Mega Man Legacy Collection 2
« on: April 28, 2017, 10:03:46 PM »
It's confirmed, sort of
http://www.rockman-corner.com/2017/04/mega-man-legacy-collection-2-leaked-by.html

I recall a very lukewarm reception to the original Legacy Collection due to a general lack of interest from the hardcore fans. Personally, I didn't really care because I didn't need any of those games that were all fairly popular and reasonably easy to get ahold of on their own. But the Legacy Collection 2 offers more of an incentive; retail versions of Mega Man 9 and 10 (I'm a sucker for physical media). Additionally, one game I never picked up at the time that I'm kicking myself over is the Saturn version of Mega Man 8. If that's included, that would sweeten the deal exponentially.

Furthermore, with the comments on Facebook, I'm seeing a lot of people clamoring for the Super Nintendo version of Mega Man & Bass, again that would be another exclusive that will pique the interest of the longtime fan. In addition, people are talking about the arcade games and Battle & Chase and whatnot.

I'll be interested to see what becomes of this. If it's just released as is with four games, that'd be acceptable, if a little meager. But I hope there's a little bit more added.

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

I knew I was forgetting an obscure original series game. That's another one that got stupid expensive in recent years. Like really stupid. But the fact that they left off RockBoard from the original Legacy Collection doesn't give me much hope for games that aren't part of the main series.

In order to have the SNES Rockman and Forte, they'd have to localize it. The team making this is not a localization team. It's not as easy as just transplanting the GBA script in.

It would be nice if they had both versions of Mega Man 8. As nice as the extras are on Saturn, Wood Man is a time waster in speedruns.

I hope the info is incomplete. Unless is super cheap, the collection should have more games and a release for Switch will be very welcome.

At the very least a Switch release for the first collection should be done. All of them are NES games and yet they're not on Nintendo's current console.

I'd be shocked if the Saturn MM8 was featured, but that sure would sweeten the deal, wouldn't it?

And yeah, this needs to hit the Switch.  I don't care much about LC1 since eventual VC releases are pretty much a given.  But that doesn't apply to anything that LC2 is tackling other than MM7.

In order to have the SNES Rockman and Forte, they'd have to localize it. The team making this is not a localization team. It's not as easy as just transplanting the GBA script in.
Considering that the first Legacy Collection was a recode, not a traditional emulation, I don't think that's out of the question.  Besides, um...why ISN'T it as easy as transplanting the GBA text in, other than the fact that they also have to do a title screen?  Isn't the developer red tape stuff that they have to go through for the compilation anyway?  Remember, Anniversary Collection effectively gave us a localization (even if a grossly stripped down one) of six PS1 ports.

Well, the CD database might need touching up ('douchie', anyone?). I think the normal-game text should be fine.
