Mega Man fans can finally be at peace. The classic blue bomber’s entire Mega Man Legacy Collection is headed to Nintendo Switch, and yes, that includes both compilations!
Capcom has announced that Nintendo Switch owners will get a double dose of Mega Man when it arrives on the portable console. In this case, both Mega Man Legacy Collection (2015) and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 (2017) are being ported to the tiny console.
Mega Man Legacy Collection is a compilation of the first six Mega Man games. However, the re-release adds a new save mechanic that allows you to save almost anywhere, instead of relying on the game’s tricky checkpoint saves. It also features a new rewind feature that acts similarly to the rewind function in recent Forza titles. You know, just in case you could not get that perfectly timed jump. Additionally, Mega Man Amiibo owners will get to enjoy an extra eleven fan-made challenges that have, until now, only been available on the Nintendo 3DS (2010).
Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 includes all Mega Man games released after six. That means you will get Mega Man 7 through 10, four of the best classic Mega Man games, as well as downloadable content released for Mega Man 9 and 10. The collection also includes art music, and challenges for each title; as well as the ability to unlock more if you own Mega Man Amiibos.
The collections will be available as separate digital releases once 22 May 2018 rolls around: collection 1 for $14.99 and collection 2 for $19.99. They will also be part of a special retail version for $39.99, which will include a cartridge for the first Legacy Collection and a download code for Legacy Collection 2. They also report that the retail edition will include a special Mega Man 30th Anniversary cleaning cloth.
