Re-live six classic platformers with Mega Man Legacy Collection on 3DS this winter

Mega Man games are a rarity these days, and when a new one’s announced, it’s often a Virtual Console re-release. While Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 garners millions in Kickstarter pledges, Capcom’s 8-bit hero has taken a back-seat, with the controversial Mega Man Legends 3 cancellation remaining a sore subject in some gamers’ eyes.

For fans that love to double-dip, or for those looking for a cheap entry point to the Mega Man franchise, Capcom will release Mega Man Legacy Collection on Nintendo 3DS late this year – following HD versions on PS4, Xbox One and PC in the summer. Continue reading

Last month, we reported that the fifth game in the Ace Attorney series would be getting an overseas release. The downside of the news being that Capcom had only a digital release in mind, while Japanese buyers would be able to get their hands on boxed copies of the game. Though this was clearly good news for Western fans of the series, many were left disappointed over the fact that they wouldn’t be able to purchase a physical release of the game. Continue reading
