    Capcom celebrated the 30-year anniversary of Mega Man during a livestream this week, in which they announced the Blue Bomber would finally be back after his last outing in 2010’s Mega Man 10. Like its predecessors, Mega Man 11 is still a 2D side-scrolling action-platformer. Mega Man X-X8 will also be coming to the PC and modern consoles.

    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. 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.

    Ain't gonna lie - kind of excited for this. Probably going to be let down - but I loves me some old school mega man. I think Mega Man 2 was my favorite...

    I guess this is good news for those that liked the series. I never was a big mega man fan. Now bomber man, that's a different story... ;)

    I never was a big Mega Man fan either.. But if they would please make with some new side scrolling Metroid games I would be VERY happy. Enough with this first person Prime business.

    I was a fan of the Mega Man games, as well as (similar in layout/action) Commander Keen and Bio Menace series. May have to check this one out!

    Kind of excited too, though Shovel Knight kind of ruined all other Mega Man style games for me. :D (it's just too perfect)

    My favorites are Mega Man, Mega Man 3, Mega Man X. I like a few of the others, but these are the only ones I've played all the way through, and they're very memorable. (especially 1 and 3)

    I enjoyed the Mega Man games, especially Mega Man 2. Really like the graphic design in the trailer.

    Feels like blasphemy to type, but they should do a Megaman movie - but with Nolan or such directing to put that dark twist on it... Nolan touch on wood man or bomb man?? C'mon would be a site to see!

    I can’t wait. If they do this with the same engine they used for the Vita remakes, I will be so on board with it. They should also remake the X series (only up to X3 tho) as well.

    Yes, AND his boss-replication systems. :D I remember the first time I got to the end of Megaman and realized that I had to beat them again.
