Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 developer Digital Eclipse took to Twitter to field a few questions about the upcoming Nintendo Switch port. In addition to Amiibo support – which will unlock the 11 Amiibo-exclusive challenges – Digital Eclipse confirmed that all the Nintendo 3DS-exclusive Museum Mode images will be making the jump to the Switch version.
The 3DS version of MMLC1 includes a whopping 216 additional images not found in any other version. The new pieces include North American, Japanese and European box art scans, cartridge label scans, rare promotional materials and scans of all six Japanese instruction manuals. You can read more about the added 3DS bonuses here.
Digital Eclipse also went on to say the Switch version will include "a couple other updates". This is probably a reference to the new rewind feature and, perhaps, other unannounced features.
Lastly, Digital Eclipse confirmed they are not working on the current-gen Mega Man X1-X8 ports. "We aren't involved in those projects," they said in a tweet. "Capcom does MMLC2 and MMX Collection internally."
At this time, I have no news to share on the availability of MMLC1 + MMLC2 on Switch (if they will be sold individually or bundled) or how the Mega Man X1-X8 ports will be handled (sold individually or in a collection). I have been in touch with Capcom on the subject and they provided me with a statement: "We haven’t confirmed the release formats just yet for the games announced this week but we’ll have more info to share in the coming months. :) "
Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 are slated to hit Nintendo Switch in Spring, 2018.
