Amid all the craziness going on at E3 today, Capcom announced tons of new Virtual Console titles that will be headed to the Wii U. This update will please Mega Man fans most of all as about a dozen different games from that franchise are making the trip to the Virtual Console store (my personal favorite of the crop being Mega Man Battle Network).

Here’s the full list of titles you can expect, separated by region:

North America

  • Breath of Fire (Wii U)
  • Demon’s Crest (Wii U)
  • Gargoyle’s Quest II (3DS, Wii U)
  • Mega Man 5 (Wii U)
  • Mega Man 6 (Wii U)
  • Mega Man 7 (Wii U)
  • Mega Man X3 (Wii U)
  • Mega Man Zero (Wii U)
  • Mega Man Battle Network (Wii U)
  • Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (Wii U)
  • Mighty Final Fight (3DS, Wii U)
  • Street Fighter 2010 (3DS, Wii U)

Europe

  • Breath of Fire (Wii U)
  • Demon’s Crest (Wii U)
  • Gargoyle’s Quest II (Wii U)

Phew, that’s a lot. Capcom is aiming for summer launches for all these, with the most pinpointed date being “August.” Pricing and more detailed availability information will have to wait a while yet, but it’s nice to be able to see what’s coming well ahead of time (what, with all those pennies needing to be saved up and all).
