press release put out by Nintendo this morning, Mega Man X is slated to release on the North American Virtual Console in just a few short hours from this posting. As with all Super Nintendo titles, MMX will run you 800 Wii Points and supports play with either the Classic Controller or GameCube controller.
Unfortunately, there is still no word on a European release. I imagine that, having released in Japan just a few short weeks ago and hitting the U.S today, an EU version shouldn't be too far off from now.
In another bit on Virtual Console news, it appears Mega Man 5 might be just around the corner. The ESRB has rated Mega Man 5 for Wii within the last 24 hours; a clear indication the game is being prepped for a Virtual Console release in North America. No word on Japan or Europe at this time, but we should that news should trickle out in the near future.
