Worldwide Virtual Console Outlook: Mega Man the Dolphin edition

This article is over 17 years old and may contain outdated information

Europe is the first region to pick up Mega Man and it’s out on the virtual console today for 500 Wii Points. While seeing Mega Man brings up nostalgic memories of fighting the Rock Monster, it’s a much better deal to pick up Mega Man Anniversary collection for $20 (or less!) instead of spending $5 per release. However, since Capcom skipped out on releasing the massive and cheap collection of Mega Man games the virtual console is the only legal way (* besides importing!) for European gamers to replay the Mega Man games short of owning the original cartridges.

Ecco the Dolphin 2 (aka Ecco: The Tides of Time) is a follow up and a direct sequel to Ecco the Dolphin where the Vortex Queen follows Ecco to Earth. Following Ecco is Pooyan, a port of the arcade game where you play as a mother pig who shoots arrows at wolves holding balloons. Also it's time to note that Breath of Fire 2 and Paper Mario were supposed to come out this month too. Since next week is the end of June and they aren't on the list it is likely both of the games are going to be delayed until July.
