Your favorite super fighting robot, Mega Man, and his sidekick Rush, will be back in 2018 in Mega Man 11.
We love this song.
It’s been seven years since Mega Man 10, the last mainline entry featuring the blue bomber. So news of his return is oh so welcoming.
Capcom annouced today that Mega Man 11 will be coming to PlayStaion 4, Xbox One, Windows PC and Nintendo Switch “late 2018”. This next installment in the iconic video game franchise will arrive just in time for Mega Man’s 30th anniversary.
Mega Man 11 will stay true to it’s beloved action/side-scrolling roots but just with an updated look and 3D visuals. He will be accompanied by his lovable robot dog, Rush and still be the same power stealing bad robot smashing good guy.
Mega Man/Capcom veterans, Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and Koji Oda will produce the Blue Bombers latest adventure. The duo refere to this new game as a “rebirth for their character”. Based off the new design of Mega Man by Art Director, Yuji Ishihara we can see that.
Now if this opens the door for the return of the beloved Mega Man X franchise is another question. Capcom did reveal today during a stream that they intend to re-release all 8 Mega Man X games as well. We can only hope a new Mega Man X title is on the way though, but this is definitely a start becasue fans have been waiting for this news for a long time.
A VERY LONG TIME…
Capcom promises to share more information on Mega Man’s new adventure next Summer. That is an extremely long wait, until then you can celebrate Mega Man’s levelup to next generration consoles by using him Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite for now.
