USA VC Release: Mega Man 2

It's time for another catchup update: Today US Wii owners will be able to download what is almost certainly the most loved Mega Man game ever made: Mega Man 2. European Wii owners already got to rediscover its delights last December, meaning it's been a 9 month wait.

Mega Man 2 expands on the concepts of the first Mega Man - Aside from upping the initial stage count from 6 to 8, there's 8 entirely new Robot Masters to face. As Mega Man 2 is the most popular Mega Man game it's also got some of the most popular Robot Masters - You probably know the likes of Heat Man, Bubble Man, Wood Man and Quick Man. The game also has an amazing soundtrack (Compared to the original Mega Man's relatively mediocre tunes), which has since really been something the entire series is associated with.

That's all on VC this week, but do you really need something else with a game like Mega Man 2? If you've never played a Mega Man game before now is the time to do so - You will want to sharpen your skills before next week's release of Mega Man 9!

On WiiWare, later today you can either go overthrow a certain king in Strong Bad Episode 2: Strong Badia the Free, or try your hand at an interesting new puzzler called Potpourrii. Go to WiiWare World for detailed information!
