Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection introduces a clever twist on speedrunning with Z Chaser mode


Has local and online options

Teased during the initial announcement, Capcom has unveiled the details surrounding Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection’s new “Z Chaser Mode.” A clever twist on speedrunning, Z Chaser will allow you to verse a computer ghost in a split-screen battle to best your own times on different levels. It will even feature support for local versus and online scoreboards. This is bringing back memories me downloading ghosts in PGR2 to perfect my lap times.

It may not be brand new content for Mega Man Zero (or another sequel), but added bonuses like this are what made the Mega Man Legacy Collection so interesting. Capcom could have just dumped all the ROMs in one package and called it a day, but they’re going the extra mile to ensure that longtime fans get the most out of this. Considering this series has always been closely tied with speedrunning, Z Chaser sounds like the perfect inclusion.

The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection will be heading to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch in early January 2020. You can find out more about it here.
