A brand new Mega Man Game was recently announced during the game's 30th-anniversary stream on Twitch. Mega Man 11 is redesigned Mega Man game for the current generation of consoles (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC). The redesigned game from the looks of it still retains all of its classic gameplay mechanics, the difference is that the upcoming game will have a hand-drawn environment and will be in 2.5D which is a much-welcomed improvement from the classic 2D design.
The characters themselves are now 3D-modeled making Megaman more flexible, in fact, the main character's appearance can now change every time he switches to a Robot Master's weapon. Since the stream was dedicated to Megaman's 30th year in the gaming industry, other classic versions of the game will also be making their way into various consoles in 2018. This includes all 8 Mega Man X Games which is scheduled to launch in Summer of 2018 and Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 which is scheduled to launch for the Switch in Spring 2018.
Mega Man 11 is scheduled for a late 2018 launch and will retain its "signature challenge" from the classic version, meaning this is going to be a hardcore game and will come equipped with difficulty options for those who are new to the genre. check out the launch trailer below and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
