MegaMan comes to the Virtual Console Monday *UPDATED*

Looks like Wii owners are getting a nice treat this Monday! From Capcom Unity:

"To prepare all you Mega Man fans for the release of Mega Man 9 in September, we're going to offer you the opportunity to play the game that started it all. The orginal Mega Man game returns on the Virtual Console this Monday, August 4, 2008. Yes, that's right. Brush up on your old school skills and prepare for some cool contests we have in store. We also plan to re-release Mega Man 2 in early September as well. "

Can I get a yes?

UPDATE: I'm sure most of you have already noticed the lack of MegaMan on the VC. Myself nor anyone else have no idea what happened, but check back periodically for updates. Maybe Capcom or Nintendo will issue some sort of statement.

  1. I'm going to use my Wii points to get this on Monday. I know that people may say not to and get the Anniversary Collection, except that the AC version filtered the graphics to blurriness, distorted pixels and actually has horrible screen cropping.

  2. @solarman: Funny, I never had that problem with Gamecube AC. Or with the controls.

    I'll say YES for MM VC.

  3. Samurai Shodown II and Ys Book I+II are also confirmed for tomorrow so either we're getting 3 VC games tomorrow (which hasn't happened in months) or someone is lying.

  6. I want to be more excited for this, and it's nice that Nintendo is *finally* releasing something good quality for the VC this year.

    But already owning the Anniversary Collection pretty much makes any release of MM1-7 on VC superfluous (for me personally).

    What I *really* want to see on VC is The Wily Wars!

  7. Hopefully Nintendo goes along and doesn't randomly switch release dates. :P

  10. "Too bad!" - from Super Mario Sunshine. ;)
    I wouldn't be surprised if Capcom of America puts the MegaMan9 release on hold against the Japan release, hehehehe :P
