Capcom Unity Plays Mega Man Legacy Collection at E3 2015

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Time for a different company's live stream to see how the other side lives.

Did you know that Nintendo is not the only company constantly live-streaming their product offerings this E3 2015? The good folks at Capcom Unity are also doing that, though there wasn't anything that they did not already announce ahead of time.

So today we have Capcom Unity's Gregaman and Mega Man Legacy Collection producer Rey Jimenez. They are obviously talking about Mega Man Legacy Collection, which is a compilation of future-proofed ports of the NES Mega Man games (1-6) along with challenges, art, and a few other stuff. For context, there was a Mega Man Anniversary Collection over a decade ago with Mega Man games 1-8 plus two arcadey games Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man: The Power Fighters. So... a lot of people feel that Capcom is not doing a good job here, and we can see that in their stream since the Capcom guys respond to questions!

I'm Nintendork 13 13, and Rawk makes a cameo. Plus, breaking news regarding George Zimmerman! Let's see how well I know my classic Mega Man!

Mega Man Legacy Collection title screen E3 2015 intro
Some may claim this is "authentic". I claim this was made in Paint.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:08 pm
    I'll live react to Capcom, lol.
    They're playing some challenge on Mega Man 1.
    Which just transformed into Bubble Man's Mega Man 2
    You're being timed
    now you're switched to Mega Man 3
    Gemini Man
    now Mega Man 4
    This is.....
    ................Dive Man?
    Dang, my memory is faulty as to which Robot Master is who.
    I know this!
    Mega Man 6

 Nintendork 13 13 4:10 pm
    I remember this level
    don't remember which Robot Masters are in this game to be honest.
    Mega Man Legacy Collection features flickering and slowdown programmed into the game.
    There's a Yellow Devil challenge
    they better not pick it.

Mega Man Legacy Collection Yellow Devil challenge
Anything with Yellow Devil should be labeled "Hard".

 Nintendork 13 13 4:12 pm
    "let's put as many Mega Man games as we can and let's put it into the new system" - the previous Mega Man compilation
    Now it's "focus on authenticity" whatever that means.
    "Focus on NES"
    Native scale-up
    blah blah blah
    Random Bomb-Man challenge.
    Gregaman of Capcom Unity with the producer of the collection.
    They're taking questions from the chat for some reason.
    (Guess that's different than Treehouse Live)
    (Only 339 viewers here vs. like 11,000 in Treehouse Live)

 Nintendork 13 13 4:15 pm
    There's a filter option to make the game look worse ("retro")
    Some babble about workarounds or something.
    "Capcom is definitely focusing on this [Mega Man Legacy Collection] right now"
    "It's not a test, this is a product we're very proud of."
    C'mon guys.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:17 pm
    "We are gamers here too and we are definitely pushing for the same games you guys are pushing to."
    Dude just abused pause trick.
    "There's all sorts of things that go into how things are made."
    (Poor Capcom USA lacks power)
    They're looking at the soundtrack screen for some reason.
    But not listening to anything.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:19 pm
    The in-game challenges are themed
    They promise a whole level of disappearing block puzzles.
    "Not just random screens"
    (Still in progress)
    "Well-designed stages"
    The Database is the localised version of the Mega Man Complete Works info

Mega Man Legacy Collection challenge mode results screen mashup
Mega Man has some nice soda flowing out of his arm cannon.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:21 pm
    They're hung up on what an
    "underwater robot carnival" is.
    From the database of enemies
    You can go fight enemies from the database screen.
    So you can go fight Flash Man if you want instantly.
    (For "practice")
    Part of the purpose of the collection is to get new fans of the series.

Mega Man Legacy Collection enemy database Kerog frog underwater robot carnival entry
"A member of the underwater robot carnival.
It creates Petit Kerogs inside its body and spits them out to attack."

 Nintendork 13 13 4:23 pm
    (So if they want "new fans" for Mega Man, does that imply they plan to do something with Mega Man in the future?)
    Museum has some sketches, including documents they send to licensing partners telling them the exact colours they'd need for Wood Man plushies.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:26 pm
    Dude asks about the Nintendo eShop
    "Can you get a discount if you already downloaded some of the Mega Man games on the eShop?"
    "...uh... I wouldn't even know how you'd do that."
    (so no)
    They're playing Metal Man on Mega Man 2.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:28 pm
    This is a more pointless stream than when Nintendo shows Mario Maker.
    Capcom wanted an alternate Mega Man sprite for the collection

 RawkHawk2010 4:29 pm
    what's koopa-loopin koopa-loopers

 Nintendork 13 13 4:29 pm
    but apparently it was too complicated.
    George Zimmerman is in the news

 RawkHawk2010 4:29 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 4:29 pm
    And Nintendo Treehouse is crappy

 RawkHawk2010 4:29 pm
    Are we live?!

 Nintendork 13 13 4:29 pm
    so I'm watching Capcom's stream.
    Basically, Apperson got charged with attempted murder.

 RawkHawk2010 4:30 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 4:30 pm
    That's the whole story.

