Capcom celebrated the 30-year anniversary of Mega Man during a livestream this week, in which they announced the Blue Bomber would finally be back after his last outing in 2010’s Mega Man 10. Like its predecessors, Mega Man 11 is still a 2D side-scrolling action-platformer. Mega Man X-X8 will also be coming to the PC and modern consoles.
It’s been nearly 30 years since Rock, Dr. Light’s robot lab assistant, first volunteered to be converted into a fighting robot and our hero’s place was cemented as a legendary video game icon, influencing and inspiring the action-platformer genre for years to come. We’re pleased to introduce you to an all-new chapter to the series’ storied history. Mega Man 11 brings a fresh new design and incredible 2.5D visuals to the classic series, leaping into the modern era of gaming with beautiful 3D-modeled characters and hand-drawn environments.
