Believe it or not we're still a good two months away from Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection's launch. So to curb any hunger pangs you might be feeling, here's roughly 10-minutes worth of new gameplay footage from Capcom TV.

The first five minutes show off the game's different menus, filters and screen layouts. You can actually adjust the opacity of the bottom screen display! The back half is devoted to Z-Chaser Mode with two Capcom TV hosts racing against each other in Mega Man Zero 1. It's a fun match from start to finish.

Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection dashes to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC on January 21st, 2020.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 at 1.4M Units, MMLC1+2 at 2M, Says Tsuchiya


Hot on the heel's of yesterdays' news that Mega Man 11 sold a million copies, Mega Man franchise producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya took to Twitter to share updated sales figures for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1&2 and Mega Man Legacy Collection 1&2.

"Mega Man 11 shipped 1 million units worldwide," declared Tsuchiya. "And ... MMX Legacy Collection 1&2 total reached 1.4M units, MM Legacy Collection 1&2 total shipment is 2M units. Thanks for your awesome support! May the Blue Bomber be with you."

As one can expect, support and words of congratulations from fans and Capcom staff poured in. The whole thread is worth a read. It'll make your blue bomber heartstrings sing!

Now, it is worth pointing out that, at the time of this writing, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 and Mega Man Legacy Collection 1+2 do not appear on Capcom's Platinum Titles despite moving 1.4 million units and 2 million units, respectively. Tsuchiya hasn't commented on it yet, but speculations suggests that the collections are being considered separate SKUs.

The X Legacy Collection was sold separately in some territories (as Rockman X Collection 1 and Rockman X Collection 2) and therefore the 1.4 million units is a *combination* of the two. It's a similar situation with Mega Man Legacy Collection 1+2. We know for a fact that, as of September 2019, Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 sold 1.1 million units. Legacy Collection 2, meanwhile, didn't come close but together with MMLC1, the cumulative figure is 2 million units.

Phew! Okay. That was a lot of numbers. tl;dr, Mega Man is doing very, very well and all of this bodes well for the future. Good job everyone!

Mega Man 11 Reaches 1 Million Units Sold!


With a little over a month before we start celebrating Mega Man's 32nd anniversary, we just got the best early present possible. Capcom updated their Platinum Titles list (games that sold a million or more units) and, finally, Mega Man 11 has reached the one million units sold milestone! Mega Man 11 was released on October 2nd, 2018 and it took a little over a year to join the exclusive Platinum list.

Mega Man 11 joins other games in the franchise that have sold a million or more units: Mega Man 2, Mega Man Battle Network 4, Mega Man X1, Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man 3. Sales of Mega Man 11 helped push the franchise to a total of 35 million units back in May 2019. Overall, the franchise has seen a growth of 2-3 million units between June 2018 and November 2019.

Back in February of this year, we reported that Mega Man 11 sold approximately 870,000 units and the Mega Man X Legacy Collection sold a total of 920,000 units since the later launched in July 2018. Surprisingly enough, it was Mega Man 11 who reached the one million units sold milestone first. We can only hope the Mega Man X Legacy Collection joins it soon!
