Mega Man X2 Headed to Virtual Console

Well X fans, if figures galore weren't enough, how about another retro download? Mega Man X2 is headed to the Wii's Virtual Console service! So far this is confirmed for both Japan and North America.

Nintendo of Japan's VC lineup has Rockman X2 listed for a December release, just in time for the game's 17th anniversary. Meanwhile, notification of the game's North American release comes by way of the ESRB, where the game is already rated Everyone (phew!). Since NA tends to get the releases after Japan, we can probably expect an early 2012 release, but perhaps sooner anyhow!
