August will be Mega-May all over again for the 3DS and Wii U

Remember how Capcom released all of the Game Boy and GBC Mega Man titles back in May?  Well according to a post over at Capcom Unity it's time for another month of the blue bomber starting today with the release of Mega Man Battle Network for the 3DS and Wii U's eShop.  If you've never played a Battle Network game, this is definitely one to check out.  It's not your traditional side-scroller like the classic and X games, but it's an interesting take on the franchise...even if the first game's network layout made things confusing (later games in the series made it easier to tell just what part of the net you were in).

But wait, there's more.  Every Thursday in August will see the release of another classic Mega Man game.  The games will be Mega Man 5 (NES), Mega Man 6 (NES...and still not on the Wii yet :D), Mega Man X3, and Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (a spin-off of the Battle Network games).  The order of release will be a mystery, but as long as MM5 is released before MM6, then order really doesn't matter to me.
