Every Thursday throughout the rest of May, Nintendo's 3DS eShop will list another Mega Man game – four of Mega Man's Game Boy adventures and two of his Game Boy Color titles.

Nintendo says that it is celebrating Mega Man's inclusion into Super Smash Bros. with the release of these six classic Game Boy games. This seems like a late celebration since Mega Man was announced ages ago. But whatever the reason, here's a list of the Mega Man games you can download this month on your 3DS:

  • May 1: Mega Man Xtreme
  • May 8: Mega Man 2, Mega Man 3
  • May 15: Mega Man 4
  • May 22: Mega Man 5
  • May 29: Mega Man Xtreme 2

Our Take
I love Mega Man, but I've never gotten around to playing all the Game Boy titles. This looks like a good opportunity, but five bucks for a black and white Game Boy title seems a little high to me. I wish these were selling these in a eShop collector's set.
