Mega Man 11 Announced for 2018 Release

Mega Man 11 Announced for 2018 Release

During a livestream celebrating Mega Man‘s 30th anniversary, Capcom announced Mega Man 11. It has been almost 8 years since the launch of Mega Man 10, so Capcom is making some changes. Namely, Mega Man 11 will be the first game in the main series to abandon pixel graphics. Expect Mega Man 11 to release in 2018 on all major platforms, including Nintendo Switch and PC.

Although this latest iteration features some changes, Mega Man will still be taking on Dr. Wiley and his berserk Robot Master servants. The major change will be to Mega Man 11‘s visuals. Instead of the retro 8-bit pixel look, Mega Man 11 will feature “hand-drawn” characters and environments mixed with more typical 3D graphics in a 2.5D style.

Capcom does tease other changes coming in Mega Man 11. The gameplay reveal ends with Mega Man launching a powerful blaster shot which results in a “cooldown” bar over his head. Exactly how this mechanic works, as well as any other changes planned for Mega Man 11, will likely be revealed in the months to come.

In addition to announcing Mega Man 11, Capcom had a few other surprises in store for fans of the franchise, especially for Nintendo Switch owners. In addition to Mega Man 11 releasing on Switch in 2018, both Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will launch on the platform in the spring. That means the entire Mega Man main series will come to the platform in 2018.

If the main Mega Man series isn’t your cup of tea, then Capcom’s second surprise should make up for it. Capcom will be releasing all eight Mega Man X titles in summer 2018 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. More information will be released soon, but it appears that the games will be made available individually and not as a part of the collection.

2018 appears to be Mega Man‘s resurgence. Whether it’s the original ten Mega Man games, the Mega Man X series, or the all-new Mega Man 11 title, the boy in blue is back with a vengeance.

Megaman 11 releases on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One in late 2018.
