Wii U Virtual Console eShop Update Gets Mega With Mega Man Zero 4 And Mega Man Battle Network 5


mega man zero 4


Two major Mega Man games are coming to the North American eShop on December 17. Or rather, three is more accurate. The Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console will be getting Mega Man Zero 4, Mega Man Battle Network 5: Team Colonel, and Mega Man Battle Network 5: Team Protoman.


Mega Man Zero 4 immediately follows the events of Mega Man Zero 3. In it, Zero helps defend Area Zero, a place capable of supporting human life, from Dr. Weil and his Warriors. It is the last installment in the Mega Man Zero series.


Mega Man Battle Network 5 is the second to last Battle Network game, with both versions coming to the Nintendo Wii U eShop. Nebula has taken over the internet. It’s up to Lan and Mega Man, joining either Baryl in Team Colonel or Chaud in Team Protoman, to help reclaim it and discover what Lan’s father was working on before he was kidnapped by Nebula. Aside from different leaders, each version has different Navi teams, Soul Unisons, Giga Chips, and Liberate Missions. The Virtual Console releases are also the Game Boy Advance versions of Mega Man Battle Network 5, not the Nintendo DS releases.


Mega Man Battle Network 5: Team Colonel and Team Protoman will be $6.99 each for the Nintendo Wii U. Mega Man Zero 4 will be $7.99.
