This was mentioned as a footnote in a previous post, but Rockman 3 will be coming to Japan's newly launched Wii U Virtual Console on May 1st for the the typical ¥500 (or ¥100 with a Wii transfer). It's a little curious that they would start with 3, as past VC updates on other systems have come in order. I would imagine they just want some high profile titles to get things rolling, and it's certainly fine for Rockman to make it in such a lineup.
No word yet on when Mega Man is hitting western Virtual Consoles, but we do know it's coming.
Thanks to PressStart for the tip!
