Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 coming this year, sadly without a Switch version

PC, PS4, Xbox One

The way Capcom has been handling legacy collections is interesting. They went all out on Mega Man Legacy on 3DS, even producing a limited run gold amiibo for it, but didn't return the favor with the Disney Afternoon Collection. It seems like 3DS owners aren't going to get the follow-up to Mega Man Legacy either.

Announced today by way of Capcom Unity, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will arrive in August on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Priced at $19.99 it'll include Mega Man 7, Mega Man 8, and Mega Man 9/10. There's also an "extra armor" half damage setting, checkpoint saves, and hardcore options on the other side of the spectrum with remixed stages and challenges, as well as the token museum mode.

That's not a bad collection, really. 7 and 8 are relatively obscure by general standards as most people tend to have nostalgia for the original NES series, and Mega Man 9 is one of the best in the entire genre. But if you want in you'll have to deal with a lack of a Switch version until Capcom sees the platform as a viable option.
