So Megaman X is going to turn 25 next year and I was hoping that Capcom would get off its ass and make a collection like they do with Megaman proper for its 15 year anniversary on PS4 or PC. Are there any plans for this? I would love to replay 1, 2, 4, and 5 again in HD and maybe a few additions if they decide to do that along with 8 (which I still haven't played) and eventually a 9.

It's so infuriating I want to go back and replay some of these games but I really don't feel like plugging in my PS3 (which I put away in my storage unit) and putting in the original X collection. I want new updated ones that I can use.

I haven't heard of anything, but I don't follow the hardcore gaming scene that much anymore and if there are any rumblings about one being in the works, I would love some info on it.

They only just released a collection, I'm sure we'll get the X collection next summer.

I will gladly eat a murder of crows if this doesn't happen in the next year.

With the Mega Man Legacy Collections and Capcom's current focus on reissuing catalogue titles, it would have to be a deliberate troll of the fanbase for this not to happen.

I'm sure we'll get it eventually. The only question is if it'll come out on Switch, after all capcpom.

I'd rather Capcom not touch the X series given how many weird things I heard about the Megaman collections. I'd doubly hope they don't try and remaster them. They'd bust it up like they did Maverick Hunter (as someone that likes Maverick Hunter).

Wasn't X the subseries that Inafune was in charge of?

Doesn't Capcom still hate Inafune?

You'll find your answer to possibility of a HD MMX Collection after answering those.

I just hope whoever they get to do the MMX Collection makes sure to put in Command Mission.

You hear that devs: PUT IN MEGAMAN X COMMAND MISSION.

Ports worth begging for.

I really do believe that Capcom simply expected Switch to be a failure (like it's predecessor), and as a result, simply didn't bother investing in ports for it. Now that's it's a success, they're testing the waters a bit before going all in. We'll see what happens, but I really do think we'll see plenty of Capcom Switch support soon. There's plenty of potential profits in it, and Capcom loves $$$. :)

Probably very soon, actually. Capcom is just about done porting over their last-gen catalog, and the Lost Planet series is the only notable exception (or at least, it's the only exception that was received halfway decently). That, and DMC HD Collection, I suppose (if we're counting remasters).

And yeah, we should get one. They can leave out X6 though.

Mega man Legacy collection 2 demonstrates that they have the means (given it emulates both snes and ps1 titles) so it is probably just a matter of time.

OG mega man collection just wrapped up. no worries, X is up next. i'm positive

question is how they'll divide it up. probably won't include all games and i'm sure that'll piss everybody off

We better!

MMX Collection One can include

MMX 1-4 and Maverick Hunter

So we can get a 2nd collection with

MMX 5-8 with Command Mission

However, 5-8 are so weak they might have to stick Maverick Hunter with the 2nd Collection.

I wouldn't bother me if they divided it up how I mentioned it.

If it's just standard X1-X4 and X5-X8 I can see a lot of people passing on the 2nd collection.

A collection of all the X games (well 1-8 and not Command Mission or Xtreme 1/2) seems just about guaranteed for XBO/PS4/PC/Switch and probably within a year. I'll buy anything remotely related to the X series (minus MVC: Infinite)

Yeah, but it's the only "HD" version we'll get. An X collection like the first Megaman Collection is pretty much a sure thing, but those are just ports.

Yea I can't do math.

I don't care for Command Mission so they can add it as long as it doesn't raise the price but fuck I'll take anything at this point.

that's the thing, with the unpopularity of the post X4 games i'm unsure collection 1 would be anything other than the first 3 games. and i'm not sure they'd include command mission to sweeten the deal since it's another animal, but maybe

i'd be down with it. X4 was a different "era" and X5 was decent. but there's going to be a lot of whining however it plays out i'm sure

They don't need to divide it up though. They only did it for the classic collections because Digital Eclipse's goal was just to remaster NES games, which is why they did the Disney Afternoon Collection next. Just put all the X games on one disc. Why do people want to think of more ways for companies to nickel and dime them?

I didn't like Maverick Hunter X. I didn't like the style and the shitty voice acting and the subtle changes. I want what they tried to do for the mobile version of X except not shitty.

That's fair, but I think we all expect them to nickel and dime us so it's best to think of ways where we'd find it acceptable.

I also never got around to playing Command Mission so being able to play it on modern consoles would be FIRE.

The real question is how many collections they'll split the series into, and whether or not they'll bother with X7.

Honest, I think it's just a matter of when now. I had no idea we were so close to the 25th anniversary though, then next year sounds like a no brainer.

I'm pretty sure Inafune was responsible for pushing for almost every Mega Man-related project ever, so I don't know.

It will probably happen. Just a matter of time.

Personally, I just hope against hope we see the SNES version of X3 this time around, unlike X collection. Not a fan of the PS1 anime cinematics.

I feel like that's the case if it's MT framework and later. Where's the original resident evil trilogy, or Dino crisis, or onimusha?

And they better have a preorder bonus if a BURN TO THE GROUND ringtone
wouldn't be as annoying as the Samsung whistle ringtone

Or why not a chill penguin ringtone (sorry, another company already did that and somehow managed to not get sued)
