Capcom stated a few months ago that it is doubling down on remakes, and re-releases for the foreseeable future. So it’s no surprise that today, Capcom announced two re-releases of their classic franchises Mega Man, and Resident Evil.
The Mega Man Legacy Collection will contain the original Mega Man games that appeared on the Nintendo. That means Mega Man 1 to Mega Man 6. Sadly the Super Nintendo version of 7, the PlayStation version of 8, and the digital download versions that came out a few years ago are not included.
The Mega Man Legacy Collection states that the game keeps it’s 8-bit look, but makes sure the images don’t look too bad on HD screens. You will also get challenge modes. This modes are very vague at this point, but it seems like certain sections of a level that you’ll have to beat with certain powers or in a certain time limit. You will also get the ability to unlock original artwork for the original 6 games. The Mega Man Legacy Collection will released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC this summer and the 3DS in the fall for $14.99.
The Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster is a re-release of Resident Evil 0 on the Gamecube. This version will feature updated graphics, widescreen capable, modern controls option, and even a few new modes. It is very similar to what was done with the HD Remaster of Resident Evil that was released a few months ago.
Resident Evil 0 is a prequel to the first Resident Evil. So you’ll find out what happened in the mansion before Chris, and Jill entered it. Tthe graphics upgrade does look nice, and if you’ve never played Resident Evil 0 it may be worth a purchase. The game is slated to release in early 2016, and no price has been announced.
