(Update) PlayStation tweet hints at the Mega Man 30th anniversary bash stream being collection related

Mega Man X Legacy Collection?

[Update: Later in the day I received the same shipment as the one pictured above.  Given that Nintendo also retweeted the news, I’m doubling down on my guess for Mega Man X Legacy Collection for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. Or as a commenter points out, it could be that, with an additional Battle Network Legacy Collection exclusively on Switch announcement.]

Okay so now I’m kind of interested, but this is just marketing at its finest. Yesterday we learned that there would be a Mega Man 30th anniversary stream that we were told “not to miss,” directly following a TGS anniversary stream where nothing was announced outside of merchandise.

So here some of us are, getting our hopes up again. Sony just tweeted out that they “were invited” (marketing) to the Mega Man event, and posted pictures of both PS4 anniversary collections. Now this seems innocuous, but it also likely proves that the announcement isn’t just Nintendo/Switch related (some were expecting Legacy Collection ports), as we previously believed.

Now? My money is on a Mega Man X Legacy Collection. It’s a big enough series with enough fans both in the casual sense and speedrunning arena where it would make a splash. Because really, do you expect Capcom to announce a new Mega Man game? I might have to eat something in my collection if that happens.
