Mega Man Legacy Collection coming this year

If you’re anything like me, then you missed out on the majority of the 8-bit generation and are constantly snubbed at pixel-art conventions. If that’s the case, then Capcom has good news for you! Mega Man Legacy Collection has been announced, and is coming to a gaming system near you. Hit the jump for power-ups and information.

According to Capcom’s blog, Legacy Collection will remaster Mega Man 1 through 6 with 1080p visuals and what they call “modern bonuses”. These bonuses come in the form of leaderboards, a Challenge Mode filled with key moments and boss fights from all six games, an exhaustive in-game museum of artwork, and a database that allows players to practice against difficult enemies at will.

The exact release date hasn’t been announced, but the blog post mentions that it will be playable ahead of release at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and that the game will release on the majority of its planned platforms in the third quarter of this year. The 3DS version will be released sometime thereafter, during the American winter (i.e. summer for us here in the Southern Hemisphere).

The collection will release digitally for PC, PS4, Xbox One and 3DS. All versions are priced at $14.99 (roughly R190 locally), and Capcom has promised to show off more of the collection at E3 2015. The only odd thing about this announcement is the lack of Wii U support.
