I know larger cards cost more, but my point is that I don't even think they'd need a bigger card to cram both collections in there. The first legacy collection is just about 400 megs. And fuck Capcom all the same.

@r_hjort I've heard the second collection is 3.7 GB, so they'd need to use a 4 GB card for both as opposed to a 1 GB card for just the first. I have no idea what is the cost of those, though.

Yeah, I checked it just now and you're right. Still even if the cards go from costing twelve cents to costing fifty bucks, fuck them and their bullshit. Either release the first game physically and don't bother with the second, or release both on one card or two separate cards. Don't fucking do a release with one cartridge and one download code and call it a physical release. This pisses me off more and more the more I think about it.

That actually might be better for me. I don't have much interest in that series beyond 1 and maybe 2.

I thought of a question I had about this: Do Mega Man 9 and 10 include the DLC which was released for those games?

@Mop it up
From what I've read all the DLC is there, but you have to beat the respective games to unlock it.

I'll probably end up getting Legacy Collection 2 and whatever I need to get X 1-3. I already have Legacy Collection 1 for the 3DS

Looks like X1-4 will be in one collection, and X5-8 in another. Seems to have all the standard compilation bells and whistles: visual filters, sound test, promotional material viewer, even a viewer for toys and stuff. Plus that Day of Sigma anime from the PSP game.

And then there's X Challenge mode, which seems to pit the player against two bosses at the same time. Gotta say, seeing Chill Penguin (X1) and Frost Walrus (X4) together is jarring, and what's up with X's look? I don't recognize that armor, and it almost looks like a hasty recolor of some X4/5 suit or something. EDIT: Hmm, actually it just looks like one of X's armors with the sprite smoothing filter on it. Never really liked the looks of classic sprites through those filters.

X1-4 in one collection and X5-8 in the other!? Pffffhahahahahaha!! World's most difficult choice, am I right?

They SHOULD have made one collection all the even numbered games and one all the odd numbers!

Then at least you'd have to think twice about which to pick up, if not both. But yeah, this way, so long Anniversary Collection 2! (Lisa needs braces!)

So X1-4 gets physical and X5-8 gets the digital download only. I can live with that.

EDIT: I thought I was kidding, but no, that's exactly what Capcom is doing. Man, fuck you, you cheap fucks.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy X Collection 2 will launch July 24 in the west for $20 each or $40 bundled.

@r_hjort Wow, that sucks. I guess Switch cartridge costs are the reason. The other systems get a disc for each version.

Which version(s) of the games are in the collection?

I'm really not putting up with the game not being on the game card scenario. If a publisher does this and I still really want the game, I'm buying it used on eBay to protest the activity. It may only be a drop in the bucket, but I'm a firm believer in voting with my wallet and punishing shady business tactics.

That's interesting. I guess to me the best protests require sacrifice, which means just not playing it at all. Of course, our society has developed this thing where they want to protest without sacrifice, so... I suppose that is just the norm now.

The used market is already pretty fascinating, but tossing in "using it as a form of protest" really takes it to another level! A level I probably don't even want to think about, honestly. Too much thinking. But I bet in my youth I'd have found it something to deeply consider.

Am I the only one that doesn’t mind cart + download code? I’ve never taken issue with this. *shrugs*

Looking forward to playing these games again. Some for the first time, like the notorious X7. And I never beat X6, so I should probably finish it. Just for completionist sake.

X5 and X8 are legit good, though.

How does cart + download code work? After getting the download, can you open the cart and access both (i.e. all 8) MMX games like a big chunk of DLC on the cart? Or are there two separate "boxes" on the Switch menu, one physical for MMXC1 and one digital for MMXC2?

And I'd just like to reiterate that X6 is so bad. X6 is so bad.

Basically, if you buy the so-called physical bundle of the game you get one box containing a card with the first collection on it, and a piece of paper with a download code for the second collection. They'll be treated as two separate releases, and 'boxes' on the Switch menu.

Correct. You can access the digital download without having the cart in the slot, but you’ll need it in there to access the first collection.

That's janky kong. They should've just made this one big thing; I don't see why not when the MMX Collection a dozen years ago had 6 games on it.
