Few people in the States may have heard of Mega Man: The Wily Wars. Wily Wars is a compilation à la Super Mario All-Stars featuring 16-bit upgrades of Mega Man, Mega Man 2, and Mega Man 3, with an unlockable 3-boss game called Wily Tower after you beat the first three games. The reason so few people here may have heard of it is simple: it was only released on Sega Channel, Sega's short-lived download network for the Genesis. While the rest of the world enjoyed a full retail cartridge release of the game, we were limited access only through a somewhat expensive paid service. But Wily Wars lives on with the likes of importing, reproduction, emulation, and those weird At Games licensed systems. But is it worth it to find yourself a copy? Find out after the jump!
