Well, that certainly took long enough. Mega Man X is finally being released in Europe on the Wii Virtual Console, nearly a whole year after its North American and Japanese release in the Spring of 2011.
The Super Nintendo classic is slated to blast onto the service sometime in March, according to a release schedule from Nintendo of Europe. I expect we'll here confirmation of a specific day soon as more information trickles out. The game is anticipated to run you 800 Wii Points.
All in all, this is great news for our friends in Europe. Hopefully, Mega Man X2 isn't too far off... but then again, we're still waiting for that one here in the states. I'll be keeping an ear out, of course.
