Re-live six classic platformers with Mega Man Legacy Collection on 3DS this winter

Mega Man games are a rarity these days, and when a new one’s announced, it’s often a Virtual Console re-release. While Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 garners millions in Kickstarter pledges, Capcom’s 8-bit hero has taken a back-seat, with the controversial Mega Man Legends 3 cancellation remaining a sore subject in some gamers’ eyes.

For fans that love to double-dip, or for those looking for a cheap entry point to the Mega Man franchise, Capcom will release Mega Man Legacy Collection on Nintendo 3DS late this year – following HD versions on PS4, Xbox One and PC in the summer.

The compilation will feature the first six Mega Man games, with an all-new Challenge Mode that remixes stages in a similar fashion to Nintendo’s own NES Remix. You can also look forward to the Museum, which features high-res (or perhaps not-so-high-res on 3DS) artwork from the original games.

It’ll launch at $14.99 as a digital download. Not a bad price when you consider each game costs $5 when bought separately from the Nintendo eShop.

Is this something you’re interested in, or are you dying for Capcom to pull its finger out and announce a brand-new Mega Man already?
