Capcom on Monday announced Mega Man Legacy Collection, an upcoming game that includes “faithful reproductions” of the original six Mega Man games. The collection also comes with a new challenge mode and a collection of images, concept art, and other assets from the iconic franchise’s history.
The game, which will be available only as a download, launches this summer for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a release for the Nintendo 3DS to follow this winter.
Mega Man Collection’s new challenge mode “remixes gameplay segments from all six games.” Capcom also says that difficulty is scalable, meaning the game should appeal to both veterans and newcomers alike.
Capcom’s other big announcement today was the confirmation of its E3 plans. The Japanese publisher isn’t holding a marquee briefing like Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, but the company will have a booth on the E3 show floor. Games including Mega Man Collection, Resident Evil 0 HD, and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will be playable.
In addition, Street Fighter V will make its first appearance at a major event at E3 next week. There will be a tournament stage and “interactive” photo opportunities.
