This week (December 17th 2015), North America gets three Virtual Console games for the Wii U: Megaman Zero 4 (GBA), Megaman Battle Network 5: Team Protoman (GBA) and Megaman Battle Network 5: Team Colonel (GBA). These games were released on the Wii U VC in Europe earlier this year.

I partly expected there to be Megaman Virtual Console games for the VC this week, due to the franchise's 28th anniversary on either Thursday or Friday, combined with the fact that we got the first Megaman Zero game last year at the same time (the week of the 27th anniversary of the Megaman franchise).

Incidentally, the regional tradeoff system is indeed at play this week. Europe is apparently getting Mario Tennis 64, New Super Mario Bros. and Ominusha Tactics for their Wii U Virtual Console library. All three of these games were re-released as Virtual Console games earlier this year in North America, and we're getting three of the Megaman games which were released in Europe earlier this year.
