games in order.
