With Mega Man celebrating his 30th anniversary this year, Capcom is pulling out all the stops to pay tribute to the legendary Blue Bomber.

Capcom is gearing up to celebrate Mega Man's 30th anniversary later this year with the X Collection in July and Mega Man 11 at a now unspecified date.

There will be two limited edition cartridges available for purchase, with each cartridge being made in two different colors. Much like the Street Fighter II collectible, the boxes will feature premium embossments and foil along with a premium instruction booklet. The two companies have teamed up once more to bring both Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X to their respective classic systems. You can see the cartridges in the included pics, and, yes, they're totally blue like Mega Man. 1,000 cartridges in each run will also be a special "Glow-in-the-Dark Blue" color, but unfortunately, you won't be able to order a blue cart directly. As with Street Fighter II, another of Capcom's re-released cartridge titles, the Mega Man cartridge release is being handled by iam8bit.
