Capcom announced during a livestream earlier today none other than Mega Man 11, the next release in the orignal series. A trailer has been made available to recap the history of the series as well as to introduce this new game. It's expected to be released on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Steam in late 2018.
Also, Mega Man X1 to X8 will be re-released on the same platforms sometime in the coming year. It's not known yet if this'll be through individual releases or a collection of some sort like the recent Legacy Collections.
Speaking of the Legacy Collections, volumes 1 and 2 will also be made available on Nintendo Switch in the coming months! This will give players of the platform a chance to refresh their skills on the older games or discover them for the first time before the long-awaited sequel finally releases.
Ahead of E3, Capcom announced today the Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, set to release this August for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Following up on the first Legacy Collection, which contained Mega Man 1 to 6, this one includes Mega Man 7 to 10. Curiously enough, Digital Eclipse, the team that worked on the first set, is not involved in this new project.
The official Mega Man site has been updated with the relevant information.
Once again another yearly lap has been completed, and the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's Lab turns 17th today!
Official news are still relatively quiet as of yet. Lately, rumors of a Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 have been floating around, although nothing has been confirmed yet. The upcoming TV series has been delayed a bit, to early 2018, so not much has been shared beyond an updated look at Mega Man himself. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet for a potential tie-in game either.
Here's hoping that more exciting stuff is on the horizon. Thank you for visiting!
As some of you know, Mega Man X7 received a PC release several years ago, but that only happened in Korea. As such, the dialogue and text is hard if not impossible to follow for players living in other regions of the world.
To help with that, Twig released two patches to swap the Korean data with the English set, essentially turning the game into an English release. This made the game very playable, but the work wasn't complete either.
To further improve on this, Gnite has released a new set of patches for the game. These focus on the audio aspect: they replace more dialogue with the English version, especially on cutscenes, along with correcting the pitch of several effects. These files, along with the installation instructions, are now available on his website.
This is a work in progress that should see future updates to correct even more issues, so I suggest that you keep an eye on Gnite Productions for new information!
