IGN Goes Hands-On With Mega Man Zero Collection

IGN has posted up a preview for Mega Man Zero Collection and while it pretty much covers everything we've known for quite some time, it does include some spiffy new screenshots.

The article goes on to confirm that the bottom screen will primarily be used to display relevant artwork during gameplay:

"Because these are all GBA games, the bottom screen goes completely unused. It shows some nice artwork wallpaper of the game's characters, though. And the wallpaper changes as you progress through the game. Each new one you see gets unlocked to a gallery that you can browse later."

For more details, read the full report here.  Thanks, Klavier Gavin.


  1. Like I said before... Although it's not exactly my top priority, I'm actually considering buying this. I guess it's mainly because I'm a sucker for collection games like this. Games like Super Mario All-Stars are to blame for that.

  2. 5 x 16 = 80 cards, I wonder if that means they dropped the 20 Story cards or if they simply have them in a different menu, since unlike the others they don't change anything in the game itself.

  3. "The other cool thing about the collection is the DS exclusive features. Players can unlock extras like the dialogue and sprite swaps, so that the game can be slightly altered. It's definitely something more for hardcore fans, but it's a cool little incentive for playing the game multiple times through."

    New dialogue? Sprite swaps? What?

  4. Anon 1: It's the image gallery, not the e-reader cards. The # order is different from the cards and the first picture isn't in any card. They gallery and card menus may be different.

    Anon 2: I guess it's talking about the card modifications from Zero 3. Some of them change the dialogue of Resistance members and change sprites, like making Andrew younger and changing the color of Alouette's clothes.

    Details of the e-reader cards:

  5. @Anon -

    I'd take anything that yahoo says with a grain of salt. As with most gaming-related articles on IGN, the editor seems to be pretty ignorant about the game he's covering, coining Zero as the hero who "went on to star in the Mega Man ZX Advent games."


    Given crap like that, I wouldn't trust anything this guy says about Zero Collection's features.

  6. Darn it. Looks like there will be a black bars to keep it in the same ratio as the GBA version. Oh well. Can't wait till 6/8 still!
