All Capcom fans rejoice, Mega Man 11 has been announced!
During the company’s 30th anniversary live stream, the Blue Bomber’s first new game since 2010 was shown off with some familiar gameplay that fans of the franchise should feel some nostalgia towards. The game looks to have the old school 2D scroller gameplay of the classic games put into a 3D environment. I have to say, the game looks good from an aesthetic standpoint. You can check out the trailer that plays at the end of a long look back at the series below.
A new Mega Man game seems to be what people have been asking for from Capcom for a very long time now and it seems the company decided to take a break from re-releasing Street Fighter II and actually give the fans something they want from what used to be one of the biggest names in gaming.
The previous game in the series, Mega Man 10, released to pretty positive reviews. It sits right around an 80 on Metacritic so that can tell you quite a few people enjoyed it.
Working on the Mega Man “rebirth” are producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and director Koji Oda, both veterans of Capcom and Mega Man games. The image below is character art from the new game.
Even though personally I am not a fan of the Mega Man series and have never played any of the games, let’s all hope everyone takes to this game better than Mighty Number 9.
Mega Man 11 is coming to the Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2018.
