Lots Of Classic Mega Man Games Are Coming To PS4, Switch, Xbox One, And PC Next Year
The entire Mega Man X series is coming to all major consoles in 2018.
As Capcom teased, its Mega Man anniversary livestream contained some exciting news for fans of the Blue Bomber. In addition to announcing a brand-new installment in the franchise, Mega Man 11, the publisher revealed that a slate of classic Mega Man titles will be re-released 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 Summer 2018. However, Capcom didn't share any more details than that; we still don't know exactly when the titles will be released, or whether they'll 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."

Additionally, Capcom announced it will bring both Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 to Switch next spring. The compilations were previously available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but this marks the first time all 10 titles in the classic Mega Man series will be available on Nintendo's hybrid console. The first Legacy Collection will also feature a new Rewind function; that will be added to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions as an update. Both collections will also be compatible with Amiibo figures, though Capcom hasn't revealed what they'll unlock.
Mega Man 11 will likewise be released for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is slated to launch in late 2018 and is the first new installment in the series to be announced in seven years. Capcom says it will reveal more information about the game next summer; in the meantime, you can watch the first Mega Man 11 trailer above.
