Description

Celebrate 15 years with Mega Man! This compilation edition of the Blue Bomber celebrates Mega Man 1-8, as well as two arcade games that were never before released in America (Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters). Each game in the series follows Mega Man as he and his robot dog Rush (introduced in the third game) battle against Dr. Wily and his robot henchmen. Each game is presented in their entirety, with an optional "Navi Mode" to change the user interface to closer match Mega Man 8. As players complete the games, new unlockables will become available, revealing history and artwork of Mega Man's past adventures.

Trivia

Version differences

  • The Xbox release of this collection gathers the Anime episode and remixed soundtracks from the PlayStation 2 release and the interview clip from the GameCube release, and puts them into one console version, making the Xbox version of Mega Man Anniversary Collection the most complete of the three console versions.
  • The Anime episode is different between the PS2 and Xbox versions. The PS2 version uses the first episode of the Ruby-Spears produced Mega Man series. The Xbox version uses the first episode of the Mega Man NT Warrior series.
