Capcom gets a jump on E3, announces Mega Man Legacy Collection, Resident Evil 0 remake and moreBy Shawn Knight 8 comments
Capcom's E3 lineup won't be much of a surprise when the show rolls around next week. That's because the developer and publisher has already released details regarding much of what it plans to show off including a new collection of Mega Man remakes as well as playable demos of Resident Evil 0 and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition.
Mega Man Legacy Collection will include what Capcom calls faithful reproductions of the six original Mega Man games. It'll also feature a new Challenge Mode that remixes gameplay segments from all six games with scalable difficulty for both newcomers and Mega Man veterans. Museum Mode, meanwhile, consists of a collection of history, high-res art and other original concept pieces from the popular franchise.
Look for it to launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this summer before arriving on the Nintendo 3DS come winter.
Capcom will also allow attendees to play a demo of Resident Evil 0, a remastered version of the popular prequel to the original Resident Evil. For those unfamiliar, the Resident Evil 0 was launched in 2002 and delves into what really happened before the mansion incident that jumpstarted the franchise.
The remake, due out for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC early next year, will feature new HD visuals, improved sound, widescreen support and an optional modernized control system.
Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition includes the original 2008 release with three new playable characters, a Turbo Mode, a Legendary Dark Knight Mode, new costumes and other gameplay improvements. Look for it to drop on next-gen consoles and the PC on June 23.
