Capcom Is Aware That We All Want A New Mega Man Collection, Thanks Very Much

Posted by Damien McFerran

"Those 2004 / 2006 discs are getting pretty old at this point"

Mega Man is a classic series which continues to attract a lot of interest from modern gamers — the hype surrounding "spiritual successor" Mighty No. 9 is proof of that — but outside of a few Virtual Console releases, Capcom has remained curiously reluctant to capitalise on this.

However, Capcom USA community manager Brett Elston has revealed that the company is well aware of the desire for a fresh anthology of the Blue Bomber's past exploits:

Nothing to announce or tease at the moment, but I've definitely taken note of - and passed along - the desire for a modern collection. Those 2004 / 2006 discs are getting pretty old at this point and I'd love to get those games out to a new audience - plus give people like us an excuse to play them yet again.

The "2004 / 2006" discs to which Elston refers are Mega Man Anniversary Collection and Mega Man X Collection, both of which launched on the GameCube in — you guessed it — 2004 and 2006 respectively.

Would you be willing to pay cash for a physical collection of Mega Man's adventures, or do you think that individual releases of each title make more sense in this digital age? Let us know with a comment.

I'll take a physical release over a digital just to have it on my shelf and playable on any WIi U compared with having it tied down to one console.

Capcom has a strange relationship with its Mega Man franchise. It's a strange trifecta of honoring the company's legacy, honoring the company's profitability, honoring the company's ability to expand its portfolio. And then in the end, Mega Man is squeezed out of the yearly software scheduling. Rinse repeat.

They would just cancel it and say "There was not enough interest in the game". Even if there was 300K pre-orders.

It depends on many things for me.
How does the boxart look? What extras does it bring along? Are there any achievements or unlockables that seem worthwhile? How much will it cost?
All of this would influence my decision if there were new digital and / or physical collections coming out.

I got these two collections from America for PS2. I then got X1, X2 and X3 for Super Famicom and a Japanese Saturn disc of X4 because I guess I wanted them separately (And in Japanese) because I liked 'em so much. :D This is my own kind of idiosyncrasy when it comes to game collecting though.

I would indeed like a collection like this to be released anywhere outside of America though.
I love how in the NES games, you can use the shoulder buttons to swap through items without pausing. This isn't possible on the virtual console versions of the NES games, obviously, so I definitely recommend these collections!

Megaman is pretty much dead to capcom at this point, so I would recommend them selling the ip to nintendo, just watch how gorgeous megaman looks in hd, I'm pretty sure nintendo would figure something out with him as a company asset.

I've been waiting for anything new for the megaman battle network series even if it was for the ds because I don't have a 3ds and I'm sure not a lot of ppl have bought into that or the ... 2ds.... But honestly bringing back anything except those star force versions would be just fantastic, I want my son to enjoy the games of the future also being able to know that the games I grew up with are still worth looking at again. I'm not sure what u's will do with either the megaman x collection or mmbn collection but I'm looking forward to that as well as trying out this new mighty number 9.. it may not end up being my cup of tea but I'm down for trying new things even like starforce, which was great, but it just didn't have the same nostalgic feeling as when I would play the original 9x9 side view battle zone and with the big hype of revamping old games I think for the handheld systems the hub version of megaman would bring back the great experience just like watching the show or playing through the beautiful storylines .. also as a player who hasn't been aware of megaman my whole life, I can't say that the x collection wouldn't be a better choice, but I bet either game would get just as many old viewers as it would new ones.. more so new ones which is the way to look at it. I don't mean to tell u how to do anything but I just love what this has come to and would like to see it split in every direction.

well, capcom, you also promised to release the missing VC titles soon. And ?
I dont see them. No MM II-V, no Xtreme 1&2, no MM7 or X3 no nothing.
So please, dont talk about another rerelease if you cant even get that one out.

@siconlolz yes it was, but it was basicly unplayable due to muscle memory :P The switched around the buttons (A is now shoot while B is jump) and not all games offer you to customize controlls.

I think I may prefer just being able to download the games I want through the virtual console. I'm not much of a collector so having one on the shelf is not a huge deal for me. However, if they wanted to go Super Mario All-Stars on us and include some enhanced versions of the original and earlier titles in the series and put that on a disc, they may have my attention. Or do what the Sonic compilation did on the GameCube and have some nice extras or non-Mega Man games mixed in as easter eggs...

