Title: Mega Man Legacy Collection coming to PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 & Nintendo 3DS
Post by: VixyNyan on June 08, 2015, 06:58:21 PM
It has been confirmed, after a long hiatus of no new games for our dear Blue Bomber, that a collection called "Mega Man Legacy Collection" will be showing up in North America and Europe regions on Windows PC (Steam), Xbox One and Playstation 4 sometime this summer and on Nintendo 3DS later this winter. A trailer for this collection has also been posted for viewing.

http://youtu.be/yVfeUq5TmQs (http://youtu.be/yVfeUq5TmQs)

It has been stated that this collection of ported games will be remastered in 1080p with bunch of in-game content and will be sold digitally for $14.99 USD / 11.99 GBP. The collection will be developed by Digital Eclipse Software, the studio that worked on the Sega Genesis Collection in the past.

The collection will consist of the first six Mega Man games from the NES, similar to what Capcom has done before with the Complete Works releases on PS1, as well as the Mega Man Anniversary Collection by Atomic Planet, but without MM7, MM8, Power Battle and Power Fighters.

The collection will also have various game features in it, like Challenge Mode, Leaderboards, Replays, Database and Museum. The Challenge Mode will have a mix of trials and challenges for each game, like example fighting against the robot masters one after another or play through every level with only one life bar. And as such, your performance will be uploaded to online leaderboards and store replays for other player to look at. The Database will allow you to look at enemies and bosses, and also have you practice playing against these bosses without having to play through the whole level first. Museum will have history, high resolution artwork, sketches and other image materials that you can look at from the lore of Mega Man.

Honestly, not impressed. At all. Seems like a lazy cashgrab. Not to mention the Anniversary collection was basically the same thing except with more actual game and less art we've seen before.

Unfortunately I agree, I mean sure it's nice for the people who don't don't have the games and allows them to get a bundle of games for a cheaper price, but most people already have these games in one format or another.  Leader Boards don't really make people want to spend more money on something they already have and most people can see the art and information on the database with a simple internet search.

I mean the Challenge Mode sounds nice, but it's not enough of a draw for people to buy this in my opinion.  I think the main problem is that they released this too late.

Good thing I never got any of the NES Mega Man games on the 3DS incase I ever consider this.
But considering I can play all the games pixel perfect on my PC already and everything else about this collection is probably superfluous stuff I can find on the internet, it's really hard to care.

The Classic series is always going to be the face of Mega Man, no matter what really happens. Even the successful Battle Network series lives in its shadow. And when Capcom has a franchise face, they know how to exploit it.

I get the feeling this is some sort of impulse release by Capcom to try and remind people that Mega Man still exists and had good classic games before Mighty No. 9 comes out.

Honestly I think a slightly better idea would have be to make a collection of all the first games of each series.  That would make the term Legacy more accurate.  Of course that would be impossible since Capcom can't release Legends 1 due to some copy right issues with the voice actors or something, I don't remember the exact details.

As far as I know, it's not the copyrights involving the voice actors (even though Tiesel's VA is a convicted pedophile). It's because of a specific soda reference on the vending machines and the YAG building in one of the areas are specifically copyrighted. The N64 version removed the material, and the PSP ports changed them as well, but the Playstation Network refuses to allow any alteration of the isos from their original release when it comes to Classics, so they can't censor/alter the content for the PSN release.

If it was VA issues, the Misadventures of Tron Bonne, which is presumably devoid of any such problems thanks to its more contained, minigame structure, wouldn't of been released last month.

They probably could still bypass it, really. If they did a backport from the PSP version (revise controls, the PSP has widescreen already so it wouldn't be hard to refigure for modern HDTVs), that'd be one thing, but that'd require more effort than they'd probably want. Or they could probably put an edited ISO in a game collection like this one and bypass the Playstation Classics bullshit, but again, it's Capcom and that's also effort into Inafune's dream series.

I'm sure someone at Capcom wants to get Legends re-released, it's just that everything from Capcom themselves to stuff out of their control probably says 'no' over and over.

Nah, I'd say they're afraid of anything but muh 8-bit.
I get that classic is always going to be top dog, but there ARE other classic series games besides the 8-bit ones. I mean, they do the same [parasitic bomb] with the Megaman rep in Smash bros, MM 1-6 (And at that 4-6 much less than 1-3) with only one thing from 7 and 8 each (Danger Wrap and Tornado Hold custom moves specifically), nothing from MM&B or 9/10, nothing from the series outside of Classic except for the Final Smash and the respective trophies (And of those only X series gets more than just the respective Megaman), nothing from either Zero or ZX at all.

I mean, [tornado fang]. This could've been a must buy, include MM 1-10 (MM8 the Saturn version) + MM&B, Battle & Chase, MM Soccer, maybe one of those JP exclusive games (Rockboard for example) as like a silly bonus (Super Adventure Rockman would be out of the question obviously.)

Tossing it on 3DS was a dumb move especially since you can get 1-6 on there already but the porting job is already done I guess and porting over 7 and 8 without emulation has proved to be too difficult for them before (as in, they hired a company that didn't do a very good job because MM7 lost its ending sequence and MM8 had a bunch of little issues on the AC.)

And you know what? I'll probably still end up buying it like I did that atrocious Pac-Man Museum on PC (Another collection that screams missed potential.)

It's not that hard. If Konami [parasitic bomb] out an HD version of MGS: Peace Walker, then Capcom can do it for Legends.

Yes, but Konami knows MGS is pretty much its only money-maker and Peace Walker was made for the PSP so they probably just wanted more people in the US to be able to play it without a portable Playstation console.

Legends is not nearly the same for Capcom, and that requires effort on their end. We all know how Capcom feels about effort with Megaman right now.

Same for Sega with the Sonic Adventure 2 HD port since they altered the Soap branded shoes adverts from the Dreamcast and GameCube version with a generic Sonic picture and NiGHTS. However from what I've skimmed on the Sonic the Hedgehog wiki the assets are dummied out in the PC version and simple file deletion can bring the Soap adverts back.

I mean, [tornado fang]. This could've been a must buy, include MM 1-10 (MM8 the Saturn version) + MM&B, Battle & Chase, MM Soccer, maybe one of those JP exclusive games (Rockboard for example) as like a silly bonus (Super Adventure Rockman would be out of the question obviously.)
This right here is how it should be done. Although I'd prefer if they include a translated version of the original Japanese Battle & Chase since the other versions cut all of the in-game commentary and voice overs.

Post by: Satoryu on June 09, 2015, 12:31:47 AM
Complaining about this existing is just stupid. Rereleasing old games digitally is standard practice for every company, not just Capcom. It's a convenience if you don't have one of the other versions or don't want to have to swap consoles to play them. $15 for the six games is a bargain; buying all 6 on Virtual Console individually costs twice as much. And they're at least doing something new with them, tiny little features that don't detract from the originals.

Now if this happened a few months ago, I would've been skeptical. What if this turned into a similar situation to Darkstalkers Resurrection, where this is used to "gauge interest" in the property, but if it doesn't meet expectations the future is shelved. But Capcom has already shelled out the money for a new cartoon, so new games are nearly guaranteed. This is being released as a way to wet our whistles for things coming in the future.

Is it an easy option for Capcom? Of course. Is it competing with MN9? Definitely. But that's just business. And it's harmless to the consumer as well. A drop in the bucket if you want it, but if you don't that's fine.

Yeah, re-releases are standard, but games-wise, Capcom's barely done anything of note for MM. It's hard to get excited about yet another compilation that, right now, feels like a slightly gimped MMAC.

Honestly, even if they couldn't get the original Mega Man 7 and 8 in there, it'd be kinda cool to see their own versions of the RM7 & 8 demakes, alongside 9 & 10.

Lord knows Capcom wouldn't settle for anything other than nostalgia when it comes to Classic.

For the western market maybe, but I've had my share of enjoyment with my Japanese imports on the PS Vita recently, specially with the much more generous offerings on PS+ in Japan than the other regions, and I had tons of fun with the Senran Kagura franchise as well. But most recently, there is this MegaMan-type game on there (which was also released on 3DS) called The Legend of Dark Witch: Chronicle 2D Act (http://psnprofiles.com/trophies/3595-The-Legend-of-Dark-Witch-Chronicle-2D-ACT-/VixyNyan), and I had so much fun decimating the game and its Lunatic difficulty and got all the trophies. Such a cute game with fitting music tunes. ^^b

I looked up Digital Eclipse, (http://digitaleclipse.com/) who seem to be one of the branches of Backbone Entertainment, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backbone_Entertainment) and they've actually got quite a track record for numerous ports and games in the past. They seem to be a pretty solid company that various games and projects not quite Triple-A got outsourced to.

The way I see it, the only thing missing from the original Complete Works set, is Navi Mode (also included in MMAC), various equipment parts for MegaMan (CW4-6) and the Pocketstation functions.

