Mega May continues in the House of Nintendo as both Mega Man II and Mega Man III make their way to the 3DS Virtual Console. A new game starring the Denpa Men also arrives this week, alongside some discounts from the folks at Joindots.
While the Wii U is getting all of the Game Boy Advance love these days, at least the 3DS crowd now has some new Mega Man games to lord over those who prefer home consoles. Last week, Mega May kicked off with the release of the Game Boy Color title, Mega Man Xtreme. And while the Wii U is scheduled to get its own crop of games featuring the Blue Bomber sometime time this month, itís all about the 3DS this week with the launch of Mega Man II and III.
Everything you remember about classic Mega Man action remains intact for these straight ports of the NES titles, including the fantastic soundtrack, memorable boss fights and tough-as-nails difficulty. As always, Mega Man must first overthrow a collection of Robot Masters waiting at the end of their own themed worlds before making his way to the evil Dr. Wily. Each victory will bring you one step closer to saving the world as Mega Man absorbs the powers of his fallen enemies, giving him extrordinary new weapons in two of his greatest adventures ever told. Look for Mega Man II and Mega Man III to hit the Virtual Console on 3DS this week.
The classic-themed RPG, Grinsia, also arrives on the Nintendo eShop for the 3DS, taking gamers back to a simpler time in games where cutting edge graphics and systems stacked on systems werenít needed to tell an engaging story. Made to look like a 16-bit romp, Grinsia is the classic tale of a group of youngsters who are inadvertently pulled into a plot to save the world.
Denpa Men 3 also hits the 3DS this week, offering yet another chapter in the augmented-reality RPG series where players are tasked with catching a bunch of Denpa Men, then sending them on adventures to clear dungeons and earn rewards. Itís joined by a collection of other titles, including Parking Star 3D, Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends, Jewel Match, Jewel Quest 4 Heritage and Sokomania 2: Cool Job.
Things are quite a bit lighter this week for the Wii U, as Wario Land 4 for the Virtual Console is the only new game slated to launch on Nintendoís home console.
