    Why not include 9 and 10?

    edit: Apparently it’s the X series now, not the original.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    You mean Mega Man X 1-8?

    BURN
    BURN
    BURN
    BURN TO THE GROUND

    Now in HD!

  • MusouTensei

    Tbh I expect either 2 Collections or 1 with 1-6 and 7 and 8 being released seperately.

  • The Clansman

    I expect the later.

  • Nope Naw

    “A release date is set for sometime next year.”
    That’s not what they said. They said “During the year of the 30th anniversary” which is this year.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    I prefer “NO THIS ISN’T HAPPENING! WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRRR!!!”

  • Neppers

    Where is Command Mission? I fucking loved that game. Limit Break = MASH ALL THE BUTTONS GOGOGO

  • Shocker Rider GG

    i hope x3 has the option of using the snes soundtrack

  • 10 years too late, Capcom.

  • DrearierSpider

    Not too shabby.

  • CrimsonX4

    Hypeee!!!
    Cue annoying yell
    BURN
    BURN
    BURN TO THE GROUND!!!

    So excited XD

  • CrimsonX4

    Ah damn yeah! Let’s hope Capcom releases it after these. I miss that game, X was stylish as fuck in that game.

  • Forky

    At least it’s a complete collection. I’ll pick it up.

  • Vita owners on suicide watch.

  • Chocolate ISISCream

    They were hinting at individual releases per game as well, which would be great. Y’all can do yourselves a favour and buy X1-4 only, and disregard everything else as they’re absolute pure fucking trash.

  • Llama Adventure

    Probably more like 1-3, 4-6 and then 7 and 8 (if they don’t just bundle those two together as well.

  • Exien

    Finaly 1-5 were the best, 6 was ok, 7 never happened, 8 is alright.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    I didn’t see anything about a collection so I’m sure this is gonna end up like Battle Network and have it all being sold separately.

  • OldPalpy

    Imagine the time spent doing this, that game is like the Bubsy 3D of Mega Man games.

  • entropy

    MAGA Man is better.

    Too easy, though. You get tired of winning all the time.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Vita owners likely have a console by now. Not every gamer only has one console these days.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    How?

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    I’ve only beaten the first one, maybe I’ll give the others a chance when this drops

  • I have already seen Vita guys port begging for this. Hehehe.

  • BFG

    They’re already available through PSN though for a long time, since the PSP days

  • BFG

    This should be the truth for everyone, unless budget is an issue.

    Handhelds have always been my thing alongside with my computer since I was a kid, though portable consoles have been more adequate to my adult life.

  • Shattno

    You should :) also, when you get to 4 make a mental note that this is where Inafune took over as producer

  • Shattno

    Cool. Will definitely pick up

  • Doesn’t stop the Vita fags from begging for it to come to the Vita physically. HA!

  • BFG

    And what does make PC users who claim demands for certain titles to be released on their platform? Isnt that hypocritical of you?

    Granted you bear a very strong hate towards anyone who doesnt share your preferences and habits, so I wouldnt put the other PC users in the same basket as you.

  • EDF5 will come to PC so no worries. Vita owners are so pathetic. The call everyone else port beggars when they are by for the worse. Besides don’t they know that devs make no money from the Vita?

  • BFG

    You’re the only one here calling people “beggars”.
    And who could have thought a system dedicated to niche games would make less than something else appealing to mainstream

  • BFG

    Vita owners are so pathetic

    Anyone seeing your public post history (and ctrl+f “vita”) will see who is the most pathetic

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Was there some kind of design change then?

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Who cares? I own a Vita and don’t use it. Who cares what the 4 people still begging for ports thinks. They should have all been at Sony’s throat for not securing Monster Hunter Ports.

  • Ruggarell

    How the hell does Capcom milk their old games so much so smoothly?

  • Shattno

    It introduces Zero as a playable character (the strange design changes comes in 5), but I was more referring to that this is is where the story starts to get weird(er). In my opinion it’s all downwards from here. But ymmw.

  • nah Vita owners like you [email protected]_VBP3KIKvSx:disqus are truly pathetic manchildren. Worshiping the Vita like a desperate dogs. HA!

  • Hehehe that would take Vita owners actually caring about gaming.

  • Michael Richardson

    Day One on Switch. Same with both Legacy collections and Mega Man 11.

  • MusouTensei

    Yeah, it would make kinda sense since 1-3 would be the SNES era games and 4-6 the PS1 era. Not sure if selling 7 seperatley would be a good idea though, it’s abyssmal, something I never want to play again.

  • grgspunk

    You know, it would be nice if they actually put in the redub for X4 like they originally intended to do for the MMX collection released in 2005…

  • This could have been done on Steam’s earlier years and during the XB360/PS3/Wii era.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Yeah, back when Sega’s game collection sold like crap on Steam. Steam today is in a much better position to be taking golden era console ports and actually having them sell.
