The first four games in the classic Mega Man series are now available on the Wii U Virtual Console, as well as Mega Man X, the first in the X series which was released on the SNES. They all feature Off-TV Play, Miiverse communities, and restore points, the latter of which will surely come in handy for those who struggle with the difficult retro titles.

The games must be selling well, as Brett Elston of Capcom has now hinted that there will be more of the Blue Bomber on the console in the near future. Here's an excerpt from a recent blog post:

Hope to have additional news regarding classic MM games hitting the Virtual Console soon. We're on a roll with the 3DS and Wii U lineup, and I have a feeling there's more on the way...

The second and third entries in the classic series are widely considered to be the best, and you should definitely consider picking them up if you're looking for something to play. You can watch some gameplay videos here.
