Mega Man: The Board Game Now Available for Pre-order in North America

Time to power up
Mega Man enthusiasts that aren't averse to browsing a bit of crowdfunding will have no doubt followed, with interest, last year's Kickstarter campaign from Jasco Games. Its crowdfunding project for an officially licenced board game based on the classic Capcom series was unsurprisingly popular, raising $415,041 when it had sought just $70,000. It looks rather detailed and complicated, too, which is part of the point when you sit down at a table to play a game for a few hours.
Naturally, fans will be excited to play this, especially those that backed the campaign and are waiting for a big box in the mail. Jasco Games has now opened up pre-orders for those eager to play that didn't jump into the crowdfunding initiative, accepting payment via Paypal on its official website. It is relatively pricey and pre-orders are currently limited to North America, with a price of $79.99 in the U.S. and $94.99 for Canada and Mexico — delivery is expected in October this year.
