As it turns out Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 will have a new story mode


Linked with X Challenge

Some people criticize Capcom for farming nostalgia, putting up classics of yesteryear in a compilation with little to no extras to show for it. I guess it depends on what you're looking for in a compilation, but Capcom is seemingly going the extra mile for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 when it's released in July on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.

We already knew about the rad new "X Challenge" mode that showcases bosses from several different eras of the series, but according to Famitsu, X Challenge will also sport its own story mode. Now we don't know what that will entail, and whether or not the "story" will be told through a few quick dialogue boxes, but the rumor is it'll feature a new armor type never seen before in the X franchise.

So far Duff McWhalen, The Skiver, Commander Yammark, and Blizzard Wolfang are confirmed for "X Challenge 1," and nothing is confirmed yet for "X Challenge 2." Yes, each X Collection entry will have its own challenge mode.
