Capcom has announced that it will bring its entire collection of 8-bit Mega Man games to Android. Mega Man 1 through to Mega Man 6 will be launched in Japan on January 6, however there’s no news on whether Capcom will give them a wider release.

Mega Man is a platform action game notorious for its difficulty. Players take control of the title character, known as Rockman in Japan, and must blast their way through side-scrolling levels against a number of enemies and bosses.

Based on the screenshot posted with Capcom’s announcement (seen above), it appears that Mega Man for Android will retain the 4:3 aspect ratio of the original series and house the controls on the unused sides of the touchscreen display. Capcom didn’t reveal a price structure for the titles.

In other gaming news, Nintendo recently released Super Mario Run on mobile – its first Super Mario title to be developed from the ground up for smartphones. It was released on iOS yesterday and will come to Android sometime in the future.
