After recently completing
the NES Mega Man hexalogy on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console, Capcom has announced
plans to bring six additional Game Boy Mega Man games to the Nintendo eShop in the coming months.
The monochrome Game Boy versions of Mega Man II, III, IV
, and V
are next up in Capcom's 3DS Virtual Console schedule. The first entry in the series, Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge
, hit the service back in 2011.
Capcom additionally announced plans to release 3DS Virtual Console versions of Mega Man Xtreme
and Mega Man Xtreme 2
, both of which are built on remixed elements from the Mega Man X series. A recent ESRB ratings submission
suggests that Mega Man's Game Gear spinoff may also be on tap for a Virtual Console release.
