Capcom reconfirms that the next Mega Man game is in development

Mainline or spin-off?

Good news, Mega Man fans. Capcom has once again confirmed that a new Mega Man title is in development. Unfortunately, they stopped short of detailing what the project is. Mega Man series producer Kazuhiro Tsuchyia confirmed the game's development in a 4Gamer interview. Check out the question and answer below.

4Gamer: "What can you tell us about the next game to be developed? The most recent game - Mega Man 11 - was amazing, and we [4Gamer] are expecting the revival of the Star Force series. Personally I would like to see the Command Mission saga to be brought back. (laughs)"

Tsuchiya: "I see (laughs). There are a lot of titles I personally want to work on, but to tell the truth the next game to be developed has already been decided on, I'd just like to keep the specific details hidden for the moment. Please wait until we make an announcement. Still, I think that the there's no such thing as a spin-off in the Mega Man series, every saga is a main series on its own. When speaking of "Mega Man", there will always be people who think of "X", as well as people who think of "EXE", and I think that's why each one's concept of what Mega Man is changes depending on the generation. For that reason, we don't want to deny any series of its future."

Capcom confirms that Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection will not need an extra download

The way it should be

Are you worried that Capcom is, for the lack of a better term, "pull a Capcom" with Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection? You see yourself going to pick up the retail version of the game, only to find that a download is required to get all the games? Happily that's not the case, as Capcom has confirmed that all 6 games in the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection are included on the game card. Your Switch internal storage can rest easy...for now.

Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection off-screen footage, plus info on voicework, worries of lag, and more

Lots of good, one potential bad


Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection was on display at PAX West, which is where the videos above came from. These videos also provide us with some new details on the game, as well as a potential concern.

First up, we've learned that there are two voiceover options in the collection. You can go with the original voices as heard in the games' original releases, or audio "mastered" audio that comes straight from the voice recordings. When it comes to the actual words being said, ZX will have the original Japanese voices regardless of settings, and Advent sticks to the English dub with no option to change it.

As you know, Mega Man ZX and ZX Advent appeared on the DS, which had a second screen. This will be replicated on the Switch via using the right stick, which lets you access the content that appeared on those second screens.

As for things that aren't confirmed, there's one good and one bad. On the good side of things, it seems like all of these titles might actually be included in one game card for Switch. People were instantly concerned when they saw a collection from Capcom, as they worried some games would be download and others would come on the game card. If the way the games were presented at PAX West indicates what to expect, then we should be getting all games on the game card, as Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is basically one "game" that gives you access to all the titles.

On the bad side of things, there's some worry about potential lag in the Switch version. I want to stress that this is not confirmed in any way, shape, or form. While what you see in the image above certainly shows lag, that could have something to do with the TV itself, or the game still being in development. Don't get worried yet, but it's something to keep an eye on. We'll reach out to Capcom for comment on the matter.
