Confirming an earlier leak by the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee, Capcom has officially announced that Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be released this Summer.
The compilation will include the latter four games in the “Mega Man Classic” franchise, including Mega Man 7 (which originally launched exclusively for the Super NES in 1995), Mega Man 8 (the only game in the series for the PlayStation/Saturn), and Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 (two retro-style continuations developed by Inti Creates almost a decade ago).
Like the previous Legacy Collection, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will include the original games, dozens of remixed Challenge Stages, a Museum Mode with production art, and other game-tweaking options:
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.
Capcom will devote a lot of real estate in their booth at this year’s E3 Expo to Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, which will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 8.
