New 'Mega Man X' Game Teased in Soundtrack?

Although not officially for sale yet, physical copies of the Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 have begun to pop up in Japan. And many fans have noticed something interesting hidden within the booklet included with the game.

According to Rockman Corner, on the last panel of the game's story summary there's a message that says "The story of X's fight is not yet over." This peculiar message is placed right after a summary for the story of Mega Man X8. This has led many to speculate that a Mega Man X9 is in the works.

Take a look at the image from the Mega Man X Legacy Collection soundtrack below.

Rockman Corner also cites another message in the f 20th anniversary book that ead "The legend is not yet complete." Capcom would eventually release Mega Man 9, so this type of tease has happened before..

The Mega Man franchise continues in this year's release of Mega Man 11, but the X franchise has been dormant since Mega Man X8's release in 2004 for the PS2. With the release of the Mega Man X Legacy Collections, more information on the future of the franchise may spring up, but until Capcom confirms it this remains pure speculation.

Mega Man 11 will release for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on Oct. 2 and introduce new combat mechanics for the Blue Bomber as well as new Robot Masters to battle. The Double Gear system allows for Mega Man to utilize three gears: the Power Gear lets players charge the Mega Buster to a new level of firepower, the Speed Gear allows our protagonist to slow down time and the Double Gear activates when Mega Man is at critical health and allows him to use both the Power and Speed Gears at once.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 releases for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on July 24.
