Capcom has announced the Nintendo 3DS version of The Mega Man Legacy Collection is going to be amiibo compatible. If someone owns the Mega Man amiibo, they will be able to scan the figure to unlock 10 Challenge Mode levels created by fans of the series.
Said levels will be picked from a Mega Man Legacy Collection Challenge Contest which was announced yesterday via Capcom-Unity. Entries can contain up to ten sections for each custom challenge and can include content from Mega Man, Mega Man 2, Mega Man 3, Mega Man 4, Mega Man 5, and Mega Man 6.
Capcom asks that people must offer YouTube links with timestamps to indicate the beginning and ending points of areas for their challenge, note which weapons Mega Man will have access to, and label the entry as “MMLC CHALLENGE COMPETITION” when emailing it to [email protected]. Entries will be accepted until 9am PT on September 25.
The Mega Man Legacy Collection will be released on the Nintendo 3DS in 2016. The Mega Man amiibo was part of the third wave of the figures.
