Mega Man: The Wily Wars is a compilation of remakes of Mega Man, Mega Man 2, and Mega Man 3 — all originally released on the NES. It was published on cartridge for the Japan and PAL regions, but only appeared in North America via the ahead of its time, but ultimately ill-fated Sega Channel online service.
