Mega Man X (SNES) Virtual Console and Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge (GB) for the 3DS Virtual Console are both on sale right now on the Nintendo eShop. Each title is only $2 for two days only, beginning yesterday and ending today on December 18 at 8:59 PST/13:59 EST. Mega Man X is an SNES title, so this means it will be available at one-fourth of its regular price during this sale. Does this entice you to make a purchase, or is the title already in your library? Let us know in the comments below! local_offer deals eShop Mega Man X Nintendo virtual console wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when Eduardo I hope Capcom is making an all new Maga man for wii u and this is part of a marketing hype. Wighead I love megaman X and at 2$, why would I resist temptation? Rinslowe Unless you’re a priest…. And even so, this is a video game we’re talking about here. So no, you probably shouldn’t resist… Zuxs13 I have been telling Nintendo in every survey for every game I buy in the VC they need to do sales from time to time and they have finally started doing them. I will pick this title up for sure for $2, worth it. Rinslowe I think it’s very possible they heard you. You particularly. You changed all this for the better. You. And you alone. Thank You! You should probably take advantage of this being about you and get yourself a copy of this awesome game. You legend, you! 😛 Zuxs13 I never said it was me that changed their mind nor was I implying that. I was simply saying this is something that i have been asking for and I am now excited it is finally happening. Now if they would just listen to all the people asking them to release some games on it we would all be happy. Rinslowe I wasn’t serious with that one… 😛 Nathan Verbois He meant it only as a joke, hence the ;P Why Disqus hasn’t implemented some form of emoticons to help us set the tone of our comments, I don’t know. Perhaps it’s not very easy, or would bloat the platform. Alex VanderKlipp I’ll start doing that, too Fred Technically didn’t Capcom do this sale? Zuxs13 In this case they probably did, but there was also the recent DK sale and Zelda sale that Nintendo did. I think there was also a Mario Bros sale too but i dont remember I already had all of those games. Fred The DK sale was trash, but I indulged in the Mario and Zelda sales. Javier Smith Mmm… actually I think Nintendo of America is behind this sale as well as the others this month, though I’m sure Capcom had to agree first. Fred Either way they hooked me and I bought it last night Javier Smith We thank you, Zuxs13! Nathan Verbois Yep, I’m picking this up tonight. Mega Man X is awesome! I missed out on Dr. Wily’s Revenge, but I remember it being a solid entry in the series. palomino blue Got my money. Shota megaman x one of the hardest megaman game Eric Cramer Oh dear, have you seen the articles making fun of those who find Mario World and Super Metroid hard? Back in the day, there really wasn’t the benefit of just googling for a walkthrough. Shota exactly! Rinslowe The price is right! Sold. Richard Much like the games in my Steam library, I will buy almost any virtual console game, even if I don’t intend to play it immediately, if it’s offered cheap enough. I’m sure I’m not the only one in that either. I would wager Nintendo would make a lot more money overall if they priced their entire back catalog at these prices. Selling a million copies at $2 is better than a few thousand at $8. Rinslowe Bingo Will447 Really good point. I totally agree. I’m not even a huge fan of MegaMan but I’ll buy it just cause it’s only 2 bucks! Fred I’m with you. I bought every single 30 cent game even though I knew I’d never play Yoshi. I’m not really a mega man fan and I’ll be buying this tonight. Hopefully enough of us buy this to show Nintendo that these prices sell games! Sdudyoy Yeah, I want to buy it, but I probably wont ever play it, my Brother kind of likes Mega man though. Javier Smith I agree with you, Richard. I think they’d sell a lot more VC software if it were cheaper overall. GuardiansFan you are assuming they don’t sell that many copies overall…they probably do make more with the higher prices because there are also people out there who will get certain titles at “full” price. If they offered every game at 2$ you would have people who wouldnt bite until its on sale for 50 cents. Dell Goodman No sale on the EU shop. That sucks, not really experienced any Mega Man games, but not willing to spend £6 bucks on it. Alex VanderKlipp I heard that they’re putting up another $2 SNES game on wednesday, and then again 2 days after. For the holidays. I hope they do Zelda or a fighting game! Fred I hope you’re right Javier Smith Alex, do you remember where you heard that? We’ll credit you for the tip! Alex VanderKlipp Gametrailers: Side Mission. http://www.gametrailers.com/side-mission/67560/new-nintendo-eshop-sale-offers-two-games-for-two-dollars-for-two-days Javier Smith Thanks Alex Eric Cramer Maybe it’ll be Mega Man X2 and X3. RyuNoHadouken YES!!!!!!!!!! now continue to release more games most people have beaten 20 years ago and nothing new and exciting!!!!…thats how you drive an install base!!!! Zuxs13 VC never releases new games, that would defeat the purpose of it. Keep complaining about something that actually isn’t an issue and getting your blood pressure up over nothing. RyuNoHadouken i know numb nutz…i was just being funny Lil J Moore How can you pass up a great deal like this? hahahero Oh HAAAIL YEAH! I almost bought this the other day. Decided against it at the last second and to save the monies for the N.A. release of A Link to the Past. But this, I can not pass up! Fred THANKS FOR LETTING US KNOW. I never played this game. I know what I’m downloading tonight. Javier Smith YOU’RE WELCOME. Seriously, though, it’s our pleasure. Dan Heimbach today is the 17th, so the sale is today and tomorrow…..? Javier Smith Technically, you can still get it tomorrow but only until 8:59 a.m. if you’re in Pacific Standard Time. If you’re on Central or Eastern Standard Time, you have a little more time. Pikachief Today is definitely the first day of the sale. Javier Smith Actually, Pikachief, I’m pretty sure it began yesterday as that is when I bought the the game myself. : ) iamserious SNES VC games should always be this cheap. Marcel Kleine frickin america al the time. give europe some respect Javier Smith Hey Marcel, I’m going to see if we can append to the article that this is for North America only. Sorry about that! leafsfan73 Apparantly, U.S . only. I’m in Canada and it’s still regular price. Needless to say I’m a little pissed. Eric Cramer At least you have the demo for Bravely Default. Although to be fair, America got SMT first. Justin Ordoñez Thank you for this. Will be getting MMX the second I get home tonight. Javier Smith You’re very welcome! Jon I would rather X2 at full price Adrian This is why i check this site every day 😀 Javier Smith Well, we try! Thanks for the comment. blindtiger a lesson in percieved reality: i saw the 2 next to megaman x and got really excited thinking they released the sequel… man i want the rest of the x games. its a great deal though x is one of my favorites Stephen Macneil Not in Canada…? Ugh… leafsfan73 Just went on eShop to buy this, and it’s 7.99? What gives? I’m in Canada. Not on sale here? Today’s the 17th so it should be on sale until tomorrow at 8:59.
