The classic Mega Man franchise officially reached its 30th anniversary last December, and Capcom is still celebrating! The latest way they’ve decided to honor the Blue Bomber is by re-releasing two of his most popular games from generations past…on their original cartridges. That’s right, Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X are going retro with limited edition NES and SNES cartridge releases decades after their debut.

These collectors items will only be available in quantities of 8,500, and they come with a price tag of $100 apiece. For that price, you get the 30th Anniversary Classic Cartridge (which is playable) along with deluxe packaging and “premium” instruction booklets.Most of the cartridges are an opaque blue, but 1,000 of them (chosen at random) will be even more rare. These special cartridges will be a translucent, glow-in-the-dark blue. Here’s a full breakdown of everything that comes with the cartridges:
