Capcom shares Mega Man 11 concept art, talks Mega Man’s new look
Game Informer is continuing its month-long coverage of Mega Man 11 with some new concept art. Aside from the piece above, some additional images can be found below.
Game Informer’s post also includes comments from artist Yuji Ishihara. Here’s what Ishihara had to say about Mega Man’s new look:
“We were going for more 3D look, so I felt like I should include more details to really show off that he is a robot. One of the biggest changes is the separation of the joints in the wrist and ankle. I noticed that anytime people draw fan art of Mega Man, the anatomy of drawing the hand with the entire wrist and arm was difficult. With the separation, I figured that if I’m fortunate enough to have people draw fan art of this version of Mega Man, they would have an easier time.”
