There's been a minor change in plans concerning the release date of Mega Man Dual Pack, a budget bundling of Mega Man Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X. Originally due for an early September release, GameStop has revised the product's launch to September 16.
No reason for the delay was divulged. However, it is the hopes of some fans the delay will provide Capcom extra time to include a bonus soundtrack, a goodie that can be found in Dual Pack's Japanese counterpart, the Rockman Rockman/Irregular Hunter X Value Pack. Pure speculation, I'm afraid.
According to my go-to GameStop correspondent Johnathan, there's been no change in the SKU itself. Two UMDs inside, that's it. John is under the impression Capcom is merely using the extra time to ramp up stock to meet "an unexpected demand." It would seem Dual Pack is exceeding sales projections... certainly good news.
If you've yet to play Powered Up or Maverick Hunter X, you can't go wrong with picking up Dual Pack. Pre-orders are available now.
