Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X to be re-released on cartridges


Capcom plans to print 8,500 copies of both Mega Man 2 on the NES and Mega Man X on the SNES in order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Mega Man franchise. They will each come with a $100 price tag, and they will be fully playable on NTSC home consoles. The games will be available in two color options: an opaque, light blue, and a translucent, glow-in-the-dark blue, the latter of which will only have 1,000 copies available. 

Here is what will come with the purchase of both games:

Looks like a homebrew cart if you ask me.

I still have two if the original. What a quick cash in.

Should have been Mega Man 5 and Mega Man X3 since those are actually hard to get... Or at least Mega Man 1 since they're going with X1 too

For some reason these cart reproductions leave a bad taste in my mouth. I guess because they look unofficial, and because previous similar reproductions like the street fighter 2 cart didn't even work properly when played on the hardware. Everything about it is too artificial to feel like an honest preservation.

Would love to see MMLC2 and MMXLC2 on a cart.....
