Mega Man coming this week

I am so stoked about Mega Man 1-6 coming this week. I plan to buy them all instantly and had a question... Does anyone know if this will be available as a bundle or will i buy them all only to see a bundle with all 6 pop up a month later? If so oh well I was just curious if anyone knew. I will post my reviews at TA once I have had time to play them for those on the fence.

Im guessing there'd be a bundle later on if not right away, so im thinking of just getting one of them at a time as i play through them, or maybe 2 at most during release.

The whole time I've been on board with all of them at once and I will if bundled just because it's easy but if not I will prolly start with I and VI and then get two a week

I have noticed Capcom has never used bundles so that would lead me to believe it will be separate and thats fine too just stoked to see how it plays

That makes sense actually. I picked up a few games this recent holiday sale, so i wont have time to play multiple titles anyway so i'll stick to my plan in getting 1 or 2 Mega Man titles on release.

I'm still leaning 1 and 6

Considering these ports look like a trainwreck in the making, I would highly recommend everyone just try out one of the games before buying any of the others. I'm personally getting Mega Man 2 and if it's alright, I'm splurging on the other five immediately.

Thanks I value your opinion on the matter since you used to game it back in the day too
Was worried about that gameplay video I saw that didn't seem very fluid
But yeah grabbing one up to test out the waters first is smart when considering capcom and we know how they can go
I have some faith in it guess I will get I and go from there
Why 2 is that one you like best?
I haven't played any of them in so long I can't even remember one I like best but I do have x on my phone still
I played a bunch of them on nes back in the day
I also have II that was released before on mobile by beeline

I would LOVE to be proved wrong and that what we saw was indeed just badly recorded footage. You have absolutely no idea. Either way, I'm totally stoked for these games.

Also, thanks for the kind words.

EDIT: Why Mega Man 2? Where do I start? Took everything great about the first and built upon it. The level design and bosses are pretty much platforming perfection and Wily's Castle theme is the greatest chiptune ever. It's the best MM game of all time (with the best soundtrack in all of gaming).
