The time has come. After an eight-year break from the mainline series, developer Capcom will be returning to Mega Man series with Mega Man 11 coming to all modern consoles in 2018.
News comes by way of the long-teased Mega Man 20th anniversary livestream earlier today, where the Mega Man 11 trailer (seen below) was teased as the pièce de résistance. As you will easily be able to note, Mega Man 11 is sporting a 2.5D aesthetic — a break from the the retro-inspired 8-bit graphics used since Mega Man 9.
In the trailer, fans of the series will notice a few things. The series robo-dog Rush makes an appearance about halfway through, where Mega Man jumps off his back to get to higher platforms. It seems like we only really get a glimpse of a mechanical-based stage, in what looks like a construction site. Mega Man is seen taking on a digger truck, drill-based enemy, and takes on a rock-based ability.
Little else is known about Mega Man 11, however we should be hearing more news about the game come Summer 2018. Mega Man 11 is set to launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2018. Check out the brand new trailer below:
