It's coming

In early November we reported that Capcom was aiming to bring the NES Mega Man games to the 3DS Virtual Console, and it's now been confirmed that this will be a reality. With all of the NES titles already released in Japan and the original Mega Man available on the European eShop, the time for North America to join in has now arrived.

Capcom employee Brelston has taken to the Capcom Unity blog to confirm the good news, with the original Mega Man arriving on 27th December, and Mega Man 2 slated for 7th February 2013; the remaining four NES entries will arrive at "regular intervals" throughout 2013.

Of course it's only fitting as the Blue Bomber celebrates his 25th Anniversary; we'll be paying tribute here on Nintendo Life, so stay tuned.
