The blue bomber will be returning in a new six-title compilation this fall in Mega Man Legacy Collection. Scheduled to launch initially for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and later for 3DS, the set will include the first six Mega Man games, plus a Museum of concept and character art and a new Challenge Mode.
