Mega Man 5 Lands on Nintendo 3DS eShop

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?


  1. Still waiting for 6, 7 and X3... (SIGH) The most I can hope for now is dual releases on both Wii and Wii U.

  2. They really ought to just release ROM conversions of Megaman II-V GB for 3DS and ditch that whole "we lost the source code" BS.

    The right game hacker could make a 3DS version of Megaman V over a weekend. I'm sure Capcom USA could do the same.

  3. 5 is one of the games I haven't played much of. I might have to pick this one up.

  4. How about Megaman X from the Psp?

  5. Yeah, 5 is great. Would play again.

    I'm honestly wondering if we'll get a Wii version when 6 comes out. Seems odd to not complete the NES series.

  7. Well if they release 6 here in Europe on e-shop it'll be the 1st legit release it's ever had over here..

    @Prof. Megaman when have Capcom said that they've lost the source code for GB MM2-V?? I really want to see MMV on e-shop at some point.

    I still have to ask the question though.. when are Capcom just going to release the Anniversary collections as a PS2 classic etc it'd make life easier playing all the titles on one disc/download..

  8. @Your friendly, Neighborhood Mr.X...

    Why dont you ask about a Wii version at Capcom of USA forum ? I wonder too. Sighing.

  9. @Anon:

    That's their official excuse for not releasing Megaman Mania (a.k.a. Megaman Anniversary Collection) for Gameboy Advance in 2004.


  10. @Prof. Megaman

    Same Anon from before.. Odd that I remember the GB collection being cancelled although it does say in the article that the source code loss was a "rumour" ...

    I found it strange since both Brelston & Gregaman on Unity were saying that they would love to see MMV on e-shop on a live stream not that long ago...

  11. I'm pretty sure that Capcom actually has no say in deciding what goes into the eShop or not. It's Nintendo's decision, so shouldn't it also be their decision in deciding whether the GB games go in as well?
