You can play a Mega Man game on 3DS this week. Admittedly it might be a 25 year old Mega Man game but it's a Mega Man game nonetheless. Yes, the original Mega Man NES game is coming to the 3DS eShop this week. It will be joined in the eShop by DSi game 18th Gate while World Heroes Perfect is this week's Wii download. We can also expect 20 new levels for Mutant Mudds.
We'll begin with Mega Man (3DS, Capcom: £4.49). First released for NES in December 1987, it was the first in a platform series that spawned nine sequels and numerous spin-offs. In this challenging platformer you play as the Man himself. Well, he's not a man but a super-robot created by the genius Dr. Light and it's up to him to make it through ten tricky stages and beat the Robot Masters designed by the evil Dr. Wily. You have to beat each stage boss in order to help Mega Man use his weapon.
In 18th Gate (DSi or 3DS, Circle Entertainment: £4.50) you play as three heroes as they battle through a dungeon looking for hidden treasures. The 18 areas of this dungeon are packed with random enemies, traps and hidden paths.
Finally, we have World Heroes Perfect (Wii, D4 Enterprise: 900 Points) the fourth fighting game in the series which was originally released in 1995. It sees 16 figures from history fighting for the title of 'World's Strongest'. It was the first game in the series to feature the Hero Gauge, Extra Attacks and Guard Breaker Attacks.
As for the Mutant Mudds extra levels, they are available for free to anyone who has already downloaded the game but, according to creator Jools Watsham, you'll need to complete the game to access these levels. Here's a trailer.
