Mega Man 2 Headed to Japanese 3DS eShop

Often touted as one of the best games for the NES era, Nintendo announced today that Mega Man 2 is headed for the 3DS eshop.

Mega Man 2 is one of the most revered platformers for the NES, having built a successful formula out of its predecessor and revolutionizing action games at the time. For more on Mega Man 2, click here.
