Months of speculation followed Capcom's initial announcement about Mega Man Zero collection for the Nintendo DS. Further information was slow to arrive, except for a quiet delay. Outright cancellation of the title seemed a likely prospect.
But today we can safely say that the Mega Man Zero Collection lives. It even has box art and a release date. Scrounge up $29.99 USD and line up for your dose of hardcore side-scrolling action on June 3.
From Capcom's press release:
We are mega busting with joy to announce that Mega Man Zero Collection for Nintendo DS is shipping on June 8 to all retailers in North America. This exciting new release includes all four Mega Man ZERO games previously released for GameBoy® Advance on one DS cart. Mega Man Zero Collection will be available for the low price of $29.99.That muted "POOM!" sound you just heard was twentyscore Mega Man Zero fanboys combusting in rage over the very idea of an optional "easy scenario."
The first Mega Man ZERO game was released in 2002. It featured Zero, a popular Capcom character that was introduced in the Mega Man® X series. The Mega Man ZERO series follows Zero through a dark and thrilling 2D action-adventure with high-quality visuals and action. Users can expect to make use of Zero's trademarks weapons like the Z-sabor and Buster Shot. There will also be interesting devices like the Chain Rod and Zero Knuckle. For the first time, the Mega Man ZERO series will be available for Nintendo DS™, complete with all-new modes.
Whether its reliving Mega Man ZERO memories or simply feeding that 2D action craving, Mega Man Zero Collection is definitely a must-have for your Nintendo DS collection. Expect new modes like "easy scenario" which provide a much more forgiving cyber-busting experience without holding back any of the fun.
