Over the weekend, Nintendo released a trailer announcing yet another awesome Virtual Console title for their catalogue. This time around, the Wii U eShop will be home to Mega Man X. The game will be available starting May 30.
I’ll admit it: I’m not exactly what one would call a diehard Mega Man fan. Growing up, I spent tons of time playing games starring the Blue Bomber, but I’d never suggest that his image is one that dominated my time spent as a young gamer.
With that in mind, I will say that Mega Man X stands as my favorite game in the entire franchise. I might be in the minority with that opinion, but I absolutely adore this game, its look, its soundtrack, its weaponry and its difficulty. It’s one of Capcom’s best efforts, in my opinion.
I’ll definitely be snagging it when it comes to the Wii U. I still have my SNES cartridge, but this is one game that I know I’ll play entirely off of the TV and on the Wii U’s GamePad.
