Mega Man Game Boy collection hitting 3DS Virtual Console

Mega Man 2

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.
