Mega Man X Legacy Collection
Mega Man X Legacy Collection is a compilation of the classic games Mega Man X, Mega Man X2, and Mega Man X3 originally released on the Super Nintendo, and Mega Man X4 from the PlayStation One. The game also includes the X-Challenge, a new mode where players battle against the bosses from each Mega Man X title up to X6.
The Mega Man X series, known as Rockman X in Japan, are a series of action side-scrolling platformers. In each game, players are free to select the order of completing each of the eight levels, which provide unique environments and enemies which reflect the boss' character. New weapons are obtained by clearing levels.
Each of the original Mega Man X titles received high praise for their fast-paced action, challenge, and overall fun.

While this is a 2-star difficulty rating, the challenge of obtaining the Platinum entirely depends on the player's experience with the Mega Man series. Veteran players may breeze through the game over a weekend, while those with no experience may find some parts challenging.
At least one playthrough on Normal difficulty for each individual game is required, with some mopping up afterwards. The single online trophy is simply for viewing your X Challenge rank on the leader board.
Expect anywhere between 15-25 hours for the Platinum, depending on your skills and experience.
It should be noted that the game offers a Rookie Hunter mode, which makes gameplay easier. However, this will negate each of the Mega Man X games' trophies for clearing everything on Normal mode. So unless you need the experience, we recommend keeping the difficulty setting on Normal.
Start by playthrough through Mega Man X. If you wish to get all the trophies in one playthrough, then you should take note of a few missable ones to watch out for. This includes Nobody Nose My Sorrow trophy for cutting-off Flame Mammoth's trunk, Just Plain Dillo for knocking off Armored Armedillo's armor, and the Pretty (Devastating) In Pink trophy for using the Spiral Crush Buster to defeat a boss. For more details, check out the Mega Man X Legacy Collection trophy guide links under our Links tab.
Next, start up Mega Man X2. Here, missable trophies include Half The Sponge He Used To Be for cutting Wire Sponge in half, Covert Ops for completing Magna Centipede's stage without being spotted by any searchlights, and the Take Your Time trophy for watching Morph Moth's metamorphosis.
After that, dive into Mega Man X3. Again, if you want all the trophies in one playthrough, then watch out for Fight Fair for destroying Vile Mk-2's ride armor, Speed Isn't Everything for reaching Bit without a Ride Armor and win without using special weapons, Power Isn't Everything for doing the same this with Byte, Persistence Isn't Everything for the same with Vile Mk-2, and the Always Believe In Your Soul trophy for obtaining the Hyper Chip.
Then, it's time to move onto Mega Man X4. Missable trophies here, include Pew Pew for firing fully-charged shots with all 10 weapons in one playthrough, and the He Brought Fists To A Mech Fight trophy for using a Ride Armor to get the final hit against Magma Dragoon.
Once you've finished the four Mega Man X games, it's time to head into the X-Challenge mode, where you'll be battling against different bosses. Complete at least one stage with the X-Buster for the Elite trophy, and all of the X Challenge stages for the A-Class Hunter trophy. These X Challenges can be completed on Easy mode, if you prefer. Also, be sure to go online and check your rank for the What's Your Hunter Rank trophy.
Lastly, simply mop-up whatever few trophies you still need. Be sure to check out the Mega Man X Legacy Collection trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you're missing and their requirements.
