Capcom has announced a new Mega Man collection, Mega Man Legacy. This new collection will contain the first six Mega Man games and other bonus content.
The bonus content includes concept art, bonus art and a new challenge mode. This challenge mode will be available in all six games. There will also be a museum mode which will allow Mega Man fans to explore the history of the beloved series. Mega Man Legacy Collection will also contain a Database mode which sounds like a Mega Man wiki… sort of.
Here is some info from Capcom’s blog.
Leaderboards, challenges, replays: Challenge Mode takes moments from each title and weaves them into a series of, well, challenges! So things like ‘can you do these six areas strung together with one life bar’ or ‘try fighting all six Mega Man 1 bosses in a row.’ And to keep the quest for the best time alive, the top performers in each Challenge will have their replay data uploaded and viewable to everyone! There will be many challenges to vex seasoned players AND help train newcomers in the ways of the Blue Bomber.
Database: Each Mega Man game will have a database that includes enemy lists. From here you can read details about certain enemies and hop directly to them for a practice session. For example, say you’re tired of playing all the way to Quick Man just to lose over and over. With the database, you can hop directly to him and practice that buster run until you get it down to a science. Then it’s off to the full game for the real deal!
Museum: MMLC will sport an exhaustive collection of sketches, art and other visual materials that help put you in that 1987~1992 time period. Part of this game’s goal is the preservation of history, and the folks at Digital Eclipse are scanning items at absurdly high resolutions to make them as clean and clear as possible.
Mega Man Legacy Collection doesn’t have a specific release date yet, but Capcom is saying Summer 2015 for $15. Mega Man Legacy will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Later in the year Capcom will also release a 3DS version.
