Mega Man 7 & Mega Man X3 Hit Europe's Virtual Console This Week

It looks as though Japan isn't the only one getting a bit of Blue Bomber love to digitally download (is there any other kind?) this week.

According to a report by Nintendo Insider, it seems that Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X3, which had both been made available in the North American Nintendo eShop in previous months, will be available in Europe as of the 6th of November-- or today as of this writing, if our calculations are correct.

Each game will be available on the Wii U Virtual Console for the price of £5.49 (€7.99), with Mega Man 7 marking the first appearance of fan favorite rivals Bass and Treble. Meanwhile, Mega Man X3 is the first time Zero-- or anyone else, really-- became a playable character in a Mega Man game that wasn't a spin-off of some sort, as well as debuting perennial 90's fan favorite character Mac.
