Mega Man 11! THE BLUE BOMBER RETURNS!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH



gameinformer this month also has a cover feature on it!
(click to show/hide)

Not gonna lie, I'm pretty damn hyped. This is not only the first new real Megaman game in 7 years, but the first actually "original" one, (aka not using an existing style but going forward with a new style) since Mega Man 8 brought Mega Man to the Playstation.

I only hope it has a physical release.

Nice! Megaman doesn't look nearly as rubbery as his Megaman 8 and Rockman & Forte counterpart. 'Bout time as I wasn't really fond of that. I like how his outfit actually changes to reflect more on the powerup weapon he is utilising rather then a straight up colour swap.

So do I. The Nintendo switch could greatly benefit from this as there is not a whole lot of variety in terms of games available for it.

I want to say I'm cautiously optimistic, but honestly, I expect this to be cancelled within the next 3 to 6 months.
Also, I hope the special weapons will have more utility than the one they showed.
And I guess they didn't get the memo about the Mega Buster being too OP thus rendering the special weapons nearly pointless.

At least they kept the 8-bit proportions.

Most likely, or we would never have heard of it.

Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe were Inafune's pet projects, and by his own admission, he tended to force things through in spite of upper management's wishes by using tactics like going overbudget on prototypes and whatnot.

And, legends 3 specifically had an open development process. Many games get cancelled before the public ever hears about them, like that First person X reboot.

this one doesnt seem like something they'd cancel.

I mean for perspective, they've only really cancelled 2 games, and both were mired in internal politics regarding Inafune.

This is the first major step for the franchise without him. And after Mighty No. 9 bombed hard, Capcom can't afford to screw this up. This is a golden chance for them to swoop in and succeed without Inafune and prove they CAN still make Mega Man games

We'll just have to keep an eye on this as it develops.

For the record, I was being facetious about a cancellation.
However, I really don't think bring back the Mega Buster and including what appear to be time limited power-ups a`la Mighty No9 was a good idea.
The Mega Buster should always have functioned as a special weapon like the Mega Ball.

Also, they need to do something about Rock's near expressionless face and 'dead eyes'.

Here's to hoping they'll bring in that sweet versatility MM8 had (for the first 5 powers).
