Capcom announces Mega Man 11 for Switch, PS4, Xbox, PC

Capcom makes good on its promise to resurrect older franchises, and doubles down on Nintendo Switch support

Just as we predicted days ago, Capcom has not only announced a brand new Mega Man game, but plans to bring a slew of games to the Nintendo Switch.


To celebrate 30 years of Mega Man, games-maker Capcom has revealed Mega Man 11, a brand new entry in the beloved side-scrolling franchise that will come to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch in late 2018. The game itself follows the same Metroidvania style but this time around there's 3D hand-drawn artwork that only resembles Mighty No. 9 on the surface. In fact the game looks to be everything Mighty No. 9 wanted to be.

Along with Mega Man 11 Capcom will release all Mega Man X games on the Nintendo Switch, making good on two promises at once: to continue supporting the Switch and pulling older franchises to the forefront of the company's business model.

This multi-platform release supports Capcom's wide-spread approach to game sales across digital and physical, yet another milestone the company is shooting for.
