The legacy continues, as Capcom this week announced Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, a collection of the iconic Blue Bomber’s four most recent classic side-scrolling adventures, complete with several all-new features.
A follow up to Mega Man Legacy Collection, which contained the series’ original 8-bit titles, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 spans the evolution and retro revolution of the series. This collection will be available at retail for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One across North America, and digitally across North America and Europe for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC starting August 8, 2017
A compilation of four timeless adventures in one package, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 features the most recent entries in the classic side-scrolling series. The collection also includes a Museum jam-packed with history and production art, challenge remix stages for long-time fans, and first-timer friendly options like added armor and checkpoint saves for easy reload. Journey through the later entries in the series with these four titles: Mega Man 7 introduced mysterious rival Bass and his companion Treble, while Mega Man 8 featured the series’ first impressively animated and fully voiced cutscenes; Mega Man 9 marked the series’ return to its roots with 8-bit visuals, music, and gameplay; Mega Man 10 retained these features and included three playable character options.
Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 joins Capcom’s lineup of playable games and activities for the 2017 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles next week, June 13-15. Capcom’s E3 2017 booth will also feature the first public appearance of the highly anticipated MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE in addition to demos of the currently available Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and the latest content in Street Fighter V
