It's Time for Capcom to Bring Back Mega Man X

Jacob St-Amour from Link-Cable Writes: "The Mega Man franchise has become one of the most popular gaming series’ of all time since its introduction back in the late 80s and it continues to provide new and exciting releases for its fans. From its compilations with both Mega Man and Mega Man X Legacy Collections 1/2 as well as reviving the Blue Bomber with Mega Man 11, Capcom has shown that they are willing to work on this classic IP if the audience is willing to invest into these games. Having said all of that, it would be great to see the Japanese developer branch out and work on some of their classic sub-series that haven’t gotten the same treatment than the mainline Mega Man franchise has had over the years. This is referring to the Mega Man X line of games and it is time that Capcom brings back this version of the Blue Bomber."

It’s depressing how bad game journalists are at their job.

Let's be fair here. Mega Man X wasn't released in North America until January 1994, and Mega Man X8 wasn't released in North America until March of 2005. Maybe the journalist just wasn't counting the Japan release dates.

@ AK

Simple internet search clears everything up

@ Pro

“Mega Man X8 wasn't released in North America until March of 2005.”

Mega Man X8 was released in NA before any other territory in 2004. There’s no reason why the journalist would use the NA release for MMX and then the Japanese release for MMX8.

Also a series like Final Fantasy didn’t come to North America until 1990, but everyone correctly lists the series as beginning in 1987. There’s no excuse to get the date wrong

Agreed but didn’t the OG remaster collection sell more than the X collection?

FallenAngel198447d ago (Edited 47d ago )

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 still sold over 1 million which is a huge feat for this franchise.

Not only that but the MMX LC reached that milestone faster than MM LC did.

On top of that, MM11 was greenlit before MM LC even reached fhat milestone, all the more making it a given that we’ll see MMX9 sometime soon.

Since Nov 2019

- Mega Man 11 sold over 1 million
- Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 sold over 1.4 million
- Mega Man Legacy Collection 1+2 sold over 2 million

Instead of comparing the sales of one compilation to another, we should just be glad that Mega Man continues to be as overall successful as it is now so it can justify Capcom to start seriously supporting the series again.

Its time we got some Triple "B" games. Classic style platformers and shooters that don't rely on 3D graphics much "realism" as in try be real when they're not.
