Have you been eagerly awaiting more news the Mega Man Legacy Collection since it was announced during this year’s E3 Expo? Well today’s the day, because Capcom has confirmed the compilation will be available for download on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 25. Sadly, the 3DS version of the game won’t be available to download until sometime in early 2016.
Capcom also announced that the Mega Man Legacy Collection will be available in a special physical version for the 3DS, PS4, and Xbox One in early 2016. Priced at $29.99 (twice the digital download’s $14.99 price tag), more details on the physical version will be announced at a later date.
Both versions of the Mega Man Legacy Collection will include all six Mega Man games originally released on the NES. A Challenge Mode (with “remixed gameplay sections”), a Music Player, and an extensive collection of vintage production documents will also be included.
It looks gamers interested in the Mega Man Legacy Collection will have to weigh their options very carefully. You can buy the compilation in about three weeks for a lower price, but you’ll never actually “own” it. Or you can wait and pay double the price, but you’ll receive a shiny disc in return that will better preserve the legacy of the first six Mega Man games.
