Another Mega Man collection may be on the way. A leak from the Korean Ratings Board Listing has shown Capcom is applying Rockman Legacy Collection 2 to be rated. Rockman, the eastern name of both the character and franchise, is celebrating his 30th anniversary this year, making it all the more fitting that a sequel to 2015's collection would be on the way.
While not officially announced by #Capcom, the listing states Legacy Collection 2 will feature Mega Man 7-10 and release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This would round out the series as the original Legacy Collection was comprised of the first six games.
The first Legacy Collection was priced at $15 for digital copies with $30 for physical copies and $50 for the 3DS edition that came with a Golden Mega Man Amiibo. With possibly less games, we'll have to wait and see if the sequel will be similarly priced.
What We Want To See Added To The Collection
It's worth noting that before the Legacy Collections, there was Mega Man Anniversary Collection in 2005 for PS2 and GameCube. It served as a celebration of fifteen years of Mega Man and included the series first eight games along with fighting games Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters. So the idea of a collection featuring more than just a handful of games isn't so far-fetched.
While it's unlikely Capcom would bring over unlocalized titles such as Rockman and Forte: Challenger from the Future or Rockman Strategy as they would require new translation efforts (but we can hope right?), hopefully Capcom will add some of these games to Legacy Collection 2.
1. Mega Man & Bass
Released around the same time as Anniversary Collection, Mega Man & Bass allowed fans to play as either the Blue Bomber or his evil counterpart Bass. Like Mega Man, Bass would also gain the abilities of defeated Robot Masters but unlike Mega Man, Bass has additional standard abilities. Bass can double jump, dash, and his buster could shoot fire in multiple directions. Not to mention playing as Bass fused with his robo-dog Treble was just awesome because you can fly through stages, for a limited time anyway.
2. The Complete Editions of 8, 9, & 10
With less games currently listed than the previous Legacy Collection, Capcom could justify the same price tag by providing the complete editions of the last three games.
For Mega Man 8, this would be the Sega Saturn version of the game that included two extra boss fights. Mega Man 9 and 10 had DLC that featured new modes and playable characters, Proto Man for 9 and Bass for 10. It would be nice if all of this is included as part package and not some DLC sold separately.
3. Mega Man: The Power Battle & Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters
As mentioned before these two games were included in Anniversary Collection. Both games allow you to play as Mega Man, Bass, and Proto Man, with The Power Fighters adding Duo from Mega Man 8. The game would play as a boss rush/fighter with all characters having unique abilities plus the weapons gained from bosses.
Players would pick the order of bosses to fight from a selection of Robot Masters from Mega Man 1-7 and keeping with series tradition, bosses would be weak to against specific weapons. Up to two players can play in a co-op mode. Interestingly, these games are considering cannon and the combinations of playable characters by the end of the game would reveal different endings. Playing as Bass actually revealed that Zero was built by Dr. Wily.

4. Mega Man Battle & Chase
A racing game that was unlock-able by completing the first three games in Mega Man X Collection. Battle & Chase has players select a racer such as Mega Man, Proto Man, Roll, Bass, Dr. Wily and even other Robot Masters. Upon winning a race players were able to gain new parts to better customize their vehicles.
5. Mega Man's Soccer
This one is straight forward, Mega Man and friends play soccer. The game features characters from the series' first four titles competing in a soccer tournament. Not much more to it but why not include the title in the collection? Interesting this game is said to have inspired the Mega Ball weapon used in Mega Man 8.
