Capcom have announced Mega Man 11, a new mainline entry in the iconic action adventure series.
Mega Man 11 was officially revealed today during a Twitch livestream to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Capcom’s long-running series. The game will come to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2018.
Capcom promise that Mega Man 11 will retain the series’ signature side-scrolling gameplay, but will now be presented in 2.5D, with hand drawn characters and environments. The redesigned Mega Man will once again take on Dr Wily’s berserk machines.
Here’s our first look at the game.

It was also announced that the wonderful Mega Man Legacy Collections 1 and 2 are coming to Switch, and all eight Mega Man X titles will come to PC, Xbox One, Switch and PlayStation 4 in Summer 2018.
The Mega Man series has sold over 32 million units since it’s NES debut in 1987.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
