Perhaps in an effort to ease the disappointment of Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 being postponed into 2016, Capcom has dated the upcoming Mega Man Collection for a release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 25.
Priced at $14.99 (£11.99 / €14.99), Mega Man Collection will be available as a digital-only download during its first few months on the market, with the publisher noting on its official blog that a physical release is planned for North America for early 2016 (there is no word of a European release at this time). This would put the physical release in line with the 3DS version, as Capcom won’t be porting the definitive Mega Man Collection onto Nintendo’s handheld until 2016.
Bundling together first 6 numerical entries in the long-running series, the Mega Man Collection gives Capcom’s half-dozen platformers a new lick of HD paint, all the while retaining their old-school 8-bit charm. Beyond that, fans can expect the addition of online leaderboards, a revamped soundtrack and the ability to alter the aspect ration to suit more modern displays.
Mega Man Collection will bring the famed Blue Bomber to a new generation when Capcom’s compilation debuts for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 25. The 3DS version, on the other hand, won’t grace Nintendo’s handheld until the early stages of 2016.
