Mega Man Legacy is a collection of the Blue Bomber’s first 6 original NES titles and will set players back $14.99. Rather than just being a rehash of Mega Man’s first 6 games, Capcom has decided to give these titles a fresh coat of paint by making them HD friendly. Mega Man Legacy also boasts a few new gameplay modes including a Challenge Mode which mixes elements of different games together for a unique experience that is very reminiscent of something like an NES Remix.

On top of the updated visuals and new modes, players will be treated to a slew of bonus content ranging from a jukebox containing over 100 Mega Man tunes to concept art, developer diaries, and even unused robot designs.

In addition to the digital download, a physical edition of the game is intended for release in North America in early 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and 3DS for $29.99.

It’s worth noting that Capcom has released a Mega Man compilation about 10 years ago entitled Mega Man Anniversary Collection which included all of the titles on Mega Man Legacy along with Mega Man 7 & 8 and 2 arcade games.
