Preserving The Blue Bomber's History

about X hours ago from

We got our hands on the impending nostalgia overload Mega Man Legacy Collection at E3, and today Capcom has shared even more about the game. Challenge Mode will have over 50 trials for Mega Man to overcome. As confirmed before, these challenges will have leaderboard and replay support. Nabbing the bronze medal or higher is the only way to unlock more.

Capcom also shed some light on why Mega Man 7 and Mega Man 8 are not included in the collection. Developer Digital Eclipse is focusing on the first six 8-bit titles because of their visual and design similarities. Mega Man 7 and 8 would require much different processes to preserve in the same way, Capcom claims. Digital Eclipse isn't just emulating Mega Man 1 through 6, but using original assets to "rebuild" them. Therefore, some flicker and slowdown caused from the source code will remain, while hardware-level glitches will be eliminated.

Mega Man Legacy Collection has filters that recreate the visual quirks of old televisions. There are also three display options. "Full" is how the game was presented at E3, with the original aspect ratio stretched vertically. The "original" setting is just the "sharpest possible image that maintains the original game's intended aspect ratio" according to Capcom. The Legacy Collection will include a 16:9 stretch mode as well.

Update: The new game from the creator of Neverending Nightmares, the sort-of-sequel Devastated Dreams, is now accepting pledges on Kickstarter.

The tiers are fairly straightforward offering alpha and beta access to the game as well as digital copies, but the higher tiers offer incentives like the ability to name the game's protagonist for $5,000, or $10,000 to rent the game's creator Matt Gilgenbach for a day. You can check out the Kickstarter campaign here.

While that may hint at a free-to-play model, Rodeo prefers to release its games with premium pricing (up front cost). Purchase gives you access to all nine acts (approximately forty missions and fifteen hours of play).
