Capcom will finally release Super Nintendo classic Mega Man X in Europe next month, nearly a whole year after its North American début in April 2011.

The 16-bit blaster isn't the only Virtual Console game present in Nintendo's release list for early 2012 — while there's no Strider or Super Street Fighter II with online play to be found here, there is Metal Slug 3 down for April.

La-Mulana is apparently out in April too.

Still, here's Europe's partial 2012 Wii list.
