Capcom is splitting the games from the Mega Man X franchise across two Legacy Collections

Back in December, Capcom said that “multiple” games in the Mega Man X franchise would be released for modern platforms in 2018, leading many fans to assume that more than one compilation was in the works.

Today, the Australian Classification Board confirmed the publisher will indeed bundle the games from the Mega Man X franchise into two different packages known as the Mega Man X Legacy Collection [Source] and the Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 [Source].

It’s unknown how Capcom will split the franchise between the two Collections, or if the RPG spinoff, Mega Man X: Command Mission, will make the cut. But hopefully we’ll find out more soon.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 are both in development for the PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, and will be released sometime in 2018.

Mega Man X Collection coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch in 2018

Capcom is hosting a special “Mega Man 30th Anniversary Celebration” on their Twitch channel today, and the publisher kicked things off in fine fashion with the announcement of a Mega Man X Collection.

The collection will include all eight games from the Mega Man X franchise (yes, even the much-hated Mega Man X7), and it’ll be released for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Summer 2018.

UPDATE: In a press release, Capcom said that multiple Mega Man X games will be released in 2018. This could be a typo, or it could also mean that Capcom is planning to release the eight games in the franchise across several compilations or as individual downloads.

If you’re a fan of retro gaming, then today’s a good day to visit the Nintendo eShop. Three games from Nintendo’s illustrious past are now available to download through their digital storefront.

Let’s start with the Wii U eShop, and that’s because owners of Nintendo’s home console are now able to download Wave Race 64, one of the best games from the Nintendo 64’s launch period. An argument could even be made that it’s one of the best games ever released for the Nintendo 64, period. Also available to download this week is Mario Sports Mix, a mash-up of hockey, basketball, volleyball, and dodgeball that was originally released for the Wii in 2010.

Jumping over to the 3DS eShop, we find that Mega Man X, the first Mega Man game released for the Super NES all the way back in 1993, is now available to download for Nintendo’s handheld. Fans love the game’s colorful new characters and more mature storyline, and the brutal difficulty will provide a challenge for even the toughest players.

More details on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
