Mega Man Legacy Collection screens/art museum:
Mega Man Legacy Collection will be available digitally across North America and Europe starting August 25, 2015 for $14.99 / €14.99 / £11.99 on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC, and early 2016 on the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. Physical editions of the game will also be available early 2016 in North America for $29.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo 3DS. More details regarding the Nintendo 3DS digital release and the physical editions will be confirmed at a later date.
This collection celebrates a piece of video game history by not only featuring the series’ origins with all six of the 8-bit classics, it also collects hundreds of high-resolution scans of vintage concept sketches, production art, unused Robot Master designs, a database of enemy information, a robust Challenge Mode full of remixed gameplay sections, plus a music player with all the games’ soundtracks—more than 100 songs!
Challenge Mode remixes gameplay segments from all six games, with plenty of scaling difficulty objectives for experienced players to conquer yet serves as a good starting point for new players, too. All six of the classic games will retain their retro 8-bit style with a newly added HD finish, giving all of the original sprites the crispest look fans have ever seen.
