Capcom TV played an hour or so of Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 (Rockman Classics Collection 2) this morning on stream (15:16 mark). We get a pretty good look at MM7 and MM8, menus and Museum Mode. Overall the games look as good as you remember - however, there is some subtle motion blur going on. I believe it's due to the quality of the stream, not MMLC2 itself. As you'll see, the subsequent Monster Hunter gameplay is just as blurry.
That aside, some additional details were discussed on stream, too. You'll find those points - and a couple more observations - after the jump!
- You can fight any Robot Master from MM7-MM10 straight from Museum Mode for practice.
- Each game has four different borders (can be turned off), wide screen support and an optional smooth filter.
- "Challenges" includes over 70 remixed stages across all four games.
- All games include a special mode to cut damage in half. Enemies won't be weaker, but the damage they deal to Mega Man has been decreased 50%.
- All games are in stereo by default - you can no longer toggle mono/stereo on MM7's title screen, for example.
- Mega Man 8 is indeed the PlayStation version. FMVs remain compressed. The opening animation uses the borders on the left and right for widescreen magnification.
- "Game Information" has been removed from MM8. This was previously a Japanese-exclusive feature containing a trailer for Battle & Chase.
Further, a Capcom rep relayed the following information to me:
- For Mega Man 8, the team felt it important to use the initial release version of the game, so the PS1 version is included in this collection.
- Versus mode from Mega Man 7 is included.
- There are no plans for a Nintendo Switch version at this time. Right now Capcom are focused on developing the game for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
I have a few more questions I'm waiting to hear back on, too. Stay tuned!
