Every Retro Game Coming to Current Generation Platforms in July 2018
This month, the retro offerings on PS4, Xbox One, and PC are almost identical, save for one exclusive game that the PC is getting.
The most substantial package of retro games coming to modern platforms in July has to be the Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2. Not only does it contain eight classic games from multiple systems such as the SNES, PlayStation, Saturn, and PS2 but also a bunch of extra bonus features, including The Day of Σ prequel video. While the quality of the Mega Man X games is somewhat erratic, there’s certainly enough good games in this collection to make it worth your $40.
Those looking to shoot stuff in the third-person, over-the-shoulder perspective rather than a side-on one can get their fix in Red Faction: Guerilla Re-Mars-tered. This version is the exact same as the original but with some shiny new 4K visuals and other graphical updates. If you already own the original version of the game on Steam, you can bask in the sharpness of close to 4000 horizontal pixels for free.
In Nihon Falcom’s ongoing attempt to get as many Ys games on PC as possible, it is bringing Ys: Memories of Celceta to the platform. Memories of Celceta is a reimagining of the Super Famicom game Ys IV: Mask of the Sun, not to be confused with the PC Engine CD game Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys. Memories of Celceta retcons both previous games that donned the Ys IV titled and is now officially considered the fourth game in the Ys canon. If you don’t care about any of that stuff, just know that Ys: Memories of Celceta is a pretty cool action RPG, and you can now play it on your PC.
