    its ok,
    still i dont see anyone pay money for this.

    • BleuVII

      $7.99 is a bit steep, but this game is worth it. The SNES cartridge retails for over $100 right now.

      • Attribule

        That’s $100 for a collector’s item, not indicative of the quality and value of the gameplay itself.

      • Nisx

        The SNES cartridge is a rare collectors item you cant compere it to this WII U virtual console version.

  • Tin o Beans

    I remember reading a tweet from Hideki Kamiya where he said that the wiiU wirtual console games were applied a filter to smooth out the pixels, is this true?

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    When I first saw them playing I almost thought it was the Wily Wars.

    Capcom’s been pushing Megaman a lot lately, releasing X4 and x5 on psn, and all the Virtual console stuff. Maybe their looking for a revival?

    • J_Joestar

      would be nice, but i wouldn’t put it past them to just be doing it because its a fairly quick and easy cash for stuff they already made years ago.

    • Not really, rereleasing old games is much safer than doing a new game.
      Wether Mega is coming back or not, I think this is nothing more but quick cash for them.

    • Fen Y

      Releasing old games in an architecture others provided isn’t pushing – it’s getting pushed or at least dragged.

      Sadly.

  • BleuVII

    For those that have never played it, this is a great Megaman game. As far as the classic series goes, it has so many collectibles and so much replay value. I mean, you can get Protoman’s shield in this game in addition to the amazing Rush Super Adaptor.

    It’s REALLY hard if you’re used to the Megaman X controls though, so be warned. This is Megaman classic.

  • Oh, this is not that great of a MM title. Mega Man & Bass if the 16-bit “classic style” Mega Man that everyone should play. And even then, I still hate the style they used for all the characters in these two SNES Mega Man titles.

    I don’t understand why “chubby little cartoon Mega Man” is the art style here. The Blue Bomber looked a lot better in the GENESIS Mega Man games:

    The SNES sprite just looks off. His head is to big and his body is too plump – the proportions aren’t right. His sprite in general is too large.

    • popyea

      He looks even chubbier in that pic to me. And that’s a good thing. I like mega man when he’s cute.

    • Monterossa

      I think MM7 is a good game and nothing wrong with its sprites.

    • Ricewarrior

      Head too big?

      You don’t like the 8-bit version either? I mean, his head in there is about as big as his whole body. Also he’s fatter in there.

  • Eh…not my favorite Mega Man. I was partially spoiled by Mega Man X, but still loved the MM universe. After MM6, entry number 7 was a disappointment.

  • Ric Vazquez

    I need this, nut have no Wii U…welp R.I.P wallet.
