Over two and a half years ago, Capcom re-released Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge, the first Mega Man game for the original Game Boy, on Nintendo's 3DS eShop Virtual Console. For North American gamers, the wait for the rest of the Game Boy and Game Boy Color installments is near its end. Today, Brett Elston of Capcom Unity announced that for North America, this May will be "Mega May," with the remaining six games hitting the Nintendo portable's digital distribution system throughout that month. The wrinkle is that the fans get a say in which game they see first!
The game with the most votes by the poll's end on April 14th at 10 PM PT will see release on May 1st, with the other five games seeing release every Thursday for the rest of May. By the end of that month, Mega Man II, III, IV, and V, along with Mega Man Xtreme and Mega Man Xtreme 2, will all be available for purchase from Nintendo's digital distribution system. While prices have not been announced, Dr. Wily's Revenge costs $3.99 while the Blue Bomber's NES installments each cost $4.99.
For most of these games, this marks the first official re-release in many years. Which game will you vote for? The series-redefining Mega Man IV, the completely original Mega Man V or the formidable Mega Man Xtreme 2? Tell us in the comments!
