    Yay Mega Man, but will it support the features available on modern emulators? I know some will say "but you have the codes for progress!", but we're talking about 2015 here with saving a standard. Also no games for the Wii U announced (though Mega Man is coming to 3DS in the winter).

    Let's hope the emulation they use for the collection won't suck this time like it did on the Anniversary Collection (reversed button mapping and bad sound quality) ;)

    A lot of people are upset over the MM Legacy Collection because it's only 1-6, where the anniversary collection had a lot more to offer. I personally don't see how they can advertise it as converted to 1080p either. I get the original was programmed for tube TV's and such, but they've been porting these games for the past 25 years already, and there's nothing to be said about an 8-bit game looking good in "stunning 1080p HD".

    Either way, it's good to see the 3DS is finally getting an official port of these games in some fashion.

    Hmm not sure
    While it is cheap and controls will be better it comes at the price of less games then anniversary and emulators.

    Think ill stick to using my android to play the classic mega man for now

    Same, and besides, I have most of these games already on the eShop and my Nexus 7 tablet. Well, still more games than that joke of a 25th Mario Anniversary Collection :creep:

    My NES is fucked so I'll stick to emulating the NES classics. Nestopia is my preferred emu.(unofficial version, 1.46 from sometime last year)

    Right, and the Anniversary Collection used shoddy emulation, Nestopia is far superior than the emulator they used.
    Well that sucks, emulation is just easier to do lol.

    Well generally speaking anniversary games use inferior emulators or ones that aren't as good due to multiple reasons but I would be good if the actually ported them

    So, no new Megaman games yet and no physical release.

    If this Mega Man collection has a proper save system (not savestates; real saving between stages to replace passwords) it'll be an instant buy for me. If it doesn't, it'll be a non-buy for me.

    Nnnngh... nope sorry, trying to be excited but just can't. Megaman? Big deal... as if we've not played those to death already. Should've whapped all 10 in for a start. Challenge mode I'll keep an eye out for though.

    RE0 & DMC4? 'Yay' more remasters! Not in my opinion the greatest games ever, or indeed the best in their respective series's either, not interested in the slightest!

    Street Fighter V though, now you're talking!! :D Little bit of shine taken off this for me though recently: I grabbed the PS4 version of Ultra SFIV thinking it'd be the ultimate version. Jesus wept....

    Too little, too late.
    I'm a big Mega Man fan (I'm even working with Blyka's Mega Man Engine in Game Maker right now) and at least they could have included MM9 and MM10 as well. This is just some sort of game an emulator and a few modders could have done for free.
    Sorry, Crapcom, but I won't buy this, especially because the 3DS version takes so long.

    Eh I might pirate the 3ds collection when it comes out, I haven't really played the megaman games.
    Maybe they should try making some new games or something.

    They got a new producer for all things Megaman, and this is the result? No wonder so much money went into Mighty Number 9. Capcom doesn't seem to get it.
