Mega Man X the Highlight of Europe's Wii Schedule

Posted by James Newton

Notable absences, though

Capcom will finally release Super Nintendo classic Mega Man X in Europe next month, nearly a whole year after its North American début in April 2011.

The 16-bit blaster isn't the only Virtual Console game present in Nintendo's release list for early 2012 — while there's no Strider or Super Street Fighter II with online play to be found here, there is Metal Slug 3 down for April.

La-Mulana is apparently out in April too.

Still, here's Europe's partial 2012 Wii list.

I'll definitely get The last story, Bit. trip complete and Pandora's tower at some point and I might get Rhythm paradise fever.
EDIT: I forgot Mario party 9, I'll probably get that at some point too.

Not bad, not brilliant. Only want Mario Party 9 on there and possibly Rhythm Paradise/Heaven Fever. There are some good title on that list, but its slowing downam no chance for Excitebots in Europe then.

Nope. We got a Konami game that Australia did not get (I forget which) and in return, they got Axelay that we aren't going to get. I don't know why it happened like this.

Well Nintendo has moved onto their handheld now. Sony's has only just come out and Microsoft doesn't have one. Besides, the PS3 and XBOX 360 are generally doing better than the Wii has been doing in a long time.

I hope we get Mega Man X this week. I have the points for it for months now.