 RawkHawk2010 4:30 pm
    Guess that doesn't justify the release of the next video then.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:31 pm
    Capcom showing off that the legacy collection has save-states.
    (Or you could just get the games on the Wii U)
    "One of the very few places where we strayed from authenticity"
    Capcom using authenticity as an excuse, for the most part, to do things half-assed.
    He lost to Metal Man
    and said "dammit"
    "We're not kids anymore. Definitely allow that."
    (Dat ain't Treehouse)

Mega Man pause glitch Thunder Beam Ice Man
They used the Mega Man pause glitch to wreck Ice Man. Nice ethics.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:33 pm
    Non-Gregaman dude thinks Mega Man 4 is objectively the best Mega Man classic game.
    (Dat non-nostalgic view)
    Thinks farming for E-Tanks and keeping them after you lose is acceptable.
    Apparently using the "Turbo Shot" is "authentic" because plenty of people had Turbo Advantage NES controllers.

 RawkHawk2010 4:34 pm
    btw we should watch Trump's announcement speech sometime.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:35 pm
    I've watched like 15 minutes.

 RawkHawk2010 4:35 pm
    I watched two.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:35 pm
    Capcom Unity asked what they think about E3 so far.
    "The amount of announcements that have come up... community-focused announcements."
    Capcom Unity dudes talking about Shenmue III and Mirror's Edge being favourite announcements.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:35 pm
    (Not their own games or their own announcements)
    Poor Capcom.
    This is so depressing.
    Apparently as kids
    Capcom dudes thought Pharaoh Man was a sign of running out of ideas.
    Now they realise Pharaoh Man is really cool.
    (Well, yeah. Pharaoh Man is the coolest Robot Master.)
    Oh, Rawk.
    Nice job on the Vivian James thing.
    On Twitter.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:38 pm
    "You know we're looking at the chat right now... that's pretty rude." - Capcom dudes on Twitch chat saying they suck at the game.
    Nintendo Treehouse dudes seem more knowledgeable about SMB than Capcom dudes are knowledgeable about Mega Man 2.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:42 pm
    The technology is available to up-scale 1080p to 4k
    I don't even know what 4k is.
    Basically these versions of the NES games for Legacy Collection are future-proofed
    so they can very easily do this thing again on a hypothetical "PS6, PS7"

 RawkHawk2010 4:43 pm
    Oh, well that's nice.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:43 pm
    Capcom literally dooming Mega Man to ports for the next 25 years.

 RawkHawk2010 4:43 pm
    Yeah, exactly.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:45 pm
    They're laughing at how the chat says it's gonna suck that Capcom isn't putting the Complete Works soundtracks as available songs on the stages.
    Despite them being available in the museum section.
    Replay data is attached to leaderboard score.
    "We are DLC free."
    (DLC for a port compilation?)

 Nintendork 13 13 4:48 pm
    "Are there ANY possibilities of new MMX games?" - chat
    "Well, anything is possible! But those questions are unanswerable. No human can know such a thing." - Capcom
    what the hell

Mega Man Legacy Collection Heat Man 2
Mega Man is between a Capcom and a hard place. ...He's the rock.

 RawkHawk2010 4:48 pm
    "No human can know such a thing."

 Nintendork 13 13 4:48 pm
    Get Greg Gutfeld's robots on the case.
    (Or Mega Man himself.)

 RawkHawk2010 4:49 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 4:50 pm

 RawkHawk2010 4:50 pm
    Who is that?

 Nintendork 13 13 4:50 pm
    A friend of Joystick Lad who just joined Twitter.

 RawkHawk2010 4:50 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 4:51 pm
    "Does Mega Man have a future? Or is his games dead"
    "Of course he has a future! I would never say anything is as important to Capcom as Mega Man. Will we make another Mega Man game? We'll see. I sure hope so."

Mega Man Legacy Collection Metal Man boss fight
From the looks of it, Mega Man IS dead.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:52 pm
    "I wholeheartedly discourage fans from saying that our franchises are dead."
    "People were saying a few years ago [10 years] that Street Fighter is dead. So I would never say they are dead."
    "There are very few dead things in Capcom, and
    Mega Man is not one of them."
    "You'll probably never see Fox Hunt again."
    "We wouldn't say Viewtiful Joe is dead either."

 Nintendork 13 13 4:54 pm
    They say God Hand isn't dead, but they don't think it should have a sequel.
    I wonder if Nintendo answered stream questions, if all the questions would be asking if F-Zero is dead or something.
    "Why is the 3DS version being released in winter?" - chat

 Nintendork 13 13 4:56 pm
    "It's really hard to do the [engine] on consoles like the 3DS. The 3DS version started later in development. People on the 3DS are very particular gamers and want to play games on the 3DS, so we want to make sure if the 3DS game comes out it won't hurt sales anywhere else." - Capcom
    Chat asked "Why is there no Wii U version?"
    "Any cool questions you can talk about?" - Capcom guy 1
    "...Well... there are a lot of unanswerable questions." - Capcom guy 2
    (One of them is "How do you guys feel about Mighty No. 9?")
    One question is "where do I apply for a job?" and they answered "website. That's what I did! It's not a big secret!"

 Nintendork 13 13 5:01 pm
    yeah they're done
    So depressing.

GregaMan Rey Jimenez live stream Capcom Unity Mega Man E3 2015
I'm sure they wish their parent company had something new to show.

KoopaTV doesn't really feel like having much more E3 2015 coverage since there really isn't anything exciting going on, and the event is going to end in a couple of hours.  Whatever, stay tuned anyway.

Check out the live reaction before this. Not Capcom.
KoopaTV finished E3 coverage with Nintendo Treehouse anyway.

If you're wondering, Mega Man Legacy Collection will come to Nintendo Switch, and Mega Man isn't dead.
