Mega Man Badges Coming to Nintendo Badge Arcade
Just in time for the launch of Mega Man Legacy Collection for Nintendo 3DS, a slew of Mega Man-themed badges are slated to hit Nintendo Badge Arcade later this month, Famitsu reports. Distribution will begin in Japan on Friday, February 26th.
For those not in the know, Badge Arcade is a "free-to-start" application which allows you to decorate your 3DS home menu with badges featuring Nintendo characters and iconography. To my knowledge, Mega Man represents the first 3rd party content offered from Badge Arcade. EDIT: No quite; that honor goes to Monster Hunter (another Capcom property).
Much like the Mega Man 3DS themes shown above (which come bundled with the Collector's Edition), I have no doubt we'll see these outside Japan eventually. We'll keep you posted!
