Second Mega Man Legacy Collection on the way for consoles and PC

Remember how Mega Man Legacy Collection only had the first 6 games? Well, there was a reason, as the second set is on the way for later this year.

The legacy lives

Yeah. Well you kind of had to know this was coming, no? I mean, the first Legacy Collection was unfinished after all. And this is Capcom that we’re talking about here. So it probably should have been a foregone conclusion that there’d be a sequel on the way, and that brings us to this.

Capcom has made official Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. Not a set of X series games, this sequel instead finishes the original series off with MM’s 7 through 10. Yes, you get four games. To be fair however, these are some pretty great games (not that the first ones weren’t), and there are some ‘improvements’ as well.

A compilation of four timeless adventures in one package, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 features the most recent entries in the classic side-scrolling series. The collection also includes a Museum jam-packed with history and production art, challenge remix stages for long-time fans, and first-timer friendly options like added armor and checkpoint saves for easy reload. Journey through the later entries in the series with these four titles: Mega Man 7 introduced mysterious rival Bass and his companion Treble, while Mega Man 8 featured the series’ first impressively animated and fully voiced cutscenes; Mega Man 9 marked the series’ return to its roots with 8-bit visuals, music, and gameplay; Mega Man 10 retained these features and included three playable character options.

As to when you’ll get to play the above, that’s going to be sooner than later. Legacy Collection 2 is scheduled to hit the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 8th. Oh, and you’re not missing something, there’s apparently no handheld version planned.
