Mega Man Legacy Collection includes faithful reproductions of the original six Mega Man games along with a new Challenge Mode and a Museum collection of art assets that will appeal to both new players and diehard fans.

Each game has been restored to a playable state from their original source elements, and is contextualized by vintage artifacts dating back to the first game’s publication in 1987.

Mega Man Legacy Collection is a celebration of the 8-bit history of Capcom’s iconic Blue Bomber. Featuring faithful reproductions of the series’ origins, the Legacy Collection will remind long-time fans and introduce newcomers to what made Mega Man such a popular and iconic character. In addition to the six original Mega Man games, Mega Man Legacy Collection features new ways to experience the classic games with the Museum Mode and new Challenge Mode. Challenge Mode remixes gameplay segments from all six games, with plenty of scaling difficulty objectives for experienced players to conquer yet serving as a good starting point for new players, too. Museum Mode contains a comprehensive collection of history, high-res art and original concept pieces – a mega treat for any fan of Mega Man and video game history.

The Nintendo 3DS version will contain more than 100 new art and history pieces packed into the game’s already massive in-game Museum. Eleven Nintendo 3DS exclusive remix challenges can also be unlocked using the original Mega Man amiibo—but that’s not the only amiibo that can unlock these new challenges! A brand-new gold-colored Mega Man amiibo was announced today, which will be available exclusively in the Collector’s Edition.
