Mega Man 11 Finally Revealed With New Art Style; Coming To Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC
Here's what's next for Mega Man.
Capcom celebrated the 30-year anniversary of Mega Man during a livestream this week. After teasing that it would be an event fans wouldn't want to miss, the publisher shared several announcements--the most significant of which is the reveal of a brand-new game, Mega Man 11.
There aren't many details at this point, but we do know Mega Man 11 will be released for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It's due out in 2018 and is being directed by Koji Oda, with Kazuhiro Tsuchiya on board as a producer. We got a brief look at some gameplay in a video--check it out above.
Like its predecessors, Mega Man 11 is still a 2D side-scrolling action-platformer. During the stream, the developers said that the overriding goal in development is to "resurrect" Mega Man. Fundamentally, it looks very similar to past Mega Man games, although it does feature a noticeably different art style. One key visual difference is that Mega Man's appearance will change when acquiring a new weapon--not just his color.

A release date more specific than 2018 was not shared, and it may be some time before we learn much more about the project. Capcom said we'll receive more information next summer. Also during the stream, we learned that all eight Mega Man X games are headed to the same platforms as Mega Man 11 in 2018. Additionally, both Mega Man Legacy Collection and Legacy Collection 2 are headed to Switch in 2018 with some form of Amiibo support.
