Mega Man 2, Mega Man X to be reprinted on cartridge

Posted on May 1, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Capcom and iam8bit are teaming up for new physical versions of Mega Man classics. Mega Man 2, along with Mega Man X, will be reprinted on cartridge later this year.

Both are priced at $100 each and are limited to 8,500 units. They’ll come with deluxe packaging and “premium” instruction booklets, while the cartridge “houses the original game code on a brand new PCB board and are fully playable on NTSC consoles.”

Fans can pick up the Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X 30th Anniversary Classic Cartridge in two colors: a standard opaque light blue and a smaller batch (1,000 of each) of translucent, glow-in-the-dark blue. Cartridges will be “randomly inserted into sealed, unmarked boxes”.

You’ll find the following inside each release:
