Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

2018 is going to mark Mega Man’s 30th anniversary and developer/publisher Capcom plans to celebrate this event by releasing their latest installment of the franchise, Mega Man 11. However, we don't need to wait that long and can celebrate our favorite blue robot character Mega Man with Mega Man X game series, because Capcom is bringing Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2, collecting all eight X games of the series for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2 both will debut worldwide on July 24, 2018. Mega Man X Legacy Collection collects Mega Man X, X2, X3 and X4 from the series and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 contains X5, X6, X7 and X8. These collections will be available to digitally purchase for only $19.99 each. If you prefer to buy physical copy, then the two discs retail bundle collection will cost you $39.99 only. For Switch, the first collection comes in a cartridge and a digital download voucher will be given for second compilation.

Below is the announce trailer for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, briefly showcasing unique history of the series.




The entire action-platformer Mega Man X series is based on a post-apocalyptic setting that we are about to revisit through Legacy Collection 1 & 2. During the 16-bit era of 90's, Mega Man X entered the scene in 1994 to usher an evolution on its own. A classic formula of jumping and shooting through eight different stages with a Maverick boss character at the end to foil a sinister plot by an evil mastermind was established. Mega Man X series has added dashing and wall jumping into the gameplay mix.

Some all-new features are what make legacy collections special and visual upgrade is one of them. Each title has received some graphical smoothing which is optional for players or you can just play as they were in their original resolution. CRT filters for early sprite-based entries and full screen mode to balance the aspect ratio are there with widescreen mode. Mega Man X7 and X8 has their 3D models improved for sharp output as well.

Full soundtracks of the series, brand-new tracks and remixes are all included. One more thing there is to note about these anthologies is that Mega Man Xtreme, Mega Man Xtreme 2 and Mega Man X: Command Mission games are excluded in this set. A 25-minute original video animation titled "The Day of Σ" from Maverick Hunter X, which details origin story of series antagonist Sigma in prior events that laid foundation for X games series.

All-New "X Challenge" Mode

There is a museum full of archived key-arts, notable trailers, toys, trading cards and other cool stuff. Plus, a brand-new "X Challenge" mode is introduced, where Mega Man has to take on two classic Maverick bosses at the same time from different X games. You get to choose a maximum of three weapons into the fight or if you believe yourself as a pro-Maverick hunter then jump in with only a buster for earning your bragging rights. Have you ever wondered if you can defeat both Chill Penguin and Frost Walrus at once? Now you can easily find out.

With releasing of Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, Capcom finally is giving some recognition to this classic series what was due for decades as they are no longer available on Nintendo 3DS. Whether you picked up early titles of the franchise or came late to pick the newer games, these two collections will suffice.

Mega Man 11 Announced

On the 30-year anniversary of arcade's most favorite Blue Bomber protagonist Mega Man, Capcom decided to drop the bomb which the fans of the series might not have seen coming but is happy that it dropped. Yup, you guessed it right. The publisher of the game made an official announcement that the legendary hero will return sometime in 2018 with Mega Man 11. Producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya will be on board with director Koji Oda for this brand-new game of the series.

Mega Man 11 Announced

While there are not much details for Mega Man 11 at hand except that the game will be available to play on Nintendo Switch,  PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We have a trailer at hand to show you a brief peek at what's coming in the upcoming title though. Check it out.




One thing is certain that, Mega Man 11 will still remain a 2D side-scrolling action adventure title. In fact, you can even consider it as 2.5D. From its original 8-bit days, Mega Man has managed to become a legend while also inspiring countless other fan-favorite series in the process. With every other games going through a revolutionary change, Mega Man 11 will surely be no different and is about to create new milestones.

All-New Visual Direction 

What we were able to gather was that while the game will resemble to the predecessors of the series in looks, it will be modernized and a noticeable change in art style will be there. Our hero, Mega Man's appearance might even slightly change and he will have a new weapon as well. In this way, the game is re-invented and fans from both older and newer generation can enjoy it at the same time.

Newest Side-Scrolling Adventure

The year 2018 will not only see the release of the latest installment of the Mega Man series but it will also be celebrated for Mega Man’s 30th anniversary. To increase that excitement a little more, all eight games from the Mega Man X series are coming to PlayStation 4 on the same year. So, you can also go back to your old days with those games while you wait for Mega Man 11 to release. Sounds like a plan!

When a series has 30 years of enriched history of being adorned by fans and players worldwide, we only hope from Capcom to bring their very best with Mega Man 11 and nothing less. Since the title is still on the development stage, we have to hold our excitement for the moment and wait for the revealing of the release date for 2018.
