Well, this came outta nowhere...

Upcoming Rockman X merchandise has shown off a new logo signifying Capcom also has plans for X's 25th Anniversary in December. This will definitely be adorned on the Mega Man X Legacy Collections, but what else could be coming? Certainly, they wouldn't just make a logo for a rerelease of old games. X got a huge push in Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite, and there's also this official redesign that only made it's first appearance in a game with Infinite last year as DLC:


What could be going on here? Is Mega Man X9 happening?

I'd be so worried about a Mega Man X revival. That series has a lot of really rough entries. I feel like the OG series has maybe 2 bad games, but half the X games are rough to terrible.

I think this is just a celebratory thing and doesn't really mean we're getting a new game, at least not this year. If anything it'll be on the cover of the upcoming collection and well, merchandise.

X9 is obviously just a matter of time at this point, IMO.

(I had no idea that redesign made it as Infinite DLC, that's cool).

Sucks they wasted the Maverick Hunter X name on a PSP remake.
Would've been the perfect name for a reboot, which is what this series needs

They should just take the MM11 engine and re-use it for X9. I think it’d work fine. Change the robot and level aesthetics, of course.

Wasn't that redesign originally an April Fools thing that was a parody of the Gundam Ver Ka(Version Katoki) models?

After 4 they go to shit.

Capcom should get a team of fans to do a 16-bit revival a la Sonic Mania (and if I recall MM9?).

Mega Man, X and Zero are all fantastic and valid.


That said, as a huge fan of Classic Mega Man, gimme the next X game. I am so ready for an X9

Megaman Z >>>>>> Megaman X >>>>>>>>>>> mainline
As a whole, yeah. X5-X7 really bring down the series as a whole. Zero's weakest entry is 4 and even that's still a perfectly decent game at the end of the day.

Zero 1-4 Vs. X1-X4 is a much more interesting debate.

Legends > Zero > X > EXE > Classic > ZX >>>>>>> SF

X1 is the best game of all though.

This franchise has a serious issue with overdesigning shit.
Mainly just the later X games. The early ones and most of the other series looked great.

I dunno bout that.



I think X1 should be the limit to this silliness.

Except for two stages that are vehicular auto-scrollers, I remember X8 being pretty decent.

Hopefully it's more than just a legacy collection. Rather than X9, I hope Capcom does a full on reboot; because let's face it, X isn't relevant to gaming today (but he sure as hell can be) and the storyline makes not goddamn sense.

Team, the few who is happy to see new X related content and isn't bitching and moaning about designs/redesigns. Literally supported MVCI just for X... Really shame how that whole thing turned out. I'm just glad to see Capcom remembers he exists.
