Fans of classic Mega Man games have another reason to look forward to the next year. Capcom just announced that eight of the Blue Bomber’s classic titles will be available for download and play on all major platforms next year. This news follows the announcement that a new game called Mega Man 11 is also going to be released.

The Japanese video game giant made the announcement during a live stream event, where the publisher provided details on its future projects. With regards to the Mega Man games that are slated for re-release, they will all be under the Mega Man X series and will be available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Gamespot reports.

The games will launch in Summer 2018, but Capcom wouldn’t provide more specific details. The company did announce that the Mega Man Legacy Collection and the Mega Man Collection 2 will become available to Switch owners this Spring. This will officially make the collections present on every major platform in the market since they have been available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC for some time.

Aside from the coming re-release of the classic titles of the franchise, Capcom also announced that it was going to release a new Mega Man game. The last game in the series was released in 2010, Polygon reports.

Details are still scarce with regards to the specifics about the game, but based on the footage released featuring gameplay, it’s still similar to the side-scrolling, platformers of the classic era. The title also has Koji Oda as the director and Kazuhiro Tsuchiya as a producer.

The graphical qualities of the game have also shown a marked improvement compared to its predecessors. Of course, the mechanics and gameplay are what has always drawn fans to the franchise, so those factors are the most important for the developers to focus on.
