Nintendo Download: Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2

Also, Bomb Chicken

Port week…is a very dangerous week. Some folks like ’em and some don’t, but when you’re porting one of the best (if not the best) platformers of all time in the original Mega Man X to Switch, it’s a good week in my book.

On July 24 the Switch is getting Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2, which compiles X through X8 onto two releases. Also on Switch is Bomb Chicken, NeoGeo League Bowling, Animal Rivals, City Connection (the first game I ever played), Beat Rush, Chicken Assassin: Reloaded, Frost, Galak-Z: Variant S, Ghost 1.0, Guts & Glory, Keroki, Hungry Shark World, Lost Phones Stories, NoReload Heroes, Pool Panic, Sausage Sports Club, Semblance, Spheroids, Starship Avenger, Tanzia, Vozel Shot, VSR: Void Space Racing, and Werewolf Pinball.

It’s another week with zero full 3DS or Wii U releases. The Switch indie release count? 21, if you don’t lump in Arcade Archives or Neo Geo games — again, that’s already close to what Nintendo wants for the future of the Switch eShop.

If you missed last week’s edition, here it is. For those who are interested, sales are going on for all platforms.
