Capcom recently revealed that they will be releasing a Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. The collection will include the various Mega Man Zero games and the two Mega Man ZX games. For those who aren’t aware the Mega Man Zero games were a spin off of the Mega Man X games that took place a century later. The first game in the series was released for the Gameboy Advance in 2002 and received three sequels in the following years. The game featured the return of Zero from the Mega Man X series, however the art style was drastically changed. Mega Man ZX was a spinoff of the Mega Man Zero series and took place two centuries later. Unlike Mega Man Zero, the game didn’t feature the return of Mega Man Zero as the main hero and instead focused on brand new characters.
The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection will include brand new features such as visual filters. The game will also feature a new mode called Casual Scenario Mode. In this mode the player will have extra lives, gain additional power-ups, and removes instant deaths from spikes or pits. A Save-Assist can also be implemented where the player will have the ability to save the game during missions. Both features can be turned on/ off.
The collection will include:
- Mega Man Zero
- Mega Man Zero 2
- Mega Man Zero 3
- Mega Man Zero 4
- Mega Man ZX
- Mega Man ZX Advent
Capcom provided a description for both game franchises.
“Zero… has been resurrected….”
Set hundreds of years after the events of the Mega Man X games, Mega Man Zero sets the stage for the revival of the legendary Reploid Zero as he joins human scientist Ciel and Resistance forces in their fight for a better future. As the events of each Mega Man Zero game unfold, you’ll learn more about the fate of old friends and gain powerful new allies… as well as cross paths with terrifyingly destructive foes.
Fortunately, Zero still knows how to fight, but it’s up to you to put his skills with a Buster and his legendary Z-Saber to use. You’ll need to bring your absolute “A” game if you want to stand a chance of cutting through challenging stages and difficult foes alike! With each adventure featuring a unique ranking system that can affect what attacks bosses use and even what powered-up EX skills Zero learns from his victories, it’s up to you to use familiar armaments and new, unique weapons to take down your enemies. As you progress through each game, you’ll come closer to uncovering the truth behind the ruinous Elf Wars and the dark secrets lurking within Neo Arcadia.
Mega Man ZX Advent, set several years after the events of the first ZX, sees a new pair of heroes looking to make their own mark on history. With two overlapping stories each offering different perspectives, join Ashe or Grey as they discover who they are with a little help from Biometal Model A. Expanding on the first game, you won’t just gain new forms from defeated foes – you’ll be able to use “A-Trans” to copy their DNA and transform into bosses, gaining access to their unique abilities!
The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection will be released for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC on January 21, 2010.
