Capcom Announces Mega Man 11 During 30th Anniversary Celebration

TODO alt text

In a stream celebrating Mega Man's 30th anniversary, Capcom took the opportunity to announce a big selection of classic rereleases and a brand new game featuring the blue bomber set to release in 2018. But that's not the only Mega Man game winging its way to consoles and PC next year. You can probably expect it to be as tough as the other games too.

Mega Man 11 and multiple collections of old Mega Man games are coming in 2018. That being said, Mega Man's walking animation is a bit off and his voice is surprisingly deep, which might have been done to address his feminine voice from Mega Man 8.

The blast of pure nostalgia concluded with the first trailer for Mega Man 11 - which, based on its debut showing at least, sticks to the series' traditional side-scrolling action-platforming roots, albeit with a major visual overhaul.

Now if this opens the door for the return of the beloved Mega Man X franchise is another question.

What platforms will Mega Man 11 be available for?

While compilations like the Mega Man Legacy Collection offer a great trip down memory lane, they aren't modern experiences.

Based on the trailer, the game has only two major changes from its predecessors, and they both relate to the art style. This next installment in the iconic video game franchise will arrive just in time for Mega Man's 30th anniversary. This feature will also roll out to existing owners of the game on PlayStation® 4 system, Xbox One, and PC. There hasn't been a new title in the series since 2010 with the release of Mega Man 10.
