Mega Man Legacy Collection revealed, to be playable at E3

With only one week left till the biggest show in gaming, E3, several companies have started to reveal what they will be showing off. One of those companies is “fan favorite” Capcom. While there is no showing of the new Monster Hunter, a localized version of Dragons Dogma Online or of Deep Down, Capcom still has a few tricks up their sleeves, starting with the Blue Bomber, Mega Man.


Every few years or so Capcom always releases a Mega Man compilation. With the Blue Bomber’s 30th anniversary coming up in two years, I’m guessing they decided that it was time once again to bring out all the classic NES Mega Man games into one package. This is the Mega Man Legacy Collection.



This is a collection of the first six Mega Man games that came out for the NES back in the day. In this collection, fans will find the following new features that have been added in:

  • 8-bit style with HD flair– The games retain their retro 8-bit style with an added HD finish, giving a crisp, clean look to the charming, classic sprites.
  • Challenge remix mode for new and veteran players- The robust new Challenge Mode remixes gameplay from all six games for a new type of challenge. It provides both increasingly difficult trials for experienced players and also teaches newcomers to become familiar with the style of the game sand tackle some of the trickier areas.
  • Museum of the era- The Museum Mode features a massive repository of history and art collected from the era of the games in this collection. Take a look back at the history of Mega Man with loads of information, high-res art, concept pieces, sketches and more in the Museum.
  • Developed with an all new engine- Using the newly developed Eclipse Engine, Capcom and Digital Eclipse are able to archive these six pieces of video game history with faithful reproductions of the originals for a new generation of gamers.
  • Leaderboards and video replays- Fans will be able to watch video replays of the top players on the leaderboards, showcasing a whole new generation of Mega Man talent!


The Mega Man Legacy Collection will be available Summer 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Winter 2015 for the 3DS digitally for $14.99. Capcom will also be demoing the game at E3 next week along side other games.
