The title of this post says it all. The 1992 NES classic Mega Man 5 has now officially arrived on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America and Europe. You can download it now for just $4.99 and put an end to Proto Man's "evil ambitions once" again.
Next month it's Mega Man 6's turn. I wonder what will become of Mega Man related eShop releases thereafter?

Proto Man's trademark shield has been made into a backpack courtesy of Etsy user Ivana Roso. It's literally one-of-a-kind, so if you've got $60 to spare, snatch it up before it's gone!
Even if it does disappear in the next, oh, hour, it's still worth checking out. Very fine craftsmanship! UPDATE: Sold! But don't fret; you can still admire plenty of pictures. Hit the link below and check it out.
