Mini-Games and New Illustration Added to Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection


Some days ago a new piece of art by Keisuke Mizuno was teased by Rockman Unity, whose purpose wasn't exactly clear. Now it turns out that the finished colored version will appear in the "Gallery Mode" of the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection alongside more than 650 pieces of artwork and concept art.

Furthermore, via all of the official channels, it has been announced that the mini-games from Mega Man Zero 3, Mega Man Zero 4, Mega Man ZX and Mega Man ZX Advent will be included in the collection.

More details after the break!


Below you can read the official description of the mini-games revealed today:


MEGA MAN ZERO 3
Copy X

As Copy X, you’ll be using thunder, fire, and ice elements in a pseudo-puzzle game. Use Copy X’s element-based shots to destroy panels on a conveyor belt. Seems simple enough, but you’ll have to remember which element is weak to which and change elements on the fly.


Hidden Phantom

The most elusive of Neo Arcadia’s Four Guardians steps out of the shadows for this one. You’ll need to make some nimble jumps from one shuriken to the next to reach your goal. The shuriken move, so watch where they are and make each leap count!


MEGA MAN ZERO 4

Elf Chase

This game is particularly unique. Armed with only a lamp light, you’ll need to maneuver a Scrap Elf (an enemy from Zero 4) into a beam of light on the other side of the stage. It seems simple enough, but you’d be surprised how slippery your target can be! You’re under a strict time limit, so take care in how you move through the stage.


Lava Surf
In this challenging mini game, you’ll have to hot foot it across three separate platforms and put out rising flames. While you’ll earn bonus points for putting out fires before reaching the top, you can also lose time if you don’t keep your cool – literally! Avoid the flames and the lava below, and go for a high score.

MEGA MAN ZX


Energy Converter

This mini-game makes an appearance in the Area C-2 game room after you’ve completed the game. While it looks deceptively simple and can be a bit daunting at first, you’ll need to pair the falling jewels with a matching color beneath them. Give it a few rounds and you’ll be smashing jewels and enemies in no time!

MEGA MAN ZX ADVENT


Quiz Advent

Think you know everything there is to know about ZX Advent? This quiz will challenge how well you know the characters with three quiz types: the Zoom quiz, the Silhouette quiz, and the Gap quiz.



As reminder, Mega Man Zero 3 included 7 mini-games, Mega Man Zero 4 included another 7 mini-games, Mega Man ZX  included 4 mini-games, and Mega Man ZX Advent just 3 mini-games [among them the fan favorite Mega Man a (ancient)].

  1. I wonder if we'll still have to go through hoops and hurdles to unlock the Zero 3 minigames, or if they'll simplify the unlock conditions to maybe just beating the game once.

  2. Good to know they will be present, but I'm more concerned about the MMZ2 minigames, which were cut from the DS collection. But considering Z Chaser, I suppose they will be in, and the multiplayer ZXA minigame too.

    Other think I'm curious about is if there will be a way to change Z3's cyberspace to have MMBN enemies.
