Australia Rates Mega Man X2 for Virtual Console

Posted by James Newton

Things are looking up

Mega Man X2 is set to hit the Japanese Virtual Console next month, and while we can only speculate on when or if the game will see release outside of Japan, the Australian Classifications Board has given gamers a glimmer of hope.

The site has rated the game for release in Australia, giving it a PG certificate and hopefully sending it on its way towards the Wii's download service in the not-too distant future.

If an indication of a Western release, the game would join Super Street Fighter II with online play and Strider as another quality release on the way to the Virtual Console in the coming months or, perhaps, years.

bout time, here's hoping we hear something from the ESRB to further the chances of this seeing a worldwide release, even though I'm not really a MM fan, and don't really buy VC games, I'm all for having options

Austrailia normally gets games at the same time as Europe so this is good news but what about MM5 and MMX? Thos haven't been released in Europe yet.

This game has already been rated by the ESRB. I'd imagine we'll get it when they start bringing VC games to the Wii again, whenever that might be.

Well it's looking better for the chances of MM X2 getting released finally! Now I wonder if X3 has a chance?
Sure hope so.

Good news. Never really played X2 and X3, so looking forward to them coming out. Hopefully it also means that X1 isn't too far away either.

You would think...
