Mega Man 11

Released on October 2, 2018 by Capcom

Developed by Capcom

The newest entry in this iconic series blends classic, challenging 2D platforming action with a fresh look. The stunning new visual style refreshes the series' iconic colorfulness, combining hand-drawn environments with detailed, 3D characters.

To save the day, the Blue Bomber must battle Robot Masters and take their powerful weapons for himself, which now changes the hero’s appearance with new levels of detail. The innovative new Double Gear system lets you boost Mega Man's speed and power for a new twist on the satisfying gameplay the series is known for.

A variety of difficulty modes makes this the perfect opportunity to experience Mega Man for the first time! Mega Man 11 also features a variety of extra modes including time trials, missions, global leaderboards, a gallery of concept art, and more!
Mega Man 11 might be a perfect game on the Switch. It's a fun platformer with a ton of charm and quite challenging in all the right ways. When I first started out with Mega Man 11 the style took some getting used to as I am most familiar with Mega Man 2. The biggest difference is Mega Man 11 isn't meant to be played start to finish in one sitting, it's a game that leans into longer boss stages and modern consoles ability to save your progress. Plus you start out quite underpowered and can gain screw currency to unlock abilities and items to make the boss stages much easier. Starting out, Mega Man 11 was so difficult I spent some time grinding to collect screws to... Read All

I've always been an armchair fan of the Mega Man games but never played any of them regularly until I got an NES Classic. I latched on to Mega Man 2 and haven't let go since (expect an upcoming Cheerful Ghost Radio NES Review episode in the new year). As such, it was fairly natural that I took note of Mega Man 11 and then found it totally awesome that Travis got it for me this year as a gift on the Switch! I wanted to write down some of my early thoughts on the game and will check in regularly as I make progress with it.

I'm not gonna lie, I prefer the old school pixel art of the classic Mega Man games. With that, they do need to bring Mega Man to a more modern audience so i'm trying to give the new art style a chance. Mega Man 11 looks to bring the classic 2D gameplay to modern systems with a more anime style that brings back a ton of classic 2D characterization. I don't love it but the style is growing on me and I bet after playing it a bit I might like it quite a bit. It was also announced today with the trailer featured above that Mega Man 11 is coming to consoles and PC October 2nd. For anyone planning on getting Mega Man 11 at launch or beyond what system do you think you will... Read All

Today Capcom announced that Mega Man 11 is in development and will be launched in 2018! The good news is there is a new Mega Man game coming out and my hope for it will that it will live up to the Mega Man series legacy and be challenging. That said, visually it looks pretty much like Mighty No. 9 and that surprised me a bit. Personally i'd have continued the Mega Man numbered sequels with the old school pixel art graphics and then continued the Mega Man X series with the Mighty No 9 art style.

Capcom also noted that both Mega Man Legacy collections are coming to the Switch and that they are working on collections for the Mega Man X series.
