Check out both collections in the trailer available below:
If you have no idea about the X series read up on how Capcom describes it below:
“Set in the year 21XX, Mega Man X builds on the groundwork of the original Mega Man games while taking a slightly darker and more serious approach to storytelling in a future world filled with Reploids, human-like androids with independent thought and free will, and Mavericks, Reploids that have turned against society to cause harm and destruction. While retaining the unique abilities of his predecessor to claim the weapons of his defeated opponents, X has a number of new capabilities, including the ability to slide down or jump off of walls, and equip powerful new armor pieces to augment his abilities.”
From game 1 to 8 players will experience starting from a B-class novice then move up to an S-Class Maverick Hunter. Also, as you progress in the game, you will also get to play as a red-armored, melee class hunter named Zero and a hot-headed copycat named Axl. In both collections, players would get to see the animated feature called, “The Day of Σ” which is all about the antagonist Sigma and the Mavericks. Other Mega Man goodies will also be available like a museum full of art as well as a complete soundtrack for the game. Additional new tracks are also included.
To complete the collection is the new X Challenge. This mode is very challenging because you will have to go against two bosses at the same time. And with this challenge, players are given the chance to either bring 3 weapons or just having your Buster with you. A leaderboard will also be available for this, so you will see how you fair with other players.
Expect Mega Man X Legacy collection 1 and 2 to launch on July 24th, it will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch. The first two collections will actually be available for Switch on May 22. And to make things more interesting, by the end of the year will be the launch of Mega Man 11.
