More Mega Man, or something else?
Mega Man Legacy Collection is the last bastion of hope for the Blue Bomber to continue to exist outside of the sleazy mobile releases Capcom has been putting out. Digital Eclipse did a great job of upholding the honor of the series, and it seems like Capcom agrees, as they aren’t done with their partnership yet.
Speaking on a podcast, Digital Eclipse’s Frak Cifaldi reminiscenced about his previous work, while commenting on the next one: “I shipped a collection called Mega Man Legacy Collection the year before last (it’s been a while), and we’ve got another one coming out soon that they’re gonna announce any day now. I don’t know when – I wish I could talk about it but it’s really cool.”
It could mean anything, and isn’t necessarily related to Mega Man. I’d love it if it was an X collection though with a Mega Man X amiibo, so we’d come full circle, and possibly get a Battle Network Collection as well as one for Star Force (Zero got a kind of sort of recent collection on DS). While very game in the series isn’t a hit, it would serve as a historical preservation of sorts, and possibly pave the way for another developer to handle a Mega Man 11, and that coveted link from the Classic to the X series we’ve been waiting for.
