The upcoming Mega Man compilation, Mega Man Legacy Collection, has been officially dated for August 25. Save for the 3DS version, that is, which is slated for an early 2016 release. Gamers who prefer physical copies should be glad to hear that Capcom plans on releasing the 3DS, PS4, and Xbox One versions in stores early next year as well. Boxed copies will cost a bit more, however, running $29.99 instead of $14.99. Details about the 3DS and physical versions should be coming along in the near future. Regardless of the format, all sets will include the first six Mega Man games along with a new Challenge Mode, which features remixed segments from all games with scaling difficulty, and a Museum with hundreds of unlockable songs as well as high-res scans of concept sketches, production art, and unused designs.
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. The latter will consist of a set of increasingly difficult trials that utilize portions from all six games, such as going through an area from each game on a single life, which is said to provide a challenge for veterans and serve as a learning tool for new players. The mode will also upload replays of the best runs for everyone to check out. Digital Eclipse is handling the project.
