Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection delayed to February

Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection delayed Kazuhiro Tsuchiya February 2020

Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection has been delayed by Capcom to Feb. 25, 2020, from its original release date of Jan. 21. This announcement comes via Mega Man series producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya on Twitter, who made a personal video message to convey the delay and express his regret.

Tsuchiya explained, “The team behind Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is working hard to deliver the best experience possible and wants to bring you a product that will live up to your expectations.” A delay to Feb. 25 will make that possible. The team “greatly appreciates your understanding and continued support.”

We live in a more enlightened day and age where gamers (usually) don’t go ballistic at the announcement of a delay. Rather, most people are pleased to hear that a game developer cares more about delivering a quality product than a rushed cash grab.

And for what it’s worth, Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection was highly playable in the first place when I tried it at New York Comic Con — except for when I caused the game to crash so hard that they needed to call over a tech person. (Am… Am I the cause of the delay?)

Let us know how you feel about the delay. Does Capcom have your continued support?
