Fans of Mega Man have something to cheer about. This comes after Capcom announced that it is partnering with iam8bit to release the game’s special edition. These limited edition games are Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X, according to Capcom.
Classic Mega Man Games On NES, SNES Cartridges
Both cartridge games are intended for NES and SNES, respectively. These games are actually collector’s items. If you are an avid fan of the game, you can pre-order these games on iam8bit.com. The expected shipment of these games are slated for September.
However, fans are advised to pre-order the games as soon as possible. This is because Capcom would only release a limited copy of these games. The developer said that only 8, 500 copies would only be shipped for each game.
Regarding the price, the cartridge game is expected to cost at $100 each. What else do you get when buying the game? Capcom said that fans would also be getting a premium instruction booklet in an embossed box. Inside the game’s instruction booklets contained a foreword written by Salvatore Pane, a self-proclaimed Mega Man enthusiast for Mega Man 2 and Jirard Khalil for Mega Man X.
Meanwhile, there’s also speculation that fans would also be getting “retro pack-in surprises” for both the cartridge games. However, iam8bit has yet to confirm this or fans should wait until the games ship-out.
Also, there would be a special “Glow-in-the-Dark Blue” colour for 1, 0000 cartridges in each run. Unluckily, you won’t be able to order this special cart directly. It is assured, however, that the distribution of this blue cart would be done randomly.
