The series' 25th anniversary takes place this December

If we were to choose one franchise that is disappointingly absent from the 3DS library, it would have to be Mega Man. Following the soul-shattering decision to cancel Mega Man Legends 3, Capcom released Mega Man 1-3 on the 3DS eShop, but these Virtual Console titles have been limited to Japan.

With fans clamoring for a Western release, Capcom's Christian Svensson has posted on the company forums, asking fans to remain patient. His message was short:

Patience...we'll have things to discuss on this topic in the future.

Could Capcom be implying that a North American release is inbound? Perhaps closer to the series' 25th anniversary? It's too early to tell, but things could be looking up for Mega Man fans.
