Nostalgia fans rejoice the legacy continues, as Capcom today announced Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, a collection of the iconic Blue Bomber’s four most recent classic side-scrolling adventures, complete with several all-new features. A follow-up to Mega Man Legacy Collection, which contained the series’ original 8-bit titles, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 spans the evolution and retro revolution of the series. This collection will be available digitally for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC starting 8th August, 2017.
A compilation of four timeless adventures in one package, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 features the most recent entries in the classic side-scrolling series. The collection also includes a Museum jam-packed with history and production art, challenge remix stages for long-time fans, and first-timer friendly options like added armour and checkpoint saves for easy reload. Journey through the later entries in the series with these four titles: Mega Man 7 introduced mysterious rival Bass and his companion Treble, while Mega Man 8 featured the series’ first impressively animated and fully voiced cutscenes; Mega Man 9 marked the series’ return to its roots with 8-bit visuals, music, and gameplay; Mega Man 10 retained these features and included three playable character options.
This looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and the continued success of these Mega Man collections could lead to an actual Mega Man sequel or reboot for the much-beloved series.
