Comprised of Mega Man 7-10, the new collection comes complete with upgrades that include online leaderboards, music updates, and a Challenge Mode with new stage remixes. A full archive of concept gallery will also be available for the release. This is a great opportunity for fans of the Mega Man series to see production art, development materials, and sketches from the later games in the series.
The sequel to the smash hit Mega Man Legacy Collection comes at a time when the future of the titular hero is quite uncertain. It has been years since fans have seen a new game from Capcom’s most beloved character and with the new Nintendo console we can only hope that an announcement will be forthcoming. Hopefully the popularity of Mega Man Legacy Collection, a game that saw the first six entries in HD, should be a sign to the Capcom that fans are still clamoring for their favorite robotic hero.
An interesting development buried within Capcom’s announcement is their decision to forgo the release of Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 on any Nintendo console. This means that owners of the recently released Nintendo Switch, a console that is chomping at the bit for new releases, will not be receiving a game that was made famous by Nintendo! Capcom has yet to go in-depth on why they have made the decision but one can only assume that it’s related to poor sales on the WiiU and 3DS.
For now, PlayStation and Xbox owners can look forward to the Rockman – I mean, Mega Man games in all of their re-release glory. Check out Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 when it releases on August 8th for $19.99 USD.
