While Capcom joked, his live broadcast of Mega Man's anniversary contained some exciting news for Blue Bomber fans. In addition to announcing a new installment of the franchise, Mega Man 11, the publisher revealed that a list of clbadic titles of Mega Man will be released again for all major platforms next year.
Before Mega Man 11 arrives, all eight Mega Man X games will be released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the summer of 2018. However, Capcom did not share more details than that; We still do not know exactly when the titles will be released, nor if they will be available individually or as a compilation, as was the case with the two Mega Man Legacy collections. Capcom says it will reveal more information about the X titles "in the coming months."
In addition, Capcom announced that it will bring both Mega Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 to Switch next spring. The compilations were already available for PS4, Xbox One and PC, but this is the first time that the 10 titles of the clbadic Mega Man series will be available on the Nintendo hybrid console. The first Legacy Collection will also include a new Rewind feature; that will be added to the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions as an update. Both collections will also be compatible with the Amiibo figures, although Capcom has not revealed what they will unlock.
Mega Man 11 will also be released for Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC. The launch of the game is scheduled for the end of 2018 and is the first installment of the series in seven years. Capcom says it will reveal more information about the game next summer; Meanwhile, you can watch the first trailer of Mega Man 11 above.
