Mega Man 11 confirmed, will hit Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC in 2018

The eleventh installment of the iconic Mega Man gaming franchise will arrive on console and PC before the end of 2018.

Mega Man 11 was confirmed on Monday, during a live stream commemorating the 30th anniversary of the franchise, which first arrived on the NES back in 1987.

The new 2.5D platformer will be available for Nintendo Switch, Sony PS4, Xbox One and PC and will be the first game since Mega Man 10 arrived back in 2010.

Capcom said all the characters and environments will be hand-drawn by Yuji Ishihara, and include a new design for Mega Man himself. Director Koji Oda and producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, both veterans of the series, are also on board.

Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait until next summer for more details on the game.

You can see the launch trailer below, though:

As well as the new title, Capcom announced all eight of the Megaman X spin-off series, which first arrived on the SNES in 1993, will be available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime next year.

The Megaman Legacy Collections (1-6 and 7-10) will arrive on the Nintendo Switch in 2018.
