There’s plenty of love for Mega Man today as Capcom has not only announced that Mega Man Zero is now on the Wii U Virtual Console, but there’s a huge Mega Man sale. This is all in part to commemorate twenty seven years of Mega Man by Capcom. The Mega Man games are discounted until December 22nd. Here’s the games you can get hold of via the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console.
- Mega Man II GB ($1.49)
- Mega Man III GB ($1.49)
- Mega Man IV GB ($1.49)
- Mega Man 5 NES ($2.49)
- Mega Man 6 NES ($2.49)
- Mega Man 7 SNES ($3.99)
I know you all love them so here’s another Teens React To video. This time the team have given a number of teens the chance to go hands on with the original Mega Man on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Naturally some are a little bewildered and there are plenty of cringe worthy moments, but it wouldn’t be a Teens React To video without them. Enjoy.
Thanks, Conor P
Super Smash Bros game director Masahiro Sakurai has showcased two new screenshots in his daily Miiverse picture. And it’s a day for Mega Man fans with two fantastic trophies featuring the classic anti-hero Bass and the Mega Man X protagonist and legendary fighter Zero. Both trophies are exclusive to the Wii U version and were made from scratch by the designers, as Sakurai says in his post.
The director also confirms the appearance of two other Mega Man characters in trophy form – Roll and Proto Man – cementing Nintendo’s relationship with Capcom further. Though we don’t get a glimpse of Roll and Proto Man’s trophies, it will be a nice surprise to fans of the franchise when Super Smash Bros for Wii U releases on November 21 for North America and December 5 for Europe. You can check out Sakurai’s Miiverse post below:
“Here’s Bass, a trophy for the Wii U version!! When I first saw this, I was really surprised by the quality of this trophy and Treble’s presence. Even though this will only appear as a trophy, this was made from the ground up. Designers really are amazing.
Capcom has today announced that the latest addition to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is Mega Man. Your Palico gets equipped with Mega Man armor and the mighty Rush Hammer in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Capcom has also revealed that Tetsuya Nomura designed characters for the Final Fantasy series has created special equipment for the game which you can view below.
Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed via Miiverse that Mega Man’s Dr Wily will be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS as a Trophy. Sakurai also mentioned that there will be a trophy shop in the game where you can purchase certain trophies for those not patient enough.
Here’s the trophy gallery for the 3DS version. You can rotate the trophies by drawing circles on the bottom screen. Super Smash Bros. Brawl had tons of trophies, but rumor has it that the 3DS version alone may have more than Brawl. Looks like the Dr. Wily that we made from scratch for the 3DS version is on his knees in disbelief.
Here’s something new–the trophy shop. If you’re having a hard time getting certain trophies, why not just buy them? They sometimes go on sale, too.
Capcom has confirmed that Mega Man Battle Network is set to arrive July 31st on the Wii U Virtual Console service in North America.

Mega Man Battle Network will be available later today, July 24, on Wii U in Europe. It will launch alongside ports of Mega Man 5 and Mega Man 6.
Nintendo Europe tweeted this morning that Mega Man 5 & 6 plus Mega Man Battle network will be coming to the European Wii U Virtual Console on the 24th of July. Mega Man 5 & 6 were originally on the Nintendo Entertainment System, while Mega Man Battle Network made its debut on the Gameboy Advance.
