This game requires an internet connection on launch.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2[Note 1] is a compilation of singleplayer side view scrolling platform games developed by Now Production and Bullets and published by Capcom. It is the second part of the Mega Man Legacy Collection, following Mega Man Legacy Collection.

The game is an enhanced compilation of several classic Mega Man titles originally developed by Capcom and Inti Creates, and consists of Mega Man 7[Note 2] for the SNES, Mega Man 8[Note 3] for the PlayStation, and Mega Man 9[Note 4] and Mega Man 10[Note 5] for PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360. Players can switch between the English and Japanese releases of all games by changing the compilation's language. Being an enhanced compilation, several additional features were added, including multiple screen filter options, the beginner-friendly Extra Armor Mode and faster loading times.

New to the game are Challenge Mode, Museum Mode and Music Player mode. In the Museum Mode, there's a new concept art included that teased the then-upcoming game, Mega Man 11.[1]

The game was released on August 8, 2017.

    Back in 2018 Special K introduces a mode that spoofed online connectivity for Steam games which was enough to get this game running while offline. However due to changes within the Steam client itself this method is no longer possible as of 2022, and now a full circumvention of the DRM protection of the game is required to get it running while offline.
