Seems cool, and this time Capcom isn't *totally* ignoring Nintendo. 3DS version confirmed! (but coming after the PC/XB1/PS4 release)

PC, PS4, Xbone digital versions coming August 25 for $15.

3DS version coming 2016, along with physical versions of PS4 and Xbone, for $30.
Why is the 3DS version much later? Why is the 3DS version twice as expensive?

This too.

I'm just kinda bitter about this whole thing. Mega Man is practically synonymous with Nintendo at this point.

@TriforceBun All the physical versions are $30 I think, so it's not necessarily a 3DS tax. Or maybe they don't want the 3DS version to undercut the pricing of the games on the Virtual Console. Who knows, it's Capcom.

It does kinda suck that Wii U isn't getting these versions, but at least they're all on the VC.

Yeah, but the collection would cost half the price of the first six Mega Man games on VC, and it would include all the bonus stuff to boot. I was hoping that after the Smash Bros Mega Man fever, we'd be pretty much assured stuff like this on the Wii U, but I guess not!

Did you guys read the Archie comics at all? They're pretty awesome, and definitely tickle your "oh, that looks niiiice" bone!

Cool interview from Capcom and the director of Mega Man Legacy Collection. Interview done by Polygon staff. We get to see some gameplay, options, extras, challenges, and hear some of the remixed music. Neat! (all footage is from the PS4 version)

Good thing the game(s) is(are) coming to Nintendo's platform! The synonymous-ity continues! No need to be bitter.

@Mr_Mustache

I don't even know where to get Archie comics!

@GameDadGrant
But it's next year and much pricier on the 3DS for some reason!

@GameDadGrant Looks great to me. I was planning to wait for a Steam sale, but it's already such a good value and looks so good...

$30 for the physical version, yeah? Did we get a confirmed price for the eShop download?

The later release date is fine IMO - I've got plenty of other things to play in 3DS well into next year. The PS4 and XB1? Not so much. Those platforms are in much more of a dire need for quality titles for their fans to enjoy than 3DS.

Gotta throw those poor guys a bone once in a while!

They could at least hack in the ability to use weapons from one game in another.

@pokepal148 That would be a pretty huge effort. They'd probably have to straight up code every weapon into every game from scratch, not to mention changing the weapon select in each game to function for 50+ entries instead of just a dozen or so.

Honestly this package already looks like a pretty great effort. Gonna have fun looking through all those super high-res drawings. And the challenges look enticing.

God forbid we expect effort for our $15-$30.

@Jargon Sure, if you expect that level of functionality for the money that's fine. Just saying it's not something so simple that it could be "hacked in" with some copy/pasting and a few values changed.

I'd more expect them to make a Legacy Collection that actually includes 7, 8, 9, and 10. Why only include the first 6 games? They included 7 and 8 on Anniversary Collection didn't they?


Posted by

@PogueSquadron Yep, Anniversary Collection had those and the two Mega Man arcade games, Power Fighters and Power Battles. I guess they wanted to keep it strictly to the NES games this time around.

Wasn't there a Genesis Mega Man game that was pretty much the Mario All-Stars of the first three games? 16-bit visuals and everything. The kicker was that there was a mode where you could pick your own set of 8 weapons (out of the first 3 games' sub-weapons) before going into one of the games. I always wanted to try that...

@TriforceBun You're thinking of Mega Man: The Wily Wars. I don't think you were able to take weapons from one game to another. The package did have a short original adventure (six or seven stages in total) where you could use any weapon you wanted, though.

It seems really unlikely the game will ever get a digital re-release, as the ports are apparently a bit shoddy. So why not watch this speedrun from last month's Summer Games Done Quick event!
