Mega Man X1-8 being released for PS4, XBO, Switch, PC in Summer 2018.

It wasn't specifically announced as a Collection, so it may be some weird seperate release for each game.

They'll probably chunk it up into 1-3, 4-6 and 7&8 or something.

I'll skip 6 and 7 this time around I think!

Been waiting for these on Switch for a while. I was just planning on Nintendo's eventual (and long-awaited) virtual console but I'll take what I can get.

This pleases me as a Switch owner.  Even though I have X1-X3 on the New 3DS, having portible X4 & X8 are also good bonuses.  I'll probably play X5 & X6 as well.

X7 can go ##### off.

I still say X6 is worse than X7 but it's pretty damn close.

If it's retail, I'm in.  If it's digital, it can ##### right off.  Be nice to have all 3 versions of X3 this time, or at the VERY LEAST the SNES version.

I'd be happy if we got both the SNES and PS1 versions of X3, but we all know they're going to do only one and pick the easy one, which will probably be PS1 version. Just like how we only got the PS1 version of MM8 and didn't get the Saturn version.

I wonder if X7 and X8 will be in widescreen or not.

If we take out the story and, ahem, new characters... I just can't deal with the 2.5D in X7, personally. X6 isn't very good at all but the gameplay is more serviceable for me.

X7 is horse##### on ever front.  Stage design, music, characters, gameplay.  Horrid use of 3D/2D.  X6, while still having ##### stage design, still LOOKS ok for the most part and has some decent music (if not close to the series best).  I don't think X6 is a GREAT game, but it's passable (if barely).

And on another note, X8 is JUST as bad in the stage design as X7 and X6.  X7 has it beat by a mile, but X8 is still worse than X6.  And that's not even going into the non gameplay/design elements of the games.

I haven't played X7 or X8 since within a month or so after they came out (and had bought them).  I never finished EITHER of them because they were so god damn awful.  But if they were on a collection I'd probably at least boot them up again at least once.

It really is that bad.  It definitely belongs in the X5-X8 tier of the series, and I'd argue X5 is the best of the 4, and it's a BIG step down from 1-4.  Anyone who honestly thinks it's as good as any of the first 4 games literally has a learning disability.

I only prefer X6 over 7 and 8 because it still uses the X4 engine and sprites. X7 is awful in both stage design and engine wise. Same with X8, it just managed to be slightly better than X7.

X5 overall is decent, but the whole way you obtained power up parts and armor parts was just terrible. If you want to be able to get the most power up parts in one file you had to get a game over about 9 or 10 times before beating any of the 8 Bosses. And then to make it worse, no matter what you'll always miss 8 parts because each stage makes you choose one or the other with the crap Life / Energy nonsense deciding what you get.

As awful as X6 is, at the very least you can potentially get every part in one file. Still hate the game though.

So, apparently there have been ratings posted for a Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2.  It seems like Capcom is going to separate the good and bad X games into 2 different collections.

I have X and X2 in cart form, X-X3 on Virtual console, and X Collection and Command Mission on Gamecube, and X8 on PS2.

LET'S BUY IT ALL AGAIN!

Seriously, I hope Mega Man 11 isn't where new content ends.

So why... exactly... was the first collection rated M in Australia?

Most likely X4's Double cutscene and Zero's intro.

Majikn my friend, you really need to consolidate your Mega Man platforms.
What platform has every Mega Man game?

Also I forgot I bought Legacy Collection on steam for like 5 bucks.

Also I know what you meant but I must inform everyone that I imagined myself smashing all of my devices together and hoping that it'll form some sort of... Mega Console...

Some sort of... Mega Drive, if you will? That would be quite the Master System, eh? Eh? I'll stop.

Seriously, I hope Mega Man 11 isn't where new content ends.

Totally. I was hoping 9 and 10 would lead to a wealth of new Megaman stuff but the franchise just lingered after those.

Real talk if they wanted to take a stab at some new entries into other MM series' I'd be way into that. BN's quality dropped off a cliff but I'd be down to get into that universe again if they made a serviceable stab at all.

Or, hey, wow me with a whole new take on Mega Man. I mean, Legends and BN were complete overhauls of the paradigm and that was novel. Boiling the concept down to "what is this really?" is a great way to develop, so I'm hoping they haven't completely relegated Mega Man's future to trips down platforming-nostalgia lane.

I wouldn't be opposed to more BN as long as they bring back the good stuff from BN2 that was missing in later games. Like the Add Button and Style Changes.

I don't think X4 will be censored. They didn't censor Ace Attorney 5 even though one of the cutscenes jumped it up to an M rating.

...although I remember that X4 got an E rating when it was re-released on PS3, so I'm curious as to why they only realized it now.

Reminder: Australia has very strict and often ridiculed content rules for gaming. They're version of "M" means people 15 years of age or older whereas the North American "M" is 17+.

South Park's RPGS dealt with that censorship in a marvelous way.

I think the big problem with going back to other series is what Mikero said: the quality.  Battle Network went down the toilet after 3 in terms of gameplay and quality.  Zero and ZX were never good.  X would likely go the same 2.5D route that 11 has, sadly, and the X games took a big down swing in quality after X4 and ended in the toilet with BN by the end of 8.  Legends was the only one that didn't get a bad game, but it didn't really live long enough to get that far, and for the record, I was NOT a fan at all of the 2 protagonist direction 3 was taking.  So 3 well could have been Legends X7/BN5/Zero/ZX.

I wouldn't mind maybe an all new series/take on it.  I just hope we get SOMETHING, and that it's not #####.
