Why “Mega Man Legacy Collection 2” Feels Incomplete

While the announcement of Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 only felt inevitable given the success of the first collection, this new package feels a bit incomplete to me. This time we are getting treated to Mega Man 7, MM8, MM9, and MM10, but where is Mega Man’s other 16-bit outing? Mega Man & Bass (originally released in

Ringing in 2016 with “Mega Man 6!”
