Mega Man 11 Primer: What You Need to Know

Capcom has announced during its special Mega Man 30th Anniversary Live Stream that Mega Man 11 will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in late 2018. The most important part is that the gameplay is reminiscent of any Mega Man game, with him platforming, shooting, and earning special power-ups.

Mighty No. what? Mega Man 11 is coming, Capcom said today. The brand-new side-scrolling adventure will pit Mega Man against a whole host of new enemies, with an art style that channels classic cartoons rather than classic NES games.

Capcom announced that it's developing Mega Man 11 for release next year to celebrate the 30th birthday of the hugely popular game character.

Fans went insane for the Super Smash Bros. trailer that featured Mega Man as its newest playable character.

The anniversary celebrations don't stop with the thrilling announcement of Mega Man 11! The final installment, Mega Man X8, arrived for the PS2 in 2004. They've inserted him into various fighting games, given him his own Legacy Collection, and today had a livestream in his honor. Are you looking forward to playing more Mega Man? You can check out a first trailer for the game, below. They'll feature amiibo compatibility, much like the 3DS version did, and the first collection will receive the "rewind" function that the second collection launched with (all other versions will also receive this function in a patch). Previously, Capcom released two Mega Man Legacy Collections which together compiled all ten of the original Mega Man games into two packages.
