Mega Man Xtreme 2 And Klonoa: Empire of Dreams Out Today On Virtual Console

By Ishaan . May 29, 2014 . 11:01am


Mega Man Xtreme 2 is out on the Nintendo eShop for 3DS today in North America, and the game costs $4.99.


The game is a follow-up to Mega Man Xtreme and, similar to the other Game Boy Mega Man titles, re-uses ideas from Mega Man X games on consoles. Both X and Zero are playable, and you can unlock an “Xtreme” difficulty that lets you play as either character whenever you want.


Beating the Xtreme mode further unlocks the Boss Attack mode, where you can fight the eight bosses from Xtreme 2 and the bosses from Mega Man Xtreme as well.


Also available today in North America for the Wii U Virtual Console is KLONOA: Empire of Dreams. The game has already been released on the Virtual Console in Europe.


Update: Whoops! We said 3DS Virtual Console instead of Wii U in the case of Klonoa. We’ve rectified the error. Sorry for any shattered dreams!

    More Klonoa? Never a bad thing!

    • Spirit Macardi

      What do you mean “more”? This is the first the little guy has shown his face since Namco cancelled his web comic.

      • Keiji Johnson

        Klonoa had a web comic?! O_O When the heck did that happen?

        • Spirit Macardi

          A while ago on ShiftyLook alongside other neglected Namco properties like Bravoman and Wonder Momo.

          You can still read it, but it ends on a huge cliffhanger that’s never going to be resolved…

  • CozyAndWarm

    Nice, been waiting for Xtreme 2

  • ClaireBeare

    Is this is a mistake? I would think I’d see news of 3DS actually getting GBA games being blown up every where.

    • glasssoldier

      Xtreme 2 was actually a GBC game.
      Edit: Realized you probably ment Klonoa

    • Zero_Destiny

      Sorry, but … typo ^^:; Was suppose to say Megaman Xtreme 2 for 3DS, KLONOA for Wii U. lol

      • Gael Summers

        Oh not cool. I’m sitting here like a fool looking through the eshop for Klonoa lol

      • @ClaireBeare:disqus @Zero_Destiny:disqus Fixed! Sorry about that.

  • Xtreme 2 is among my favorite of the handheld games, definitely gonna buy

  • Ms_Fortune


  • Spirit Macardi

    I was hoping maybe they’d announce Empire of Dreams for the US alongside news of him as a new Smash character, but oh well this is still awesome~

    I’m purchasing as I speak :3

  • Keiji Johnson

    If only they did release more GBA games on the 3DS Virtual Console instead of just the Wii U Virtual Console.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Klonoa is doing REALLY well on VC right now! People are snatching it from the eShop and filling the Miiverse community with hype and fan support.

    So Namco, you going to remove the handcuffs from Yoshizawa and let him continue the series, or are you going to come up with a new excuse now that “it doesn’t sell” and “no interest from fans” are off the table? ;3
