Capcom Unity had quite the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection update. In addition to a second look at new art being created by Capcom’s Keisuke Mizuno, six of the over 20 minigames that will return in the compilation have been confirmed. Some of the Mega Man Zero 3, Mega Man Zero 4, Mega Man ZX, and Mega Man ZX Advent extras have been detailed.
First, the artwork from Mizuno has both the sketch and line art versions available. They show Zero in both Mega Man X and Mega Man Zero. Mizuno has done Mega Man illustrations and character designs for games like Mega Man Battle Network 5, Mega Man Star Force, Mega Man 9, and Mega Man 10, as well as games like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. The finished version of this piece will be in the game’s gallery.
As for the games, Capcom offered the following official descriptions for the six confirmed minigames in Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection.
MEGA MAN ZERO 3
As Copy X, you’ll be using thunder, fire, and ice elements in a pseudo-puzzle game. Use Copy X’s element-based shots to destroy panels on a conveyor belt. Seems simple enough, but you’ll have to remember which element is weak to which and change elements on the fly.
The most elusive of Neo Arcadia’s Four Guardians steps out of the shadows for this one. You’ll need to make some nimble jumps from one shuriken to the next to reach your goal. The shuriken move, so watch where they are and make each leap count!
MEGA MAN ZERO 4
This game is particularly unique. Armed with only a lamp light, you’ll need to maneuver a Scrap Elf (an enemy from Zero 4) into a beam of light on the other side of the stage. It seems simple enough, but you’d be surprised how slippery your target can be! You’re under a strict time limit, so take care in how you move through the stage.
In this challenging mini game, you’ll have to hot foot it across three separate platforms and put out rising flames. While you’ll earn bonus points for putting out fires before reaching the top, you can also lose time if you don’t keep your cool – literally! Avoid the flames and the lava below, and go for a high score.
MEGA MAN ZX
This mini-game makes an appearance in the Area C-2 game room after you’ve completed the game. While it looks deceptively simple and can be a bit daunting at first, you’ll need to pair the falling jewels with a matching color beneath them. Give it a few rounds and you’ll be smashing jewels and enemies in no time!
MEGA MAN ZX ADVENT
Think you know everything there is to know about ZX Advent? This quiz will challenge how well you know the characters with three quiz types: the Zoom quiz, the Silhouette quiz, and the Gap quiz.
Over 20 minigames will be in the full collection. As a reminder, Mega Man Zero 2 had three multiplayer minigames, Mega Man Zero 3 had seven minigames, Mega Man Zero 4 had seven minigames. Mega Man ZX had four minigames, and Mega Man ZX Advent had four minigames.
Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 25, 2020, and preorders come with ten Reploid remixes. In addition to these minigames, it will have the Mega Man ZX game link feature content.
