Mega Man Legacy Collection 2

Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2 are in the works for Switch, Capcom announced during its 30th anniversary live stream celebration for the series. Both will support amiibo.

The original Mega Man Legacy Collection came to 3DS in 2016. However, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 hasn’t been available on any Nintendo system – until now.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2 will launch for Switch sometime in Summer 2018.

Capcom brought the original Mega Man Legacy Collection to 3DS. But as things stand now, the sequel won’t be on any platform – be it 3DS or Switch.

Fans have at least been hoping that Capcom would port Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 to Switch. However, in an interview with TechnoBuffalo, producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya directly stated that there are currently no plans.

The only sort of small hint we’ve seen about Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 on a Nintendo platform came about earlier this month. It was discovered that the game’s code contained several references to 3DS. It’s possible that Capcom is thinking about bringing the compilation to Nintendo’s portable, or was considering it at one point before scrapping those plans.

Thanks to Anthony for the tip.

GreigaMaster has poked through the code of Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 and spotted something rather interesting. A number of strings in the game are specifically for 3DS.

First, several strings line up with 3DS multiplayer functionality. References have also been found regarding saving replay and game data to an SD Card. Finally, one of the directories has the file “msg_3DS.bin”.
