Capcom announced today that Mega Man Legacy Collection will be hitting this summer for Xbox One, PS4, and PC (with the 3DS version coming out by end of year). The Legacy Collection as it is so named, will include Mega Man games 1 – 6 with “added HD flair and extras.” What are these extras? According to the trailer below they include replays and leaderboards as well as a new challenge mode (as if Mega Man games weren’t hard enough!) Mega Man games have been available on the Wii U for a while now through the E-Shop, but it looks like this will be re-releases with some upgrades to the visuals to fit a bigger screen and HD outputs. Most likely, Capcom is releasing this to coincide with the future release of Mighty No. 9 in September, but maybe they’ll see the light of day and give us more Mega Man games. One can only hope, anyways. Check out Capcom’s official words below as well as the trailer after.
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.
