Ogre Battle, Mega Man III Bound For Japan’s Virtual Console

By Spencer . October 31, 2008 . 7:52am

ogre November is another slow month for the Virtual Console in Japan. Fortunately, next month has a few quality games like Mega Man III and Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen. The expensive on eBay Super Nintendo game will be released in Japan for a very reasonable 800 Wii Points ($8). Don’t be too envious. Square Enix will probably release Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen in North America too since they spent money on registering a trademark for the Ogre Battle name in North America. It’s only a matter of time until that and the Master System version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 come here. You’ll probably want to skip the Master System version unless you have a morbid curiosity for all things Sonic.


Here’s what Japan is getting in November 2008. Games marked with a star are due to come out next Thursday.

    Cool. And since Enix did the original translation on the SNES Ogre Battle, we’ll probably get it here as well!

    MegaMan 3 and Mercs are great too.
