Today, iam8bit announced their next collaboration with Capcom for “Mega May”, a playable Mega Man 2 anniversary cartridge and a playable Mega Man X anniversary cartridge with additional collectibles inside the boxes. Each of these will be shipped in Late September of this year and are available for pre-order now in limited quantity.
Each 30th Anniversary Classic Cartridge package contains other pack-in goodies such as a dual-fold box with foil, gloss and embossments for Mega Man 2, Tri-fold box with foil, gloss and embossments for Mega Man X, premium instruction booklet with forwards by Salvatore Pane for Mega Man 2 and Jirard “The Completionist” Khalil for Mega Man X, package design and restoration by Jango Snow Art & Design, and other unannounced surprises.
There are two possible colors fans will receive for these cartridges: opaque light blue (white for Mega Man X) or translucent, glow-in-the-dark blue. The version that will be shipped to whoever purchased it will be completely random. Both of these cartridges are being manufactured by Retrotainment Games and Infinite NES Lives.
Both of these 30th Anniversary classic cartridges will be limited edition with only 8,500 units produced and will be available for $100 each. The Mega Man 2 30th Anniversary Classic Cartridge is available here while the Mega Man X 30th Anniversary Cartridge can be found here.
