Game publisher CAPCOm recently released new information about the upcoming video game Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection.
Zero/ZX Legacy Collection new details
are two new features that will be included in this new version. These are Bonus
Cards and Link Mode.
the full details here:
Tracking your activities throughout the collection, ZZ
Cards are perfect for completionists and a great way to check your
accomplishments as you play through the Zero and ZX games or Z Chaser. They serve a
unique purpose in Mega Man Zero 3,
too. A little back story, first: The Game Boy Advance had a unique attachment,
the e-Reader, which Mega Man Zero 3
could use to scan in cards and unlock various modifications that changed the
game in distinct ways. Some of them were cosmetic, like modifying the game’s
title screen, changing the weather at the resistance base, or modifying the
look of buster shots, while others could add unique NPC dialogues or new rooms
to explore. There were even a few that powered up weapons in Zero’s arsenal!
These modifications were also included as an unlockable
feature in the Western release of Mega Man Zero Collection
on the Nintendo DS. With Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy
Collection, we’re re-introducing them as Bonus Cards, tied to the
ZZ Cards that unlock as you play. It would spoil the fun to tell you exactly
which ZZ Cards are tied to which Bonus Cards, so we’ll leave that for you to
discover. No matter the platform you play on, you’ll be able to check your ZZ
Cards to see what you’ve accomplished along the way.
There’s another feature we’re bringing back that used to
require original hardware, as well. For old-school players who remember playing
Mega Man ZX on the Nintendo DS, you might remember that inserting Mega Man Zero
3 or Mega Man Zero 4 into the Game Boy Advance slot before powering on the
console would unlock optional boss battles against Mutos Reploids hailing from
each game. I’m happy to confirm that this functionality returns via Link Mode,
allowing you to “Link” either Zero 3 or Zero 4 when you start Mega Man ZX to access
these throwback throwdowns!
When you set Link Mode to Mega Man Zero 3, you’ll be able
to take on:
And if you set it to Mega Man Zero 4, prepare to square
The upcoming video game collection will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. It will be released on January 21, 2020.
