One of the summer’s best retro releases, and best releases all around, finally has a solid launch date. Mega Man returns to the video game scene in the Mega Man Legacy Collection due for release on Aug. 25. The package will be available for $14.99 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
For those who don’t know, the Mega Man Legacy Collection compiles the first six games, the 8-bit NES classics, into a single bundle and gives them the treatment they deserve: perfect 1080p scaling, preservation of popular glitches, challenge modes, leaderboards, achievements and trophies, and a wealth of information and images throughout the series’ history.
If you have never played the Mega Man titles, let alone any of the classic ones, this is the place to finally do so. Get out there and learn your history. These are some of the most influential games ever made, and any gaming enthusiast should experience them at least once.
And that $15 price tag is no slouch either. Excellent value here! The Mega Man Legacy Collection launches on Aug. 25 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Nintendo 3DS version is expected down the line somewhere.
