Mega Man fans rejoice! Looks like Capcom hasn’t forgotten about you, or the Blue Bomber himself. I wasn’t sure we’d see old Megs’ return to the new generation of consoles outside a Super Smash game but I’m glad we will! The Legacy Collection will be released on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC in ‘Summer’ which for us Australians probably means around September, with the 3DS slated for a Winter release a few months later.
I haven’t played much Mega Man before but I have used him quite a bit in Super Smash Bros, although now I won’t really have any excuses and will definitely be picking The Legacy Collection up.
“Featuring faithful reproductions of the series’ origins with the original six Mega Man games, the Legacy Collection will remind long-time fans and introduce newcomers to what made Mega Man such a popular and iconic character. In addition to the six Mega Man games, Mega Man Legacy Collection features new ways to experience the classic games with the Museum Mode and new Challenge Mode. Challenge Mode remixes gameplay segments from all six games, with plenty of scaling difficulty objectives for experienced players to conquer yet serving as a good starting point for new players, too. Museum Mode contains a comprehensive collection of history, high-res art and original concept pieces – a mega treat for any fan of Mega Man and video game history”.
