Game Gear Mega Man Could be Destined for the 3DS Virtual Console
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Seems likely thanks to ESRB rating
We've sure had a lot of retro Mega Man on Nintendo systems recently, with both the 3DS and Wii U Virtual Consoles bringing us fresh experiences that we hadn't enjoyed since the Wii Virtual Console; sarcasm aside, they've been additional opportunities for newcomers to the series to see what fans have been banging on about. Not finished yet, Capcom blogger Brelston teased more retro Mega Man goodies on the Virtual Console, which led us to speculate on which remaining titles were on the way.
Capcom could be pulling a fast one, however, if a new ESRB listing is anything to go by; the listing is for Mega Man on the Game Gear. Considering the recent mini-glut of Game Gear releases on the 3DS Virtual Console, it's not beyond the realm of possibility. This particular version of the game was actually based on parts of NES titles Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5, with little variations to accommodate the hardware. It was also developed by a studio called Freestyle, under license from Capcom, was only released in North America and isn't typically regarded as a strong point for the series.
The listing itself isn't definitive proof that this is coming to the 3DS eShop, but it sure seems likely. What do you think, Blue Bomber fans, fancy jumping into this Game Gear entry in the series?
