This is not a [Man]drill: Mega Man X and Mega Man 7 launch on Japanese 3DS eShop

For the ‘New 3DS’ of course

It looks like more SNES games are arriving on the New 3DS’ Virtual Console, and that includes Mega Man 7, Mega Man X, Contra III, and Donkey Kong Country 3. The catch? They’re only live in Japan at the moment.

Mega Man X has a sterling reputation among fans, and the general public. It’s widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best Mega Man game, and many have gone as far as to put it in the upper echelon of platformers in general. 7 isn’t as exciting, because while it does offer great locales and some iconic encounters, the sound and visual designs are strange, giving it a less than desirable overall look. It does have that amazing one-on-one fighting game though and it was better than a lot of other platforms at the time.

Either way I would definitely pick up both whenever they hit the western market.