On the plus side, the Database is directly translated from the CW games, but this time with upscaled HD artworks. The low-res images in CW were different as well, and some of them were filled with weird humor and other fun bits.

I like that "some" of the Challenge mode or Boss Attack stuff from CW also made it to MM Legacy, but with some new challenges as well. The Arcade music and remixed tunes from CW also made it to MM Legacy, but they only seem to play in the menus of the collection. Still, it's a good price for what you get. :3

Oh derp guess I should have checked here before posting on the other topic huh. I picked it up since I can't find my old Megaman Collecton anywhere.  8D

Edit: Games seem to run about the same right down to their Nes limitations--kind disappointing they didn't clean up the slow down or sprite flickering. I will say compared to the awful way Megaman Collection handled choosing games and menus I will give this collection props, checking music or art is simple and easy with each game having it's art available to look at from the main menu.

There is a lot of art to look at, looks like they included every piece of concept art from these games--I don't remember seeing a lot of these pieces. You can also listen to music although there doesn't seem to be any remixes outside the menus?

It's a decent collection of MM games, I would have liked to have seen Megaman 7,8,9 and 10 or at least the GB games added too--that would have made the higher price more justified but oh well. It's nice to have the six games on my steam account for easy access.

If you own Megaman Collection though I can't really recommend this.

To be fair MMAC also had more bang for it's buck in terms of content. MM1-8 plus the two arcade games. This new collection is not bad at all just feel like it was weird that they ignored the classic games after 6, not like it would have cost anymore to emulate them too.

It's 18.99 CAD here. I could get one of Sega's official Genesis emulator 10-packs for 8.50 CAD each. I'll pass.

They're not emulating games in this, though. The games are built from the ground up using a special engine. And that engine is specifically designed for NES games. To put in anything else would require a completely different framework.

It's certainly a fair criticism of the collection, I didn't mind buying it because it worked for me personally but I can imagine others who bought the games individually would be less than impressed given how much capcom charges for them on PSN,Live and virtual counsel.

Emulation or not, AC still had more content, and it was released in 2004.

the LEAST they could have done was also include 9 and 10.

or, yknow, those gameboy games theyve barely ever rereleased because "we lost the sourcecode lol"
Blue Valkyrie is totally right, effort is exactly what this collection lacks

Yeah but for whatever reason they stopped at 4 in the US and 5 in the JP releases.

Not that you could use the pocketstation (In the US at least, Vita in Japan has a thing for it) or read anything anyway.

I kind of have to agree here. It is nice that they aren't emulating, but at the same time the PS2 collection was far superior. If they ported 9 and 10 I'd buy this in a heartbeat though. Maybe add more stuff to the old ones too, like 9 and 10 had extra modes, extra characters (Protoman playable in ALL the games??? WINNING), and challenges.

There is indeed a Pocketstation app for the Japanese Vita. I haven't dug deep into it just yet, but it appears to function well by the looks of it. Create a save file from any of the Rockman games and then start using the app from there.

Seriously if I had Protoman and Bass playable in every classic game, I mean screwing continuity and all, I would have totally say it be worth it but not in this state.

Again this would really only appeal to the people who don't have the games already which at this point there are very few people who do or maybe a Let's Player to buy it on Steam so they don't have to use a capture card.  Otherwise I see very little reason for someone to buy this.

This is wrong.

Reddit Link, but basically the games are just in an NES emulator and its possible to extract the roms to play on a normal NES emulator.

Well some people are saying it could be a similar situation to how Chrono Trigger was handled on the PSOne, where inside the game disc is a ROM of the Super Famicom version that is used to pull music and graphic assets from.

Still, i'd like to see where this goes.

Reading the comments below that, it seems to be a bit more complicated than that. You can't just replace a game with any old NES rom. Most will crash the game. Only some Mega Man romhacks have gotten to work.

But yeah, at its core its just a form of emulation, and Capcom is talking it up to make it sound better. Just like Blast Processing.

Eh? Really? They claimed officially that the games were redone in a new engine.

It may be possible that it just draws data from the roms, like graphics, animation ques, music, etc, but the engine coding is new?

Don't claim to be an expert on emulation but when I played the collection I experienced slow down and sprite flickering at the same points I would have in the real games or when emulated. Seems funny they would remake them on a new engine and leave these graphical limitations in?

As if I didn't already have an incentive to get the collection cheap rather than full price...

As for the sprite flicker and such, I wouldn't mind if that was included for nostalgic purposes like how Mega Man 9 included a sprite flickering option, but why would you go through false advertising claiming these game were reworked when it's being ran through a supped-up emulator?
