Many who have at least heard of the Mega Man series will no doubt be familiar with the Blue Bomber, but those who are avid fans will have no trouble recalling another iconic figure in the franchise, namely the energy sword-wielding Mega Man Zero.
Very soon, you’ll get to step into Zero’s shoes once more with the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection.
This, of course, isn’t the first Legacy Collection in the Mega Man franchise, with the original Mega Man and Mega Man series having been launched in recent years as well. The main difference is that this particular one will feature both Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX in one giant package.
Here are the six games that will be playable in the collection, as well as the original platform they debuted in:
- Mega Man Zero (Game Boy Advance)
- Mega Man Zero 2 (Game Boy Advance)
- Mega Man Zero 3 (Game Boy Advance)
- Mega Man Zero 4 (Game Boy Advance)
- Mega Man ZX (Nintendo DS)
- Mega Man ZX Advent (Nintendo DS)
That’s six games for the low, low price of US$29.99.
As with the other Legacy Collection games, you’ll have the option of playing as Zero in either his original pixelated sprite, or in crisper HD graphics.
To ease newer players into the franchise, more accessibility options such as a Save Assist system and a Casual Scenario mode for all six games in the collection will be included as well. However, this doesn’t mean veteran fans of the franchise will be sidelined, with a more challenging Z Chaser Challenge Mode which will demand even more of an intimate knowledge of Zero’s controls.
Furthermore, there will bed an in-game gallery which allows you to access the game’s original music and over 600 art pieces from all six games.
The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection will be available on January 21, 2020 for PC on Steam, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
