Game Boy and Game Gear games return to Japanese 3DS VC

Thought you'd like to know.
After what seemed like an eternally long stretch of nothing but Famicom games, next week will finally see the return of classic portable games to the service.

Coming up are "NazoPuyo" for the Game Gear, a Puyo Puyo single player spinoff where you're given a predetermined stack of blocks and have to fulfill objectives like "remove all the red blocks" by careful use of limited, predetermined stacks of falling blocks... and Rockman World 2/Mega Man II for the Game Boy, the not-particularly-well-regarded second portable Mega Man game, which borrows its boss robots from Mega Man 2 and 3 for the NES.

But at least we're getting something.

As mentioned, the Gameboy Mega Man II tends to be considered the worst game in the series. It's an outsourced mess with bad level design, poor music and generally dull gameplay.

We have a bunch more in Japan, but I believe they're all ones that never got English releases.

Check out Crystal Warriors, though. Fun game.

Now now, Rockman World 3 and 4 are both pretty good. It's just 2 that's awful.

I'm aware of that. That "Oh ****" was for Mega Man on Game Boy finally arriving.

Eh. I'm getting it anyway.

Bad Mega Man is better than no Mega Man.
