Classic platforming action comes home! The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection brings all four games in the Mega Man Zero series along with both Mega Man ZX and ZX Advent from handheld platforms to full-sized screens for the first time.
The collection of six games dashes onto the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, the Nintendo Switch, and PC for $29.99 beginning today. The collection will be available both digitally and at North American retail locations for consoles, while PC players can purchase the digital edition on Steam.
Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection combines some of the franchise’s trademark challenging boss battles, fast-paced platforming, and precise combat. New players looking to cut a path through the Zero and ZX series for the first time can use the optional Casual Scenario mode to tackle each game’s challenges with reduced difficulty, and the new Save-Assist system to create save points mid-mission for a more approachable experience. Nostalgic fans can also choose to play using the original sprite art, or they can bash some bots using the new optional HD-smoothing filters. While exploring the open world of Mega Man ZX and ZX Advent, players can also choose from a number of screen layouts to display the original releases’ dual-screen controls.
Once players master all six games, they can jump into the brand-new Z Chaser mode. Z Chaser challenges players to compete for the fastest time across stages pulled from each game in the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. Players can hone their skills solo, race against ghost data from top performers on the global leaderboard, or take on their friends head-to-head in local multiplayer. Those interested in the history and art from each series can dive into the in-game gallery featuring over 650 pieces of original production art, while listening to the music player’s complete selection of both original compositions and new arrangements.
