A Nintendo Switch version of both Mega Man Legacy Collection games will launch next year. Capcom announced during the series’ 30th anniversary livestream that Switch be home to every mainline Mega Man games in spring 2018, when Mega Man 11 and the Legacy Collection pairs arrive on the console.

Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be compatible with amiibo, Capcom said during the stream. The first Mega Man Legacy Collection had amiibo support on Nintendo 3DS, the only Nintendo console it launched on; Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 never before made it to a Nintendo system. In the 3DS version, scanning one of the existing Mega Man amiibo unlocks 11 extra levels for the game’s Challenge mode.

Mega Man Legacy Collection contains the first Mega Man game through Mega Man 6. It also includes a new Rewind function to let players undo and retry any mistakes; this will be made available to owners of the PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One versions. Its sequel features the remaining four Mega Man games released as of August 2017, when the compilation launched on PS4, Windows and Xbox One.

Other than the Switch ports and Mega Man 11 — the first new game in the series since 2010 — Capcom also announced that it has a collection of all eight Mega Man X titles in the works. That will launch on Nintendo Switch as well as all other current-gen consoles.
