One thing Mega Man fans can look forward to this year is the recently announced Mega Man Legacy Collection. The HD collection contains six legendary Mega Man adventures and is coming to a number of platforms this summer on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. The Nintendo 3DS version of the game isn’t expected to be released until the fall. Sadly there is no Wii U version, if you’re wondering why it’s missing from the list of platforms. Anyway, here’s all the details that have emerged so far about the Mega Man Legacy Collection.
- Rapid fire is in and totally optional
- No shoulder button weapon switching
- Menus use Japanese artwork; U.S/EU packaging in the museum
- Complete Works arranged music on menus, not in-game
- All six games retain the one frame button lag from NES
- Menu colors are based on the original Mega Man color coordinates from Capom’s old licensing manual
- Replays limited to 100 individual replays
- One save slot per game
- Considering a hot key for save/load state
- There’s a platinum trophy for PlayStation 4 (YAY!!!!!)
- No Navi Mode (i.e in-game hints)
- The intent of this collection is to present MM1-6 on modern consoles in the highest quality possible. *If* sales are good, they will consider collecting other Mega Man games.
- No 3DS details until much later
- They did not specify why the Wii U is being left out, just one of those “not right now” answers
- The final issue of Mega Man will be #55. We are planning on making it a commemorative special, though we are still hammering out the details. The issues before will set the stage for some important moments connected to the game Mega Man 4.
Arcade machines are becoming redundant here in the west, but who could resist playing an arcade version of the beloved Luigi’s Mansion franchise? Gamers in Japan will have the opportunity to play Luigi’s Mansion Arcade which is based on the Nintendo 3DS hit Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. Capcom who are producing the game have released two new videos showcasing the game’s mechanics which should be familiar to anyone that’s had the opportunity to play the originals. Be sure to check out the official website which has just gone live.
Capcom has understandably ambitious hopes for Monster Hunter X, the next installment in its massively popular Monster Hunter series. According to Siliconera, Capcom expects to sell 2.5 million copies.
Last month, Capcom said in a financial report that they expected to sell 2.5 million units of a “title related to Monster Hunter” for the Nintendo 3DS by March 31st, 2016. Back then, everyone just figured Capcom was talking about Monster Hunter Stories, as it was the only new Monster Hunter game announced at the time. That wasn’t exactly the case, apparently.
Monster Hunter X will be released in Japan sometime this Winter. A Western release for the game has not been announced as yet. Read more at Siliconera.
