All of Nintendo’s major first-party games releasing this year will be playable at EGX, including Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu! and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee!, which will be playable for the first time in Europe.

Mega Man has been seeing a renaissance as of late. There have been a few new collections over the years, but most significantly is the arrival of the brand new Mega Man 11.

According to producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, the goal with Mega Man 11 is to create a new benchmark for Mega Man titles for the next 10 years. He also said the project was possible thanks to “the volume of voices from our gamers.”

As a general Mega Man 11 tidbit, Tsuchiya said Mega Man 11 is built with Capcom’s MT Framework engine.
