Mega Man: The Wily Wars was only released via the Sega Channel in the North America so up until now there wasn’t a legal way to actually play the game unless you planned to drop quite a bit of money on either a European or Japanese Mega Drive cart, that was until only recently.
Next month, Sega will release the Sega Genesis Mini which include Mega Man: The Wily Wars along with 41 other titles but for those who want to own a physical cartridge, there is some great news revealed by Retro-Bit.
