Mega Man Zero/ZX Collection Coming to Modern Consoles Next Year

Capcom has announced a new Mega Man collection, bringing together all the Mega Man Zero and ZX games, to modern platforms. 

If you’re a Mega Man fan, or simply looking to pick up some classic games you might have missed out on, Capcom has you covered. Today, they’ve announced the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PCs (via Steam) on January 21, 2020.

Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection brings the Zero and ZX series’ challenging boss battles, fast-paced platforming, and precise combat from hand-held to full-sized screens for the first time. Nostalgic players can choose to play using the original sprite art, or they can bash some bots using the new optional HD-smoothing filters. New players looking to cut a path through the Zero and ZX series’ stories can also use the optional Casual Scenario mode to reduce each game’s difficulty, and Save-Assist system to create save points mid-mission for a more approachable narrative experience.
Players can also take a break from the action, and dive into the in-game gallery featuring over 600 pieces of original production art from each series, while listening to the music player’s complete selection of both original compositions and new arrangements. Fans of the series looking for a challenge will also be able to test their “Biometal” against the all new Z Chaser challenge mode. More details on Z Chaser mode will be revealed at a later time.

This isn’t the first time these GameBoy Advance/DS titles have been ported to other consoles, but it’s nice that gamers on the latest platforms (especially the Switch) will get the chance to enjoy these games. Whether it’s a replay or for the first time, it’s a neat bundle to see. Will you be picking this up in January?
