    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.

    Hopefully they make a new MMX after MM11.

    I personally would like a reboot. Yes, another one!

    This franchise has a serious issue with overdesigning shit.

    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

    Bring on the Legacy Collection in 2 parts again (so I can only buy 1-4).

    I would love one last game or two that covers the Elf Wars alluded to in Mega Man Zero.

    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?

    Highs of X are higher than Classic, but its lows are a deep neverending abyss. Zero as whole is better though.

    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?).

    MMZero is the most overrated MM series.

    Yes.

    But bring Zero and X both back. They're different enough that they can survive together.

    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

    I hope this means a series reboot. Starting over, refocusing, keeping the character switch mechanic, and ditching Axl.
    No way.

    I've played most of the X games except for Command Mission and X7/X8.

    Are those games necessary to have the complete experience of the series?

    Every Zero game is a solid experience, but X has some stinkers. At this point overrated doesn’t even mean anything.

    god damn I love the Mega Man X series so much... I'd die for X9.
    X7 is garbage, X8 is great and you should play it, CM is okay but it's an RPG.

    Sage words indeed

    I think at this point I’d rather get another spin off series over X9, but of course if X9 happened I’d still be elated.

    Look forward to Xover 2.

    I am gonna hold my breath.

    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.

    If they're doing X9, I highly doubt it's hoing to be sprite based. Expect it to be like X8 or MM11.

    I'll defend X5 forever. The only really ass games are X6 and X7.

    X is a garbage hole after X2 so definitely not

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

    X1 is the best game of all though.

    Mainly just the later X games. The early ones and most of the other series looked great.

    I think X1 should be the limit to this silliness.

    Great tier X1, X4
    Good tier X2,X3
    Ordinary tier X5
    Ordinary to bad X6
    Bad X7
    Never played X8

    But yeah the series needs a reboot the story was saturated

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

    You should change that when it's getting a re-release this year.

    Let me just get X4 and X6 remastered with some challenge mode stuff added and I'm happy.

    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.

    I actually like X5 a fair bit, but there's a definite drop in quality from the first four games.

    Godlike endgame stages, though.

    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.

    No lies detected.

    The most overrated MM is MM2.

    Nope. It's even one of X's costumes in MvC Infinite.
