List of gamesEdit

GameplayEdit

ChangesEdit

  • The dual-screen controls from Mega Man ZX and Advent are back. The players now have the option to position on the screen to where they prefer in seven separate configurations.
  • Akin to Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2's Rookie Hunter Mode, the game presents a Casual Scenario Mode, which, among other changes, prevents players from dying upon falling into bottomless pits.
  • The game presents a new Save-Assist feature, which puts extra checkpoints that function as save states along stages. This allows players to retry and practice difficult sections and bosses.
    • The Casual Scenario Mode and the Save-Assist feature can be turned on or off independently of each other.

ExtrasEdit

  • An illustration gallery and music player in the same style as the one from both Mega Man X Legacy Collection titles.
  • The "Z-Chaser" mode, a new time trial-type challenge, have a difficulty level setting from lowest to highest: B, A, S, Z, and ZZ.[3]
  • Much like with Mega Man X through X6 in the Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 releases, graphics in this collection for the Zero and ZX games can also be adjusted with HD filters.

Pre-Order BonusEdit

For players who pre-order this collection, they can get free DLC for ten new music tracks, where six are one from each game which is a remix of one of the tracks from each game. The rest are four bonus selections, which are only accessible in the Music Player.[4]

TriviaEdit

  • This marks the first time mainline games from two different Mega Man series are included on the same disc/cartridge as a collection.
    • Additionally, this is the first collection to include two different Mega Man series in their entirety (as of the collection's release).
    • While Mega Man X Collection did include Mega Man: Battle & Chase from the classic Mega Man series, the latter is a spin-off and was included as a bonus as opposed to being a main component of the collection.
  • This is the first time the Zero and ZX series will be released on a different platform that is not from Nintendo; the Zero series were originally released on the Game Boy Advance and later on the Nintendo DS in the form of Mega Man Zero Collection as well as the Wii U as part of the Nintendo e-Shop's Virtual Console, and the ZX series was originally released on the Nintendo DS.
  • This is the third Mega Man collection with the word "Legacy" in the title.
  • This is the second time a collection featuring the Zero series offer easier gameplay for inexperienced players, the first was Easy Scenario from Mega Man Zero Collection.
    • This is also the second Zero series title to include an art gallery as an extra, after Mega Man Zero Collection.
