Mega Man 11: what is known so far
Apparently, the newest Mega Man game will be compatible with PS4, Xbox One, Switch consoles and PC. The game is to be released in 2018 and Kazuhiro Tsuchiya is to be the producer, while Koji Oda is to take the spot of the director.
Mega Man 11 will follow the line of the franchise and it will remain a 2D side-scrolling action-platformer game. According to the developers the main idea is to bring the game back to life once more. The new game will look the same as previous Mega Man versions.
A difference would be the fact that Mega Man will change his appearance when acquiring a new weapon, instead of only changing his color.
