A new Mega Man game may not be on the way, but for those looking for a Blue Bomber fix, Capcom will deliver one later this summer.
The publisher announced today that Mega Man Legacy Collection will release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC this summer, with a 3DS version to follow in the winter. The collection will bring together the first six original Mega Man titles, along with a promised Challenge Mode and musem mode that will include art from those six titles.
Capcom has released similar collections before, including one that had all these games for consoles in 2004 and 2005. The game, for those who are attending, will be playable at E3, along with other rereleases from Capcom including Resident Evil 0 and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition. The only fully new release announced by Capcom for E3 is Street Fighter V.
And so while the company remains mum on the future of Mega Man, a new animated TV series is on the way to celebrate the character’s 30th anniversary next year.
