North American players who want to play Mega Man 7 won’t have to track down expensive copies of the SNES cartridge, since the game’s now available on the Virtual Console. The game’s now available in the eShop, Nintendo announced in a recent livestream.
Mega Man 7 is the first and only title in the main series to come out for a 16-bit console. The classic platformer received average reviews for feeling too similar to previous games in the series. Before this release, the only way to play the game was on the SNES or on the PS2, Xbox and GameCube, since Mega Man 7 was included in the Mega Man Anniversary Collection.
