Following the recently announced Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster, Capcom has confirmed that a new Mega Man collection is coming out aptly titled Mega Man Legacy Collection. This collection includes the original 8-bit Mega Man games–Mega Man to Mega Man 6–from the NES, and includes the following features:
- Remastered in 1080p HD with the new Eclipse Engine.
- Challenge mode, a new mode that changes up the original games
- Museum mode, a feature that showcases artwork and sketches from the games, along with an overview of the series.
- Leaderboards – leaderboards that include a video replay feature to show case the top players.
This is actually the 2nd compilation of classic Mega Man games, after the Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and Xbox, though this collection lacks Mega Man 7 and Mega Man 8 along with some of that compilation’s extra content. The Legacy Collection is also another HD remaster in Capcom’s queue of HD remasters, after last year’s Resident Evil Remaster, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition and recently Resident Evil 0 Remaster; all these games are a part of their plan to focus on remasters of older games after Resident Evil Remaster‘s financial and critical success.
Mega Man Legacy Collection is set to come out this summer, and will be shown at this year’s E3 along with Resident Evil 0 Remaster, and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, which comes out this month, at Capcom’s booth, along with other announced games. The collection will be released digitally in North America on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and later the Nintendo 3DS which is set to come at a later time in this winter; there is no news about a Wii U port, though the games are available on the Wii U’s Virtual Console as well.
