Capcom has announced retail launch dates for Mega Man Legacy Collection on Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, as well as an exclusive collector’s edition for the 3DS.

First up, the release date: February 23, 2016. The compilation of the original six Mega Man games will retail at $29.99 across all three platforms. (For those who care not about buying physical, the game bundle is already available on PC and consoles via digital download for just $14.99, and the 3DS version’s digital eShop release will come in February.)

The 3DS collector’s edition, priced at $49.99, will contain a set of four stickers, two 3DS themes, a soundtrack sampler featuring 18 songs spanning the six included Mega Man titles (all of which will also be included with the 3DS standard edition), plus six postcards, and the absolutely glorious golden Mega Man amiibo figure pictured on this page. Here’s a close up:

The golden amiibo along with the original Mega Man amiibo will allow players to unlock 11 new remix challenges exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS. Additionally, the 3DS version’s in-game Museum will be packed with an extra 100 new art and history pieces that won’t be found on any other platform.

Fans of the Blue Bomber on PS4 and Xbox One aren’t getting the shaft on all of these extras. The boxed console versions will at least come with the stickers and soundtrack sampler, in addition to a Robot Master cheat sheet.
