Capcom has recently announced that they've decided to bring back a popular little blue man, that you may be familiar with, who goes by the name Mega Man. They're calling this enhanced collection the Mega Man Legacy Collection
. The first six games in the Mega Man
franchise will be included and are said to be redone in 1080p with modern bonuses. New challenges and a visual museum will also be included that will feature artist drawings and Mega Man history.
Take a look at the announcement trailer and feel free to reminisce of a simpler time in gaming.
Here are some additional notes about the upcoming release straight from the developer:
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
Also included, are some in-game screenshots and original concept art that you'll have access to view in the game as well.
Capcom has also confirmed there will be a playable demo at E3 next week. Of course, if you can't catch the event and new information becomes available, we will bring you the story. Mega Man Legacy Collection
is expected to be released on Xbox One this summer. Thanks to everyone that sent in this story to us.
