The Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be released on August 8th. Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 are getting their first remakes. Mega Man has more worthy games to be remade for current consoles. I want to discuss great Mega Man games that need to be remade in high definition. There are some really good games without a second release. It is an injustice for these amazing games to have never seen additional remakes. I can sit and play these games for hours non-stop. My list only includes my personal favorite games from the franchise.
Mega Man X: Command Mission
My favorite game in the Mega Man franchise is Mega Man X: Command Mission. It is the only traditional RPG game for Mega Man. X, Zero, Axl, and their new allies battle the Rebellion Army. This is the franchise’s most underrated game. The battle system is fun and keeps players engaged in the action. My favorite feature in the battle system is the Hyper Modes! Your party’s members can transform into more powerful forms! The graphics are pretty good in a style similar to anime. I think the anime style works for a series such as Mega Man. The game would look even better in modern graphics.
The game is not every long. I can beat it in under ten hours if I rush through every stage. There is a total of ten chapters. A remake could add a few more chapters. More character development in new chapters can be given Steel Massimo, Cinnamon, and Marino to strengthen their characters. We can finally have answers to Spider’s past if he existed before Redips.
Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge
Mega Man made his debut on the Game Boy in 1991. Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge is one of the most difficult games on the handheld console. Only hardcore players can handle a game with difficult stages. I remember playing this game as a kid and struggled to reach every boss’s room. There were intentions to remake the entire series from the Game Boy to the Game Boy Advance, but the game was never made for unknown reasons. I might just play it this weekend to see if my skills are still up to par!
Mega Man Soccer
Did you know Mega Man entered the world of soccer before Mario? That’s right! Mega Man stepped onto the field on the Super Nintendo Entertainment system in Mega Man Soccer. Mega Man and Proto Man battled Dr. Wily and his robot masters in intense soccer games. I Have never played this game. It is very difficult to find in local stores. A remake is justified for any future installments of the Mega Man Legacy Collections.
Mega Man Battle Network 2
My first entry to the Battle Network series was Mega Man Battle Network 2. I saw the game advertised in an issue of Nintendo Power. The game’s unique style and appearance for a Mega Man game intrigued me. Lan, Mega Man.EXE, and their classmates battle the net mafia Gospel. Every boss plays a major role that leads to the finale against the leader of Gospel. You are constantly progressing through a huge world on a long quest and many side quests along the way.
Mega Man Legends
Many players consider Mega Man Legends as the most underrated game in the franchise. There are many good reasons behind their strong opinions. Mega Man Volnutt became the third Mega Man in the franchise and the first Mega Man to appear in a 3D game. I love the cast of characters. The voice acting is decent for a game from its era. It is a huge improvement from Mega Man 8. Players can explore Kattelox Island. There are many secrets to the found.
This is the perfect Mega Man title to remake on modern consoles. Capcom can test their potential customers for a new installment. Fans can finally show their desires for a third installment to the series by buying the game. I want Mega Man Legends 3 to be released one day. Could this be the key of reviving the series?
The Final Word
I hope all of these Mega Man games will one day be remade. An awesome remake may be what the franchise needs to get back on top of the video game industry. This has the potential to spark interest in the fading franchise. Let me know which games that you want to be remade! I want to hear your feedback.
