More Mega Man goodness

Japan got seven Wii Virtual Console games last month while other regions got zero, but they still show no signs of stopping, as next month will offer another four. It's evenly divided between the Super Famicom and Neo Geo, with one of the games being another instalment in a certain Capcom series that ends with "X".

The full list for December is as follows:

Super Famicom

  • Majin Tensei II: Spiral Nemesis — Another Megami Tensei series spin-off, which like the previous one is a tactical RPG similar to the Fire Emblem series.
  • Rockman X2 — The second Mega Man X game, this one doesn't really change that much from the first.

Neo Geo

  • ASO II: Last Guardian — Released in the West as Alpha Mission II, this is a vertically scrolling shoot 'em up.
  • World Heroes 2 Jet — The third title in the World Heroes series and somewhat of an extension to World Heroes 2, though it's a little odd that Japan is getting this when the fourth game in the series, World Heroes Perfect, is already available there.

Japan's upcoming 3DS Virtual Console title will be the relatively obscure platformer Trip World for the Game Boy, which is somewhat of a spiritual successor to the also relatively obscure (But a bit of a cult classic) Mr. Gimmick! on the NES.
