Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2 was announced for Switch in NA/EU yesterday, but today we have the confirmation of a Japanese release. The game will see a retail release alongside digital, and is set to come out May 24th, 2018. The game will be ¥5,389 at retail, while both digital versions cost ¥2,980.
Remember when Capcom told everyone that all 8 Mega Man X games were coming to the Switch? Looks like we know how that's happening now, and it's through two compilations. Capcom has just gotten ratings for Mega Man X Legacy Collection and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 rated in Australia. While not official, it seems like each collection will have 4 games total.
The Ace Attorney series has been around for quite a number of years, and there's no signs of it stopping. Wondering what adventures are just around the corner? Capcom is working on that right now, according to series producer Motohide Eshiro.
"There's nothing I can say specifically at the moment [laughs]. But [Takumi and I] are thinking hard about what comes next and we're getting things ready right now. Please look forward to all the AA series has to offer!"
Once again, for those who are unfamiliar with MSU1...
MSU1, also named "Media Streaming Unit revision 1", is a homemade enhancement chip made by byuu for the SNES. It allows the SNES to have 4 GB of storage space and CD quality Stereo Audio.
Thanks to Goncalo for the heads up!
Looks like Capcom's idea to bring Resident Evil Revelations over to Switch was a good one indeed. Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil Revelations on PS4/XB1/Switch sold 500k altogether. The breakdown is 100K Japan, 270K overseas, and 130K Digital versions. Of that 500k, the Switch version made up 250k in sales!
What do you do with a handkerchief? Are they just used for decoration now, or do people still use them to blow their nose into? Well, whatever you want them for, Capcom has a new lineup of Monster Hunter-themed handkerchiefs releasing in Japan today. No word on an official release outside of Japan at this time.
From Mega Man 11, the latest upcoming game in the Mega Man series made to commemorate the 30th anniversary, comes a Nendoroid of Roll in her new costume! She comes with three face plates including a standard expression, an upset expression and a proud smiling expression.
In addition a Nendoroid sized version of Mega Man’s reliable companion Rush is also included, based on the original designs illustrated for the new game! Roll also comes with her cleaning device and an E Tank as optional parts to display with her. We hope you’ll look forward to this cute Nendoroid of Roll together with the upcoming game!
We knew that a Roll Nendoroid was on the way, and that there was a redesign in the works. Now we know why they were being a little cagey with the details. This is a Mega Man 11 version of Roll! Preorders open on Feb. 1st, 2018. Check out more pics here.
