The website Nintendo Everything has confirmed the release of a new game on the Wii U Virtual Console. That game is “Mega Man X2,” and it was released on January 2, 2014. This game is available for download for the price of $7.99.

“Mega Man X2” was originally released on the Super Nintendo in 1994. The game is the second game in the “Mega Man X” series, which was the first major spinoff of the “Mega Man” franchise. The game plays very similarly to the previous title. The player must control X as he travels through stages, defeating each Maverick (boss) along the way. Defeating each Maverick will unlock a weapon based on their attack type. These weapons are effective against one of the other Mavericks, which will give the player a huge advantage if they defeat the bosses in a certain order. There are also a number of other bosses (other than the final boss, Sigma) that the player must defeat along the way.

This game also features a number of other upgrades that the player can acquire from capsules. These upgrades give the player a number of bonuses, such as the ability to dash in the air and reveal hidden items/paths. The game also features a hidden upgrade similar to the original game’s Hadouken ability. This time, X can perform the Shoryuken, which is also from the “Street Fighter” franchise.
