Mega Man Legacy Collection Retail Date Announced

Today, Capcom confirmed that the North American PlayStation 4 and Xbox One retail editions and the Nintendo 3DS version of Mega Man Legacy Collection will release on February 23, 2016.

Mega Man Legacy Collection is a celebration of the 8-bit history of Capcom's iconic Blue Bomber. The game features faithful reproductions of the original six Mega Man games (Mega Man 1-6), plus new ways to experience the classic games with Museum Mode and new Challenge Mode. Challenge Mode remixes gameplay segments from all six games, with scaling difficulty objectives for experienced players to conquer yet serving as a good starting point for new players, too. Museum Mode contains a comprehensive collection of production art and original concept sketchesâ€" a mega treat for any fan of Mega Man and video game history.

The Nintendo Direct event today introduced even more exciting news for fans of Capcom's iconic Blue Bomber. The Nintendo 3DS version will contain more than 100 new art and history pieces packed into the game's already massive in-game Museum. Eleven Nintendo 3DS exclusive remix challenges can also be unlocked using the original Mega Man amiibo - but that's not the only amiibo that can unlock these new challenges! A brand-new gold-colored Mega Man amiibo was announced today, which will be available exclusively in the Collector's Edition.
