Mega Man fans, it’s time to cross your fingers with the hope that Capcom has some sort of surprise lined up for E3, as today’s announcement for Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 did not include any Nintendo consoles. Perhaps Capcom is working on a complete collection of sorts, including the first and second collections together for the Switch, but that might be extremely wishful thinking. Given the Switch’s popularity and how Mega Man would feel right at home on it, with maybe a silver amiibo edition made available (to have collectors pleased), we’re a tad baffled at the snub.

Already the announcement post on Capcom’s social media accounts is receiving a variety of comments asking where the Switch and/or 3DS versions are. Maybe this was Capcom’s plan all along — to see what the demand would be like for the system… but this is Mega Man we’re talking about, and not some IP that hasn’t had a go in recent years.

If we see any updates to this, you can expect to see us report them. Trust us, we’re crossing our fingers, toes, arms and legs that Capcom will bring the Blue Bomber over so we can play with Mario, Sonic and Mega Man anytime we’re on the go with our Switches.
