Everything You Need To Know About Upcoming MEGAMAN In 2018
Mega Man was Capcom’s most successful franchise before Street Fighter and Resident Evil. The game was released 30 years ago in 1987 this was the time when we first saw the robot Mega Man who quickly captured our hearts with his courage to fight the mad scientist, Dr. Wily. To celebrate the 30th year anniversary of the game, Capcom has announced via a Twitch stream dedicated to Mega Man, which announced all future releases that include a new game, and a re-release of classics.
Mega Man 11
Let’s talk about Mega Man 11. It has been seven years since the last entry in the main storyline was released when Mega Man 10 hit the Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and PSP. In Mega Man 11, players can expect the hero just as how we remembered him in the good old days. He is still on a mission to take down Dr. Wily’s mad machines and stop his advances.
Mega Man received some upgrades and a detailed new look. Now he can also change his color when he swaps with a Robot Master’s weapon. This can be clearly seen in the trailer showed below so expect some excellent transformation as he crosses his way through freakish and vivid environments. Mega Man 11 will hit stores at the end of 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PCs.
The Return Of The Classics
Capcom is also planning to re-release the classic Mega Man games earlier in the release of Mega Man 11. In the Spring of 2018, the Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be released on the Nintendo Switch. Afterward, in the Summer of 2018, Capcom will also release all 8 Mega Man X games on all platforms so new players to the series can enjoy the rich history of the franchise before getting into all-new Mega Man 11.
To recap, here are the future releases we can expect from Capcom:
- Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be coming for the Switch in Spring 2018
- All 8 Mega Man X Games for the Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC in Summer 2018
