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.
