Mega Man Legacy Collection coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC and 3DS

I’ve always enjoyed retro games and absolutely love it when retro games are remade or repackaged for current-gen consoles. Obviously a complete remake is better than a repackage, but there is nothing wrong with putting a new coat of paint on an absolute classic game!

Reminisce the fun days of 8-bit gaming, soon on your current gen-console. Capcom has announced the Mega Man Legacy Collection is coming this summer to the PS4, Xbox One and PC (and in winter for the Nintendo 3DS). The collection packs faithful reproductions of the original six Mega Man games in one, some additional challenges and Mega Man history.

“In addition to the six Mega Man games, Mega Man Legacy Collection features new ways to experience the classic games with the Museum Mode and new Challenge Mode. Challenge Mode remixes gameplay segments from all six games, with plenty of scaling difficulty objectives for experienced players to conquer yet serving as a good starting point for new players, too,” said Capcom, “Museum Mode contains a comprehensive collection of history, high-res art and original concept pieces – a mega treat for any fan of Mega Man and video game history.”

Can’t go wrong with the side-scrolling classic Mega Man. What retro games would you like to see revived in their classic presentation for today’s systems?  There has been loads of lists and polls of most wanted/most likely classic gaming remakes (here is an example). Honestly, any one of those games on this list would be great for a remake, but the arcade classics never get old.

Tried and true arcade games such as Space Invaders, PAC-MAN and Asteroids, in pixel-perfect form would be great to see this on today’s latest systems. Whatever your gaming wish, there is no better way to introduce today’s gamers to some fun history of video games than with some hands-on gameplay.
