Mega Man X1 - 8 Coming to Consoles and PC in 2018

On top of the Mega Man 11 news, Capcom has also announced that Mega Man X1 - X8 will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in 2018.

While the classic series is typically what is mostly talked about today, the X series marked the first time Mega Man evolved past it's "simple" platforming roots, and took full advantage of the SNES' new hardware. Taking place in the far future after the classic series, X is a much darker take on the Mega Man story as a whole. With the introduction of dashing and wall jumping, X was a much faster paced game than the originals, and it would eventually go on to spin off two sequel series as well (those being the Zero and ZX series).

Although the X series is different, the classic Mega Man charm is still there, and is a series well worth playing if you're into action platforming games. They can get quite challenging at times, but with a little practice you can master them in no time. Of course not all of the games are always held in the highest regards (especially when they jumped into 3D with X7), but they are all still fun to play.
