Megaman X Collection Released – PS2, Gamecube

 The highly-anticipated Mega Man X Collection has finally been released here in the US. I personally suck at the games, but I know there are a lot of Megaman fans out there (hence all the games). The compilation is being released for both the PS2 and Gamecube (I guess XBox gamers aren’t much for Megaman) and follows up on the original Megaman Collection quite nicely.

It features all six of their first Mega Man X adventures and the first US release of the Blue Bomber’s racing game: Mega Man Battle & Chase. So your get a total of seven Mega Man games with remixed soundtracks, original and sketch art, and a few other goodies.

If you’re not familiar with the MMX series, if offers a more mature setting, upgradeable characters, and multiple hero selections. Whereas the traditional Mega Man line has always been about a little robot and his ability to assimilate the powers of his fallen adversaries, Mega Man X ups the ante by including things like additional suits of armor, health extensions, and various other special abilities that you never had before.

Remixed soundtracks for all 7 games? I’ve heard nothing about that. You’re thinking of the regular Megaman Collection that came out earlier. And those games only had remixes because the games had already been remixed for PS1 ports in Japan.
