If you’ve been craving more Mega Man then Capcom is here to please as they just announced that Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is coming August 8 to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will be released both digitally and at retail in North America and will be priced at $19.99

This new collection bundles Mega Man 7, 8, 9, and 10 together for the first time on current gen consoles. You can read details on each game below as well as the other extras coming in the collection.

Mega Man 7 introduces new concepts to the classic series such as an in-game store, which allows you to purchase helpful items with bolts you’ll find throughout the game. Pits aren’t a problem when you have a Beat Whistle to summon Mega Man’s friendly bird ally and save you from your fall! On top of the big visual jump from 8-bit to 16-bit with this entry, Mega Man 7 also introduces a new rival for the Blue Bomber, a mysterious robot named Bass and his robotic wolf companion, Treble.

Mega Man 8 jumps into the 32-bit era with a vibrant splash, bringing even greater detail to animations and sprites and introducing voice acting to the series for the first time. Jump (jump!), slide (slide!) and shoot your way through gorgeous and unique levels in Mega Man’s quest to put a stop to Dr. Wily’s evil plans. Experience an epic, intergalactic story that tells the tale of Duo, a robot from space in search of an insidious power source known as Evil Energy, via fully animated and “famously” voiced cutscenes.

Mega Man 9 sparked a retro revolution with a return to the series’ 8-bit roots. In a shocking twist, it seems like Dr. Light’s robots have gone berserk, landing Dr. Light in jail! Dr. Wily claims he’s blameless, but you just know he’s up to no good. It’s up to Mega Man to save the day with classic gameplay that brings it back to basics, while keeping some modern flourishes like a helpful in-game store. Plus, play as Mega Man’s eternal rival, Proto Man, or take on an additional robot master, Fake Man, in bonus add-on content included with MMLC2.

In Mega Man 10, another rival joins the cast alongside Proto Man, adding Bass as a playable character in a challenging 8-bit quest to put an end to the “Roboenza” epidemic (or in Bass’ case, prove that he’s the strongest robot). Once you’ve busted the out-of-control Robot Masters in the main story, take on the challenging Mega Man Killers in their own unique stages that originally released as DLC and come included in this collection. Claim their weapons as your own for permanent use in Mega Man’s story in the main game!

If all that wasn’t enough, new players can easily get into the game with the “Extra Armor” option that reduces damage taken by half, as well as convenient checkpoint saves to pick up where you left off if your adventure doesn’t go quite as planned. For hardcore players or those that like a good challenge, new stage remixes and challenges await in Challenge Mode. Go for gold and compete for top placement on the online leaderboards!

Finally, a full museum is also included, packed with an archive of production art, sketches, development materials, concepts, and more. There’s even a music player to listen to all your favorite tracks from each game.
