Mega Man Legacy drops this month with loads of content
Capcom announced at Gamescom today that Mega Man Legacy will be available for digital download for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 25. Those who want a copy for their 3DS will have to wait until early 2016, unfortunately.
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.
