Hopefully enough to show Capcom there is still interest in the brand.
Mega Man Legacy Collection has become the first game in the Mega Man series to cross 1 million units sold in 15 years. Capcom’s financial data, with a listing of all of their platinum sellers, notes that the Legacy Collection has sold over a million copies across all the SKUs.
While Legacy Collection is technically a ROM compilation of older games, and has been available across a whole range of systems over a few years now, this is still a notable milestone, because it indicates to Capcom, hopefully, that there is some interest in the Mega Man brand. Mega Man 11 came out earlier this year, and was great, and hopefully the success for this collection means we can see more along those lines from Capcom—maybe even DLC for Mega Man 11, which earlier the developers said that they aren’t quite sure about working on. That, or a Mega Man 12 along the same lines as 11 would be great, too.
Mega Man Legacy Collection is available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Mega Man 11 is on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
