(Update) Capcom confirms our suspicions: The Mega Man X Legacy Collection will be two packs

X1-4 on Pack 1, and X5-8 on Pack 2

[Update: The collections will also be arriving on July 24 in the west. They’re $19.99 each digitally, or $39.99 for both packs in retail form. Switch owners can’t get both physically — if you buy the double pack you’ll nab the first pack on a cart and the second by way of a download voucher.]

The ratings board rumors have been confirmed: the Mega Man X Legacy Collection will actually be two collections, as officially stated by the below video from Capcom.

The first pack will contain X1-X4, the titles most X fans consider to be the bread and butter of the series, and the second will house X5-X8, the collective black sheep of the franchise. As usual art gallery extras are included, and the platforms are re-confirmed as PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch for a July 26 release date in Japan.

At the end of the video Capcom also teases a wacky new mode — the “X Challenge,” which has two bosses from different games on-screen simultaneously.
