Mega Man 5 Hits Wii U VC; StreetPass Puzzle Now Available

Capcom and Nintendo are kicking off "Mega August" with the Wii U Virtual Console debut of Mega Man 5. The NES classic will run you $4.99.

What's more, the Mega Man StreetPass puzzle is now available on Nintendo 3DS in both North America and Europe. Simply update your console to firmware version 8.1.0-19 and its yours. From there, go out those Miis for panels!

"Mega August" continues next week with a randomly selected Mega Man game. Again, those are Mega Man 6, Mega Man X3 and Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge.

Stay tuned!


  1. Well.... looks like I'm gonna waste ANOTHER 200 coins on the 3DS, AND another uncompleted pink puzzle set to my collection, just to complete the Blue puzzle parts. Lot of the time, I have reason to believe the blue blue pieces generated are NOT entirely 100% random. They tend to give you pieces you already have more often than new pieces, which is a shame. Well anyway, I don't go out much, so I don't have all the pink pieces of a lot o the frames I've had throughout the years.

    Considering the 3DS has had ALL the Mega Man titles for some time now, its about TIME the Wii U virtual console got the REST of the NES titles of Mega Man. :)

  2. I do believe this is the first 3rd party puzzle swap in America and Europe, as I don't think we've gotten the Monster Hunter one yet.

    Not that that actually means anything though.
