If we were to choose one franchise that is disappointingly absent from the 3DS library, it would have to be Mega Man. Following the soul-shattering decision to cancel Mega Man Legends 3, Capcom released Mega Man 1-3 on the 3DS eShop, but these Virtual Console titles have been limited to Japan.

With fans clamoring for a Western release, Capcom's Christian Svensson has posted on the company forums, asking fans to remain patient. His message was short:

Patience...we'll have things to discuss on this topic in the future.

Could Capcom be implying that a North American release is inbound? Perhaps closer to the series' 25th anniversary? It's too early to tell, but things could be looking up for Mega Man fans.
