Mega Man Game Boy collection hitting 3DS Virtual Console
Capcom is expanding its library of Mega Man games on the 3DS Virtual Console with six additional classics, the publisher has announced.
Dr. Wily's Revenge for Game Boy and a number of Nintendo Entertainment System-era titles are available for download on the Virtual Console. Now Mega Man 2, 3, 4, and 5 for Game Boy are coming to the platform along with Game Boy Color titles Mega Man Xtreme 1 and 2. All six remix aspects of the NES and SNES originals, respectively.
Mega Man 5 is one of the more unique entries in the Game Boy series. "Instead of Robot Masters, Mega Man fights Stardroids, and instead of a typical Mega Buster charged shot, he has a Mega Arm projectile attack (similar to the MM6/7 Rush upgrade)," reads a Capcom-Unity post. "It's a very clever entry that's been hard to legitimately play for years, so pick it up!"
Capcom has yet to set release dates.
