Mega Man Zero / ZX Legacy Collection Dashes to PS4

The blond bot brandishes his blade and Buster Shot in a six-game collection, coming this January.

Six games across two series megamerge into one giant collection! 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 the intense action of all four Mega Man Zero games and both Mega Man ZX games to PlayStation 4 on January 21, 2020.

Mega Man Zero \ ZX Legacy Collection

Way Beyond 21XX

If you’re familiar with Mega Man X, then you’re familiar with his mentor and long-time partner, Zero. Fully playable for the first time in Mega Man X4 on the PlayStation, Zero added a new angle to the classic gameplay formula of Mega Man with his close-range Z-Saber and ability to copy enemy techniques, as opposed to X’s ability to copy their unique weapon systems – a key difference in how each character played. Even after numerous adventures, Zero’s story didn’t end with the events of the Mega Man X games.

If you’re a fan of Zero or the Mega Man X games in general, you’ll want to see where Zero’s story picks up hundreds of years later, beginning with the aptly titled Mega Man Zero. Setting the stage for the revival of the legendary Reploid, join Zero, human scientist Ciel, and Resistance forces in their fight for a better future. As the events of each Mega Man Zero game unfold, you’ll learn more about the fate of old friends, such as X, and gain powerful new allies. However, along the way you’ll also cross paths with terrifyingly destructive foes like the fearsome Omega and the twisted Dark Elf.

The Resurrection of a Legend

Series fans know Zero isn’t defenseless, of course. Even hundreds of years later, Zero is still an A-Class Hunter and knows how to fight. You’ll need to bring your A-Class skills if you want to survive what’s ahead of you! While ranking was mostly for personal pride in prior Mega Man X games, Mega Man Zero introduced a new ranking system that graded you on how well you played. When you maintain an A or S rank, bosses will give it everything they’ve got and unleash powerful “EX” moves – which, depending on the game, Zero can copy once he’s defeated his foe! Unlike other Mega Man games, defeating a boss doesn’t guarantee you’ll get a new technique; you’ll need to put your skills to the test if you want to earn those abilities!

Fight for the Future

A few hundred years after the events of Mega Man Zero, humans and Reploids now live together in peace at the start of Mega Man ZX. However, a certain megalomaniac’s legacy lives on, and an old threat has re-emerged: Mavericks. When a few rogue Reploids set their sights on a couple of Transporters on a routine job, fate intervenes to set one of them on a brand-new path. Choose from two playable characters, Vent or Aile, and take on new forms with the help of mysterious living artifacts known as Biometal Model X and Model Z. It’s up to you to discover the reason for the resurgence of Mavericks and put a stop to the rise of a brand new villain who wields the nefarious Model W.

Taking place several years after the first game, Mega Man ZX Advent is a direct sequel and introduces a new pair of heroes looking to make their own mark on history while they uncover their past. With two overlapping stories to tell, join either Ashe or Grey as they discover their role as a Mega Man – someone who can megamerge with Biometals, such as Model A – to put a stop to a new threat and maybe understand just who, exactly, they were meant to be. Expanding on the first game, you won’t just gain new forms from defeated foes; you’ll be able to use the unique ability of Model A, “A-Trans,” to copy their DNA and transform into bosses on the fly, allowing you to use their unique abilities to fight enemies and explore the environment in brand-new ways. No one said it would be easy, but with a little help from your friends and the skills of fallen foes, you just might be able to put an end to the brutal “Game of Destiny,” designed to pit Mega Men against each other to discover the strongest one of them all.

Take the Edge Off

If all of that seems a bit too intense and you just want to relax while enjoying the story, Casual Scenario Mode and Save-Assist have you covered. Casual Scenario Mode offers the same core gameplay experience while powering up your character and reducing the penalty of spikes and pits from instant death to taking damage instead. In addition, Save-Assist automatically saves your game mid-mission, giving you a point to restore from if things go wrong or if you’re looking to practice a difficult section or boss. It’s particularly useful if you’re looking to keep your rank high in Mega Man Zero games! Each of these features can be turned on or off for each game, putting the power of how you want to play in your hands.

Classic Gameplay, Modern Features

There’s lots more we haven’t covered just yet, including optional visual filters, different screen ratios, and different layouts for the second display that features in ZX and ZX Advent! There’s even more to do beyond the games themselves, with an art gallery stuffed with illustrations, a music player featuring tracks from all six games, and exclusive new songs made for Zero / ZX Legacy Collection. You can also switch between multiple versions of each game (including the original Japanese releases). Of course, we can’t forget the new Z Chaser Mode that snuck into the end of the trailer – though you’ll have to wait a bit to hear more about that.

