Mega Man 5 Hits North American Virtual Console
Ah, but what of Dr. Wily's Revenge? I'm sad to report it's a no-show this week. Despite releasing on the Japanese eShop last week and receiving an official ESRB rating, the Game Boy classic didn't hit the U.S eShop today. Take heart that it is coming, though we can't be certain when.
Now with MM5 out of the way, we've only one classic series title left to complete the Virtual Console NES lineup -- Mega Man 6. Heck, won't be long before we start seeing the likes of Mega Man 7 and maybe even Rockman & Forte hit the Virtual Console. What of RockBoard? Eh, it's possible... but unlike most of the JPN Virtual Console imports, it's pretty heavy on Japanese text. Doubtful Capcom (or Nintendo) will spare the effort to translate it.
Well, you never know. We'll keep an eye out.
