The announcement of Mega Man Legacy Collection elicited some very polarizing reactions from everyone here when it was first announced, much like the majority of social media and the Internet in general. For those unfamiliar, here“s a quick recap: this collection contains the first six Mega Man games, has a ton of extra features (more on that momentarily), and uses a brand new engine built to modernize these classic titles versus the simple ROM dump of the Virtual Console variants, and previously released anniversary collections. These games look and feel more faithful to the originals on current-gen consoles more than anything released before. I played through Heat Man“s stage in Mega Man 2 to get a feel for the game myself, but before that — I watched someone else play through Mega Man 1 in its entirety, while Frank Cifaldi from Digital Eclipse showed him (and me) everything the game could do. Here“s a look at the basic menu screen you see while you“re playing any given game in the Legacy Collection. It features save-states (you only get one), so you can save and load your progress at any time during gameplay. You can display the game in its original form, or in widescreen. If you pick 'Original,' you“re treated to frames featuring original Mega Man artwork, like something you“d see on the Super Game Boy, I suppose. You can turn said frame on or off, if you“d like. The game can display in one of three ways: If you turn the display filter off, you“ll get the most pristine visuals possible. If you select Monitor, you“ll see the game exactly like it would appear on Frank“s monitor setup at home. He mentioned fine-tuning it to suit the ideal setup for the game if you happened to be playing it on PC. The last option, 'TV,' displays the game as it would appear on a standard definition television back in 1991. I can“t stress enough, how perfect these games look and feel. I don“t often show it, but I“m kind of a retro gaming snob, at times. I know, for example, that NES games on the Wii U Virtual Console look like garbage, in terms of staying true to the original hardware. You can rest assured that Frank“s pride towards this Legacy Collection is absolutely warranted. I“m extremely happy with what I saw and played, and I suspect — if you approach these games as an achievement in video game archiving versus a cheap cash-in (because they“re not; I promise) — you will be happy as well. Mega Man Legacy Collection will release on PlayStation 4, XBox 1 and PC this summer. The Nintendo 3DS version of the game (which is being fine-tuned to meet that system“s specifications, hence the slight delay) will come a little later on, this winter. For more information, you can check out Digital Eclipse“s official website.
Jonathan Higgins posted a article in Industry NewsCapcom has been quiet on the Mega Man front for quite some time, but today has yielded something interesting. What you'll see below is a trailer for Mega Man Legacy Collection, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this summer--plus the Nintendo 3DS this winter. This collection features the first six original Mega Man games plus many extra features including challenges (along the lines of something like NES Remix offers), a museum (featuring sketches, as well as an interactive database that lets you learn about and fight against Mega Man“s enemies), and more. Many folks I saw on Twitter and otherwise were comparing it to the Mega Man Anniversary Collection right away, which features the first eight Mega Man games, plus two games exclusive to that collection, Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters. While there“s no denying a discrepancy in content offered: what makes the Legacy Collection different is that developer Digital Eclipse is recreating the source code with a brand new engine for these six Mega Man games, specifically for modern consoles. You“ll be able to play the games in 1080p, and I imagine things will perform as accurately-to-the-originals as possible under the hood in comparison to the straight emulation of the Anniversary Collection and your typical Virtual Console â€œROM dumpâ€. The fact that it“s being developed using a brand new engine may help to explain why it“s skipping Wii U, and why it“s not coming to 3DS until later on. No one“s said as much officially just yet, but I imagine it“s much harder to make this new engine work on Wii U than it is for PS4, XB1 and PC--which are all built similarly. Regardless of how you feel about the news, this seems to be a collection built with actual video game archiving in mind versus celebration. Read more about that here. If the Mega Man news isn“t enough for you, Capcom have also revealed their entire E3 lineup. You can expect to see Resident Evil Zero, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, and the first major event appearance for Street Fighter V at E3 2015. Are you interested in Mega Man Legacy Collection?
