Capcom announces Mega Man Legacy Collection and E3 Plans

Hang on to your hats, you Mega Man fans… I know you still exist. Capcom has just put out a press release that outlines their upcoming Mega Man Legacy Collection for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Sorry past-generation consoles, Capcom has denied you access to this Bluebomber collection, but oddly enough the Nintendo 3DS will also get access to the title.

Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced new details for its upcoming title lineup and confirmed its roster of playable titles to be shown at the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles next week. The newly announced 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. This digital collection will be available across North America and Europe this summer for PlayStation 4 , Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC, followed by a winter release on Nintendo 3DS.  

In addition to playable demos for Mega Man Legacy Collection, Resident Evil 0, and Devil May Cry  4 Special Edition, E3 will be the first major event appearance for the highly anticipated Street Fighter  V, which will hype up its presence with a tournament stage and interactive photo opportunity for attendees.

Truth be told I would rather have seen a new Mega Man title, but I suppose any Mega Man is better than no Mega Man…. right? But damn, where’s Mega Man X? I want my Mega Man X and Zero, Capcom…and I want them NOW!!!
