Mega Man X was without a doubt a game that consumed many of my gaming hours growing up and it looks like I will be jumping back into that classic line as the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 & 2 arrives digitally and at retail for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC today.
The collection includes all eight titles (Mega Man X 1-8) in the series with a ton of bonus features which include
- X Challenge Mode – Brand new multi-boss challenge mode complete with three difficulty options and online leaderboards.
- Rookie Hunter Mode – An all-new easy mode turning down the difficulty for newcomers.
- Improved visuals and options – Three visual filters to enjoy including a retro CRT simulation filter, a smooth filter for cleaner sprites or the choice to enjoy the original graphics scaled to modern screens.
- Museum of the era – Step back in time and explore the rich history of the Mega Man X series! The museum contains a huge collection of archived art, collectible merchandise, historical trailers and in-game music from each title. Also included is The Day of Σ, an animated short film exploring the beginnings of Sigma’s rebellion.
