Vote for Which Mega Man Title Will Hit the 3DS’ Virtual Console First
Capcom’s Blue Bomber is having his portable classics ported over to Nintendo 3DS, and it’s up to you to decide which title will be the first to ride the Rush Jets.
At Capcom-Unity, Capcom has posted a public poll for fans to answer in regards to help decide which of six handheld Mega Man titles of old will be the first to arrive on the Nintendo 3DS’ Virtual Console. With Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge being the first original Game Boy Mega Man title ported over to the Virtual Console, Capcom has given us Mega Man II, III, IV and V for Game Boy as potential choices to be next.
Capcom has also included Mega Man Xtreme and Xtreme 2 as the two other choices on the poll. Mega Man Xtreme were pseudo-sequels to both Mega Man X and Mega Man X2 and were released on Game Boy Color. The first Xtreme title was pretty much a Game Boy Color port of Mega Man X with a few narrative differences, but Xtreme 2 proved to be much different from X2, allowing you to play as Zero.
The poll will close on April 14 and the winner of the poll will arrive on the 3DS Virtual Console on May 1. Throughout the month of “Mega May,” each of the remaining titles on the poll will continue to be released each Thursday after the winner debuts. Our choice would have to be Mega Man V for trading out Rock’s Mega Buster for the Mega Arm weapon and its unique lack of Dr. Wily as the game’s main villain.
