The completely redesigned 2020 Subaru Legacy just took the stage at the Chicago Auto Show, and it looks like a ... Subaru Legacy! We tease, because while Subaru has ever so subtly changed the metalwork everywhere you look, it's not obvious at first glance. Creases turn in slightly different directions, the fenders pop out just a bit more, and the wheels are different. To really see the difference, you should look at the cabin, underpinnings and mechanicals, where Subaru gave the seventh-generation Legacy a thorough overhaul.
Subaru hasn't changed the Legacy's identity, but we're glad to report that this "all-new" Legacy represents a significant step forward for the model. The midsize sedan hops onto the Subaru Global Platform introduced a couple years ago with the Impreza. This structure is much more rigid than the 2019 model year car's platform, and also increases the use of ultra-high-tensile steel and structural adhesives. All this basically means that the new Legacy is stiffer, lighter and safer than the outgoing model — all good qualities to inherit.
The 2020 Subaru Legacy will be revealed at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, and today we get a couple teasers for what to expect of the completely redesigned sedan. Both shots give us good looks at the exterior and interior, the latter indicates a move slightly upmarket. Plus we have spy photos from a little while back.
Nothing about the Legacy's exterior comes as a surprise here. It's still a normally proportioned sedan with generic sedan styling. Spy shots from last year further indicate an evolution of the previous model's design language. Of course, with the proliferation of crossovers, simply being a sedan is becoming unique. New LED DRLs are striking as they surround nearly the entire headlight. Beyond that, we'll have to wait for the shadows to melt away to make any true judgements on styling changes.
People of Japanese heritage have gathered in Hawaii to celebrate a milestone in their history. They came from all over the world to mark the 150th anniversary of the first emigration from Japan. They promised to keep their legacy alive.
Sao Paulo University professor Masato Ninomiya said, "As Japanese descendants we're proud of our heritage. We'll keep passing it on to future generations and to the other people of the countries they live in."
Earlier this year Capcom confirmed that Mega Man Legacy Collection would be coming to the Switch. In fact they announced that it would be arriving next month. They also announced their plans to bring the Mega Man X franchise onto the Switch, but did not mention exactly how they would go about that.
For those looking forward to playing the Mega Man X series, you'll be interested to learn that the game will be distributed the same way as the Mega Man series, in which all the games will be bundled into two collections. This comes in the form of Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, where the first collection will bundle Mega Man X through X4, while the second collection will collect games Mega Man X5 through X8.
Living in Denver and spending a great deal of time in local wrecking yards, I see plenty of discarded Subarus. It's an unwritten law that every Denver resident must own a dog and a Subaru, which means you'll find dog water bowls in front of most businesses and Subarus in most parking spaces. When Outbacks wear out, they end up in local junkyards. With 2 million Outbacks sold, I don't photograph most of them, for the same reason I don't photograph Altimas or F-150s. But a rare H6-3.0 Outback is another story; here's a very clean '03 spotted in a Mile High self-service yard.
The six-cylinder Outback debuted for the 2001 model year, and it wasn't cheap. For 2003, the list price on an H6-3.0 wagon started at $26,995 (about $37,000 in 2018 dollars), versus $23,770 for the four-cylinder version with five-speed manual tranmsission.
Much to the delight of some gamers, back in December 2017 Capcom announced that they would be bringing the Mega Man Legacy Collection onto the Nintendo Switch. However the company only stated that the games would be released in the Spring of 2018, which was rather vague, but now we have a more concrete release date.
Announced on the Capcom Unity blog, Capcom has confirmed that the Mega Man Legacy Collect and Legacy Collection 2 will be arriving on the Switch on the 22nd of May. According to Capcom, "Complete with brand-new features for Mega Man Legacy Collection and exclusive challenges for Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, you can enjoy busting ‘bots anytime, anywhere when both collections arrive as individual digital downloads on the Nintendo eShop and as a combo package at retail in North America this May."
Just in time for the launch of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy next week, we're excited to announce a new update for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer that adds new Uncharted: The Lost Legacy character skins, an all-new playable character, and a new cooperative challenge mode: Survival Arena.
Arriving alongside Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on August 22, the update will introduce new skins for Chloe and Nadine featuring character models and outfits pulled directly from Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. We'll also be adding Asav, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy's antagonist as a playable villain character for Multiplayer and Survival, complete with his own uniquely menacing VO.
In an industry which is constantly pushing the boundaries of gameplay and graphics, we're sure that there are quite a few gamers who might be worried about some of their favorite classic titles from back in the day disappearing into oblivion. However the good news for Mega Man fans is that Capcom could be looking to preserve the collection.
Back in 2015 we saw the publisher launch the Mega Man Legacy Collection which basically collected Mega Man 1-6. Now according to a report from Gematsu, it seems that a second Mega Man Legacy Collection could be in the works, thanks to a sighting at the Korean Game Ratings Board.
