Capcom is celebrating Mega Man’s 30th anniversary in a big way, bringing ten classic Mega Man adventures to Nintendo Switch this May. The Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 are headed to the eShop, and will be available starting on May 22.

The first Legacy Collection bundles the first six Mega Man games into a neat, and now, portable, little package, while the second part will include Mega Man 7, 8, 9, and 10. The collection adds some extra bells and whistles to the game, including a handy rewind feature that lets you practice particularly difficult parts of the game by holding a button and rolling back your gameplay. You’ll also be able to pick up or leave the game whenever and wherever you’d like.

When you need a break from it all, the collection also boasts an expansive art gallery featuring concept art, box art, soundtracks, and special challenges. This is shaping up to be the definitive Mega Man collection for die-hard fans of the series.

Both collections will be available on the eShop, or grab the special retail edition, which features a Mega Man Legacy Collection cartridge and a Mega Man 30th’s Anniversary cleaning cloth. You can pre-order it now.
