Plethora of classic Mega Man games to launch on Nintendo Switch

5 December 2017 – by Jack Taylor

Mega Man Legacy Collection and its sequel will launch for Nintendo Switch next year, as will all eight Mega Man X games, ahead of the release of Mega Man 11.

As part of the Mega Man 30th Anniversary Livestream in which Mega Man 11 was revealed to the world, Capcom also announced that many previous Mega Man games would be released for current systems - and Nintendo Switch is to receive 18 classic titles as part of that.

Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will both launch next spring; the first includes Mega Man 1 to 6, while the second includes Mega Man 7 to 10.

Launching on Nintendo Switch next summer are the eight numbered Mega Man X games, from X to X8; Capcom has not indicated whether these will be released as standalone titles, or as part of something akin to the Mega Man X Collection that launched in North America back in 2006.
