More Mega Man Still Headed To Virtual Console, But It Might Take A While


Earlier in the year, Capcom announced that more Mega Man games are headed to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console, including the numbered Mega Man games for the Game Boy, as well as Mega Man Xtreme 1 and 2 for Game Boy Color. However, it might be a while before you see these titles released.


Capcom’s Brett Elston writes on Capcom-Unity:


Still no concrete date set. There’s still a fair amount of coordination that has to happen among NOA/CUSA/Capcom Japan/Nintendo Japan, plus slotting in games when Thursday is the only day, per week, when VC games hit Wii U / 3DS. I would love to get them out this year—and am pushing for that—but it’s a bigger task than me simply setting a date.


But yeah, they’re definitely still coming (+ Xtreme and Xtreme 2).


We’ll have a follow-up report ready once Capcom have shared further details of their ongoing Mega Man support for Virtual Console.
