The folks at the Capcom-Unity blog have announced the classic NES title Mega Man will release on the 3DS Virtual Console on December 27. Mega Man 2, the vastly improved sequel, will launch on February 7 next year, and the rest of the NES followups will come “in regular intervals throughout 2013”.
All of the Famicom games are out on the Japanese VC, and Mega Man has been available on the European VC for a while now. Good to know Capcom is rekindling the love for the Blue Bomber, after a disappointing last couple of years.
