All Articles: Mega Man Legacy Collection

Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2 will be released for Switch on May 22

Capcom has announced that Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will make their way to the Nintendo Switch on May 22.

The two compilations will be available to download separately through the Nintendo eShop ($14.99 for MMLC and $19.99 for MMLC2), but a retail release with the same launch date is also in the works. Unfortunately, only the six NES games from Mega Man Legacy Collection will be included on the Game Card. Players who purchase the retail edition will have to redeem a download code to receive the four games and bonus features from Mega Man Legacy Collection 2.

Capcom didn’t explain their rationale for this baffling release strategy on the Capcom-Unity blog, but they did unveil a new trailer for both compilations, and its been embedded above.

The publisher also said that that the first Legacy Collection will include a Rewind option to turn back time on a poorly-executed jump and access to a batch of 3DS-exclusive Challenges with a Mega Man Amiibo figure. Legacy Collection 2 will also include a batch of Amiibo-locked Challenges that weren’t available on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be released for Switch in Spring 2018

Capcom had one more announcement to make as part of their “Mega Man 30th Anniversary Celebration” livestream, and it’s one that should make Switch owners very happy. After skipping Nintendo’s Wii U the first time around, the publisher confirmed that Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be released for the Switch in Spring 2018.

Additionally, Capcom said that both games will offer Amiibo support, and the first Mega Man Legacy Collection will receive a new Rewind option “to go back in time following blunders.” The Rewind feature will also be added to the game on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One as a free update.

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Blue/Red/Yellow, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Return to PoPoLoCrois, more

It’s time to catch ’em all… again…

The Pokemon franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and Nintendo will add the original trio of Game Boy games (Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red, and Pokemon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition) to the 3DS eShop on Saturday, February 27. Players will even be able to battle their friends using the handheld’s wireless connection. And fans looking for another dose of Poke-mania should tune in to tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct presentation at 10:00 AM (Eastern Time) to learn more about the future of the franchise.

Another blast from the past is new to the 3DS eShop today as Capcom has added the Mega Man Legacy Collection to the download service. Players will be able to explore the first six Mega Man games, which were originally released on the NES from 1987 through 1994, as well as a brand new Challenge Mode. But if you’re looking for something new on your 3DS, Marvelous and XSEED have teamed up to bring together the RPG stylings of the PoPoLoCrois franchise with the farming simulation of the Story of Seasons franchise in Return to PoPoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale, which will be available on March 1.

Finally, over on the Wii U eShop, 6180: The Moon is now available to download for Nintendo’s home console. The platformer previously appeared on the PC and Xbox One, but its minimalist aesthetic will surely find a lot of fans on the Wii U.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

New Releases: Far Cry Primal, PvZ Garden Warfare 2, Mega Man Legacy Collection, More

newreleases022316

A trip back to the Stone Age, anthropomorphic plants with guns, and a compilation of some of the greatest platformers ever sit atop this week’s new release roundup.

Publishers are easily swayed by trends and it’s not hard to slot many of the most popular shooters of the last 15 years into three well-defined eras. After Medal of Honor, everyone rushed to produce a shooter set during World World II. After Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the hardware and tactics of the modern military became the focus. And after Deus Ex: Human Revolution, many shooters have seen shifted to the “not-so-distant future.”

But Ubisoft wants to go back… even further back than the European Theater. And that’s why Far Cry: Primal (PS4, Xbox One) features a battle between warring tribes of Stone Age warriors. Trading machine guns and laser rifles for stone knives and spears, Far Cry: Primal also lets players train a prehistoric tiger to do their dirty work for them.

And on the subject of bizarre shooters, EA and PopCap Games are back this week with another entry in the Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare saga. Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) is a time-hopping trip that also adds back in the single-player modes that its predecessor was lacking.

Finally this week, Capcom brought together the first six Mega Man games for the retail release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection (3DS, PS4, Xbox One). If you didn’t play it last year, you should definitely stop putting it off.

A complete list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

2016videogames-header

After years and years of publishers packing the September through November “Holiday” season with an unmanageable number of new AAA titles, we might get a much more balanced release calendar in 2016. But can you believe it all happened by accident?

Video game fans have always had to deal with delays, but publishers got even more use out of their erasers than normal in 2015. Aside from the one-two punch of Fallout 4‘s E3 2015 announcement, and its eventual release on November 10th, no game felt safe… and more than a few big titles got pushed into 2016. So now we get to ring in 2016 with a release calendar that just might offer up something exciting all year long.

Are you ready? Because here… we… go… (more…)
