Capcom has shown precious little interest in keeping the Mega Man franchise alive, hence it’s up to indie developers to carry the torch. Chief among those developers is Batterystaple Games, whose well-received 20XX first appeared on Steam in 2016 and made its way to consoles over time. After a period of early access, the sequel, 30XX has fully launched on Steam and Switch. The new game offers lots of new levels, weapons, and mechanics; a level creator, and 2-player local and online co-op support. It’s everything a Mega Man fan could want, but old-school difficulty limits the game’s accessibility.
