    Worried Capcom would be doing nothing for Mega Man's 25th birthday? Turns out Mega Man rarity is finally due out in North America this year. Originally released on the Mega Drive back in 1994 the game consisted of remakes of the original 3 Mega Man games plus a Wily Tower mode exclusive to this game, the game was previously only available in NA through the Sega Channel and has no retail release. The game is due out through a new Genesis handheld which will be avilable on November 13th at $59.99, preorders can be made here
    Couldn't give a monkeys about the handheld but it would be nice to own a legal copy of this game for a change, I'm hoping if Capcom is willing to license this out now, that a Virtual Console release won't be far off​

    See Mega Man fans, Capcom don't hate you. They just strongly dislike you.

    Way to celebrate Megaman's 25th anniversary. It would be simple to put it on a number of digital distribution platforms, but Capcom has to go out of their way to give fans the opposite of what they want.

    Happy 25th, Megaman!

    Wow, seems like everyone is trying to cash in on the portable retro handheld market.

    The Mega Man fanbase is like a battered housewife at this point. They know they're being abused, but just can't bring themselves to leave.

    This has nothing to do with the 25th Anniversary, it's not even mentioned in the original article. Until Capcom say what they're doing (which will probably be less effort than this) then we can't be so quick in posting Mega Man/Capcom troll pics.

    At Games and Blaze are responsible for this, Capcom just sold them the license to put their roms on the device and they would have done this regardless of the anniversary. They've been doing these Sega handhelds for some time now and sadly they're not of the best quality, they're nothing more than roms being played onto a homebrew device. Nothing has been optimised so that the games run smoothly and look as they should.

    Thats all well and good, but I'd much rather play it on a t.v like I did back in my younger years of original megaman gaming...

    that looks a whole lot like the gopher by blaze. it runs an non-updatable version of firecore emulation and has very hit or miss compatibility. i hope the "official" one isn't the same.

    i actually have the one in the attached image. i've been meaning to write a review of it. its a pretty fun little handheld, considering i picked it up new for right around $45. easy to set up, work fairly well, has great battery life, but runs firecore as the emulation. i can't say enough bad things about firecore. =(

    Is this the Megaman gay porno they never released?

    A title like "Willy Wars" seems to constitute some type of sausage swordplay.

    "SD card slot for additional games download (SD card not included)"

    that sounds kind of interesting, can you just download genesis roms and stick them on sd card and play them? sounds kinda wierd they would offer that function

    Doesn't seem weird to me since you could do the same thing right now for free by getting an emulator.
