Capcom may not be too keen on releasing actual new Mega Man games, but as the last few weeks have shown, they have absolutely no issues exploiting the massive amounts of nostalgia that fans harbor for the series by re-releasing older games. And so, there is the Mega Man Legacy Collection.
Developed by Digital Eclipse, Mega Man Legacy Collection purports to be a celebration of the 8 bit glory days of Capcoms mascot, featuring the original six Mega Man games, all in one package. It will be releasing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC later this Summer, while Nintendo’s 3DS will get it in the winter. Hilariously enough, the PS Vita and Wii U don’t get the collection at all, as much as that does not make sense.
Mega Man Legacy Collection will cost only $15, and it will be available on all platforms as a digital download (no retail release is planned). It will feature 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.