Don't release collections, Capcom. Do more VC and new titles. And don't assume we need it right now - take the time needed to make it awesome!

Einherjar said:

@Kaze_Memaryu Well, there isnt much that could be made "awesome" since i highly doubt that capcom, of all companys, would mess with the original files.
But thanks to the BluRay media, we could finally see one big collection disc with pretty much all games on it.
But talking about capcom, i guess well rather get something in the lines of their failed arcade cabinet game...
You have to buy the disc and buy each game seperately again -.-

If you bought the Mega Man Anniversary collection on the Gamecube, you were screwed.

B & A button swap for the shmepic loony tunes lose! :P

Even if this weren't the case you were still screwed, because the GCN's d-pad was extremely stiff and micro sized, as if it were designed for a smurf. Oh wait, there's an analog stick i can use. Funk that!

Anyhoo, they need to add 9, 10, and the I-V on the gameboy for the classic Mega Man collection, and X7 & X8 for the X collection. The Wii U gamepad, classic controller or Wii remote(classic MM series) would be the perfect match for either compilation.

Let's see... I own them all on my NES, I have the Game Boy versions, I have the X series on my SNES, I have both collection sets for my Gamecube, I have all of the NES era on my 3ds, as well as 8 & 9 on my Wii. Why would I want yet another copy of these same games? Yes they're timeless... but come on already.. we don't want another rehash we want new titles. Was this not blatantly obvious at the screaming success of Mighty No. 9???????? Is Capcom run by monkeys or something? This is ridiculous

I already have Mega Man 1-4 on my 3DS, with the intention to buy the other 2 NES games, but what I'd really like to see is a port of Mega Man 9 and 10 on the 3DS, maybe even in 3D. As long as they include the DLC I won't care what they charge.

I would be full retail for an eShop release of Mega Man X collection!!!! eBay stings the hell out of buying these back individually and the Gamecube collection never saw a pal release, with the NTSC version costing a fortune.
This is a game I've wanted for the last ten years!
Please!!!!! Release mega man x collection for the Wii U!!!!!!!

@deaddiamondz I'm in the same boat as you, never really played the X collection or the other Megaman games but the BN series is something I did play and fell in love with. I really hope Keji Inafune will create a spiritual BN kind of game for Mighty No. 9, which I'm also going to buy to not only support him but to also try something new. But BN will always be near and dear to me and I'd love for it to be remastered/remade for the DS/3DS. I'd buy a 3DS for it.

Mega Man has had much collections in the past (Wily Wars, Anniversary Collection, X Collection, Zero Collection) but if Capcom really wants to give us more just release one huge physical collection with these games on it:

Mega Man 1-6 (NES)
Mega Man 7 (SNES)
Mega Man 8 (PS1)
Mega Man 9 & 10 (8-Bit)
Mega Man & Bass (SNES)
Mega Man X1-X3 (SNES)
Mega Man X3-X6 (PS1, yes I'm included both version of MMX3 so people will stop complaining)
Mega Man X7-X8, Command Mission (PS2, GameCube)
Mega Man Battle Network 1-2 (GBA)
Mega Man Battle Network 3-6 (including the various version too, GBA)
Mega Man Network Transmission (GameCube)
Mega Man Legends 1 & 2 (PS1, N64)
Mega Man Power Battle and Power Fighters (Arcade)
Mega Man I-V (Game Boy)
Mega Man GG (Game Gear)
Mega Man Xtreme 1 & 2 (GBC)
Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X (PSP)
Mega Man: Power-Up (PSP)
Mega Man Zero 1-4 (GBA)
Mega Man Chase and Battle (PS1)
Mega Man X Street Fighter (PC)

That's 50 awesome Mega Man games for us for the low price of $30 for the Wii U and PS4. Make it happen Capcom, yes all of these are only worth $30 in a collection just like how all of Sega's 40 games only worth $15.

That may sound like a lot of games but you had to remember Sega included over 40 games on its collection so with the bigger disc size we had nowadays there's no excuse to release a collection with only ten or less games on it (especially old games from ancient platforms, I'm talking about you Nintendo).

Depending on what games they are willing to include, I would get it.

