Capcom Issues Update On Game Boy Mega Man Titles Heading To 3DS Virtual Console
Posted by Andy Green
They're on the way, Mega Man X2 could also be possible
Capcom is celebrating a lot this year, with the company itself reaching its 30th anniversary and Mega Man hitting his 25th birthday.
While the Blue Bomber hasn't had a new game to celebrate the occasion, he is to be a playable character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS and there are a selection of classic Game Boy titles heading to the 3DS Virtual Console at some point.
Mega Man II, Mega Man III, Mega Man IV and Mega Man V are all on the way, while Game Boy Color titles Mega Man Xtreme and Mega Man Xtreme 2 are also in the pipeline.
In case you're wondering where those titles are, Capcom's senior online and community manager Brett Elston, has confirmed on the Capcom Unity forums things are progressing and it's appearing to take longer as the company made the announcement as soon as it was actually possible:
These are just a handful of titles in Nintendo's busy Virtual Console schedule. There are new titles releasing each week so that means a bit of a bottleneck. We basically announced these games as soon as it was possible to do so, which means anything already in the pipeline is ahead of all six Mega Man Game Boy titles.
He also confirmed the Super Nintendo title Mega Man X2 is a "likely candidate" as it was released on Wii Virtual Console, though he has no further update on that development just yet.
