Us Mega Man fans figured Capcom took the Blue Bomber out behind the barn and shot him once the man who produced his games, Keiji Inafune, left the company. But it turns out Mega Man isn't dead. He was just sleeping.
He'll be waking up with a vengeance in 2018. Not only are all the Mega Man X games (1 through 8) coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch(!!) in 2018, but so is Mega Man 11.
Capcom announced the re-release of the X games and the existence of Mega Man 11 on its livestream celebrating the little robot boy's 30th anniversary. The trailer for the game shows off a unique art style that resembles Mega Man 8, but still appears to use 3D "sprites" in lieu of the PlayStation era's hand-drawn art.
Mega Man 11 is coming in late 2018. Get equipped with serene anticipation.
