Mega Man 11 and Mega Man X Series Coming to PC Next Year

CapCom Unity announces Mega Man 11 is coming next year, saying the platformer sequel will come to PC as well as Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. They pile onto this news with word that they will also bring all eight games in the Mega Man X series to those same platforms during the summer of 2018. Word is: "It’s been nearly 30 years since Rock, Dr. Light’s robot lab assistant, first volunteered to be converted into a fighting robot and our hero’s place was cemented as a legendary video game icon, influencing and inspiring the action-platformer genre for years to come. Today we’re pleased to introduce you to an all-new chapter to the series’ storied history. Mega Man 11 brings a fresh new design and incredible 2.5D visuals to the classic series, leaping into the modern era of gaming with beautiful 3D-modeled characters and hand-drawn environments. Everything you know and love about the Blue Bomber and much more is here in a brand-new style! With an expert development team at Capcom, many of whom have been working at the company since the early 8-bit era, we’re revitalizing and revolutionizing Mega Man for a new generation while keeping the series’ tight classic gameplay and the heart of our beloved hero intact. Veterans can expect the series’ signature challenge, and we’re inviting new players to the mix with a variety of difficulty options to choose from in the game." They celebrate the news with a new Mega Man 11 - 30th Anniversary Trailer showing the series through the years. Here are more details on the plan:

I hope this news comes as a pleasant surprise and we thank you for your patience! We’ll have much more to share with you all on Mega Man 11 in Summer of 2018! Speaking of Summer, we also announced that we’re bringing all eight games from the Mega Man X series to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Summer 2018! Set in the far-off future of 21XX, fans of this more mature take on the classic formula will have plenty of reason to rejoice when the wall-jumping, armor-wearing, Maverick hunting X makes his debut on modern consoles with Zero and Axl in tow. We’ll have more to share on this in the coming months.

Finally, with the announcement of a new numbered entry, now is a great time to revisit all of the Blue Bomber’s classic adventures! We’ve heard your requests, and Mega Man Legacy Collection, which includes 1-6 and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, featuring 7-10 are coming to Nintendo Switch – play on the go, at home, or everywhere in between in preparation for Mega Man 11! We’re adding a Rewind feature to the first Mega Man Legacy Collection which will help you turn back the clock if you make a mistake or just need a moment to recover in the challenging 8-bit originals. These collections of retro classics will be out in Spring of 2018. Existing owners of the first collection featuring the original 8-bit entries can look forward to the Rewind feature rolling out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring of 2018 as well.
