Nintendo Announces Release Schedule for Mega May

Nintendo and Capcom have joined forces once again to bring six Game Boy Mega Man titles to 3DS Virtual Console throughout the month of May for what Nintendo is calling “Mega May“. The first, Mega Man Xtreme, is available today, but the other five will be released in the following fashion:

  • Mega Man II – May 8
  • Mega Man III – May 8
  • Mega Man IV – May 15
  • Mega Man V – May 22
  • Mega Man Xtreme 2 – May 29

Mega Man is a new character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games on 3DS and Wii U, so this is a terrific chance for new and old fans to revisit some of the hero’s older adventures. Check out the trailer for Mega Man Xtreme below, and don’t forget you can already find several classic NES Mega Man games on the 3DS Virtual Console.