And I prefer a collection of classic Megaman games from Capcom, than seeing them release a new game, possibly butchering Megaman and his legacy in the process.

dadajo said:

When I was a kid the only reason I ever got to play megaman was because my dad got me the anniversary collection on gamecube. Now after owning some on nes and the rest on virtual console I can happily say so far I have beated 4/6 games. (1 and 4 are hard for me and I never really took the full amount of time needed to beat both of those). If they ever did make a anniversary collection I would buy it and I think it would help younger children like me back in 2004 to get into retro games. The only problem is now they are available on the virtual console. But Capcom if you ever do this please make it available for the wiiu.

MAN1AC

MAN1AC said:

They've always been aware. The fanbase has been pretty vocal for some time time now.

That doesn't change the fact that we probably won't see one any time soon. The franchise indeed needed to take a break and I think Capcom got to the point where they wanted to make a new game but didn't know where to go with the next installment. They probably still dont and I dont mind them holding out until they get some good concepts instead of running the series into the ground with bad games like they've done with other IPs they own.

Also, anyone expecting the next game to be on a console will more than likely be disappointment. Believe it or not, Mega Man games dont sell very well and its a safer bet to put it on the Vita or 3DS.

New collection? Sure. But this time, ALL of the X series is older and up for grabs. 9 and 10 should be included with 1-8.
Make Legends available in some form.
Let Street Fighter's anniversary collection have shown you something and include some cool stuff. Like maybe the Battle Network / anime series. How about a feature length film in the set? Or simply a full set of all the animated portions?
Could do keychains or figures, posters or comics. Heck, could even throw in artbooks, walkthroughs or commentaries! I'd love a brand new Megaman, a brand new Megaman X or even a brand new Megaman RPG with HD graphics, sideview battles, tons of collectibles, good voice acting and dedicated animated sequences.
Megaman isn't dead Capcom, you guys just think he's on lifesupport. WRONG! He sneaks out his window and goes bustin' every night! Been doing it for years!

@shinokami
Star Force was never that popular and was mostly hated by most Mega Man fans.
Personally I enjoyed Star Force and I wouldn't mind seeing a 3DS sequel. But speaking of collections, I would buy a Classic/X collection just to show my support for Mega Man. A Battle Network Collection for 3DS would also be great.

Yes I realized Keiji Inafune quit Capcom after getting sick of their manure and started making "Mega Man" games without Mega Man on his own.

I'm ALWAYS willing to shell out for a new Mega Man Collection.

I have both the Mega Man Anniversary Collection and Mega Man X Collection on Gamecube. And I've bought every Mega Man game released thus far on Wii U and 3DS VC. But really, this guy's right. I DO want a new collection, ON DISC, for Wii U.

Just throw Mega Man 1-8, Mega Man X1-X6, and Mega Man 9/10 onto one Wii U disc and call it a day. I'm a Mega Man fan- I want the games ON DISC. I'll take them on VC as well. That way I can keep the disc release mint and just play the digital releases with full controller customization.

unrandomsam

#74

unrandomsam said:

@JaxonH If they do it I hope they do a good job of it. (They could have made it loads better last time if they supported using a GBA instead of the Gamecube controller). They don't seem to care about quality anymore. (They did when they did the ports to the Playstation - like of Super Ghouls and Ghosts they actually fixed it). If it is going to be like Chronicles of Mystara is won't be worth having for me.

JaxonH

#75

JaxonH said:

@unrandomsam

I just like the idea of having all the games on one disc. And I like the idea of it actually being on disc instead of digital. VC provides complete button customization, virtual save points and full controller support (gamepad, Wiimote, Pro Controller) so it's really hard to NOT recommend that as the way to go. But by the same token, MM fans usually want something collectible, and a physical release serves that purpose.

What would be added, though?

I guess it would be nice to have MM9 and MM10 in some kind of physical form, but those are available to download on every console. Mega Man & Bass would make a nice addition, too.

It's questionable whether it's even worth adding the two MMX games not already on that collection (particularly X7).
The MMZero collection already exists.

Maybe they should just make good on that GB collection that was supposed to be released on the GBA.

As long as they dont switch the jump and fire button like they did on the GC version I would love it.

Having a copy of Mega Man AC on Gamecube is one of the main reasons I have been wanting to find a working Gamecube.

