Mega Man Bundles Available on Steam Sale

Decades after its launch, Mega Man continues to be a beloved side-scrolling action platformer. Its popularity has resulted in numerous sequels and spin-offs. Currently, Capcom is offering all the games in the Mega Man X and Mega Man Zero series, along with other titles, for only $30 on Steam as part of their end-of-summer sale.

Over the past eight years, the Japanese publisher has released “Legacy” collections that bring together all the games, providing convenient access with decent emulation and minimal latency. Although not flawless, especially considering the price, it's an excellent opportunity to dive back into the thrilling arcade-style robot action.

For those who are unfamiliar with Mega Man, the games follow the adventures of the blue bomber as he navigates futuristic 2D stages, defeating evil robots, avoiding spike pits, and overcoming other hazards. The central concept involves absorbing the unique powers of each boss upon their defeat. Mega Man X adds to the formula by introducing dashes, melee attacks, and enhanced abilities. The Zero/ZX games, on the other hand, offer a remix of the franchise for the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS, incorporating RPG-lite mechanics and more story elements.

The collections are divided into two parts but are currently bundled together on Steam for only $30, including Mega Man 11 from 2018. Additionally, some of the games are on sale for the PlayStation 5, allowing players to acquire every Mega Man and Mega Man X game for just $40. The Zero/ZX collection is also available for only $10 on the Nintendo Switch. If you prefer a less overwhelming experience, starting with the first half of the Mega Man and Mega Man X collections for $16 will give you access to the four best games: Mega Man 2, 3, X, and X2.
