Shipping Begins
Late September 2018


Capcom + iam8bit have been collaborating for well over a decade, and one of our very first landmark projects was in honor of everyone’s favorite Blue Bomber. It’s with tremendous excitement that we now find our dear Mega Man celebrating his big 3-0, inspiring a trip down memory lane to rekindle our love affair with the franchise that defined so much of what we love about action platformers today. Today’s announcement celebrates one of the most beloved entries in the 30 year-old franchise. This Mega Man X – 30th Anniversary Classic Cartridge isn’t just a mantlepiece – it’s an actual, playable brand new SNES game… but that’s not all. No luxury was spared in crafting the ultimate cartridge version – including an embossed, foiled, spot-varnished beauty of a box w/ upgraded tri-fold cover, a premium instruction booklet with foreword by Mega Man historian/superfan Jirard “The Completionist” Khalil, and other retro pack-in surprises (which won’t be revealed until you tear open that shrinkwrap). Every ounce of this package was lovingly – and painstakingly – restored from archival materials. A perfect birthday present, indeed!
