Iam8bit and Capcom are collaborating on two 30th anniversary Mega Man cartridges

30th anniversary Mega Man cartridges for NES & SNES
While quite expensive, these Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X anniversary cartridges look great!
These two packages look really nice and Iam8bit always deliver a quality product. Each game comes on a custom cartridge, with a dual-fold box and manual. For a fleeting moment, I thought I could get both games for $100, but this was not the case. At $100 for each game, they are priced out of my range.

However, they have an interesting lottery system in the mix. Each game is limited to 8,500 units, but 1,000 are translucent glow-in-the-dark cartridges. These unique carts are blindly packaged and randomly sent out. This translates into a 1-in-8 chance of receiving the special cart. While that may not offset the cost of these games, it's a nifty way to sweeten the deal.
