Capcom is often the target of exasperation and mockery among video game followers. Its treatment of the Mega Man series is a case in point, with high profile instances of cancelled games and the disappointing disappearance of the franchise after Mega Man 10. Then the company confirmed projects for a cartoon and even a movie, while many asked "and when's the next game?"
Well, good things do come to those who wait, with a whole bunch of announcements earlier this week to make gamers smile. The Switch is in on the action, too, which is the best thing about it; the following were revealed.
- Mega Man 11 is coming to the Switch in late 2018
- Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 & 2 Coming to Switch in Spring, with amiibo Support
- All the Mega Man X games are coming to the Switch in Summer 2018
That's a lot of Mega Man (pretty much every main game released to date), and pleasingly alongside all the retro goodness there is a new game - that's arguably the most important thing.
It's all rather exciting, and now that the dust has settled a little and we've all stepped off the initial hype train we want to know what you think. Do you like the look of Mega Man 11, are you pleased about the Legacy Collection announcement? Let us know in the polls and comments below.
