Capcom has announced Mega Man Legacy Collection, a new digital package that celebrates the Blue Bomber's 8-bit history.
oh look not a game megaman game
Still, this is a step in the right direction for Capcom. Bringing out old titles that people have been asking to be released for a while now is hardly something to be mad over. And at least they are moving in the right direction with Resident Evil 1 remake, Resident Evil 0 etc. . .unlike Konami By the by, anyone think it's strange that this was announced before E3? I would have expected to see something like this is the middle of the Sony conference or something.
has fans ask for rerelease because all i seen fans ask for is megeman legends 3 and re2 hd and devil may cry 5
"Still, this is a step in the right direction for Capcom. Bringing out old titles that people have been asking to be released for a while now is hardly something to be mad over." It seems those who are asking are not bright enough to do their own research as these games (mega man in particular) are readily available on a plethora of platforms. Especially in a nice "anniversary edition" with a couple of extra games. so yeah... the problem with something like this is it's not going to attract "new" fans as today's youth literally has no sense of nostalgia or even the patience to play these games. People want to call it fan service, well the fans pretty much already have them in some form or another. If they want to do something different with theses 6 games in particular... let them do it in a style like nintendo did with super mario all stars. not just a bit for bit port but a full on remake with 16-bit style graphics. Seriously if MM fans want to play these games, they can in so many ways it's not even funny. It's like Capcom is trying to replace Atari as having games remastered and re-released on the most console generations.

* They did this before on Gamecube/PS2 where they released the 8-bit games and then a 2nd collection with the SNES/PS1 games. * Good start though.
but the game on gamecube and ps2 had more games
and don't forget the xbox version of the anniversary was a blend of the the gc and ps2 in terms of bonus content.
I agree vork77. This has LESS content than a game from 10 years ago. Would it have been so hard add all of this stuff, plus Megaman 7-10, Megaman racing, and the 2 fighting games, & The Megaman World series (GameBoy Megamans, which are different from the NES games). I could maybe understand if they remade them in HD, similar to Megaman in Smash, but this seems like a very lazy effort on their part.
well at least Capcom was nice enough to bring it to the 3DS so I will definitely pick it up there. However it would have been nice to have it on my Wii U. Although I guess most of the titles exist already on the VC, but this would have been a much more attractive package at a better price point - I find the VC titles to be a tad expensive.
Just get the MM Anniversary collection on either the cube, xbox or PS2. All of them had been cleaned up and play great. The xbox version looks really sharp on a 360. The Ps2 looks good through a BC PS3 and of course the cube plays great on a Wii via component. Or are those options just too easy for people to go? Man i swear this gen is like that time in the late 90's and early 2000's when music companies were remastering all the same songs they remastered already. but just putting them into different collections. you can only take so many renditions of 'Every rose has it's thorn' and they all sound the same no matter which disc it's on.
So everyone knows, it's Megaman classic 1-6, none of the SNES games, no X series
That Sucks. sidenote: I would love to have all the original Mega Man games remade with todays graphics. Kind of like what they did with Bionic Commando, just better lol. Same scrolling gameplay just updated graphics and effects.
Why not a Wii U or Vita version?!
This would be perfect for vita.
The Vita technically already have the 8 bit Megaman games as psone classics, albeit the Japanese versions of them.
wow,capcom really hates psvita & wiiu
Played all these on emulators over the years, pointless collection that's not even complete.
Why not add in 7,8,9 and 10?
because they can charge more money for them down the road, silly
I don't think it would cost them much to add those in...but ok.... Edit: oh I know what it is..
It's called capcom is greedy
Yea I'll pass which they did the X series
*wish Dumb phone
Another half assed effort. All ten Mega Man classic series games should have been in this collection + Mega Man Powered Up as an extra.
why no Wii u love?
This is amazing news. I finished every Mega Man game before I turned 12. The bomber and I have a very special bond. Day freakin one.
Nope. If you're going to do it, do it right. HD VERSIONS of MEGAMAN 1-9 and MEGAMAN X-X6 completely remastered with new graphics and the ability to switch to the the old game engines on the fly ala Halo 1-2 Anniversary. Also in addition to that a completely new game that finally answers the question of what happened between MEGAMAN Classic and MEGAMAN X.
This would have been amazing, but undoubtedly more expensive than the relatively-low entry price of $14.99/€14.99/£11.99 that was listed in the press release. I think this isn't a terrible collection for the price. That said, I would definitely be interested in the version you described for $29.99 or lower.
They should release it for Vita as well. Really a surprising omission.
I just said that in my comment. It makes no sense at all.
Why no Vita version?!!
Yes! YES! *YES!* I want it now.
Cancel Megaman Legends 3 but give us this? Man Fuck you Crapcom
no love for PsVita?
I'll get it on PS4 but wish it was on the vita.
I'll get it for New 3DS but wish it was on the Wii U.
The collection from two generations ago had a lot more content
Not a huge deal, but for the right price I would pick this up because Mega Man is before my time for the most part.
Physical copy? and also kind of ironic the Nintendo console is the only one not getting this when Megaman was in smash and pretty much was born on Nintendo.......
The PS2 Megaman collection had the Nintendo and SNES Mega Man games! What a joke, this is a complete rip off.
6 games for 15$ is a rip off?
When I have 6 games plus the SNES games and Megaman and Bass for just as cheap for PS2.
No Vita, no buy...
f**k you capcom!! i want mega man X series on ps4 not this crap all over again...
Cool its coming to PC.
