Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 Now Available On Switch

2018 is the year of Mega Man! All of the mainline Mega Man games are now available on the Nintendo Switch. In May Nintendo fans were treated to Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2, which contained Mega Man 1-10 and now they can bask in the glory of all eight Mega Man X games with (you guessed it) Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2.

This new collection contains all of the great games you remember plus some additional bonuses to sweeten the deal. You’ll find a bunch of rare game art, trailers, and merchandise galleries. Plus, there’s a brand new X Challenge Mode where X has to fend off two Maverick bosses at the same time. The game retails for $39.99 for the entire package at stores or you can buy each collection separately for $19.99 each via the eShop.



Get ready to join Mega Man X on exhilarating robot busting, fast-paced action adventures in the classic Mega Man X series. Mega Man X Legacy Collection (includes X1-4) and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 (includes X5-8) bring all eight games from the futuristic X series to current platforms with a range of new bonus features. Each collection is now available individually digitally and at retail as a combo pack in North America beginning today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC. 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 Xseries! 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.
