Alright, everyone: Let’s play a game of “Good News, Bad News.”
Good News: Mega Man: The Wily Wars is finally seeing a re-release in the U.S.!
Bad News: You have to buy a new portable system from SEGA in order to play it.
Good News: The system only costs $60, and comes pre-loaded with 79 other Genesis games! That’s less than a dollar a game!
Bad News: According to Sonic Retro, manufacturers At Games and Blaze are not known for their hardware producing quality emulations, with sound and graphical emulation errors reportedly being common among their releases.
Bad News: It won’t be released for Mega Man‘s 25th anniversary on December 17th.
Good News: If you’re still interested, it will instead be released on November 13th.
Further details from Siliconera note:
More games will be released for download on the Ultimate Portable Game Player, and you’ll be able to load them onto an SD card (not included with the device) that goes into an in-built SD card slot.
The Ultimate Portable Game Player will come with a 2.8” screen and a built-in rechargeable battery that you can charge with the included USB cable. If you have an AV cable (not included), you can plug the device into your television as well.
You can find the full list of games at Sonic Retro, including the other two Capcom games (hint: They’re both Street Fighter II).
