Capcom Announces Mega Man 11
Today, during the Mega Man 30th Anniversary Livestream, Capcom revealed Mega Man 11, the next evolution in the action platformer series. The game is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2018.
The classic series takes a leap forward in visual presentation in Mega Man 11 with a 2.5D design direction introducing completely hand-drawn characters and environments. A freshly redesigned Mega Man takes on Dr. Wily’s berserk machines, defeating Robot Master bosses and taking their weapons, in an ever-evolving fight for justice with new and unique enemy designs. This is just a small taste of information of what’s to come in Mega Man 11 alongside the start of the series’ 30th anniversary year, and fans can look forward to more details on the game in Summer 2018.
The anniversary celebrations don’t stop with the announcement of Mega Man 11. Confirmed today, both Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 are coming to Nintendo Switch in Spring 2018, making all 10 of the numbered series games playable on Switch leading up to the release of Mega Man 11 later next year. The first collection, which includes the original six 8-bit games, sees the addition of a new Rewind accessibility option to go back in time following blunders. This feature will also roll out to existing owners of Mega Man Legacy Collection on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Also confirmed today, all eight games from the futuristic Mega Man X series are coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Summer 2018. The X series introduced features such as powerful armor upgrades and wall-jumping, with more mature themes in this action platforming series. Fans can expect more information on these games in the coming months.
