Taking legendary Reploids into the far future alongside a new generation of heroes looking to carve out their own story, Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection brings intense action from all six games to Xbox One on January 21, 2020 and is available for pre-order today on the Microsoft Store!
If you missed these games the first time around, now’s a great time to catch up! On top of the six included games (Mega Man Zero through Mega Man Zero 4, as well as Mega Man ZX and Mega Man ZX Advent), you’ll be getting a ton of bonus content including galleries filled with art, a music player to listen to tracks from each game, and even a new game mode called Z Chaser!
As for the games themselves, the Mega Man Zero franchise focuses on, you guessed it, Zero. This legendary Reploid featured heavily in the Mega Man X games, but his own series takes place hundreds of years later. Zero awakes from his long slumber to aid Resistance forces against the oppressive rule of an entity known only as Neo Arcadia. It’s up to you to slash and blast your way through tough stages in order to take down challenging bosses, all while uncovering the secrets behind the disastrous events that happened hundreds of years before.
Centuries after the events of Mega Man Zero come to an end, the Mega Man ZX series introduces brand new heroes that must square off against a new, yet old threat: Mavericks – berserk Reploids that attack anything they see. As Vent or Aile, discover your ability to megamerge with a unique type of relic known as Biometal to take on new forms. Put a stop to Maverick menaces while investigating the sudden appearance of a new and dangerous enemy. In the direct sequel, Mega Man ZX Advent, a new pair of heroes looking to make their mark on history have their own stories to tell. Join either Ashe or Grey as they each discover who they are with a little help from Biometal Model A. Expanding on the first game, you won’t just gain new forms from defeated foes. You’ll be able to use “A-Trans” to literally copy their DNA and transform into bosses to use their unique abilities!
If you’re more the type that likes to sit back, relax, and enjoy a thrilling story, Casual Scenario Mode and Save-Assist have you covered. Casual Scenario Mode offers the same core gameplay experience, but powers up your character and lessens the penalty of spikes and pits from instant death to taking damage instead. Save-Assist automatically saves your game mid-mission, giving you a point to restore from if things go wrong or if you simply need a break and want to pick up where you left off. Both Casual Scenario Mode and Save-Assist can be turned on and off for each game, putting the power of how you want to play in your hands.
There are lots of additional features, too, including optional visual filters (including the original pixel graphics), multiple dual-screen layouts for ZX and ZX Advent, and a few other enhancements.
There’s a lot to look forward to when Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection brings all six of these great games to Xbox One! As an added bonus, you can pre-order now for an extra ten in-game tracks via the “Reploid Remixes,” allowing you to swap out six in-game tracks for high-energy remixes and adding an additional four tracks to the game’s music player. Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection arrives on January 21, 2020!
