Power Button - Episode 269: Remonikered Mavericks And Other Updated Re-releases
July 22, 2018
Capcom has taken a bold step in its re-release of Mega Man X5 as part of the Mega Man X Legacy Collection by relocalizing the game to change the names of the Mavericks from the out-of-place monikers such as Duff McWhalen and The Skiver to the more proper Tidal Whale and Spiral Pegasus. It's certainly not the first time a beloved game has been tinkered with for a re-release, and on this episode of Power Button we spend an hour discussing other games that have changed over the years across iterations. Donkey Kong, Halo Anniversary Collection, Super Mario 64 DS,,Tomb Raider Anniversary, The Secret of Monkey Island, and more round out the conversation.
