Nintendo’s eShop update might not have a list of big titles this week, but it does have the first of the popular Mega Man Battle Network series released as part of the Game Boy Advance Virtual Console service on the Wii U. We also have a few Wii U and 3DS eShop releases, a price drop, and a new 3DS demo.
Wii U Virtual Console:
Mega Man Battle Network (Game Boy Advance): Help Lan and his NetNavi Mega Man.EXE bust viruses and solve problems in both the digital and physical world in this modern classic RPG. Collect Battle Chips and defeat enemies using a real time deck combat system. $7.99
Also announced is that the whole month of August will have a Mega Man Virtual Console release each Thursday on the Wii U eShop. *UPDATE* Thanks to Capcom’s Brett Elston, we now know these titles are Mega Man 5 (NES), Mega Man 6 (NES), Mega Man X3 (SNES), and Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (GBA). The order of their release is being kept a mystery, but it’ll be cool to get all these classic Mega Man titles in one place.
