More Virtual Console goodness comes to the Wii U eShop.
Mega Man X will be released on the Wii U eShop this Thursday, May 30.
This game is one of the best ever. I still have it on SNES and it is still kick ass. edit- megaman X is not megaman 10 tho.
I agree, its a great game. Now, I tried adding Megaman X, but there was only the Iphone tag, and tough I created a new Megaman X tag for Wii U, it never showed up...
already own them all on ps2 collection disc
Yeah, but it doesn't have MiiVerse support or Off TV play like this version has.
Your point is?
Not meaning to sound like an ass, but I think he is trying to say he doesn't need this version because he has it on PS2. That is what I am taking away from his comment. It's a valid comment. I will be buying MegamanX when I get a wiiu forr the gamepad support.
And this has something to do with the Wii U release because???
no and don't care!
That's fine if you don't but lots of people do. The PS2 collection looks like shit on a HD TV.
play it through the ps3 it looks very good
Not as good as this Mega Man X build for the Wii U eShop. Plus no save states or off TV play. Wii U eShop version wins
Awesome. The Wii u virtual console is on fire right now. Its getting so little press but in the last few weeks we have gotten some heavyweight releases. Super Metroid, super Mario world, Mario 2, Kirby super star, super ghouls and ghosts, and now mega man X ( easily my fave MM game). Sure one could argue that these are old blah blah and have been re re re released, but there is whole new generation of gamers that will be able to experience and actually ENJOY these classics with help from miiverse and the restore point system. I really hope companies start digging around and bringing some more obscure titles to the VC. Where the hell is Square with some FF/Secret of/ star ocean games? So many series started on SNES that people have never played. We could also use some game cube VC titles. Are you listening Nintendo?
if gc comes I want luigis mansion and Mario sunshine and i'll be happy. idk. fzero, starfox adventures, and super monkey ball would be great too.
Oh man I remember play Mario sunshine endlessly! Same with star fox adventures, even though most people hated it I enjoyed it. I can't wait till they get the gameboy advance, n64 and GameCube up.
A lot of them games are on the normal Wii's VC. Do they transfer to the wiiu, or do you have to rebuy?
U upgrade the versions for Wii u if u already own them on Wii vc. Its 1.50 for SNES and $1 for nes. Its worth it for gamepad miiverse and restore point implementation.
i'm hoping they run a special this week on mea man like they have Mario and Kirby. maybe a "buy mmx and get 50% off mega man". i'm loving this promos. I wouldn't have gotten Mario 2 if it was for the 50% off. and off screen play on the vc games looks amazing. the touch screen is the perfect size for these games.
Just give Megaman to Nintendo Capcom.......
I would rather Keiji inafune have it back. If not that well a similar type of game like Megaman X. But then again him doing new things and idea is pretty awesome. Funny how soul sacrifice involves a right arm with the ability to make weapons/magic and absorbing enemies for sigils.
I would love for them to do a commercial. Something like everyone loves a classic. Shows classic cars, plays classic movies, Shows classic antiques, then shows classic games on the Wii U.
Virtual Console is the best thing to happen to the wii u yet..
I don't know xbox one is doing fairly well for the wiiu as well.
