The Blue Bomber Returns
Capcom has been going back to their older properties to gain a bit in the bank. By bringing back the classic Mega Man experience with the first Mega Man Legacy Collection they released a while back, to the Disney Afternoon Collection. That collection saw a series of great Disney games that the Capcom team developed back in the day, like the amazing Ducktales game. (That moon level was the best.)
So Capcom has decided to dig back into the vault by announcing the Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. A conventional title, which is nice to see for a change. Nothing like Megaman Legacy Collection: Hyper Extended Edition Turbo, or anything like that. The one thing that is a bit disappointing about the latest Legacy release is that 3DS owners will be missing out this time, as the release is aimed at PC and Console.
The Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will arrive in August on PC, PS4, and Xbox One at a reasonable $19.99 in the US and will follow a similar price point in the PAL territories. Considering you get a number of Mega Man games with some added features such as remixed stages, checkpoint saves, and a museum mode. It’s not a bad price point to get some classic Mega Man action and support Capcom at the same time!
While Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is no Sonic Mania, it is still a nifty little announcement leading up to E3. Where we’ll see a plethora of new IPs and fresh new games, so the classics getting some love is a nice touch. The sad thing though is that so far, a Switch version has not been announced. Given what they’ve done with Street Fighter, Capcom would be foolish to leave the Switch out at this point. But time will tell.
