Capcom announced today that Mega Man Legacy Collection has a firm release date. On August 25, the collection of Mega Man’s NES entries will be $14.99 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in digital formats. In early 2016, the 3DS will get a release of the game, alongside a physical release on that platform as well as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No firm release dates are available for physical versions right now.
The Legacy Collection gets you the six NES games optimized for HD displays with redrawn sprites, plus high-resolution artwork. The physical release will be $29.99, so hopefully some nice bonuses are thrown in – and with this release date, it also puts Mega Man in direct competition with Mighty No. 9 as well. Early 2016 is going to be an excellent time for action-platforming fans with these releases.
