Five Rare Mega Man Games, One Cartridge

Ebay sellers begin sobbing due to loss of massive profit.

While searching through Capcom's American online store for information on the Mega Man Anniversary Collection for the GameCube, I stumbled across another Mega Man game -- one that has not yet been officially announced by Capcom, yet is on their store. The game, Mega Man Mania, is a Game Boy Advance compilation cartridge in honour of Mega Man's 15th anniversary. While not much is known about the cartridge, the following information is on the game's page:

  • Mega Man I to V for the Game Boy will be available on the cart. Mega Man IV and V in particular are very difficult to come by on Ebay because of their scarcity, and are highly sought after.

  • All five games will be colourized for the Game Boy Advance - while they will still obtain their original sprites and backgrounds, they will all be in glorious colour. A welcome sight for those of us who've spent ten years with Mega Man in black and white.

  • All games will keep their resolution of the original Game Boy, but will be bordered in a similar fashion to Game Boy Advance games on the Game Boy Player.

  • The game will feature unlockable artwork as you progress through the game.

    No word on a battery save, but for goodness sake let's hope so. I can't imagine what devious password system Capcom would devise for a game this complex. Let's hope that my Mega Man skills have improved, too -- I could only ever finish Mega Man II. In Mega Man I, I could never beat Enker.
