About Mega Man Legacy Collection

Mega Man Legacy Collection is a celebration of the 8-bit history of Capcom’s iconic Blue Bomber. The game features faithful reproductions of the original six Mega Man games (Mega Man 1-6), plus new ways to experience the classic games with Museum Mode and new Challenge Mode. Challenge Mode remixes gameplay segments from all six games, with scaling difficulty objectives for experienced players to conquer yet serving as a good starting point for new players, too. Museum Mode contains a comprehensive collection of production art and original concept sketches– a mega treat for any fan of Mega Man and video game history.
