Capcom has confirmed that Mega Man 3 will be coming to the North American 3DS Virtual Console next week — March 14th, to be precise.

Furthermore, the company has confirmed that Mega Man 4, 5 and 6 will launch in April, May and June respectively. We've no confirmation that the game will be hitting Europe in the same week too, but we've reached out to Nintendo and Capcom to find out.

This enthusiasm to get so many classic Mega Man titles onto the 3DS eShop is tied to the character's 25th birthday. Capcom has confirmed that more events are planned for the rest of the year — is an all-new game too much to hope for?
