Nintendo decided to casually drop EarthBound on the Wii U Virtual Console earlier today, ending the years upon years of waiting for North American and European gamers. Well, it seems the 3DS Virtual Console is also basking in the glow of some good news, as Capcom has revealed the Game Boy adaptations of Mega Man will blast into the eShop soon.

Brett Elston, senior online and community manager at Capcom, made the announcement that will see Mega Man II, Mega Man III, Mega Man IV and Mega Man V all come to the Virtual Console in the near future. Of course, Mega Man: Dr Wily's Revenge is already available to download and soon fans of the Blue Bomber will be able to have the full collection.

As if that wasn't enough, Mega Man Xtreme and Mega Man Xtreme 2 are also coming to the 3DS eShop, both of which are spin-offs of the Mega Man X series and were released on the Game Boy Color.

Capcom hasn't revealed any specific dates just yet but we imagine the games will be staggered over the coming months in the same way the NES iterations were.

Mega Man is celebrating his 25th anniversary this year and although there's been no news on a new title for him, at least we'll soon be able to jump into his portable past.
