One of the unforeseen, but no less pleasant, announcements from the Nintendo Direct was that the collector's edition of Mega Man Legacy Collection would come with a golden Mega Man amiibo that will unlock an additional 11 challenge levels that are exclusive to the 3DS version of the game.

That's all been cleared up lately and, unfortunately, the amiibo will be a North American exclusive. This news will likely disappoint many collectors, but all is not lost. It was also clarified that the vanilla Mega Man amiibo will still unlock the bonus stages, so Europeans won't be getting locked out of any content that North Americans are getting. Here's the tweet:
