Wily Wars Not Included On SEGA's "New" Genesis Console
Yes, Mega Man: The Wily Wars is still coming preloaded on SEGA's Ultimate Portable Game Player. Now worries there. However, for those of you wondering if the game would be included on the portable's home console counterpart, the "new" Sega Genesis Classic Game Console, well, I've got some not-so-great news.
AtGames’ website uploaded a PDF version of the console's user manual which also includes the complete list of games included. There's no Wily Wars. Kind of a bummer, but there is some good news: you can hook up the portable system to your TV. It's been confirmed to support video-out via an AV cable (sold separately, mind you).
So all in all, if you've been on the fence about which system to get, you're better off with the portable. It's got The Wily Wars. First time you can buy it in the U.S legitimately since good 'ol 1995. The Ultimate Portable Game Player will set you back $60-- on sale now.

I just want to know if they've fixed the Wily Towers being inaccessible problem that the original release suffered from.ReplyDelete
Well that sucks.ReplyDelete
That was an emulator-only glitch. Apparently, the US Sega Channel version of The Wily Wars worked just as well as the European or Japanese cartridge releases.
That's not a problem from the original release, that's a problem with the emulation. Which means the problem will almost certainly be in place here as well.
If it's on the portable, then I guess emulation issues weren't the problem?
It depends on the quality of emulation being done, and the company producing this doesn't have a great track record. Wouldn't hold out on it working.
Further proof that Capcom hates Mega Man? I think so.ReplyDelete
Oh come on, I honestly do not think Capcom is to blame for this.ReplyDelete
I want it on Wii Virtual Console, please ?! I know that it is available for emulators but...ReplyDelete
Its like, such a taboo thing to have anything Megaman on a home console now a days lol.ReplyDelete
From what I read, this new console can play Japanese and European games (no word if that's just because the cartridge bay is big enough or if there is no lock-out), but I did read that the system has trouble writing to the save-files on cartridges that support them, which is pretty sucky.ReplyDelete
Not sure if the portable unit has that trouble or not (or if it can even support cartridges)?
