So at some point last week or this weekend, Capcom decided to kick off this week with a ton of Mega Man ZERO Collection assets. And if you can't tell by the name, ZERO Collection is a compilation for DS of all four Mega Man ZERO titles previously released on GBA.
If that doesn't ring a bell, just try to remember the games where the reploids suddenly looked like teenagers and ditched the bulky armor for a more streamlined look. The star of the series is obviously Zero, though not the same one who possesses those shiny green
In addition to the new Zero, a couple other key individuals or groups appear in the story.
Zero – Our hero of the series, Zero is a legendary “Reploid” and Maverick hunter. After being in a coma for 100 years, our hero awakens and finds himself amidst a war, where “Reploids” are being hunted by the government of Neo Arcadia. Armed with an arsenal of weapons and superior fighting skills, Zero helps a resistance group fight against this evil government.
Ciel – A human researcher living amongst the “Reploids,” Ciel is the one who finds Zero after he awakens from his coma. Ciel hopes for the coexistence between humans and “Reploids.” One of the spearheads of the Resistance, Ciel fights to protect innocent “reploids” while researching for new energy sources.
The Resistence – This group of “Reploids” was attacked by the government of Neo Arcadia and saved by Ciel. Ciel leads the Resistance to protect innocent “Reploids” being hunted by Neo Arcadia. Zero ultimately joins the Resistance to help save the “Reploids.”
Ah, but you want to see the "purdy" pictures, right? They're right below, from beautiful (albeit familiar) artwork to shiny new screenshots. There is no bloom involved; we just like the word "shiny."
