North America getting one Mega Man game a week in August

mega-man

If you enjoyed Nintendo’s Mega May promotion for the Nintendo 3DS earlier this year, you’re about to get a lot more excited. Nintendo just announced that one new Mega Man game a week will be released on the Wii U virtual console in August. There’s no list of games that will be included in this promotion, but given the sheer amount of Mega Man games available, we expect fans will be pleased.

If you like Mega Man, then you’re in for a treat – a classic Mega Man game will release every Thursday in August in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U!

It’s nice to see Capcom supporting the virtual console in this way, as it is one of the week spots of the Wii U compared to the original Wii. Perhaps Sega could take a lesson? Currently there’s no word on whether or not this promotion will be available outside of North America, but Europe has received a handful of Mega Man games on the virtual console already.

    This promotion actually starts today with Mega Man Battle Network.

    • Darius

      is that game any good?

      • nintendope

        I played it way back when it came out.. It bored the crap out of me but at the time you had no choice but to commit to a game. I ended up liking it.. but It was hard to get into.

        • nintendope

          At the time I wasn’t into RPGs that much.. I loved megaman to death that why I bought it (my parents bought it actually, lol)

        • greengecko007

          Hard to get into is a good way to describe it. There are fun parts of the game, but there are also a lot of parts that just drag.

      • Lil J Moore

        Very good. give a shot

      • greengecko007

        It’s a decent series. The RPG aspects are nice and the boss battles are the same high quality you’d expect from any Mega Man game, but they are incredibly formulaic and repetitive, and doing mundane tasks just to progress through the story really drags at times.

      • Theamazingdude

        No. It’s one of those 123ABC baby games. That’s why it’s on a Nintendo system.

        • Darius

          Listen troll of you want to be noticed that badly then how about considering suicide? In your case it might be a Win Win situation you’ll get the attention you crave and no one else would have to be bothered with you ever again

          • 00EpicGamer00

            I think that’s a bit TOO harsh, lol. He’s just a retard craving for attention. I don’t think there’s any reason to kill themselves over something as silly as that. Is he annoying? Absolutely. Does he deserve to die? No.

          • Darius

            I was only giving advice lol

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Well, you know what they say “sometimes one must be sacrificed for the good of many.” His sacrifice would surly be good for all of us, lol. But it’s not recommended. :/

        • Black Blackington

          Fuck yourself, Cracker Bitch.

          • Theamazingdude

            Watch your language.

      • James Kephart

        I loved this game when it came out. I just played it for two hours, and it is still really fun.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        I find them lame. Better off with the originals. Just my experiences.

    • Will.F. Martinez

      Seriously. I’m heading. To the eshop now

    • sophi444

  • anthony optimo

    Mega man soccer please.

  • Theamazingdude

    Nintendrones are so desperate for video games they have to cling to old outdated games. Simply amazing. Their kind are pathetic. Why would people really want these games? Look at the graphics. Clearly unimpressive.

    • marloc_x

      Alright, who sent in the clown?

    • Squid

      Yello, this isn’t a new game, this is a old downloadable game. They don’t rely on this. They rely on their very polished first party games.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      I hate to drop to this level, but are “Sonydrones” desperate for video games as well? Since Sony has PS2 games on the PS3 store? And with the new “Playstation Now” service, you’ll be able to play old, outdated PS3 games on your PS4.

      • anthony optimo

        They are xb1 drones. Sony won’t have them.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Are you saying Sony doesn’t have “drones” like that? If so, I agree. I don’t have much experience with Microsoft. Except I know the drones/fanboys are really stupid.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Drones from any platform are all whack jobs. Simply put.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Very true. No one can argue with that.

          • anthony optimo

            when a new highly innovative Mario game is released haters hate, but when the same halo game is re re re rehased with barely undated visuals it’s treated like a brand new game. Last of us is in the same boat. Drones are everywhere, ce la vide.

    • Zanzama
    • megamanjuno

      Damn graphics whores. There is more to a good game than looking pretty I’ll play my ps4 and my nes and enjoy the games on both.

  • Squid

    This shocked me for a second, I read “North America getting a new Megaman game next week”

  • Korv13

    I want Mega Man X3. I tried to get this game for my Super Nintendo but the cartridge is rare and costs over 100$!

    • Arthur Jarret

      In general, the playstation version is available for a cheaper price.

      Although – if you’re in the US – I recommend tracking down Megaman X collection for Xbox, PS2 or gamecube instead.

      • Korv13

        Ah yes, I forgot to look for re-releases! Thank you for the recommandation!

  • Epicstuf

    What about SNES on 3DS? JESUS NINTENDO, ADD COMPATIBILITY! AND DON’T MAKE ME HAVE TO BUY A FLASHCART JUST TO PLAY MEGA MAN X!!!!

  • mojack411

    I read the title and interpreted it as a “free” Mega Man game every week.

    I am disappoint.

    Still very cool to see the support though!

  • Glocklin

    it would be nice if they were discounted like the virtual console games were on the Wii U launch. I have the Megaman Collection on gamecube and would not like to pay a small fortune to get it on Wii U.

    • C.S. Bailey

      Sadly, I would be willing to pay a small for that same collection again. For some series, it’s like a drug I need to kick. I have so many versions of Zelda games I should be ashamed.

  • C.S. Bailey

    Just going to ask the family to put money on my eShop account for my birthday, it will make things much easier for everyone.

  • TheGrizzledBoor

    Really excited about this! ALL HAIL MEGAMAN!

    • Epicstuf

      DAFUQ?

  • Prizm

    It seems Megaman gets re-released every two years. It’s getting a bit old. Get on to Capcom’s ass and get us HD versions of MM 1-3 already. Or stop scraping the barrel with these constant re-releases and give us some new VC games that haven’t been done to death.

  • Rinslowe

    Supporting North America with VC promos “is goood”…
