During a livestream celebrating the 30th anniversary of Mega Man, Capcom announced that the Mega Man X Collection is coming to current-gen systems, meaning you will be able to play a whole lot more Mega Man games on Xbox One soon (via Kotaku). Its sequel features the remaining four Mega Man games released as of August 2017, when the compilation launched on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It looks a bit like Inafune's Mega Man spiritual successor, Mighty No. 9, but better. Sadly, Mega Man 7 and 8 don't have almost as many bonus gameplay opportunities. Mega Man X Collection and the two Legacy Collections are set for a 2018 release. Thankfully each game has its own boss rush mode, which easily steals the show. Since the Switch came out between the first and second Mega Man Legacy Collection games, the Switch was left out of both releases. It manages to be grounded in history, while still adding in just enough modern flourishes to help keep the challenge manageable. Can we get another X game in the SNES style now?
