The Blue Bomber makes his way back to the battlefield after quite the break in his newly released game Mega Man 11. So, to commemorate the game’s launch, Capcom has uploaded a unique trailer to give a brief preview of the new features.
Mega Man 11 is the latest in the long-running series of side-scrolling platformers since Mega Man 10, which released back in 2010. In this new title, you’ll break through robot upon robot as the titular Blue Bomber to crush the nefarious Dr. Wily and his lackeys, a new set of Robot Masters.
However, new to this franchise is the ‘dual gear’ system allowing you to upgrade Mega Man’s weapons and speed on the fly for a more unique experience. It also allows Mega Man to temporarily slow down the flow of time during play, which is an extremely powerful tool in any platformer.
The new title also has a host of other features such as new controls for easier weapon accessibility, challenge modes, leaderboards and difficulty options for new and returning players to help provide the player with a more fulfilling experience.
Mega Man 11 is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows through PC-via Steam.
Watch the trailer below:
Author’s take: I’ve played very few mega man games but 11 looks like a very solid entry point, and given the fact it’s half the price of a standard retail PS4 title, if it goes on sale I’m definitely picking it up.
