I've not seen the European version of today's Nintendo Direct, but given the timing of Inti Creates' Twitter post, it seems likely that is where they made the announcement of when Azure Striker Gunvolt is coming to Europe and Australia.Read More
It was just last week that we were here discussing the newly-announced Wii U Virtual Console release of Mega Man Battle Network (aka Rockman.EXE) 4: Blue Moon and Red Sun in Japan, as well as Europe having a slight lead on North America when it comes to the Mega Man Zero series.Read More
Azure Striker Gunvolt was released late last year in Japan and North America, but folks in Europe and Australia have had to wait a bit more for its release in their regions. Fortunately, news today has revealed that they won't have to wait much longer!Read More
Whereas Rockman X2 arrived on the Wii U Virtual Console in Japan on October 9th, it appears that all signs (which is to say, Wikipedia and this post on GoNintendo) point to the second major clash between X and the Reploids of Sigma's original Maverick uprising will be hitting the European version of the service on Thursday, November 14th, 2013. In other words, tomorrow, though as of this writing, that would be today in Europe.Read More
Just in time (well, minus two weeks) for you to begin playing along to A Critical Look at Mega Man 5 Stages, the penultimate game in the Blue Bomber's NES legacy has been released to the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America and Europe (thanks, Rockman) alike. $4.99 is all it takes to go take the fight to Proto Man(?!) on the go, complete with the added convenience of save states.
And because we know some of you are wondering, yes the "?!" was sarcastic. Very much so. Go play now.
Well, as we begin wrapping up "A Critical Look at Mega Man 4 Stages," what better time for the game to hit the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America and Europe than tomorrow? Well, maybe when we began Mega Man 4, granted; at least Mega Man 5 will be available shortly after we begin covering that game, so you can play along if you like!
Thanks to BANJO BANJO for the reminder (via GoNintendo)!
Ah, any excuse to post this amazing box art is great. Good news, fellow fans east of the Atlantic. If you didn't hear, Mega Man 2 is now available for you on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. You can buy this classic for £4.49/€4.99. North Americans, fear not. Mega Man 2 is planned to come your way later this week, February 7th for $4.99. Grab what is arguably the best Mega Man game ever made. (Now you will all proceed to argue with me.) News Credit: GoNintendo
Good news for folks east of the Atlantic. Nintendo of Europe has announced that the NES classic Mega Man 2 will become available on the 3DS's eShop sometime in Q1 of 2013. It appears Europe will be getting the classic Mega Man titles in a steady stream, albeit slower than the Japanese releases so far. As for the games coming to North America, well, starting to sound a bit like a broken record, eh?
Thanks to XD375 for the tip!
Knock knock, our faithful fans across the Atlantic. Your 3DS is about to get a dose of classic Mega Man. The original NES title is coming to the eShop's Virtual Console this Friday, on October 18th, for £4.50 / €5.00. I'm not sure about other digital versions of the game, but this one won't have that awful slowdown due to differences in screen refresh. You can see some screens and video at Nintendo UK's site. And what about us poor folks sitting in North America? (I ask as I type from my apartment in Japan while downloading Rockman 4.) That remains to be seen, unfortunately, but at least these VC titles coming to the west at all is a good sign.