If you’re ready to dive in as soon as the collection is available, you can pre-order now for an additional selection of ten tracks to listen to in-game! The “Reploid Remixes” include six new remixes of an iconic song or theme from each game, replacing the in-game music with a brand new track made just for Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. You can also listen to an additional four tracks made specifically for the collection via the in-game music player.

  • Awesome! Zero series had some of the best enemy designs, easily. Great gameplay too, can’t wait to get this. Mega Man Forever!

    P.S. please continue remastering the Onimusha games! :]

  • As disappointed I am that it’s not a true remake. (Marverick Hunter X for example) I’m glad someone else will enjoy these games for the first time and maybe, someday when someone asks what my favorite series is?

    I can go “MegaMan Zero” and instead of “Who?” I’ll get it a “Oh yeah! Those games were awesome!”

  • LionAlliance

    Ahhh Thank you for this! I love the MegaMan Zero series! Will definitely get it!

  • Dream_Hero_Nemo

    Played the crap out of these games back on GBA and DS, really looking forward to buying this on PS4 and Switch.

  • Platinum trophy please!! Day 1 physical

    Thank you for making this ‘Legacy Collection’ game.
    Given that these were on GBA and DS, I never had a chance to play it and it’s great that it’s all coming to the PS4 on disc in 1 bundle.
    I hope these have Japanese voices and have the cut scne

    I hope we get more ‘Legacy Collection’ games andn other remasters soon as well including:

    Mega Man Legends Legacy Collection
    – Mega Man Legends
    – Mega Man Legends 2
    – Misadventure of Tron Bonne

    Oh and please make a remaster for Mega Man X Command Mission as well.

    Hopefully we also get collections for the Battle Network and Star Force series as well.

  • sushiblaster

    Can we get a new mega man battle network game ?

  • nice! I’ll finally give these games a shot. Hopefully they avoid the awful pixel scaling issues that plagues the Legacy releases of MM9-10 and MMX 1-2-3

  • Thank you! I cant wait to attack the trophies.

    I was really hoping that we could play the games with the remastered tracks as an alternative to the default soundtrack… That’s not the same as the pre-order theme but I would pay for that option…

  • WHAT-THE-SHREK

    Please release in disc i beg you capcom !

  • CrimsonDream24

    Why is no one mentioning the HORRIBLE lag that the X Legacy collection had?

    I will not be buying this simply because I fear they may lag the way the X collection does. Megaman X 1-3 were some of my favorite games of all time and the lag present in the collection made them completely unplayable in my opinion. Even going as far as eating jump inputs in platforming-heavy stages where a failure to jump equates to death.

    I would love to play these games again, but not with the risk of lag completely destroying any enjoyment.

  • SaintValtiel

    Now a Castlevania handheld games Collection doesn´t sound so farfetched, one can only dream!

  • KLEEBANKLIBAN

    My buddy and I each bought all the legacy collections and have been saying Capcom really should release all the other games as well, especially the games never brought to console. This is great news and I’d love to see every Mega Man game brought to current/next gen. I would def buy them all.

  • BlaqMagiq24

    AUTOMATIC BUY! Next up!

    Mega Man Battle Network Collection, then Legends Collection, and Star Force Collection!

    Leave no stone unturned. I will buy all of them if you make them.

  • Armored_Oso66

    “I never cared about justice, and I don’t recall ever calling myself a hero… I have always only fought for the people I believe in. I won’t hesitate… If an enemy appears in front of me, I will destroy it!”

    One of my favorites quotes from the series and I am excited for this announcement. Hopefully if it does well enough we can get a new ZX game since Advent ended on a cliffhanger.

  • Airwalkinman17

    January can’t come soon enough! Thanks Capgod!

  • Thank You again for making this happen what a dream come true

  • ROLO_ONFIRE

    Oh man, this collection would’ve been perfect for the PS Vita :'(

  • Well, I may admit, that collection is one I’m surprised about. This really looks like a fine collection Capcom brought up once again. Really hope the art galleries will hold artwork for each boss in the games, even the midbosses.

    Now, if only Sega could make that kind of collection dedicated to Classic Sonic’s adventures, both from the console and handheld days. Someone should talk to them about that.

  • AuraRobbieGlory
