Man, they really went cheap though, probably just went with a 1GB cart.

At that point they should've just made it digital only.

Well lets not go crazy here.

Just don't buy it. If the game doesn't sell well it will teach the publisher a lesson not to do it again.

Send nasty emails to Capcom saying I would have bought this but you cheaped out on the physical cart so bye bye sale.  At least that way they know it wasn't that the IP isn't popular on the platform just we don't like seeing them save a dollar or two and putting the storage of the game on us.



yeah its pretty dumb,no matter who does,even you Nintendo.

With Mega Man, I seriously doubt price is a real issue. It's probably to push more people to digital.



The storage space and card combo were never consumer friendly.

And I heard from vgchartz people that resident evil revelation collection on the switch sold really well. Maybe that's why capcom keep doing this

Capcom themselves reported that resident evil revs collection on Switch sold over 250k

This is the most absolute laziness from Capcom. MM Collection could EASILY fit in one card,and a small one even.

This is really dumb. There is no real excuse for Capcom to not just put the whole game on a single cartridge, SPECIALLY when it's just a compilation of really small games.

It's just Capcom being Capcom, nothing new to see here

I suppose we can give Nintendo the pass here just because.

If Nintendo aint gonna bother putting Bayo1 and 2 on a single cart, why should any other publisher do it?

How do you feel about this?

I think there is a price problem... that said I think it sucks at the same time.

If you ask me, in the case of stuff like MM Collection I think Capcom would ideally just rather go all in on digital but because there is this need to have physical collections for games like MM they just threw it together.

Im not saying its not Capcoms fault but they obviously dont really care enough and this is just a quick buck for them.

But if Nintendo is going to normalise the practice too then well... yeah.



It's to fight the used games market. Your copy will be worth even less if part of the content can't even be accessed anymore after you sell it. They just hide behind the excuse " but carts are more expensive".

For really large games that excuse can be used of course, but not for a collection of NES roms.

Just look at it like a online pass, a method for them to use the media to fight pre owned sales of the games, each time someone buys a used copy of Bayonetta 2 they need to still shell out 30 online for the first game.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Just nastiness and profits: spend money making only one physical copy, hence qualifying to sell it as such, but only spend money to do half the job.... NAND flash is expensive these days... and Capcom is cheap.

This has pissed me off hardcore ever since FFX/X-2 on Vita.

Huh. I had to look it up to see exactly what you were referring to. Had no idea FF X-2 on the Vita required a full download. A lame practice to be sure.
