Capcom’s latest attempt to take our money, because nostalgia, is the Mega Man Legacy Collection, releasing on August 25, 2015. Digital Eclipse is responsible for the remastering treatment to be seen in this collection to bring us the original six Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Mega Man titles in full 1080p, plus some additional modes, and separate save slots for each title.

The 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 die hard fans.” Which is sure to please the fans waiting for more Mega Man in their life. For those ignoring this because it is just yet another re-release, the game has enough extra flair with its Challenge Mode, art collection, and, of course, a reasonable price of $14.99.

Frank Cifaldi (head of restoration for Digital Eclipse) released the following statement regarding the project: “Movies have the Criterion Collection, but there hasn’t been anything like that for games. We’re living in the golden age of a brand new form of artistic expression, and we’re not doing a very good job of making sure our games will be available five years from now, let alone fifty. The more we can do right now to take video game preservation seriously, the safer our history will be.”

This collection admittedly feels underwhelming with things such as the Mega Man Anniversary Collection, which offers the first eight classic Mega Man titles, plus extras; however, the trade-off is seeing the first six better than ever, including new challenges.

The Mega Man Legacy Collection rolls out digitally on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 25 for $14.99. In 2016, there will be both a 3DS version and physical copies of the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sold for $29.99. More details are to be released on these in the future.
