Long-awaited 'Mega Man 11' launches on Xbox One and PC in October

Today, Capcom confirmed that the long-awaited Mega Man 11 should launch on Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on October 2, 2018 for $29.99. In Mega Man 11, mustachioed villain Dr. Wily is back to his mischievous ways. However, Mega Man has been upgraded with the powerful prototype "Double Gear" system which greatly expands his fighting abilities.

According to Capcom, the development team behind this new entry has retained the core gameplay players have come to know and love. You can still jump, slide and shoot through challenging stages and "Robot Masters". Again, defeating them and absorbing their powers is the heart of the game. The new Double Gear mechanics offer further boosts to speed, power, and health.

  • Speed Gear: Introduces the ability to slow down time when fighting enemies or platforming.
  • Power Gear: Allows players to charge the "Mega Buster" to a new level for more damage.
  • Double Gear: When at critical health, Mega Man can unleashed his maximum power, allowing for deft maneuvers.

Hopefully Mega Man 11 will be a polished experience when it launches towards the end of the year. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced and most likely runs at 4K 60 FPS on Microsoft's new console given the "4K Ultra HD" store listing. However, if you can't wait, be sure to check out the Mega Man X Legacy Collection which is coming to Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on July 24.

  • You can play the PC version on Windows 10. I don't think it's going to be on the Windows Store.
  • Even though I haven't played any Megaman game, I have to say - cool! Looks nice as well.
  • Preordered for the X.
  • Keeping this in my radar
  • Man, that looks really nice, can't wait to check some videos and see it in motion.
  • And I watched the trailer provided and I was definitely not disappointed, hurry up October.
  • Hoping it also includes Play Anywhere at release. I wish all games released on the Microsoft Store for Xbox and PC had this.
  • Yesterday I saw the title I thought why would this be exclusive to XB1 and PC. Then I realized where I am and it was Asher Madan who wrote this... :) Anyway, good to see it also coming on Switch and PS4.
  • You clearly don't understand Windows Central is focused on Xbox and PC. I don't need to mention any other platforms in the title, you can read about the others in the article. It's not hard to comprehend. Then again, you're the same person who tried to argue that Aaron Greenberg thought Super Lucky's Tale was a "AAA" game so I'm not surprised. Then you refused to accept the fact that even Undead Labs called State of Decay 2 "AAA" on Twitter. You'll never learn and continue to be uncivil.
