Megaman Anniversary Collection [GBA – Unreleased]

Also known as Mega Man Mania and Rock Man Mania, the portable version of this GBA Anniversary Collection, unlike the home console versions (PS2, Xbox and GC), was to include only the first five episodes of the saga emerged for Game Boy . These include Mega Man in Dr. Wily’s Revenge, Mega Man II, Mega Man III Mega Man IV, Mega Man V, and the titles were resubmitted with the new color version, but Capcom also wanted the chance to play titles in their original black and white.

Of course, as is often the case for games-collections, developers included some extras such as artwork and infos on the various series of Mega Man. The game has been postponed again and again, delayed till early 2007. Rumors talked about a change of hardware, from Gba Nintendo DS, but in the end Mega Man Anniversary Collection was never released. The excuse for this disappearance was attributed to the loss of  game-code that programmers were working on, but perhaps Capcom realized that it was not profitable enough to release.

italian_flag.jpg [spoiler /Clicca qui per la versione in Italiano/ /Nascondi la versione in Italiano/]Conosciuto anche come Mega Man Mania o Rock Man Mania, la versione portatile per GBA di questo Anniversary Collection, a differenza delle versioni per console casalinghe (Ps2, Xbox e Gc), avrebbe dovuto includere solo i primi cinque episodi della saga usciti per Game Boy. Questi comprendevano Mega Man in Dr. Wily’s Revenge, Mega Man II, Mega Man III, Mega Man IV, Mega Man V; i titoli furono ripresentati con delle nuove versioni a colori, ma la Capcom volle includere anche la possibilità di giocare i titoli nelle loro versioni originali in bianco e nero.

Naturalmente, come spesso accade per le collection, gli sviluppatori inserirono alcuni extra quali artwork e varie info sulla saga di Mega Man. La raccolta è stata rinviata più e più volte, fino a fare slittare la data di uscita agli inizi del 2007. Voci parlarono di un cambio di hardware, da Gba a Nintendo Ds, ma alla fine Mega Man Anniversary Collection non fu mai rilasciato. La scusa per la sparizione fu imputata alla perdita del codice su cui stavano lavorando i programmatori, ma forse Capcom si rese semplicemente conto dell’inutilità di questa collection.[/spoiler]

    Ya know, I remember looking at an advertisement in Nintendo Power (Vol. 181) about Anniversary Collection. At the bottom-right of the ad, it showed a GBA box with the console versions’ boxart. Right beside it shows “Coming Fall ’04” “5 Games in 1!”. Now I realized that this version never got materialized. At least I could get the old school Mega Mans on the Game Boy instead.

    That’s why my grandma couldn’t find the game when I asked for it for Christmas; because it was never released in the first place.

    This was the most upset I’ve ever been by a cancellation. I was absolutely heartbroken & even this reminder has opened an old wound.
