Mega Man 11 Officially Announced

Mega Man X through X8 will be coming to Switch in 2018 as well, though each game will be sold separately.

The game is scheduled to be released sometime in late 2018 for the PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch platforms.

Capcom promise that Mega Man 11 will retain the series' signature side-scrolling gameplay, but will now be presented in 2.5D, with hand drawn characters and environments.

The game will be produced by Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and directed by Koji Oda, both Capcom veterans with experience in creating Mega Man titles. Based off the new design of Mega Man by Art Director, Yuji Ishihara we can see that. Focusing on a variant of Mega Man named X, the game's world doesn't involve Doctor Wily, the main village of the normal Mega Man series.

The original Mega Man was first introduced by Capcom in 1987 for the NES. In turn, Capcom has tried to honor Mega Man in many different ways.

Capcom held a Twitch livestream today to celebrate Mega Man turning 30. It's a style that's likely to be divisive among fans, but you can form your own opinions by watching its announcement trailer above.

If you simply can't wait for Mega Man 11, you'll have some other Mega Man games to play between now and then. They'll feature amiibo compatibility, much like the 3DS version did, and the first collection will receive the "rewind" function that the second collection launched with (all other versions will also receive this function in a patch).

Mega Man 11 is due out in late 2018, with more details being revealed in summer 2018.
