Capcom Announces Mega Man Legacy Collection

Capcom Announces Mega Man Legacy Collection

Just in time to compete with Mighty No. 9 (which is out in September), Capcom is releasing a compilation pack called Mega Man Legacy Collection, to be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC within the next few months (with a 3DS release coming later on).

The collection will only come with the first six Mega Man games -- sorry, Mega Man X fans! -- and will include a "Challenge Mode" that's unique to this version. From Capcom:

Mega Man Legacy Collection is a celebration of the 8-bit history of Capcom's iconic Blue Bomber. 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.

So Capcom does remember that Mega Man exists.

    I am all for some awesomeness Mega Man gaming, but this looks worse than the anniversary collection they released on the PS2. Now if this included all NES< SNES, and PS era games including Mega Man Legends then I would be super excited. Right now it seems more like a cheap gimmick to try and steal sales from Mighty No. 9

    This feels like a bit of a knee-jerk from Mighty No. 9, but hey, Mega Man is Mega Man.

    Yep. Capcom putting in the bare minimum amount of effort to make a quick sale. This is lame. The PS2 and GameCube had a better collection than this, and all of the first 6 games are already able to be purchased on WiiU and 3DS anyway.

      Haha, was just thinking "...only six? The Cube collection had all of them!"

      But yeah, that trailer was pretty crap.

        Not only that the GC/PS2 Collections had *other* games like Battle & Chase and the Power Fighter games!

    i wonder what the Capcom and Konami of the 90's would think about their current version?? probably destroy themselves to prevent this outcome.

    What's their problem with Mega Man X, seriously?! I grew with both and it was much better! It's criminal to cut nostalgia off at the nes, stuff the early ones.

    @ Zweetmike: At least the X fans got Maverick Hunter X on the PSP (yes, it's sad that it was only released on a handheld and not on consoles, despite X7 and X8 both being released on the PS2) - all the classic series ended up with in 3D was Megaman Cutesied Up on the exact same handheld, which isn't even the original game, but a spinoff which plays nothing like the original versions, even in old style mode for that matter.

    It's a shame they can't/won't remake the games in a similar fashion to Maverick Hunter X (3D engine and sprites with 2D gameplay). Why is it always the NES/Famicom versions over and over and over again? Even if they are now made from scratch in a retreaux 1080p game engine rather than simply using NES ROMs in an emulator... They could have at least used the graphics style of Megaman 7 or 8 if it wasn't to be 3D. The 8-bit style is the reason I completely ignored the existence of 9 and 10 (also, the lack of a physical release on disc was another reason - not to mention the fact they completely missed/skipped the PC market).
