Posted on 4 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 20 Comments | 0 Likes
Announced earlier in the week, Mega Man 11 is in development, and is heading to Switch in late 2018. It’s been seven years since the last entry in the series. It was way back in 2010 when Mega Man 10 landed on WiiWare.
In this month’s issue of Game Informer, Mega Man 11 producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya spoke about the long wait for a new Mega Man. Part of the problem was when Keiji Inafune left. Mega Man was something Inafune championed and he led the franchise, so after his departure from Capcom, a bit of a hole was left behind.

Capcom finally unveiled the long-awaited Mega Man 11 this week. Though the game is about a year off, we actually know quite a bit about it already. But the one thing we haven’t heard is how Mega Man 11 will be distributed.
Fortunately, Mega Man 11 will be sold both physically and digitally. Game Informer reported the news on its latest podcast having received a confirmation from Capcom. The company is keeping quiet on pricing for now, however.
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.”
More comments from Ishihara are located on Game Informer here.
