After years of dormancy, the Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX games are returning in a Legacy Collection of their own Having sat inert for several years, favoured Megaman Zero and Megaman ZX titles are due to return in their very own Legacy Collection.
Checkout the new Trailer below
The announcement from Capcom came shortly after most of the information was already leaked, and it revealed the release date for the Mega man Zero/ZX Collection for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC to be January 21st 2010. According to our sources, previous Legacy collections Mega Man and Mega Man X did very well, so we are expecting these new collections to be no different.
The Legacy Collection is due to comprise of six games in total: Mega Man Zero parts 1-4, Mega Man ZX and Mega Man ZX Advent. In addition to this, a music player, artwork gallery, leaderboard and brand new Z chaser mode (from what we can gather this harnesses the power of time to attack) are to be introduced.
The Mega Man Zero games were notably hard – and for this Legacy Collection fans are treated to not only a “Save Assist” but a “Casual Scenario Mode” too, which enables players to take their time with the game, getting a chance to experience some of the story. Mega Man Zero was released on Game Boy Advance and ZX was released on Nintendo DS, but both games are set centuries after the Mega Man X titles. The games follow either Zero – swords in hand, or a host of new individuals who mutate into Zero characters using biometals. The games were famed for their RPG style power – up mechanic, and alternatively structured missions.
Mega Man ZX for the very first time gives gamers the ability to play as a male or female hero, and when playing ZX Advent players will be able to control every boss they defeat, keeping it’s metroidvania-esque structure. These nostalgic games developed by Inti Creates, were some of the firm’s earliest titles, followed by similar game series, Azure Striker Gunvolt.
Hopefully following this announcement we will eventually see complications for Battle Network and Legends, as well as new games for the series too! Until then, the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection lands on January 21st 2010, available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
