Just found out that Megaman legacy collection did those numbers(and thats without the Switch version) and it was the reason why Capcom greenlight a new game.It really is a nice story of fans showing their support and demonstrating that a franchise isnt dead.
the quote that says that:
“What was really nice was, when we released Mega Man Legacy Collection, it did really well,” Tsuchiya told me. “It had 1 million sales worldwide. It was very much a way of numerically showcasing, to people internally, that there is a strong fan base. There are people waiting for a new Mega Man game. We were able to show that with those numbers. We wouldn’t have been able to do that without our fans. I’m very thankful to our fan base.”
So yeah, everyone better buy the Megaman X Legacy collection, or I will have to have some words with you!
My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.
