Mega Man Legacy Collection digital release set for Aug. 25

For cheaper than a 3D movie ticket you can play some of the greatest games in the 8-bit gaming catalog.

Mega Man Legacy Collection drops for digital download on Aug. 25 for $15 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC before arriving later next year on Nintendo 3DS and physical editions for $30 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo 3DS.

Mega Man 2 remains one of my all-time favorite games so $15 alone for that is worth the price of the set.

Mega Man Legacy Collection - Mega Man 2Mega Man Legacy 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.

Mega Man Legacy Collection - Mega Man 1All 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.
