    I guess it’s nice to have the original on the 3DS. Though I’m still kinda waiting on a re-release of Mega Man 8.

  • damn japaneses.. they always get the best first… 

    • Haohmaru HL

      well it’s ovbious japan releases a japanese game in japan first :D

    Think I’ll stick with the enhanced PSN version on PS3/PSP (based on the PSX/Saturn Rockman Complete Works releases, same ones that are also on the Megaman Anniversary Collection).  Now if only they’d get around to releasing 5 and 6 on PSN… 

    • Rockman 5 has been on the Jap PSN Store for a good while now, but yeah Capcom US need get on the ball with those.

    man, i’ve beaten this game like 40 times during my whole life, and i would buy and do this again BUT i find 3ds’ dpad to be one of the worst if not the worst, i’m not gonna play my favourite platformer on that.. we’ll see what 3dsxl feels like but for now it’s a no-no.
    though i’m still kinda interested in rockman 2 3d version they promised long ago.

    This is like what? the 4th Megaman “port/remake” in the past year?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    …..while this is great.^^ However, i wanted MM2 more here.^^ AIRMAN GA TAOSENAIIII!!!

  • To bad there are no snes games on eshop if there were then maybe we could get megaman 7 but at least this means that we could eventually get all 6 megaman games that were released on nes.
