With the release of Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection this week, it joins an already-impressive catalogue of Mega Man re-releases from the past several years.
If you combine the titles from Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 & 2, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2, and Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection, you've got a total of 24 classic games available to fans and newcomers. With the addition of the 10 Battle Network titles found in the latest release, this brings the running total up to a staggering 34 games. That's a heck of a lot of Mega Man!
It really feels like Capcom is looking to release as much of the Mega Man back catalogue as possible on modern consoles, possibly to preserve the series going forwards — at least in digital formats. There are still quite a few games from the series that remain untouched, however.
CCG writes - "Overall, the first three games, often considered the finest in the Megaman Battle Network series by fans, come very highly recommended. It's easy to learn and difficult to master, and any fans of Mega Man or RPGs will surely enjoy this. It's not very expensive to purchase and you get some great value if you purchase both collections together as well."
Today Capcom announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter between April 1, 2023, and June 30, 2023, and they're extremely strong.
