Vintage Mega Man Porting to the 3DS
With the Blue Bomber’s 25th birthday in the bag, Capcom has decided to shine the limelight over Mr. Man’s erstwhile adventures in all their 8-bit glory. Already released in the European and Japanese markets, 3DS owners in the U.S. region will be able to download the original Nintendo’s Mega Man 1 through 6 straight from the eShop.
Unfortunately for (digital) collectors and impatient retro gamers alike, the NES games won’t be released all at once, the titles instead dropping one by one starting on December 27th with the first Mega Man and continuing with the February 7th release of Mega Man 2. Capcom promises the final four ports will launch in 2013 at regular intervals.
