Man nintendo need to link the accounts together between 3ds and wii u and then allow us to transfer the games we've bought on 1 to the other.

The Game Boy games are really good, especially III, IV and V Smilie
The Xtreme games, on the other hand... They really should have waited for the GBA was out before they made these games, the GBC just didn't do the Mega Man X style gameplay very well.

I've heard yeah.

Good thing they made the Zero games to make up for it, here's hoping those will eventually hit VC in some form too.

Mega Man III on the GB was pretty much perfect, my first Mega Man game. Had the charge shot, slide and the levels were pretty similar to the NES counterparts. Really recommended!
