With retro gaming being the hot topic of the day, the folks at Capcom and iam8bit have announced that its Mega Man 30th Anniversary collectible cartridges are ready for shipping. These limited edition packages include an NES cartridge for Mega Man 2 and a Super NES cartridge for Mega Man X.

Both of the 30th Anniversary cartridges are fully playable on their respective platforms, built with the original game code, for anyone looking to dust off their old NES and Super NES consoles. Each cartridge only has 8,500 units available, with 1,000 of those being a special Glow-in-the-Dark Blue. There is no option for selecting color, so the Glow-in-the-Dark Blue editions will be randomly issued.

Retailing for $100, these are clearly recommended for hardcore collectors only. Each package will also come with premium instruction booklets and "retro pack-in surprises." For more information, visit the iam8bit listings for Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
