How about get Mega Man 6 and Mega Man X3 on the Wii/U Virtual Console first, eh Capcpom?

I hope they get this done. I'll buy every single one of them.

How could they possibly struggle to do so when Japan already has 1-4 on 3DS VC?

Mega Man 5 (Game Boy) would be so much more interesting since that game is rare as hell and completely different from the NES-parent for once!

I just hope these struggles have nothing to do with the Nintendo side of things. Maybe's it's just deciding how to reallocate their resources.

would like to know how they are "struggling" when indie devs are enjoying success already on the eshop with games no one heard of before...

Guess it's good that I never bought the Wii VC versions(since I already have it technically on the AC disc). Still, I don't think I'd pay around what.. 30 bucks for all of them? AC only cost me 20 when it was new, and it had four extra games after MM6.

Honestly, I think I'd rather see MM9 and MM10 on 3DS with reduced prices, and if not reduced price, at least throw on a MightySwitchForce-style 3D effect for good measure.

@zombiedsz This.

Capcom's hardly busy supporting the Wii U, so they have the time...

I'd rather they focus on bringing the handheld titles over first, as I've already played 1-6 to death on every platform available. I've never had a convenient way to play the handheld games, and have always wanted a chance to play Megaman V. Please focus on handheld games for the handheld market, Capcom. I don't want my 3DS VC looking exactly like my Wii VC thanks.

I agree, but I'd like any Mega Man I can get.

Interesting, well I hope they can leap passed those hurdles and get them out. With that said, I won't need those because I already have the Mega Man Collection on GC.

I don't get why they just don't make a modified Mega Man Collection, that not just includes Mega Man 1-8, and the Power Battles 1 & 2, but Mega Man (Game Boy) I-V plus maybe Mega Man 9 and 10 (with all the DLC).

Also, maybe some of the various versions of those games wouldn't hurt, either (Powered Up?). Hell, I've always wanted to play any Mega Man game and use any robot master weapon. It'd be so awesome, for instance, to use Elect Man's Elect Blast in Mega Man 7.

Easy. They'd get more money selling each separately. :wink:
