Mega Man comes to Switch this May

Capcom has announced that the blue bomber will make his Nintendo Switch debut on May 22nd, with the Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. Both will be purchasable digitally, or via a special retail release, which includes a bonus cleaning cloth.

Complete with brand-new features for Mega Man Legacy Collection and exclusive challenges for Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, you can enjoy busting ‘bots anytime, anywhere. 

Leading the charge is Mega Man Legacy Collection, bringing together Mega Man’s original six adventures from the Nintendo Entertainment System. No need to dust off old cartridges to enjoy these classic quests as you jump, shoot, slide, and rush your way through masterfully crafted stages to reach the distinctive bosses of Mega Man games – the Robot Masters – in a bid to cut them down and claim their weapons as your own. With the ability to create a save state just about anywhere, you can retry tricky sections as much as you like without having to start over, or simply pick up where you left off when you’re playing at home or on the go.


Moving on from Mega Man’s early years, spring into Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 to see the beloved bot’s evolution and retro revolution in action. Mega Man 7 originally burst onto the scene on the Super Nintendo, updating the classic series with 16-bit graphics and a rich story that takes place just a few months after the previous game ended. Mega Man 8 kept with the tradition, bringing an astronomical upgrade with 32-bit graphics, an expanded storyline, and fully animated cutscenes that are well-known for their “quality” voice acting. Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 made a splash right as the 8-bit retro revolution was taking off, bringing the series back to basics with NES-style visuals while pumping up gameplay with additional playable characters: Mega Man’s sometimes friendly rival, Proto Man, joins the fight Mega Man 9, and returns alongside Mega Man’s nemesis, Bass, in Mega Man 10.
