Mega Man Legacy Latest Games Collection Coming To Switch
Capcom has released news that Mega Man Legacy Latest games Collection will be released for the Nintendo Switch on May 22nd. The anthology will feature the ten main games of the Classic series. It will be available in two separate bundles, both to be released on the 22nd.
Games 1 through 6 are available in the first bundle, Mega Man Legacy Collection 1, whereas the second title offers games 7 through 10. 9 and 10, which are much more recent additions to the franchise, will also have all their DLC available.
In addition to gaming content, the first collection also features a considerable gallery of Mega Man box art, which includes the box art from 1987’s Mega Man; a collection of challenges; and music from every game. There are also eleven challenges, made by fans; however, these can only be accessed by those who own regular or golden Mega Man Amiibos. In the past, the challenges were only available for the 3DS ports of the game.
Meanwhile, the second collection features challenges for every game, as well as more musical scores. It also has its own host of challenges that can be done with the Mega Man Amiibo.
The bundles will be available for sale at the same time, with the first running up a price tag of 15$ and the second, 20$, for a digital download in this case (the first will be available as a physical cartridge). Both will also be available together as one set, for 40$; this set also features a Switch cleaning cloth commemorating Mega Man’s thirtieth anniversary as a franchise last year.
Capcom has also added a new save functionality to the games. Therefore, that players can save anywhere they like without needing to search for a save point every single time. There’s also a new rewind feature, which will effectively allow players to immediately hit control-Z on the mistakes they make in-game. Players are excited about these functionalities, which all allow them to save time and reduce stress in the notoriously difficult series of platformers.
Capcom has not stated whether or not it will make the bundles available on other platforms, such as the PS4 or Xbox One X.
Soon to come: Mega Man Latest games 11
Capcom surprised fans recently with the news that Mega Man 11. The first main latest games (and not mobile-game) update to the series since 2010’s Mega Man 10, will be released later this year. They have yet to say which date the game will be released on, however. What we do know is that it will be available on Switch, PS4, PC and Xbox One.
So far, not much is known about the game. It was first announced in December of last year, and, as the first 3D game in the series. This will use polygonal, hand-drawn 2.5D art and environments. In contrast to the pixel-based art of earlier games. It is currently being directed by Koji Oda, with the producer being Kazuhiro Tsuchiya. This will also be the first Mega Man main game since series co-creator Keiji Inafune left the franchise in late 2010; it is unknown how his absence will affect the game.
A figure of Roll has been set to ship in August. Although, it’s unknown whether this will be before or after the release of the game. She has three possible facial expressions and is sold alongside a figure of Mega Man’s robot dog Rush. The figures are part of the Nendoroid set, made by Japan’s Good Smile Company.
A trailer has been released for the game as well; it shows regular gameplay as well as boss fights.
Mega Man X games soon available for port
In the past, Capcom has also announced that the eight games of the X series will soon be ported to PC, PlayStation, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Again, not many details are available; it’s not known what date they will be released on. That being said, the Australian Classification Board website reveals. That the game will be available as a two-entry bundle, like the Legacy Collection.
The X series follows X, the second generation of Mega Man, as he fights against evil Reploids (androids with complete free will). X’s friend Zero, a surprise breakout character, was popular enough among the fans to earn his own series.
