The First NES Mega Man Hitting 3DS VC Next Week

If someone were to tell you back in 1987 that Mega Man would have roughly 50 installments in the series, you probably would’ve looked at them and laughed. Well, 25 years later and more than 50 installments in the series, Mega Man easily became a staple franchise for Capcom. To celebrate the Blue Bomber’s 25th anniversary, Capcom is releasing the original Mega Man that was released on the NES back in December of 1987 on the 3DS eShop.

Mega Man stood out as being the very first game to have a completely non-linear game structure that allowed you to choose which order of levels to tackle. Fans and newcomers alike can experience where the franchise started on their 3DS starting next week, July 18th. Andriasang stated that the game will cost 500 yen, which when converted comes out to roughly $6.00 in the US. The price may be a bit more or a bit less once Nintendo and/or Capcom make a press statement for the game’s release.