The A & B button swap on Mega Man Anniversary for GameCube rendered the game useless. A new collection including all 10 'Mega Man' games without the button swap would be ideal. They should include the Super Famicom version (not the GBA port) of Mega Man & Bass along with that as it is legitimately part of that series.

The Mega Man X collection on my GameCube is just fine, thus making it one of the gems in my GameCube collection. Nothing wrong with it. The only thing that could make it slightly better would be to add X7, X8, and X Command, but I find those games to be a bit undesireable.

Oh, and a second spiffy set that collects Legends 1 and 2 and also finally releases a third title in that series. Basically: Capcom, I want to give you my money. Why won't you let me?

So, yeah, nintendo deserves the ip, as they are the only ones who have done anything for good ol' rock recently.

@solcross Yeah I miss that series. I've played the Starforce games on DS and they're great too. I want another Legends game, like everyone else. But maybe just another 3D Mega Man game and they won't call it "Legends". Also another Metroidvania game would be awesome! the ZX games are really fun.

I want Mighty Number 9 to go into all the gameplay genres Mega Man went through. We need a Mighty Number 9 metroidvania game and then a Mighty Number 9 3rd person shooter action RPG to replace the Legends games that will never have a conclusion. Then we need Mighty Number 9 Pokemon-like RPGs, like the Battlenetwork and Starforce games. That's the best part about Mega Man games: They had so many different series going with different gameplay and all the game series were excellent. Mega Man has tackled 2D sidescroller linear platformer (Mega Man/X/Zero), 2D sidescroler metroidvania (ZX/ZX Advent), 3D action game (Legends), full-blown JRPG (X:Command Mission), and Pokemon action RPG random battles hybrid thing (Battle Network games/Starforce game). And the best part was that all of these series felt like Mega Man. One thing Capcom did was continue each series. The problem I have with Castlevania now is that they continue a certain gameplay style for most of their games. That would be metroidvania for the DS/3DS, since Symphony of the Night, and 3D linear hack and slash for ps3 and xbox 360. Then their was 3D metroidvania on ps2 and xbox and then 3D action-adventure on N64. Now the good thing about Castlevania, like Mega Man, all of the Castlevania games are good, except Castlevania 64. But Konami's problem is that they don't stick with the multiple Castlevania gameplay style series like Mega Man did. There hasn't been an open action-adventure Castlevania game since Legacy of Darkness on n64. There hasn't been a linear platformer since Super Castlevania IV on SNES and the remake of Drakula X Chronicles. Any, Mega Man seemed to get that their are fans of all the gameplay styles, so they continued each Mega Man series. That's what was awesome about Mega Man.

@BAGBOY Ya I can agree with that. If Mega Man was given to Nintendo they might continue the Battle Network-style games, because they're probably as easy to pump out as Pokemon is. Also, the Mega Man games would be exclusive to Wii U and 3DS. Nintendo could make a 3D Mega Man game. In fact Retro Studios could make it. The first person shooter Mega Man game they were going to make actually looked really awesome. You can't go wrong with Retro Studios. Seriously, why isn't Nintendo jumping on this? If Mega Man is owned by Nintendo it could be a system seller for sure. I'm sure many people would buy a Wii U or 3DS just to play the new Mega Man games.

@retro_player_22 Oh man I would jump on that in a heart beat! I would save so much money. It's crazy how many Mega Man games there are. I mean you missed the Starforce games and ZX games. There's like 60 Mega Man games. It's ridiculous, but ridiculously awesome! Um the problem with releasing all those games, would be that a lot of those are exclusive to different platforms, so getting all those games on one disc would be hard, wouldn't it? Also, Mega Man Legends 2 goes for $60-$70 used so if Capcom knew this, I don't think they'd put it on the collection. If they did, they'd make the price of the collection like $80 or something, knowing Capcom. No, knowing Capcom, they'll release the same Gamecube games for ps4 and then these future plans for Mega Man will just be iphone apps. I really hope this doesn't happen, but this is Capcom we're talking about.

@shredmeister X7 I can agree with, but aside from those 3D sections, it's a pretty fun game. X8 is supposed to be fantastic, but I don't own it because it goes for ludicrous prices now. X: Command Mission is pretty cool because it's the first time Mega Man has been in a full blown, tradional JRPG, and you know what? It worked! It's a great game, but for an RPG it's a little short. (Only about 20 hours).
