Get ready to join Mega Man X on an exhilarating robot busting fast-paced action adventure in the classic Mega Man X series. Mega Man X Legacy Collection (includes X1-X4) and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 (includes X5-X8) bring all eight games from the futuristic X series to current platforms with a range of all-new features. Both collections are now available digitally across Europe on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. Both collections will see Mega Man X and friends rise up against deadly hordes of adversaries known as Mavericks as they try to restore peace to a post-apocalyptic world!
The Mega Man X series powered up the blue bomber and introduced several new mechanics to the classic Mega Man formula including powerful armour upgrades, wall-jumping and dashing. In addition to this, both collections contain a series of modern enhancements and exclusive features for new and long-time fans alike:
- X Challenge Mode – Brand new multi-boss challenge mode complete with three difficulty options and online leaderboards.
- Rookie Hunter Mode – An all-new easy mode turning down the difficulty for newcomers.
- Improved visuals and options – Three visual filters to enjoy including a retro CRT simulation filter, a smooth filter for cleaner sprites or the choice to enjoy the original graphics scaled to modern screens.
- Museum of the era – Step back in time and explore the rich history of the Mega Man X series! The museum contains a huge collection of archived art, collectible merchandise, historical trailers and in-game music from each title. Also included is The Day of Σ, an animated short film exploring the beginnings of Sigma’s rebellion.
I’ve never played any of the Mega Man games but I have to say there is a wonderful sense of playfulness in this trailer. The animation is crisp, the gameplay looks thrilling, and even I know about the iconic characters in it. All and all it looks fantastic.
