Capcom Announces Mega Man 11

All three announcements were made as part of Mega Man's 30th anniversary year, which begins this month and runs throughout 2018.

Mega Man 11 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC with a release window set for late 2018, with more details planned to come in summer 2018.

Mega Man 11 will stay true to it's beloved action/side-scrolling roots but just with an updated look and 3D visuals. In addition to Mega Man 11, Capcom announced that Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime next year. Well, the Blue Bomber's exile is officially over, as Capcom has announced Mega Man 11. Will you buy the games if they are stand alone only? Whereas Mega Man has traditionally been an 8-bit (16-bit in Mega Man 7, 32-bit in Mega Man 8) 2D side-scroller, Mega Man 11 will embrace a 2.5D design, which gives the background some depth while maintaining a 2D façade up front.

Mega Man 11 is - as the name suggests - the 11th main installment in the now-30-year-old Mega Man franchise.

DPRK accuses Trump of 'begging for nuclear war'
The Rodong Sinmun commentary said the aerial wargames show "the enemies' moves to start a nuclear war have reached a risky stage". The drill, dubbed "Vigilant Ace", will take place from Monday to Friday, and feature F-22 stealth fighters and F-35 aircraft.


What do you think of the Mega Max X Series?

Mega Man Legacy Collection contains the first Mega Man game through Mega Man 6. They'll feature amiibo compatibility, much like the 3DS version did, and the first collection will receive the "rewind" function that the second collection launched with (all other versions will also receive this function in a patch). As for X8, many consider this to be an underrated title in the series since it did improve a lot from X7.

Still, the Mega Man library is chock-full of gems and classic moments, as the video below - brought to us by the always informative Gaijillionaire - reminds us.
