New Mainstream Mega Man Game Announced by Capcom
Well, it seems that Mega Man fans have A LOT to cheer about today. During the Mega Man™ 30th Anniversary Livestream Capcom revealed Mega Man 11, the next chapter in the 30 year old running series, is indeed in development. The new game is said to feature tight side-scrolling action gameplay the series is known for while completely revolutionizing the experience for modern consoles. There was no solid release date, as Capcom announced it would be ready for the fans in late 2018.
The classic series takes a leap forward in visual presentation in Mega Man 11with a 2.5D design direction introducing beautiful, completely hand-drawn characters and environments. A freshly redesigned Mega Man takes on Dr. Wily’s berserk machines, defeating Robot Master bosses and taking their weapons, in an ever-evolving fight for justice with new and unique enemy designs.
Also announced today that all eight games from the Mega Man X series are coming to the Xbox One in Summer 2018. The X series introduced features such as powerful armor upgrades and wall-jumping, with more mature themes in this action platforming series. Fans can expect more information on these games in the coming months.
