First look at ‘Mega Man 11’

by Phil Wheat


Mega Man 11 is the next evolution in the long-running 32 million unit-selling action platformer series; featuring tight side-scrolling action gameplay the series is known for while completely revolutionizing the experience for modern consoles, retaining its signature challenge while offering a variety of difficulty options.

The classic series takes a leap forward in visual presentation in Mega Man 11 with 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 – including a mysterious new Robot Master – and taking their weapons, in an ever-evolving fight for justice with new and unique enemy designs.

But that’s not all..!

The anniversary celebrations don’t stop with the announcement of Mega Man 11. Throughout 2018, fans and newcomers to the franchise can look forward to revisiting some of the most noteworthy games in the series’ history.
