Capcom has announced that Mega Man X Legacy Collection (includes X1-4) and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 (includes X5-8) is out now on Nintendo Switch as individual digital downloads and as a combo package at retail in North America.
Both collections will see Mega Man X and friends rise up against deadly hordes of adversaries known as Mavericks as they try to restore peace to a post-apocalyptic world.
The Mega Man X series powered up the blue bomber and introduced several new mechanics to the classic Mega Man formula including powerful armor upgrades, wall-jumping and dashing. In addition to this, both collections contain a series of modern enhancements and exclusive features for new and long-time fans alike:
- X Challenge Mode
Brand new multi-boss challenge mode complete with three difficulty options and online leaderboards.
- Rookie Hunter Mode
An all-new easy mode turning down the difficulty for newcomers.
- Improved visuals and options
Three visual filters to enjoy including a retro CRT simulation filter, a smooth filter for cleaner sprites or the choice to enjoy the original graphics scaled to modern screens.
- Museum of the era
Step back in time and explore the rich history of the Mega Man X series! The museum contains a huge collection of archived art, collectible merchandise, historical trailers and in-game music from each title. Also included is The Day of Σ, an animated short film exploring the beginnings of Sigma’s rebellion.
