Nintendo Store Update: Mega Man X hits Virtual Console

New digital offerings include classic Capcom game for nostalgic hub; WiiWare welcomes My Little Baby and demo for Bit.Trip Core; DSiWare adds Go Series Captain Sub, DodoGo! Robo, and Music On: Learning Piano 2.

Nintendo updated its virtual storefront today with a range of new offerings. First out of the gate this week is Mega Man X (800 Wii points, or $8) for the Virtual Console. Originally released in 1994 for the Super NES, gamers can now revisit the 16-bit game via Nintendo's nostalgic download spot.
Mega Man comes back to life via the Virtual Console.

Switching to the WiiWare download hub, Nintendo added one new game and a demo to the spot today. The new game out now is My Little Baby (600 Wii points, or $6), an infant-nurturing game that has players changing, bathing, and feeding their little ones. Additionally, gamers have a range of toys and clothes at their disposal to help keep their infant happy.

The new demo out this week on WiiWare is for Bit.Trip Core. The game puts players in control of an immobile cross-shaped cannon at the center of the playfield. The cannon can shoot a beam in just four directions, and any "bits" crossing it will be destroyed, yielding a suitably old-school gaming sound effect.

On-the-go gamers have three new options today from the DSiWare download spot, the first of which is Go Series Captain Sub (200 DSi points, or $2). The underwater adventure game has players piloting a yellow submarine and manning its extendable claw to grab treasure.

Also out now on DSiWare is DodoGo! Robo (200 DSi points, or $2). From Neko Entertainment, the puzzle title is the third in the series and has players working through levels collecting as many egg icons as possible by manipulating the environment in effective ways.

The last game out now on DSiWare is Music On: Learning Piano 2 (200 DSi points, or $2). The game sports 15 classic songs from such composers as Bach, Tchaikovsky, and Chopin, and it has gamers playing along as the notes cascade by. Players can earn bronze, silver, and gold medals for their performances as well.

@LordelX @M3tr4nk0 Good for both of you but not everyone has it!

I'd get Megaman X, but what's the point? I have the original cartridge, and Megaman X Collection. If they release a Megaman game that hasn't been released here, maybe I'll buy it, but they probably aren't making much money because you can play almost every Megaman and Megaman X game on Wii if you own the compilations.

I might have to download Mega Man X. I don't have the X Collection for my Gamecube, and man, that's a rare game these days....

So much nostalgia.... Megaman is one of my favorite series of all time, hope Keiji Inafune can get the rights to make more or something.

Same, I have the X collection. I just want Nintendo to put Breath of Fire, and not just the second one.

@M3tr4nk0g Exactly. You can get it used for 19.99 at Gamestop and it contains 7 Mega Man X games! Or you can pay $8 for one game. Nintendo, I love you but you are failing lately.

About time Nintendo added a decent game to the VC. Wish they would support the VC more than they have been.

@ CorruptGamerGX You ain't never lying. I was just about to comment on that. Or if you're like me, I have homebrew on my wii with every nes, snes, genesis and gameboy advance games. Also, some N64 games. My neighbor did it for me for 5 bucks. It's awesome! Nostalgia

Hmm... Megaman X for $8 or Megaman X Collection for $10. This seems like a tough choice.

Actually, slickvic1990, that's more of Capcom's doing, not Nintendo's.
